Big Screen TV Deals To Be Plentiful This Christmas
I think it may finally be time for me to trash my beloved 17-inch Philco Predicta black and white and go for the gold–a big screen television. According to a report from Reuters news agency retailers are going to go all out and offer large discounts on big screen TV’s, something most did not do last year.The sales may be starting early too.
“It is starting even earlier than usual. You are seeing sharp promotions. You are seeing Wal-Mart out there with a TV this weekend and Amazon.com with special deals. It is upping the overall intensity,” analyst Colin McGranahan said.
“It is going to be a dogfight. Everyone’s going to be fighting because demand is not great,” McGranahan said.
Apparently one of the reasons is that advancing technology has made manufacture of these TV’s cheaper and the retailers are, as they say, “passing the savings along to you”.
