The best time to purchase a smoothie maker is in December. Consumer Reports indicates that although many stores provide holiday discounts, home appliances – including smoothie makers – have an additional discount. This is due to stores trying to get rid of the previous year's home appliances.
Each year, manufacturers unveil their newest home appliance models in fall. Stores, anticipating the arrival of these new models in winter, must remove the previous year's models to make room for these new models. As a result, many stores provide discounts on last year's inventory. There are additional discounts because of the approaching holidays.
