First off, here's their list of what to buy now: Brand name HDTVs (because new models are unveiled at a January electronics sale); fitness gear (stores such as AthletaJoe's New Balance, and REI had sales of 50 percent, 60 percent, and 50 percent off respectively last year); home furniture (new models released in February), especially mattresses; consumer electronics; clothing and accessories; and, of course, Christmas decor.
