Tablets, e-readers and GPS devices

Electronic tablets and e-readers are less expensive now, Barry says. Tablets are on the market starting at $300 -- which is about 40 percent less than they were last year this time, he says.

And with two major e-reader makers bringing upgraded models onto the market recently, the prices of their traditional models have dropped, he says. With some e-readers starting at $79, "this is a very competitive category," Barry says.

GPS systems tend to get popular this time of year, Butler says. Because they tend to be a hot gift item, look for heavy promotion but small discounts, he says. You can expect to save, in some cases, 10 percent to 20 percent.
