Well, what can I say? After a very strong January through March, the steam was bound to run low, and it certainly did in April. Red across the board, but it's honestly not that unusual. With spring and the post-holidays lull we've seen this repeatedly.
@CVP33 took top deal poster for the third month in a row! He's now the second-most consecutive holder of the top position, behind none other than @TheJohnP with like a bazillion months at the top. Only 9 spots out of 10 for Top Ten Members. Come on you lurkers, I know you're out there! Just posting one deal would have gotten your name on the list!
Special shout-out to @TRANCE1, a new member who got on the board with three deals. Thank you!
Let's see what May brings, hopefully, a return to being in the black!
On to the numbers!
(As always, if there is a particular brand, site or other pieces of data you'd like, let me know and I can provide it.)
Let's remember a few things first:
- I based these calculations on new and refurbished watches only.
- I do not include watch accessories or used/open box watches.
- I only included deals with links.
- The retail price used was either the retail price listed on the selling website or found on the manufacturer's site.
- Currency, if not in USD was converted to USD using Google's currency exchange calculator as close to the date the deal was posted as possible.
- "Largest" and "Smallest" deal is based solely on the percentage savings from listed retail. I do not make subjective determinations on the brand's perceived value. That is up to you, the reader.
