The best New Year’s sales 2019

New Year’s sales tip from the experts

Here’s a great piece of advice for everyone shopping online: look for open-box or refurbished items in excellent condition during New Year’s sales. People who don’t exactly get what they want and never play with the tech often return it. US retailers have to label these items open box and the typically come with significant price drops.

For example, that Apple HomePod deal for $250, down from $350, was actually price matched by an open-box discount that lasted  a lot longer. In one case, we got it for $238, and it was listed in excellent condition.

The same will go with items like this PS4 Pro:

Google Home Hub $129 now $99 at Walmart
Google’s best smart speaker has a screen attached to it, and it’s $30 off of its launch price. Really, if you bought this in October, you must be kicking yourself due to its New Year’s price drop.View Deal

Google Wifi $300 now $249 at Walmart
The best mesh WiFi router in our books is the Google Wifi, and getting three at a time will save you $50. Retire that old router that never seems to extend as far as you’d like and buy this one.View Deal
