The Best Times Of Year To Buy Cars And Computers, From Trae Bodge (VIDEO)

When it comes to making big purchases, like a new car or computer, senior lifestyle editor of Trae Bodge says that timing matters. Trae recommends purchasing a new car in August, right before the newer car models get released, which means you'll get the best price on their current model. If you're looking to purchase a new laptop, your best bet is to look in August during back to school season, or in April, right before new computer models get released, and during Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals during the holiday season.
