Toys are among the worst buys on Black Friday. Toys are among the items that “see their demand peak around November. Typically, prices on toys “drop like a rock two weeks before Christmas.” This is because retailers usually need to clear out their inventory before Christmas, since sales of the season’s hot toys die out after the holidays.
2. Winter clothing
Winter clothes are usually not a good deal on Black Friday. Clothing tends to cost more in the season it is needed. Just as consumers buy warm-weather clothing in the spring, they tend to buy winter clothing when the weather turns cold. Usually, you see low prices on winter clothing in the spring, as retailers try to clear out their stock from the previous season.
3. Holiday decorations
Wait until the end of the season for better deals.
4. Higher-end HDTV
High-end TVs are not a good buy during Black Friday. Instead, companies tend to give bigger discounts for lower-end TVs.
5. Electronics accessories
Companies will often offer selected electronic devices, such as TVs, at a heavy discount in order to get customers to come to their stores. This entices consumers to buy other products at regular or even marked-up prices. Stores will often sell a headline product for no profit or at a loss, and then look to profit by selling accessories, such as cables, at a considerable mark up.
6. Fitness equipment
Consumers are often eager to fulfill New Year’s resolutions that involve losing weight. Because of this, gym memberships and demand for exercise equipment typically spike at the start of the year. As a result, consumers get much better deals in January.”
7. Home improvement supplies and tools
Home improvement tools are best bought around Father’s Day.
8. Gas Grills
The reason, is that around September retailers are “overstocked and trying to make room for the holiday,” so discounts tend to be better. Additionally, selection is usually limited on Black Friday because gas grills are out of season.
9. Automotive supplies
Any purchases for your car are best made in spring, leading up to Father’s Day.”
