When Are Most New Bosch Freezers Released?

Most new Bosch freezers tend to be released between January and March. If you want the latest Bosch freezer technology you may be best waiting until January 2019.

January was the biggest month last year for new Bosch freezers, with four new Bosch freezers released that month. Also the biggest month in 2016 for new Bosch freezer releases was January, with five new Bosch freezers released that month. Four new Bosch freezers were released in March 2015 making it the biggest month that year for new Bosch freezer releases.

How Fast Do Bosch Freezer Prices Drop After Release?

Bosch freezers tend to depreciate faster than most freezers. Most freezers drop in price by 1% in the first 6 months after release. On average, in the first 6 months after release, Bosch freezers drop in price by 4%. That means that on a typical Bosch freezer costing £474 you could save on average £17 by waiting 6 months before buying.
