What To Buy In October

BY: Christopher Mahar | Dec 11, 2018

With the changing of the season comes new opportunities to save big on some major purchases. Fall deals are everywhere, and we look to Consumer Reports for a monthly breakdown of when certain products will have their biggest bargains. These categories are going to be hot this October, so watch our pages for the sales and promo codes that will keep the cash in your pocket. What to buy in October: gas grills, lawnmowers, tractors, desktop computers, and digital cameras

Desktop Computers

Surprisingly, between the back-to-school sales of late summer and the buying bonanza of Black Friday, the quiet days of October are a great time to snag deals on desktop computers. All month, use this promo code from HP to take 10% off desktops, or use this Lenovo promo code to take 15% off a ThinkCentre. Desktop towers are usually sold without monitors, so use this Dell promo code to take 35% off a sweet dual monitor setup.

Digital Cameras

Do you love fall flavors and quality cameras? Than you'll really love October! This month, Canon is running their Pumpkin Spice Sale, which can land you up to $450 off select refurbished cameras and lenses. Best Buy is also running their Fall Photography Sale, with up to $350 off select DSLR cameras.

Gas Grills

One of the general rules of supply and demand is that as the season for a product ends, the price goes down. Grilling might be more popular in warm weather, but you can get killer deals on gas grills as the temperature falls. Take $50 off of all Weber Spirit Grills at Home Depot right now, and sweeten the deal even more with this $10 off promo code. The good folks over at are offering up 20% off in savings on their gas grills, and we've found a promo code to take another $25 off your selection.

Lawnmowers & Tractors

Save up to 45% at Home Depot on outdoor power equipment (and remember that $10 off promo code!) including lawnmowers and riding lawnmowers. Tractor Supply Co. is offering some choice deals as well, like $20 off a Cub Cadet Signature Cut Mower, and an incredible $500 off a Cub Cadet Z-FORCE Zero-Turn Mower.
