Default Best time of the year to buy a press?

Looking at getting into reloading and have settled on a Hornady LNL AP.

My question to everyone is what is the best time of the year to buy a press? Are there many online specials going into black friday or does that not apply to this type of equipment?

I know about the Hornady free bullets if purchased by the end of the year but based upon your experience is there any time better than another?

You might be able to get one during a black Friday sale, but the question is; if you buy one know and start reloading how much have you saved from know until the black Friday sale in Dec. After it is all said it done, buying one now will result in a bigger savings or at least more shooting time than waiting until Dec to save 20-30 bucks.

I think the best day would probably be July 19th.
