Has anyone else noticed the lack of Christmas discounts this year compared to last year. eBay has several 20% off sales last year and I think I even caught one 30% sale from summit through their eBay stores. I did grab a set of Speedmaster small block Mopar heads during their Black Friday 40% off sale. Each Head was 219.00 with free shipping

No 'sales' on items must mean business is good. If biz was bad, there would likely be more items being discounted.

I have noticed it in a number of industries that I have some dealings with. Even a lack of deals for Black Friday compared to years past. And prices going up in some cases.

Places have flash sales, weekend deals, etc. to keep cash flow up. I guess they are doing OK. They watch the numbers and respond accordingly.


If the results don't match the theory, change the theory.

i've been holding off on some purchases in hopes of discounts like last year, but so far, none have materialized.

Its what happens when the economy is rolling. The next challenge will be staving off inflation.

Yes, that's because the economy is on fire. I never seen it so good, I have made thousands in the stock market just since August, enough to buy a brand new car. It's crazy, but I like it. Hope it stays. Dont expect many discounts when people have money and are spending it.

Most of the deals I got were 10% off.
My best deal was 100 off of a glass hood from racers edge for my big tire s10 bracket truck. I got 20% off on a bare set of promaxx bbc heads.
Hopefully once I get the S10 done next month, I can start working on the challenger again. yellow It will be more of a fast bracket/ local king of the hill type car now. cool

I always used to put a sticky on the top of the page here for holiday discounts from vendors here on Moparts. Perhaps I will do it again.

I am not in quite agreement on the calculus that lack of offered sales equates with booming profits. Actually i have often seen an increase in prices as a last gasp effort to stay afloat, the result usually just hastens the opposite outcome..

I however do not think we are in a situation where many companies are just treading water.

A related observation, I made a 2500 mile road trip out of the recent PRI show.

In my entire life, and I have driven Sem's for almost 4 decades, have I ever seen so many trucks on the road, in rest stops, and at all hours of day/week. It was startling.

Not sure if anyone is making money, but there sure is a lot of product moving. eek

A week before Christmas and I see even Summit is not offering their usual 10% off this year. Plus now they automatically take out the PA sales tax of 6%.

I drive a truck locally for a living. The wages are either stagnant or dropping. I see alot of trucking outfits going out of business and I believe it is the undercutting and paying new drivers sh!t wages to drive those trucks. Be careful out there, many brand new drivers behind the wheel of those 80000# vehicles. I think many skipped the training part.
