After Christmas purchases

Do prices for new equipment generally fall after Christmas, stay the same, or return to more retail levels? I just decided to buy some kit and obviously it is a little late today.

This year we've seen every day low prices in just about everything, at least in the US. There might not be any specials right now, but the deals are still great.

Thanks Adam, I was curious about what traditionally happens (if there is such a thing). I just hope the good deals continue for a few days after Christmas when I have some time to shop.

Some things, not all, go down after Christmas. Black Friday was pretty good, so I'm not sure how much things are going to drop, but one way or another you've only got two sleeps to go before you find out!

Generally the sales will end in December as vendors are motivated to have as little inventory as possible for tax reasons. In January, prices will usually slowly bump up, but as Adam noted, the US dollar is currently strong against the Yen and the Euro, so prices are generally excellent in the US.

I'm hoping to pick up a pretty large external drive after Christmas. 4TB or so. I hope I can find a good price!

Heard on the radio that the day after Christmas might see some (general not necessarily photography related) sales as retailers try to offload what didn't sell.

I am more interested in looking at discounted, returned items!

Maybe not lower prices on gear but maybe on gift certificates with extra bonuses, like Adorama had recently?

Hi,

We have Boxing Day sales here in Australia if that is of any help.
People will be forming queues already and it is not yet 0530hrs.
The doors will not open until at least 0830 - 0900hrs!

Regards.
