Hottest Father’s Day HDTV Deals
In March, ABI Research surveyed 2024 Americans asking: Which electronics products they intend to purchase in the next six months?Ã‚Â HDTV came in first place with a whopping 24% intending to buy, followed by a Blu-ray player at 17%.
A number of factors make this week the ideal time to purchase a new HDTV. Sales of sets in the first four months of the year were slow, resulting in built up inventories. Set makers are offering dealers big incentives to drop prices now. Next Sunday is Fathers Day, the last big TV promotional period until the Fall selling season.
We scoured this week’s Best Buy weekly circular picking out the hottest HDTV deals. We compared the Best Buy (BB) circular prices with deals on Amazon, and found greater savings at Amazon on manyÃ‚Â models. Below we list the BB sale price and AmazonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s better deals alongside with a link.
In addition to deeper discounts, all listed Amazon HDTVs include free shipping. Amazon also offers a low price guarantee on all TVs sold directly by them. Ã‚Â Note: prices are correct as of posting and may change at any time, please verify with our links;Ã‚Â Most states do not collect sales tax on Amazon orders [with the exceptions ofÃ‚Â CO, KS, KY, NY, ND & WA]. You always must pay sales tax when buying at any brick and mortar store. Should you buy an HDTV from on-line or from a retail store?Ã‚Â Learn all the pros and cons in our article here. (BB=Best Buy).
(Please Note- Best Buy sell some models known as derivatives. These are virtually the same as the main line model and are offered by Best Buy and select retailers to avoid price matches. We list the equivalent model and number below when applicable. )
