Why This Week is the Best Time for HDTV Deals
UPDATED 12/11 – More Deals Added
The TV makers have key weeks to provide additional incentives for dealers to sell more sets. Starting tomorrow December 11th and through the 18th is the last big TV selling week of the year. To maximize sales, manufacturers and dealers make the final push for the holiday.
HD Guru took a sneak peek at tomorrow’s newspaper ads and circulars to give our readers a head start on the sets that are going to be on sale. Not only did we find outstanding advertised deals on top brand HDTVs 42-Inches and up, we discovered the buys on Amazon were even better. (They check prices too.)
We will be monitoring promotions all week and report new incentive driven bargains as kick in.
According to the Associated Press, HDTV are selling faster than expected. They may be the top seller in the electronics category, outselling tablets. Supplies are starting to run low on the hottest models, so there is no sense in waiting any longer if you want the best selection at the deepest discount for the holiday.
The deals begin after the jump.
