The prices now are generally better than the fall sale season. They know people are gearing up then. So they offer a discount but they know it doesn't have to be as deep to move stuff. I compared a few items 3-4 years ago and found them 5-15% more expensive in the Fall sale versus the previous Spring sale. Mostly because I had photos on my phone of the prices from the spring.
So if you want it and have the $ it may not be a bad choice to buy.
