The German railpass does not change in price (there is no 'Sparpreis')

If you know when you will be travelling and your itinerary is fixed, it would probably be cheaper to buy sparpreis tickets ASAP.

Now is a good time to buy the German Rail Pass, as there's a 25% off special. To qualify, you have to travel with seat reservations whenever possible, but you get the first 2 seat reservations free (limited quantity of free reservations available). The offer is valid for travel through October 31, so it works for your time frame.
