    When Are Most New Bosch Refrigerators Released?

    Over the last 3 years we couldn't see any noticeable pattern in the release month for new Bosch refrigerators.

    In March 2018, 12 new Bosch refrigerators were released making it the biggest month that year for new Bosch fridge releases. September was the biggest month in 2017 for new Bosch refrigerators, with three new Bosch refrigerators released that month. 11 new Bosch fridges were released in July 2016 making it the biggest month that year for new Bosch fridge releases.

    .

    How Fast Do Bosch Fridge Prices Drop After Release?

    Bosch refrigerators tend to depreciate faster than most refrigerators.

    Most refrigerators drop in price by 7% in the first 6 months after release. In the first 6 months after release, Bosch refrigerators drop in price by 8% on average. That means that on a typical Bosch refrigerator costing $510 you could save on average $41 by waiting 6 months before buying.
