Three purchases to put off until later:
1. Newly announced iPhones
If the iPhone 8 does hit shelves this September, we’d urge Apple-hungry fiends to hold off on the purchase — especially since some consumer whiz-kids reckon that the latest iteration could cost $1,000! It’s likely that we won’t see discounts on the iPhone 8 until the week of Black Friday, since it wasn’t until Nov. 22 that the iPhone 7 saw its first drop in 2016.
If you’re stocking up on the good stuff, hold off a little later as National Coffee Day falls on Oct. 1 this year. In previous years, we not only saw many free cups of coffee from our favorite outlets, but stores like Starbucks also offered promotions on bags of beans and tumblers.
We may see an abundance of appliance deals during Labor Day weekend, but we will always encourage our readers to hold out until Black Friday rolls around for the best in home appliance offers. Last year, just 12 percent of September’s appliance deals met the Editors’ Choice mark, which is below the monthly average.
Case in point: Last year, Home Depot’s ever-popular appliance sale saw Labor Day stock discounted by up to 30 percent. But, the store cut up to 40 percent off the same items for Black Friday. That extra 10 percent discount can make a big difference on large purchases.
