Kim’s Opinion: The tech not to buy in October

We’ve all heard the stories about the best and worst time to buy certain things. Candy? Just after Halloween and Valentine’s Day is best. Big-screen TVs? Just before the Super Bowl.

Don’t buy grills in July — they’re too in-demand. Now, with October here, there’s one category to stay away from: Technology.

I’m going to save you a ton of money right now. Listen up, there are really no good sales going on right now in tech.

It’s a really bad time to buy any electronics. I’m talking about TVs, laptops, tablets, phones, headphones, surround-sound speakers and the lot.

Black Friday deals and those pre-Black Friday deals will be here before you know it. So far, we’re expecting to see doorbusters and online sales for a 40-inch 4K TV for only $125. The overall savings are significant, as prices on tech between now and Black Friday usually drop 30%.

Online doorbusters will begin on Monday of Thanksgiving week and the ads start appearing in less than a month.

Do yourself a favor. Resist temptation, and save a boatload of money.
