When to get a deal on a trainer?

I am looking to upgrade from my mag trainer to a fluid trainer, and I was wondering when is the best time to get a deal. In particular, I have been looking at a Kurt Kinetic Road Machine or CycleOps Fluid. Initially, I thought they would get cheaper as spring approached, but the prices seem to only have gone up since I started watching in late January (both on eBay and at online stores). Anyone know if the price on these is likely to go down again as summer approaches? (Or know of any particularly good deals?)

Put an add on your local craigslist site. You can get some pretty good deals there. I got a nice set off rollers for $50.00, and then good have bought three others the same day for the same price.

Nevermind. Today was a good day. I managed to pick up a new 2009 Kurt Kinetic Road Machine for $216 shipped on eBay. :-)
