Make a note of this date in your calendar – Friday November 25th. The big day falls a little earlier this year, although as always it’s the day after Thanksgiving. Cyber Monday, a few days later – on Monday, 11/28 be more precise. Coupled with Prime Day now behind us, this is the busiest shopping time of the year.
It may seem strange to think of vacation deals right now, but it’s good to be prepared. Especially since there will be sales not only in these few days.
To stay ahead of the competition, many retailers will be slashing prices on a number of items starting in early November. There’s no traditional set date for when these early sales start, so you can still find some great deals even in October. Some items might sell out quickly, so you might want to get in early.
There’s also the Amazon “Kick-off Countdown to Black Friday” offers that take place in mid-November every year. This gives Amazon Prime members early access to Lightning deals. It’s therefore worth having a Prime membership around the holidays (register here). Take advantage of the savings and then decide whether you want to keep the membership after the free trial month is over. If not, just cancel before the 30 days are up and you won’t be charged.
This will be one of the better times to replace your worn out gym gear and upgrade to a newer generation. Activity trackers, smartwatches, and other items will all be on sale.
Black Friday 2022: Fitbit, Garmin, Apple, Samsung and more are all offering discounts
Mind you, some of the latest versions might be excluded. Businesses usually wait a while before offering discounts on new items. But that doesn’t mean we won’t necessarily get deals on the Fitbit Sense 2, Versa 4, and Inspire 3. All of these were introduced a few weeks ago. It’s always a possibility. The same applies to the Apple Watch Series 8 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 line.
Garmin, on the other hand, released a number of devices earlier this year. So these are more likely to be offered at a discount since they were released earlier this year. We’re still waiting for the first sales of the Garmin Forerunner 955 and 255. Both saw the light of day in early June.
What’s certain is that most wearables makers will aggressively slash prices on previous generations of devices to clear inventory. That happens every year. And some of them will be excellent buying opportunities.
Let’s take the Fitbit Versa 4 and Versa 3 as an example. The two generations are practically identical. The same goes for the Apple Watch Series 8 and 7. There’s very little that can separate them. So you might as well save a few bucks and go with the previous generation. Especially when you get a whopping discount off the regular retail price.
We cover all of these sales, of course, sifting through each deal, highlighting the best ones and giving tips on how to avoid rip-offs. So keep checking back as we update these daily as things start to get busy. And on Black Friday and Cyber Monday we update the offer list several times a day. We also present particularly tasty offers.
The other option is to look for them yourself. Amazon and other retailers will make this easier by having their own Black Friday section on their websites. This saves you time because you don’t have to search through the entire inventory to take advantage of good deals.
