2018 Will Bring Some Exciting Price Drops

Expect surprise savings in 2018, such as 4k TV's, organic groceries, Apple ipads, and used cars.

Apple reportedly planning to release even cheaper 9.7-inch iPad in 2018
In March this year, Apple introduced a $329 9.7-inch iPad for the first time. Digitimes reports today that the company could go even lower next year, with Apple apparently planning a new 9.7-inch iPad in the $259 price range.

4K TV's
As 4K TV's are replacing their 1080 counterparts, everyone can enjoy the cinema experience at home without breaking the bank. Apple's recent announcement that it would be selling 4K videos for the same price as HD — and would upgrade old HD purchases to 4K — has already caused Amazon to cut prices on its 4K content.

Used Cars
As leased cars are gaining popularity due to the cheap rates, used cars prices are getting slashed as a result. The average used car lost 17 percent of its value in the past 12 months, dropping from $18,400 to $15,300, according to data from Black Book, an auto analytics company. That annual depreciation figure has been increasing steadily, too. The average used car today depreciates nearly twice as fast at it did in 2014, when the annual rate was just 9.5 percent.

Organic Groceries

2018 may be the time to finally go organic! Overall, grocery prices are expected to rise by a percent or two in 2018, but Amazon's recent acquisition of Whole Foods has led to lower prices on the organic end. And beyond Whole Foods, Nielsen has already seen a fall in organic food prices.pexels-photo-221534
