Clark Howard: There Are Some Deals Out There Right Now

“I just want you to know that for December, which is normally the time you pay much higher prices on Christmas goods, prices will be higher than they were during the Black Friday season, but they won’t ratchet way high like they typically do as we move days closer to Christmas.”

So where are those deals? We’ve listed some of the best sales we could find from ClarkDeals.com, our sister site.

As always, Clark wants you to compare prices before you spend your hard-earned money. Here are the items that Clark says you can still catch on sale.

Where Are the Great Deals Right Now?


Best toys on sale

Toy inventories are in oversupply, Clark says, “which is really bad for their stockholders and really good for you.”

“The hottest most sought-after things, whatever they are this year, are like any normal year,” Clark says. “Those few items always end up being hard to get. But what I’ve noticed a lot is that, on items that are in peak demand in terms of the toy aisle, retailers are saying ‘We’ve got them,’ and they’re listing a high price, while all the other toy items seem to be a real deal.”

Here are some current deals:


bikes for sale

“If you have a kid you’d like to get a bike for, bike prices are the lowest I can remember in forever for a kids’ bike or even an adult’s bike. So this is a year that is going to be very friendly and favorable for you shopping,” Clark says.

Here are some current deals:

“Laptops are cheaper now than they were during back to school, which is a very unusual pattern, because the inventories are just too large,” Clark says.

clothes on sale

Clark says because the prices for clothing are so low right now, it’s a good time to snap up any apparel you’ve been wanting.

“I’ve talked like a broken record about the clothing market and how overstocked clothing is,” he says. “That’s going to continue into the new year.”
