This Week’s Hottest HDTV Deals
Post Father’s day HDTV promotions kicked in on Sunday. With TV sales still not up to expectations, vendors are getting more aggressive with deals, not just on the high end models but the mid-end models too with big savings on 60 and 120 Hz LCDs and LEDÃ‚Â TVs. This week we scoured Amazon Direct and found discounts as high as 37% off of the minimum advertised retail price. Deals are on select Samsung, LG, Panasonic and Toshiba models.
In our previous article (link), we wrote about Amazon’s pricing consistently lower than Best Buy and Sears. Best Buy and Sears typically give a 10% discount off of minimum retail when the TV goes on sale .
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.
