Best Vacation Deals – Consumer Reports


If you haven’t finished your holiday shopping yet, you can still find discounts on many items for everyone on your list. Retailers have holiday sales in the weeks leading up to Christmas, and some of the prices are the same as we saw on Black Friday, while many more are approaching.

Consumer Reports has been monitoring the prices of everything we’ve been testing in our labs and at home for weeks, from home and kitchen products like coffeemakers and vacuum cleaners to electronics like headphones and televisions. And we’ll continue to do so until the end of the year to help you find the best deals. We take into account the quality of the product, the asking price and the typical cost of the item to determine if something is really a good deal.

Now that there are only a few weeks left in the year, it is especially important to pay attention to shipping and delivery times when ordering online. It takes longer and longer for packages to arrive due to global supply chain issues, so it is good to be flexible when purchasing. If the exact item you want doesn’t arrive on time, consider something else instead. You can also try shopping in stores or look for alternatives like in-store pickup that can bypass shipping delays.

Below you’ll find some of our favorite deals available right now on some of the best products CR has tested.
