TAMPA, FL -- I'm very fortunate. You, the wonderful people who keep me employed, ask some awesome questions! Over the past few weeks I've come across hundreds of excellent price drop questions.

I've been hunting bargains for almost a decade (yes, I started when I was 18) and many of the people who've been my mentors have helped me prepare this deal forecast. The following deal dates and expected drops I have are all based on insider industry information, previous price trends and simple math based on current product cycles.

Have a deal question that you don't see below? CLICK HERE and ask it in the Ways to Save Offers.com Community forum we've set up. The wonderful people at Offers.com have the best couponing software on the market and they've helped me build a great forum where you can easily submit questions and have them answered by me and other deal experts. I'm part of the forum every day and would love to hear from you. You can also submit a great deal if you find one.

Of all the deals you see below, your big questions is going to be "where do I find that??." My answer is: I'll have it right here and will put every big deal in your hands the second I see it drop.

You can also follow me on Twitter for instant notification.

TRAVEL:

Cruise deals are expected to drop significantly. Following a national mishap last year, prices dropped. Internationally, I've seen cruise packages drop by 20%.

Last-minute spring break travel deals will likely drop a day after the cruise deals drop.
