TVs and digital cameras
Remember those television sales from November and December? Some manufacturers are continuing the price cuts into January, says Dan Butler, vice president of retail operations for the National Retail Federation.
While the discounts aren't likely to get any deeper than they were at the holidays, that still means price cuts of 25 percent to 35 percent on some models, he says.
Another factor that may influence TV prices is "an oversupply," particularly in the LCD and plasma market, says Jim Barry, spokesman for the Consumer Electronics Association.
And the Super Bowl next month means some deals on big-screen televisions in January, says Barry. In the weeks leading up to the big game, sales on big-screen TVs are as much a part of the landscape as ads for chips and dip.
One thing you might not peg for a January sale? Digital cameras.
Sales are down because people are using smartphones, and manufacturers want to get people into the store to buy cameras, Barry says.
