Should you buy smart home equipment on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
Most online sales on smart home equipment will be going live by Black Friday itself. This means if any smart home gadget runs out of stock during Black Friday, there won’t be an additional restock for Cyber Monday. With all the pent up demand due to the pandemic, your best bet is to start shopping early. Jump on any Black Friday smart home deals that appeal to you or run the risk of having limited sales available during Cyber Monday. If you do find a better deal during Cyber Monday, you can always return the gadgets you don’t want. Large retailers like Best Buy and Amazon have extended holiday return policies in place this year so you can ship back your unwanted goods till the end of January.
