After shopping for gifts in December, you may not be thinking about shopping more this month. But for certain products, January is a good time to find great sales and deep discounts.  

Though retail sales usually drop off after the holiday rush, according to data from the U.S. Census, Consumer Reports analysts say there are still great deals to be found on a variety of products, including television sets, exercise equipment, and linen.

Below are some of the deals you’ll find this month.

And if you want to know what’s on sale the rest of the year, check our calendar of deals.

Price Cuts on Fitness Products

If your New Year’s resolution is to create a home gym in your garage or basement, you’re in luck. Treadmills and ellipticals go on sale this time of year, so you’ll be able to get more for your money. Track your progress toward your fitness goals by picking up a digital scale on sale as well.

Treadmills. Treadmills are the most popular workout machines in the U.S. There’s an option for every budget and fitness goal, which can make the decision-making process a bit more complicated. The key is to find one that’s easy and comfortable to use, which means trying it out in person. Before heading to the stores, read through our treadmill buying guide to better understand the available options. And to dig into the nitty-gritty, check out our treadmill ratings as well.

Ellipticals. Elliptical exercisers are part stair-climber, part cross-country-ski machine. Unlike a treadmill, which allows you to move free-form, an elliptical constrains you to its movement. That’s why it’s especially important to test out the machines in a store before you buy one. Check out our elliptical buying guide and elliptical ratings to make sure the machine you select has the quality and features you want.

Bathroom scales. Today’s digital scales track more than just your weight, and even with deep discounts this month, these additional features can drive up the price. Before paying more for a scale that’s claimed to analyze your body-fat percentage, check out our scales buying guide to see whether that feature is worth it. According to our testers, weight measurements were consistent and accurate across most digital scales, but body-fat measurements were not.

TVs on Sale

If you didn’t score a new TV on Black Friday, the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl are also a great time to find deep discounts. It pays to do your research before heading to the store to make sure you’re getting the best TV for your money. Display televisions are set to look great under fluorescent lights but may not look quite as vibrant in your home.

Consider the size. If you’re buying a newer, Ultra High Definition TV, also called a 4K TV, it will have a screen resolution of 8 million pixels, or four times the number of individual pixels as an HD set. The benefits of a UHD TV are more apparent in larger screen sizes—say, 65 inches and above—or when you’d like to sit closer to the TV than you could with a 1080p set.

If you’re considering regular high-def TV, we believe most consumers would be best served by at least a 40- to 42-inch screen for a primary television. A 46- or 50-inch set is often preferable in rooms where you’ll be sitting 8 to 10 feet or so from the screen. Consider an even bigger set for spacious family rooms. 

Our TV buying guide will help you get the most bang for your buck, no matter how much or how little you want to spend. Subscribers should consult our TV ratings to make sure you get a set that performed well in our lab tests.

Bedding Bargains

Long known as the “white sale,” deep discounts on sheet sets are a January tradition. Take advantage of sales this month to invest in quality linens that will last. Choosing the right sheet set can save you money and prevent headaches in the long run, but prices alone do not indicate quality. Consumer Reports’ sheet tests showed that most sets left a lot to be desired.

When shopping, keep in mind that there’s more to great sheets than thread count. In our most recent tests, the top-scoring percale sheets’ claimed thread count was only 280. But the sheets were strong, shrank very little, and easily fit mattresses up to 17 inches high, even after we washed and dried them five times.

To be safe, make sure you know the return policy before heading to the cash register.
