But experts warn to be very cautious on just what items you break out that new plastic to purchase. As the saying goes, if it seems too good to be true, it probably isn't true. Or in a shopping sense, it may be a leftover deal.

Big box retailers are pulling out all the stops to entice holiday shoppers this Thanksgiving Day and the day after, but many deals being packaged as something shiny and new may actually be year-old deals with a 2015 bow on top, according to a new study, USA Today reported.

“This is the fourth year we’ve conducted this analysis, and we’re still seeing repetitive deals every year,” says NerdWallet shopping manager Katrina Chan. “Just because a retailer promotes a certain product as a ‘deal,’ consumers shouldn’t take that at face value. Shoppers still have to do their homework early.”
