#1: Sneakers

Think your sneaker game can afford the upgrade promised by some Black Friday ads? Think again. According to a RunRepeat price analysis study, “sneakers are cheaper on 66% of days throughout the year than they are on Black Friday … you can pay as much as 57% [MORE] on Black Friday” than any other day of the year!

#2: Jewelry

In the market to buy some bling? The Balance Everyday warns that you’re getting the WORST deals on jewelry during the holiday season, Black Friday through February. Instead of jewelry shopping on Black Friday, consider waiting a few months to catch an off-peak seasonal sale in the springtime!

#3: Winter Clothing & Accessories

Many regions experience a dip into cooler temperatures just before Black Friday, inspiring a restock of winter clothing including jackets, sweaters, and gloves. But retailers won’t put those items up for sale until late December, says MSN Money. Consider making do with what you have, if you can, until January sales arrive.

#4: Gift Cards

MSN Money also notes that “often in December you’ll find gift-card deals, such as an additional, lower-value card thrown in with your purchase for free.” So hold off on purchasing these practical gifts until after the Black Friday hoopla dies down.
