So are they waiting until everyone has spent all their money on all the other sales before they finally start thiers?
LOL exactly. Terrible strategy from UVI to wait until the last moment.

It’s 2 days to the actual Friday tbf. Gets like Easter where eggs start going on shelves on New Year’s Day.

I think (based on the many post on this subject!) most people have a list of what they want and just wait for it top go on sale, last week, this week, doesn't really matter.
PC + S49 MK2, Studio One, BWS, Live (+PUSH2), FL Studio, Renoise, Reason, X32 Desk, Hardware Synths (Summit, Hydrasynth, DM12, P8), A4 + RYTM, MPC Live, Poly Tracker, Eurorack, TD27 V Drums, Guitars, Basses, Amps and Pedals

Yes, for the ones who know exactly what product they want. Like me, there's one very specific tool that I'm sure and I'll just wait for the deal since I don't want anything else. But for those who are just willing to shop and and spoil themselves with a cool new toy, this might be a pretty bad strategy from UVI as the shopper might go try something elsewhere and get it instead. Don't know, I'm light years from being a marketing strategist but not sure if that's the best idea...

It’s complicated, generally spoken BF sales have a tendency to move forward, especially if you are a smaller dev. For the big names like UVI you can expect people to hold off if they really want something. Overall the budget problem is real though.

I agree, but I doubt that represents the majority of people.

There's so much stuff to get and so many surprises, I imagine the majority are improvising until the cash runs out.

That's not how it works. BF is a artificially created date that someone made up to drive sales. The problem is that on that date you are only one fish in the tank of a million and people might already have blown their budget. That's why we are seeing this beeing moved forward, first to black week, now to black month. It's just a logical conclusion at this point.

You can hold out till BF, but you risk that people already bought stuff from Arturia and other developers and simply don't need your stuff anymore.

"need"? You mean people only buy plugins they need? Who are these people and how can I develop their steely self-control?

Well it's not that artificial if you live in the US.
That's the day off between Thanksgiving and the week-end.
I tend to want to keep tradition but that's my opinion.

And why would you have a big sale EXACTLY on that day. That's about as natural as Santa Claus, sure at this point it's tradition, but it was made up artificially by a coporation to sell more products.

Maybe some companies only care about $ over everything else, but other companies might be more interested in playing the long game of trying to attract long term customers, especially if like UVI, they have lots of libraries they can try to sell as well. If UVI follow the increasing trend of constant sales, they may generate more revenue in the short term by preying on people's GAS, but lose in the long term by not being able to up and or repeat sell to loyal customers who are genuinely interested and invested in their products/ecosystems.
Always Read the Manual!
