But, the truly savvy ones will also include Amazon on that list, because it's possible to find incredible deals on the platform if you know where to look.
Plus, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday just around the corner, you can bet there will be good deals on a USA-originated website. For the uninitiated, Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving in the United States. It traditionally marks the start of the Christmas shopping season, with many stores offering highly promoted physical sales. The event concludes on Cyber Monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving when people are encouraged to shop online instead of heading to the physical stores.
Here are some brands and categories where you can score the best deals on Amazon.
We know that it's hard to get Apple products at a discount. However, if you catch price drops at the correct time (such as on Black Friday and Cyber Monday), items such as the AirPods Max with Smart Case, Airpods Pro 2nd Gen, 2022 Apple 10.9-inch iPad, Apple watch and more can go for more than $50 off!
One of my best-kept secrets that I almost didn't want to reveal: Beer, wines and especially spirits on Amazon often go for incredible discounts not found anywhere else. My go-to spirits, as well as some of the bestsellers which can go for up to 50 per cent off, are as follow:
Children's Toys (Science,Tech, Engineering, Arts & Math)
Amazon's STEAM store delivers a catalogue of over 2,000 educational toys and books in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths for children of all ages.
Known for the excellent sound quality of their products, authentic Bose products can be found at a discount on Amazon. Check out this Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 going at 27 per cent off!
