Default pricing for 60D

A few months back I was price checking for the Canon 60D. The best prices that I could find for the body alone (Amazon and B&H) was around $865 USD. I decided that I would wait until "Black Friday" or "Cyber Monday". Well, this past week I looked at the same sites and the prices jumped UP to $899. Did I miss out back in August by not purchasing, or is this possibly a sales ploy to later on dropping the price back down to $865 to make it look like a deal? I know nobody has a crystal ball, but do you think that the prices will drop again?

Canon is enforcing MAP pricing now - retailers must advertise specific prices.

I realize that now. So, in the last few weeks the price has remained steady at $899.00 USD, with some retailers stating $999 with an instant rebate or knock-off of $100. Then, a few days ago I checked Amazon and they are selling it (they state "brand new") for $799 with free shipping to boot. I hope this is true. Thanks to everyone who responded.
