What to buy in June | Consumer Reports

June is here! Whether it’s a gift for dad, a recent “grad,” or just something nice for yourself, these deals on top-tested products could help you kickstart your summer just right.

With Father’s Day and graduation season almost here, June is a great month to save big on the items that’ll help you celebrate the ones you love.

Here are the top products to look out for in Consumer Reports’ “Best Time to Buy.”

“St the beginning of June, you might still see ongoing memorial day sales on things like dishwashers, blenders, and mattresses, and with Father’s Day coming up on June 18, start looking for discounts on things like tech items and power tools,” Samantha Gordon with CR said.

If Dad is a DIY-er, get him something he can use for jobs big and small.

The drill from Dewalt is as low as $105.70 at Amazon. CR said this cordless drill is very powerful and capable of driving even the largest screws.

And for new dads who still want to work out – what about a jogging stroller? The Thule Urban Glide 2 is as low as $549.95 at Nordstrom and Pottery Barn Kids. CR said this jogging stroller is easily maneuverable and features a hand brake for better control when jogging.

Need a gift for a recent graduate who loves tech? Why not get them a new smartwatch?

The Apple Watch SE is as low as $149 at Walmart. CR said the first generation Apple watch did great in its tests. If you’re OK with foregoing the latest and greatest features on newer models, you can enjoy these big savings.

Finally, an item that will satisfy all inside the kitchen. The Vitamix one is as low as $149.95 at Wayfair.

CR says this blender aced its tests in making smoothies and frozen desserts.
