Lack of good EOS R deals for Black Friday

Back in December 2019 there were great Black Friday deals on the the Canon EOS R that was a little over a year old at the time. The two deals that were offered were

- body only for$1199 .00

- body and RF 24-105mm f/4L IS = $2,199.00

I believe both came with an included EF to EOS R adapter included but I know the version with the lens definitely did since that is the one I bought.

Why are current Black Friday prices for this kit at least $400 more two years later?
The reason I ask is I moved on from my EOS R at this point and sold it when I bought my  R5 but wouldn't mind buying an EOS R to use as a backup.  Yes an R6 would be nice but that is more than $1000 more.

Was Canon so desperate back then that they have no need to match it with a camera that is now more than three years old?
