Discount & Clearance seasons

edited May 2011 in Collecting
Until last year I was living in a country where LEGO was hard to find and expensive. Now I am in Netherlands and can shop online or directly from the stores very easily. My question is, are the discount periods the same very year? Also what is the good way to follow these? Many news I find on the net are US or UK based, which do not always coincide with EU.

Another question, does every theme go into discount when their time is over? Currently 2010 Atlantis sets are on discount in a local shop, I'm gonna get them, but if this is true for all themes then I will stop buying newly released sets right away.

    Some popular themes never go on discount, they just run out - these are usually the better sets in the range or more sought after ranges.

    yep, trying to figure out when sets will be discontinued and if they will go on sale or anything like that is about on par with trying to figure women out. Either way you would be a rich man if you could do it!

    ^-- at lego stores it is best to just wait for free shipping or double point weeks at the brick and mortar stores....
    Otherwise like SI_Dorking_Surrey_UK states some sets just run out...I would say it takes about 2 years for a line to run out, BUT there have been lines that have disproved that.. So you can roll the dice and try to find a BOGO deal on TRU or another site, or get them from Amazon for retail (when they have them, if you can get free shipping and no sales tax (if in the states) I am goin to attempt this.. it will hurt a bit if I miss a set, but I really need to lay off the legos (especially after this SW sale) for a while

    thanks for the replies. after posting this I actually spent a good amount of time in german websites -which also improved my basic german skills :)- and got a little idea about what to do next. apparently, most of the good discounts are in US, but I'm now on watch for european discounts.
