So here is the question. Fiance and I are looking for our wedding bands this weekend. His should be easy since i think he already knows what he wants. We’re hoping to get cheaper bands right now and then maybe upgrade mine down the line.
So when are the deals best? BEFORE or AFTER Christmas?
I have a feeling the deals are good before christmas, but then shops want to get rid of extra inventory for the new year so waiting until after Christmas would be better.
What do ya think?

There are some good deals before Christmas, but from my experience Jan sales have always been cheaper.

I know the week after christmas is good for cars, so maybe jewelry as well?

Well, I got my wedding band on Black Friday for $342 instead of $1200 at Kohl’s thanks to 60% off for black friday + 20% off for expensive case jewelery + 20% off coupon + $10 Kohl’s cash…….. and we got $90 Kohl’s cash back, which Fiance let me use to buy clothing LOL. So, I’m going with you probably should’ve started looking last Friday!

I think a LOT of people get engaged during the holidays so even if they advertise deals heavily they may not be the best. FI bought my ring in October and haven’t seen it any lower than that price since. But we knew what ring we wanted so we monitored it for a few months before buying.
I never thought of waiting until the new year, for clearance deals but that sounds like a good idea to me! We need someone that’s worked at a jewelry store in this thread to know more….

In my opinion they do not discount much before the holidays because people will buy it anyways. I know in the electronic industry, they mark up prices weeks before the sale, than discount it to maybe 5% lower than the original price.
