Don’t get tricked into buying expensive treats.
Everyone knows the day after Halloween is the best day to buy candy, because all the stores have epic sales to clear shelves for Christmas decorations — but where can you score the best candy deals for the big night?
We scoured the web to see which major retailers offer the best prices on candies that are perfect for dealing out to trick-or-treaters, or just having around the house for decorations (or snacking — tis the season). Here are your best bets:
MARS Chocolate Favorites Halloween Candy Bars Variety Mix, 135-piece bag
Skittles and Starburst Original Halloween Candy Bag, 65 fun size pieces
Nestle Halloween Candy Assorted Sugar Mix-Ups, 200 pieces
The tricks: If you’re an Amazon Prime member, take advantage of your two-day shipping. Make sure you’re ordering from the actual candy retailer not a third-party seller, which could be dangerous because it’s not packaged to the company’s same standards.

Not only do they have under-the-radar deals on adorable Halloween decorations you didn’t know you needed, but your local Target may also have some cheap candy in there, too.

Trolli Halloween Mix, 100 count
Hershey Halloween Variety Pack, 315 count
The tricks: Pay attention to the piece-count! While these variety bags cost around the same as others on the market, they’re pretty varied in terms of how many candies you’re getting. Leave no trick-or-treater behind, and make sure you’re getting as many candies as possible.
MARS Chocolate Favorite Minis, 240 count
