Where and when is the best time to buy a new riding mower. Also, where can I find the best deal? Tia

Should be coming up soon. I personally just buy Craftsman. Old one is 10 years and still going. I don't have a huge yard though so it is probably ok. If you have a much larger yard I could possibly see spending the cash for a non base model Deere or something but I have been happy with my Craftsman .

my yard is just a little under an acre. what price should I expect to pay for a mower on a big discount? keep in mind I live in Florida, so deal may be harder to come by. tia

I mow about 2/3 of an acre. I picked up a $1,650 mower off Sears delivered and put together (there are a few things you usually have to do but no biggie) for $750 IIRC. Saw the deal on here actually. I would think you should hopefully be able to get a decent one for about a grand to do your basic mowing. You can also check your Sears Outlet stores in the area as they may have something available. This is all YMMV as they may not go on sale but the two I've bought were around the $800 mark. Good luck!

Best time of year will be soon as, the stores will be wanting to move what stock they have left to make way for snowblowers etc
The other thing is go your your big box stores and ask the manager, not the floor staff, whats the best price you can do for me, the managers know they make 30% so to drop 15%+ doesnt worry them as they want the things gone, also look for returns they are a good deal also, check the hours of use (little indicator on the dashboard), then look underneath it to make sure its hasnt been used to mow a field of rocks, these returns go for below cost as again the stores want to move them
So check out all the box stores sears etc, as after fall is done so are your chances at a deal
