1. Toys

1.Toys: There’s no secret that you will definitely see some toys on sale on Black Friday. You should, however, wait for bigger savings that are likely in the coming days and weeks. According to experts; retailers often discount toys more heavily closer to Dec. 25 to lure parents before the holiday.

2. Latest smartphones

2. Latest smartphones: We know you’ve been waiting for Black Friday to put your hands on the latest smartphone, but you need to wait a little longer if you want to save more because deeper discounts on the device will arrive when it loses its novelty.

3.Jewelry

3.Jewelry: Believe it or not, the best time to buy jewelry for your beloved ones is in January; right before Valentine’s Day.

4. Fitness Equipment

4. Fitness Equipment: Just like jewelry, the prime time for discounts on fitness equipment is January when people are still motivated to take care of their health status, and determined to achieve their new year’s fitness resolutions.

5. Outdoor furniture

5. Outdoor furniture: A lot of people think that the best time to invest in outdoor furniture is Winter. The reality is that most outdoor products are put on clearance as soon as summer ends. So Black Friday is definitely not the best time to get the Patio furniture you have your eyes on.

6. High-end laptop computers

6. High-end laptop computers: Here’s a tip that will help save you hundreds on your next gadget: Budget and mainstream laptops are cheapest in July and September.

7. Final sale items

7. Final sale items: If you’re planning to return or exchange what you buy, then try avoiding products that are on “final sale” since many retailers are facing serious financial woes and even bankruptcy in some cases.

8. Bedding

8. Bedding: Another “secret” we’d like to share with you is that discounts on bedding might reach 80% in January and not on Black Friday.

9. Mattresses

9. Mattresses: According to Consumer Reports, February is the time of year when people in search of better sleep stand to save the most on mattresses. So most probably you’ll get the best deal on your mattress in February and not on Black Friday.

10. Boxed chocolate

10. Boxed chocolate: If you have a sweet tooth and you were thinking of indulging yourself with chocolate while saving the most on Black Friday, then we’re sorry to inform you that you’d be saving the most during the weeks between Valentine’s day and Easter. So would your cravings wait until then?
