Giant Xmas Sales?

Postby Cadel » Mon Oct 22, 2012 8:50 pm

Hi,

I'm considering buying a Giant road bike and just wondering if it's worth the wait until Xmas, do they usually have any discounts around that time and what they might be: 10-20% off?
I looked at last year's models but they're all pretty much sold out.
thanks

That's the crux of it. The bicycle industry (incl. Giant Bicycles) has a penchance for releasing many of the next year's models well before the end of the calendar year and often in the first quarter of any given finacial year.

Christmas to me is not the time to be hanging out for a genuine new bicycle purchase discount. I'd be looking hard(er) right now for a bargain........
3rd class cycling is always better than 1st class walking

Typically the 20% off 'Factory Backed Sale' is February.

Some shops will give 10% if pushed on a 2013 model.
