What kind of drops should I expect in sales?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

 

I would like to know, as black Friday is soonish, and January is not too far. How are the price drops due to sales on PC Parts.

 

Mainly CPU's, Motherboards and RAM but the other parts too.

 

I know that no one knows now, but if anyone had an experience from last Jan and last black Friday that would be much appreciated.

 

I want to know what parts to look out for so that I can buy them then and get them cheaper.

 

Thanks guys

Considering the on going pandemic, this years black friday is most likely going to be very different to the ones in the past years so chances are trying to use older black friday's for comparisons will give you an extremely innacurate view. Ideally make a list with things you want to buy, and alternatives to them if they aren't available, or they aren't reduced in price and go from there.

Given what COVID and its chain reaction of events has done to the market along with various hardware launches, who knows.

Probably not a good idea to hedge bets based on last year's data.

I live in the UK so there aren't as many retailers as there are in the US. I most probably will use Amazon, I have prime and they tend to be the cheapest.

My conspiracy theory is that vendors gradually, slowly increase prices over the previous month or two so nobody notices. Then, on Black Friday, they lower the prices to the previous levels and, ta da! We have a sale! I seriously never saw anything on Black Friday worth buying.

Isn't it also typically the worst time of the year to buy electronics?

I don't know it's THE worst time, but probably not the best.

No, I don't remember seeing that. I built a PC during my Christmas break last year. I got the best deals later in December. Micro Center in particular. They had mobo+CPU combos on top of already discounted 9900K.
