Every month has its best buys, and November deals are no exception. And we don’t just mean on Black Friday! The Listspoke with The Penny Hoarder’s savings expert Lisa Rowan, who shared some of the month’s best buys. Plus, we rounded up some food freebies to look out for!
1. Small Appliances
First on our list of November deals? Look out for sales on small appliances. Retailers know that many people have these on their holiday wish list – and that even more people are looking to buy appliances for themselves. Lisa says expect deals on crock pots, coffee makers, Instant pots, and high-end blenders. “Those are things that we’re going to see in the weeks leading up to Black Friday,” notes our expert. Anticipate savings of up to 20 to 30% off – and compound savings with coupons! “Make sure you’re stacking deals if you shop at retailers that have coupons, like Bed Bath & Beyond.”
2. Taco Bell
What better’s that November deals? November freebies, duh! Head down to Taco Bell November 1, when the chain is giving away free tacos in honor of Mookie Betts stealing a base in the World Series. Simply visit your nearest Taco Bell between 2-6pm to enjoy a complimentary Doritos Locos Tacos. No purchase is necessary, but the offer is limited to one free taco per customer while supplies last. Visit their website for all the deets!
3. Wedding Gowns
You’ll also find November deals on wedding gowns, and Lisa explains why: “The busiest time of year for engagements and proposals is during the holiday season…Which means people need to shop for wedding dresses.” It turns out bridal shops are also less busy during the holidays – making it the perfect time to pop in and see what deals can be had, like sample sales! “There’s always samples on the floor – the items that are tried on – that are often sold at the end of that season for a deep discount,” Lisa shares. You might even score sample dresses discounted as much as 50% off! But this window of opportunity closes quickly with demand for wedding dresses picking back up in January. So don’t delay!
4. Philly’s Best
In case you haven’t heard the news, November 4 is National Sandwich Day, and Philly’s Best is serving up a freebie you don’t want to miss! QSR Magazine reports you can get a free Philly’s Best Cheesesteak or Hoagie when buy one, plus buy two medium fountain drinks. This is one of those November deals you’ll want to enjoy with a friend!
5. November Deals on Toys & Games
We can’t highlight the best November deals without mentioning this high-demand category: toys and games! “It probably seems obvious that toys and games are really popular during the holiday season,” admits Lisa. “But retailers are trying to get ahead of the game this year by starting their sales even earlier.” Why, you ask? Welp, it has to do with Toys ‘R’ Us going out of business. Their closure left a big hole in the market, creating opportunity for other stores to lure in customer early with rolled-back prices. “Keep an eye out now for those catalogs that come out that are packed with toys from places that you may not have thought about shopping for toys,” insists Lisa. “Retailers are really stepping up their game with some of their selection and their availability for toys and games.” So keep an eye on the circulars and websites for “buy one, get one free” deals and more!
Arooga’s is celebrating our armed forces in a very generous way!
