    Dubai's Duty Free stores celebrate their anniversary on Dec 21 and have been marking their anniversary with discounts equal to the anniversary year (so in 2010, they offered a 25% anniversary to mark the 25th anniversary of duty free stores). It was a pleasant surprise the first time I passed through and discovered watches, jewelry, cosmetics, CDs etc at significant discounts. If you're checking on dates for travel through DXB, Dec 21 is well worth considering.

    It's also a good time to chat with EK folks - just after midnight is a very popular time to be around duty free.
  2. Its a very good time.
    I bought my first Rolex on that day in 2008 it was 23% the already sale price.

    I tell everyone about it. Travel to DXB Duty Free on the 21st! Its 26% off this year.
