“Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” like it or not they are part of Christmas Shopping culture. I have always been skeptical about these”deals”, I often see a lot of bait and switching or offering low quality items for what looks like a great savings. Last year I put my suspicions to the test and concluded that while I was right in most cases, if you looked hard enough you could find some really terrific bargains.
As the start of the Christmas shopping season draw near I will try to share with you some of the deals that I think offer the best value. There from “Best Buy“are three to get things started:
- $7.99 Blu Rays – Renting an HD movie cost about 6 bucks these days, for two dollars more you could own one. These are fantastic stocking stuffers or you could bundle 3 or 4 as a present. As a huge movie fan I can tell you that you can’t go wrong with baby blu.
- iPad 2 for $299.99 – The new iPad cost $499.00, that has the older generation up for sale. The iPad 2 is still a great tablet and for 200 bucks less it’s a steal.
- Samsung 65 Inch LED TV $999.00 - I price checked this television on Amazon, it sells for about $1400 and has excellent reviews. To get a TV this big and from such a reputable brand for this price is fantastic. If you are looking for that Wow factor, then this is probably the gift for you.
Now please kept in mind this is a preview, these items won’t go on sale until “Black Friday”. Best buy will be giving out tickets for this event, you will have to wait on line and I am guessing that the line will be long. For those of you who dislike such inconveniences, don’t fret cyber monday is right around the corner.
