The expert team of deal hunters at CNET has tons of collective experience. Our team looks at deals 365 days a year, not only during big shopping events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Why's that important? We know what to look for.
Our team isn't duped by retailers marking up the original price to make it look like something is a deal. We aren't advertising bad products that may be cheaper. We are looking at all the big (trusted) retailers and seeing where the best price is. Several factors go into determining if something is a "deal" or not, including:
- How does this price compare to pricing in the last 30 days?
- Has it been significantly less expensive at any point this year?
- Is it a trusted retailer with good customer service and return policy?
- Is there a shipping or handling fee? Or any other fee?
What we are saying here is that our team takes a lot into consideration before pushing a deal out to our readers. We want you to trust the picks that we make and we want to help you save money in your shopping journey.
