9 Things on Deep Discount in November

It’s finally here: the biggest month in the deal savings calendar!

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are both prominently positioned in November, so the 11th month of the year has tech deals galore.

Even though we’re about to lose an hour of daylight when the clocks change, you shouldn’t sleep on some of November’s other hidden savings categories. Because there are also other items on which you can get a great deal this month.

Here Are the Best November Deals

TVs

OK, so TVs are the obvious category here for deals in November. Historically they’re one of the main items retailers hope will entice you into the store for Black Friday.

But if you’re looking for a new screen, you may find a dearth of deals until we hit Black Friday weekend. That’s owing in part to supply chain crunches stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

A little patience this year is likely to pay off. We’ve already seen a few early deals including a TCL 55″ smart Android TV on sale last week at Walmart. That deal has already expired, but Walmart has come up with a few other early Black Friday deals we’re covering here.

If you want to score the very best deals, you may want to try holding out for a $300 price point for a 65″ 4K TV during Black Friday weekend. That’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen!

Food

November has a few notable food holidays that usually offer you the opportunity to get some discounted or free food:

  • National Sandwich Day – Nov. 3
  • National Donut Day – Nov. 5
  • Fast Food Day – Nov. 16

National Donut Day is something of a twofer. That’s because the November celebration is actually the second such holiday in the calendar year; it’s preceded by a first National Donut Day in June!

(Editor’s note: Curious about why two holidays with the same name exist? Get the “hole” story here.)

Small Appliances

Small appliances are promoted heavily during the holiday shopping season. This is the time to take advantage of great deals on things like personal blenders and coffee makers (which can make great gifts). Be on the lookout for $10 price points from the likes of Belk, Kohl’s and Macy’s among others.

Veterans Day

November 11 is when we honor those who have served our nation in the armed forces. Although we can never express our gratitude enough, many companies provide free or discounted goods and services to both veterans and active-duty service members as a small token of appreciation. Sign up for our newsletter to be informed of this year’s deals!

Wedding Dresses

While most people try to plan a spring or summer wedding, October is traditionally the last big month for nuptials. So that puts November firmly into the off-season for wedding dresses.

So it’s a great month to snag a deal on a wedding dress. At the very least, you won’t face a lot of competition from other buyers this time of year.

Winter Sports Gear

With winter just around the corner, now is a great time to pick up a deal on winter sports gear.

Be on the lookout for big savings on snowshoes, ice skates, hand warmers, thermal socks and more. We did a deep dive on the best times to buy that last item in particular. Our research shows you’re likely to pay $9 less on average this month for a pair of thermal socks to keep your feet warm when you’re doing outdoor activities.

Also, if you’re looking to pay bottom-dollar for sports gear, buying used might be a good option for cost savings. REI has a used gear section, and stores such as Play It Again Sports offer pre-owned sporting equipment at a discount.

Speaking of winter sports, John C. wrote us to say that he’s saved more than $840 on ski lift tickets by purchasing Indy Pass for 80+ independent resorts throughout North America. They’re currently offering early season pricing through the end of November. (Way to go, John!)

Winterizing Materials

Pipe insulation, door sweeps and caulking supplies all tend to go on sale this month. And while you’re at it, now is a great time to prepare for winter storms. Snow Joe often runs great daily deals on ice scrapers, snow shovels and more.

Items such as weather strips really can help you save heated air from escaping your home (and the cost of heating from escaping your wallet).

Halloween Candy and Costumes on Clearance

Early November is the best time to get Halloween candy and costumes at rock bottom clearance prices. Sure, you’ll have to pick through leftovers, but you can score some real deals!

Stores like Walmart and warehouse clubs like Costco, Sam’s Club and BJ’s are great to check for leftover costumes. And don’t forget about pet costumes for next year at retailers like Chewy.

Softlines

Bedding, throw blankets, towels and air mattresses are likely to go on sale in November. And the timing is perfect when you think about it; these so-called “softlines” can help get your home ready for guests during the holidays.

Though we are seeing early deals now, especially from stores like Macy’s and Kohl’s, we expect to see more as Black Friday approaches.

Final Thoughts

There’s so much on sale in November as retailers begin the traditional year-end holiday push. Additional product categories you’re likely to find deals on this month include bakeware and cookware, streaming devices like Roku and Chromecast and humidifiers and diffusers.
