Learn more.September is a great time to save on a variety of items across multiple categories. There are three main reasons you'll find so many ways to save: Labor Day, back to school shopping, and the seasonal shift from summer to fall.All of these factors lead retailers to drop their prices on these 15 products, among others. There are opportunities to save on outdoor items like grills, lawn mowers, and leaf blowers, as well as discounts on tech, including cell phones, printers, and wireless routers. Add to that price drops on freezers, air purifiers, and cooking appliances, and you can makes upgrades across your whole home for less. Plus, you'll often see sales on other large appliances, mattresses, and even apparel and home goods this month.Consumer Reports tracks the prices of the products we test to determine the times of year they will most likely be at their best discounts. To learn more about what goes on sale and when, check out our calendar of deals.GrillsLabor Day is the last chance of the year to find grills on sale. Retailers are looking to make room in their warehouses as the outdoor cooking season draws to a close. And with a few months left until it's too cold to barbecue often (at least in some parts of the country), you might as well make the most of the fall grilling season. So whether you want a new charcoal, gas, pellet, or kamado grill, keep an eye out for sales this month.Grill prices can range from as little as 0 to more than ,000, depending on what you want. CR tests grills to fit every cooking style and budget, from portable models you can take camping or tailgating to larger grills designed to feed an extended family. So you'll want to review our grill buying guide if you're not sure whether you'd be happiest with a charcoal grill, gas grill, or pellet grill.Lawn Mowers and TractorsHaving the right tools makes it easier to get any job done, and that's especially true when it comes to yardwork. A good mower can make quick, easy work of unruly turf, and you may be able to find a good deal on a new machine in early fall.Prices for lawn mowers range from a hundred bucks to several thousand. Though it's not necessary to spring for the priciest model on the market, spending just a bit more than the lower end of the price spectrum will get you a higher quality machine.You'll want to research the options to find the best model for your property, whether gas or battery powered, push or ride on mowers. And beyond that, consider factors like size, power, and upkeep. Check out CR's lawn mower and tractor buying guide to learn more about your options and find a suitable mower for your home.SmartphonesIf your current smartphone isn't that current anymore and you're finally ready to get your hands on something newer, September may be a great time to find a recent model at a discount. While Black Friday in November is when you'll find the widest variety of phones on sale, the fall season kicks off with early discounts as carriers and retailers prepare for new phones.You're especially in luck if you're an Apple fan, because the brand typically unveils its new devices in September. As a result, prices on the previous year's models begin to drop this month.Not sure which phone is right for you? Our smartphone buying guide can help you find the perfect option to suit your lifestyle.PrintersFor those with a printer on your back to school shopping list, you may be able to find a good deal on a top model this month. There are plenty of options to choose from, whether you need a printer that can scan and fax or just want something basic to print occasionally.There are two main types of printers: laser and inkjet. Some may be able to make copies or offer wireless printing over WiFi. CR's buying guide can give you a more in depth look at the different options and the best models so that you'll be ready to buy when the printer you want goes on sale.Wireless RoutersA good wireless router can help boost your WiFi signal, eliminate any dead spots in your home, and ensure that everyone in the family can stream, play, and otherwise spend time online uninterrupted.

Homeowners who clean their carpets only occasionally may typically hire a professional carpet cleaner. Though nothing beats the ease and results of a professional clean, that might not be an option right now. But some of the machines we tested come pretty close for less money.You may also be able to rent a carpet cleaner, something worth looking into if you don't plan to deep clean more than a few times a year. Rental fees typically run about to per day, but these models tend to be heavy and harder to use, and they're not always in the best condition. Keep in mind that rentals might not be available in your area until social distancing requirements are relaxed.Read CR's buying guide to get a better idea of what's out there and what will be best for your needs.Replacement WindowsSeptember is a good time to invest in replacement windows. This home improvement project can help better insulate your home before the temperatures start to fall. Plus, CR has been tracking window prices for years and our data shows prices tend to dip this month.Upgrading your windows is not going to be a cheap undertaking, so you may as well take advantage of any opportunity to save on materials. Opting for just replacement windows, as long as your sills and frames are in good condition, is a good start. But if you have to replace everything, the cost will go up. Using Energy Star certified windows offers another potential way to save on your energy bills. And there may even be local or state rebates or incentives you can take advantage of as well.But before you can buy new windows, you'll want to do your research. Consult CR's buying guide, which goes over everything from choosing the right windows and materials to finding the right installer. CR has rated 14 different double hung replacement windows for wind and rain resistance.FreezersStand alone freezers tend to dip in price a few times a year, including September. But this year, we haven't seen much in the way of savings. More shoppers than usual have been buying freezers to store extra food and reduce the frequency of their shopping trips, and retailers have struggled to keep up with demand.
