In this category, Target, an online and in-store for everything from electronics and groceries to clothing is typically the forerunner. The brand traditionally hosts the first of its semi-yearly toy sales in January. Other retailers also do the same, to sell off any leftover games or toys holiday shoppers didn’t buy. 

Discounts may be particularly good since these items were already steep discounts even before December. You can find these deals on Kohl’s, Target, or even Amazon online marketplace. Potential savings for children playing things can be between 40% to 50%.

Expect sales at home goods stores, departmental stores, and retailers discount smaller kitchen equipment, such as microwaves, blenders, and air fryers. However, it may not be an appropriate time for major appliances. So, you should wait until Presidents Day for those other ones. 

In January, you can find good small kitchen equipment deals in Wayfair, Macy’s, Woot, or Amazon. Potential savings for such deals are around 20% or more.

Open Box Electronics

Retailers offer shoppers extra discounts on open box devices that buyers have opened but returned unused. Generally, not everyone wants electronic gifts. Hence, there are bound to be returns of these items. 

While there may be a limited selection, it’s still worth checking for discounts on smart home tech, tablets, and smartwatches. Open box electronic deals are available on Amazon, Best Buy Outlets, and Walmart. You can save between 40% to 60% on these types of deals.
