MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - These seasonal sales often extend into the month of December, so you can save money and check things off that long list just in time to sit back and enjoy the holidays.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year to cash in on sales! Consumer Reports tracked 35 products that typically offer the deepest discounts in December, including popular gift items like headphones, smart speakers, and tablets.

Here are the top products to look out for in this month’s Best Time to Buy.
