Our readers prefer to start holiday shopping on Black Friday or sooner

Our readers apparently like to get the early jump on holiday shopping.

What you need to know

  • Nearly half the votes indicate that a good majority start their holiday shopping on Black Friday.
  • Others indicate that they start even sooner, once November arrives.
  • Many users have already started and finished their shopping.

The holiday season is nearly upon us, which means we'll be on the lookout for some great Black Friday sales. However, with so many great deals happening throughout the year, there have been many opportunities to start shopping early, So we wanted to know when you usually start your holiday shopping.

Nearly 50% of the responses indicate that readers start their shopping once Black Friday and Cyber Monday hit, two of the biggest shopping events of the season with heavy discounts of all sorts. However, nearly 1/3 of the responses show that many of our readers prefer to get their shopping started even sooner, once November hits and Halloween is over.

From the comments on the poll and on Twitter, it seems our readers like to start their shopping done even sooner than that, buying items throughout the year or in the months leading up to November and December. It makes sense when some popular items are hard to find, like the PS5, which consumers are still trying to get their hands on. However, starting sooner would also give consumers a chance to stock up on the best PS5 games and accessories to complete the package.

That said, you should keep an eye out on our PS5 tracker to let you know when the console is expected to be in stock.

Of course, Black Friday is a month away, but we'll be looking out for great offers on tech, such as the best Black Friday deals for Samsung Galaxy phones and more. That way, you'll be sure not to miss out on any great offers while supplies last.

Samsung Galaxy S21 5G

From $250 at Samsung

If you want a great Samsung smartphone without breaking the bank, look no further than the Galaxy S21. With its 6.2-inch display, it's small enough to fit comfortably in most people's hands, and it offers many of the best features found in the more premium Galaxy S21 Ultra. You can find some pretty good deals on Samsung's website if you're willing to trade in.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
