Stock Up On Winter Storm Gear During These Great Black Friday Sales
With freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall in the forecast, there is no better time to purchase a new snow blower, space heater, or generator that will power you through the winter storm season.
Earlier this fall, we shared winter forecast predictions on Bob Vila that included heavy snowfall. Then just before Thanksgiving, parts of Buffalo, NY, have been buried under 4 to 6 feet of snow! So as Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales abound, there’s no better time to take stock of how prepared your household is for the cold season—and take advantage of retailers’ discounts on winter storm gear.
Generators, shovels, snow blowers, space heaters, and even water leak detectors and pipe insulation might be among the smartest Black Friday purchases you can make. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the sales we’ve seen so far on our favorite winter products.
Best Snow Blower Deals
The Bob Vila team has cleared upstate New York snow with dozens of battery-, electric-, and gas-powered snow blowers in the past year. Not only are many of our recommendations still in stock right now (which wasn’t always a guarantee last winter), but we are pleasantly surprised to see some models on sale at The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, and Amazon for Black Friday. Bottom line: Snag what you need before the deals—and inventory—is gone.
