Yea..yea...it just came out, but looking for people to take a best guess on when pricing might drop around $50 on the Apple Watch Series 4. I think there were some Black Friday price drops on the Series 3 last year.

Maybe black Friday, but if it does apply, it likely just would be with aluminum model and not the stainless.

There weren't any price drops on series 3 last year. Definitely not $50 less. I know. I looked all over since I was going to buy one. Was even looking at the discontinued series 2 back then but the only thing that was on sale around Black Friday was series 1.

I think probably it will be the same in that series 3 will see a drop but not series 4

Right now. BestBuy open-box returns.

You Address an interesting point, for anyone considering A ‘Best Buy open box Apple Watch’, make sure you power it on [in the store], check to see that the accessories are included, Best Buy has a horrible reputation for being known not to check their products for open box items, even though they do have a return/warranty, there have been some poor experiences with other members buying Apple Watch open box items with the watch not functioning or missing items.

Yes. You can have a bases-loaded home run with these, or foul out.

Exactly, and with ship dates into mid-November and the demand so high, there’s no way that’s going to happen.
