They seem to be issuing these discounts in sync with calendar quarters. My surmise is they are trying to pump up their gross sales numbers for their financial reports. But I have no idea what their Fiscal Year actually is. Just notice that the discount offers seemingly come every 2-3mos.
I didn't get anything this time, but I definitely have in the past.
If I dont NEED something right away, lately I've put off the purchase until eBay or Amazon do their sales. Both seem to be pretty frequent lately.
I do get a little greedy sometimes when they do a 10 % or 15%, and think to myself, hold off a bit longer and they'll do a 20% or 25%.
I totally scored all of the stuff I needed to finish up my air suspension and saved about $90 in the process.
Now I will wait on the next discount session so I can scoop up a bunch of Nissan Leaf battery modules for my house battery in my van.
They have these discounts so often I hardly pay full price for anything anymore on ebay.
They do some for holidays sometimes as well.
I don't notice too many sales on Amazon but I did get a deal on a cheap plasma cutter that I left in my cart for a few days.
When I put it in there it was like $485 and I stalled on actually buying it.
Then magically the price dropped to $320 so I bought it.
I have not seen it at that price again.
As for those that missed the discount, they stated that it ended at 7pm west cost time.
I do the same with my Amazon Wish List. I just put my wants in there and wait for them to geek with a 7-10-24% discount and buy it. And when I'm not paying or prime I always stacked small stuff to meet the 'cover charge' for free shipping.
