We are half way through October and it is almost that time of year again… Television buying season! According to consumerreports.org, the next 3 months are the primetime for purchasing a television. There is nothing quite like having a big, brand new TV on which to enjoy the game on Turkey Day. But with all the major retailers competing for your business, it can be hard to tell which deal is really best. So how do you find a great deal on a television without losing your mind? Don’t stress, we are here to help.
Some brands have already started discounting their products. Panasonic, in particular, has cut prices on many of their television. You can find especially big savings on their HDTVs, which they need to get rid of in order to make room for the coming year’s stock of smart TVs. Don’t miss out on your chance to score a killer deal, like this Viera 50” AS530 Series Smart LED LCD TV for under $600!
Buying a television on Black Friday is pretty much the world’s worst kept secret. Unruly crowds at the store, at ungodly hours in the morning, and you are in a bad mood before the day has even started. If you do decide to brave the chaos of a Black Friday sale, be sure you do your research. Many retailers will be opening their doors and starting their sales on Thanksgiving instead of on Black Friday. Walmart and Sear’s will be starting their sales at 6 pm that Thursday. If you are able to take advantage of this Thanksgiving Day event, there is a good chance you will not be fighting the same kind of crowds that you will the following morning. Still, expect to spend your whole evening at the store.
We will have more deals and tips about Black Friday as the weeks roll on, so make sure you check back regularly so you don’t miss out!
