October is the time to close deals on garden implements, smart audio system, mattresses

As the calendar moves into October, it’s time to escape the pumpkin spice lattes and save money on household goods.

Consumer Reports tracks the costs of its top-rated products and identifies their lowest price once they go on sale.

First, Amazon’s huge tech announcement in September is expected to imply financial savings in October on some merchandise.

“They announced a smart robot, a smart thermostat and a fitness tracker and a brand new Echo Show. This Echo Show means they should start selling older items,” said Samantha Gordon, Consumer Reports buyer.

The second-generation Echo Show smart speaker is now on clearance for $ 116 at Best Buy.

If your fall chores require a chainsaw, CR says the Oregon Electric 603352 corded chainsaw has been reduced to $ 85 at Walmart. It’s usually around $ 100. The chainsaw is light and useful for hedges.

The Google Nest Learning Thermostat fell to $ 199 at ABT Electronics, Home Depot, Amazon, and Staples. Consumer Reports says it’s probably the best they’ve looked at.

The First Alert Onelink Smart smoke and carbon monoxide detector is lowered to $ 82 on Amazon. It may be managed from your phone.

As the Columbus Day vacation approaches, look for great deals on mattresses.

“We tend to recommend never paying full price on a mattress because they’re on sale so often,” Gordon said. “Wait a few days before the holiday weekend for the mattress manufacturers to announce their gross sales. “

October is usually the time to find deals on ovens, ranges and cooktops. Keep in mind that the shortage of chips means that the specific device model you want may be out of stock. So if you need it for holiday cooking, shop early and be flexible on the models.
