This time of year, one hears about deep discounts for pre-holiday shopping - particularly Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Do online component sellers like NewEgg typically deepen discounts between Thanksgiving and Christmas?

thanks for any advice

As an avid Newegg fan, I've always been disappointed by their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. Yes, there are sales, but generally not on components that I would consider purchasing. I mean, you're not going to see a Core I5-2500K for $150 or anything like that.

Thanks for the responses.

I've been watching prices between NewEgg and other online retailers over the past week. I suppose it should come as no surprise, but Amazon frequently manages to be very competitive on quality-name computer components. It should be interesting to see what happens with new players in the game over the holiday sales period. I will remain hopeful, but keep my expectations in check.
