Electronics are among some of the best, most-coveted gifts, but top-of-the-line tech isn’t cheap. Here’s a look at the best time to buy electronics for those on your gift list (or for yourself) before the holiday season passes us by.

What (and where) to buy electronics on Thanksgiving weekend

Unsurprisingly, Black Friday is one of the best times to buy electronics. Electronics are the most shopped-for items on the day, so many retailers and brands put them up at considerable discounts. Remember, though, that Friday itself isn’t the only day of deals on Thanksgiving weekend.

Many stores start their sales on Thanksgiving Day. Checking stores and websites on Thursday evening is a great way to get hot items while they’re still in stock. This may be the best time to buy a TV, especially newer 4K smart TVs, since these are popular Black Friday items and are likely to sell out quickly.

The Monday after Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday, is the best time to buy electronics on Amazon. This day is all about online-only sales, many of which are tech-centered.

Watch for new product release days

One of the best times to buy electronics that is a little less obvious is right when new gadgets are released. When a new version of a phone, TV, gaming console, or other device comes out, the earlier generations typically go on sale. While everyone else rushes to buy the newest edition, you can grab previous generations at a discount.

Keep an eye out for products release dates, which often happen around the holidays. For example, November is traditionally a big release month for video games and their consoles. If you wanted to grab the last-gen console or earlier game in an ongoing series, look to buy them in November.

Lean on “Super Saturday”

If you’re running late on holiday tech shopping, you still have a chance on Super Saturday. This is the Saturday before Christmas when companies know that last-minute shoppers will be looking to buy, and are looking to capitalize on the rush by putting on-demand items, including electronics, on sale.

Super Saturday set a new record in 2019 for one-day sales, though, so brick-and-mortar stores may be crowded. If you have the flexibility (i.e., the gift is for you or for someone you won’t see until well after the holidays), you may want to shop online—keeping in mind that some of the most popular items, like smartphones, laptops, and gaming systems, may sell out before this day.

What electronics to buy every month of the year

The holiday season is almost upon us for this year; if you’re already looking to get a jumpstart on next year, though, here’s the best time to buy these electronics:

January: Fitness equipment

February: TVs

March: Digital cameras and grilling equipment

April: Vacuums and lawnmowers

May: Kitchen appliances

June: Video games

July: Personal electronics

August: Laptops and tablets

September: iPhones and large appliances

October: Air conditioners and smart thermostats

November: Video game consoles

December: Personal appliances and smart home devices
