ยท 5 min read

November is the most shopped month on the calendar and with good reason. It’s impossible to talk about the best deals in November without mentioning Black Friday, which is known to offer the most incredible deals of the entire year. We are in the thick of the holiday season which means everyone, and we mean everyone, will be shopping. When you throw Cyber Monday in to sweeten the deal, online shopping provides the best savings. We are equipping you with the ultimate Top 10 guide to shopping in November, which leaves no stone unturned and no dollar unsaved.


1. Winter Clothing

This is the month, and not a moment before, to shop the huge discounts that will be offered on winter coats, jackets and boots. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday on the horizon at the end of the month, retailers are planning to make lots of room for new inventory and seasonal items. Historically speaking, the best time to buy for this particular category is in the week leading up to Cyber Monday.


2. Game Consoles, PC and video games

Video game console prices drop dramatically in November. You will see competitive prices from major retail chains which will help to lower the cost of some of the most popular (and expensive) products to more affordable prices. In fact, deals on game consoles will go up by as much as double the deals available in other months of the year.

If you’re in the market for a new console for yourself, partner or child, be sure to follow the news of your preferred manufacturer. Major companies like Xbox and Nintendo will share news of impending releases months in advance. If a new model will be hitting the shelves around the holiday sales, it’s unlikely that you’ll see any price drops there, but their previous generation consoles will be dirt cheap.

We’re not just anticipating huge deals on game consoles; November also brings the lowest prices on PC and video games. You may not be in the market for a new console at this time, but it’s always a good time to stock up on new games, especially when they are on sale.


3. Cookware

If you’re one to spend time in the kitchen, you know that quality cookware can set you back quite a bit of money. With holiday parties and gatherings in full swing, it will be necessary to equip your kitchen with all of the items you will need to bring your special menus to fruition. Thanksgiving sales will offer you the most significant discounts on cookware.
