Friends, if you are shopping for a new TV, camera or a laptop computer during the holiday shopping season there are some things to be aware of. In some cases, items that are being featured for the morning door buster sales may be lacking in features. If you have been doing your homework on certain brands and models you will already know what features you are interested in.

Oftentimes, stores will get in merchandise specifically for the morning sale. As a rule, these items are not included in their regular inventory. These items are known as derivatives. Derivatives are less expensive models that may carry the major brand name that you have come to trust. They are produced by the manufacturers that you have come to trust but generally have lower specs and less features than the standard models.

The holiday shopping season is when these items are prevalent. The stores are able to buy a limited quantity of these items. Once they are gone, they are gone. Retailers bring them in to pull customers into the store under the guise that they are getting a great deal. The customer sees the name of a well known manufacturer and assumes the item is worth buying.

If you’re considering purchasing one of these morning special electronics, check the manufacturer’s warranty, and see if it differs from the standard warranty on like items in the regular inventory. Also, check the retailer’s return policy because it is possible that it might be different on a promotional model. If you are not satisfied with the quality, you want to make sure you can return it for another model. For now, happy shopping!
