No need to wait ’til Black Friday for that TV

One of the splurge items on your list this year a new flat-screen TV? You don’t have to wait until Friday—deals are popping up this week, already. Take this LG 47″ 1080p LCD TV at, for example; it’s just $700 shipped, today, after price reduction and instant rebate. That’s crazy.

Amazon’s price on the same set is about $100 more (depending on which seller you choose), but do click through to read the (glowing) reviews if you need more information.

We finally got a flat screen last year and all I can say is that I’ve been irrevocably spoiled for ever watching a movie on a dinky little low-def TV ever again. This may not be a good thing, but I do not care.


  1. We’ve been pricing tv’s and this is an awesome deal! For a 47″, 1080p, 120hz, I’m about to jump on it… but I’d really prefer to talk to my husband first! $700 is about $150 more than we’ve been seeing for the 37 or 42 inch 70hz tvs. 5 more inches and 120 hz is well worth the $150 extra in my opinion.

  2. It was such a hard decision! I just placed the order, so good or bad, here we go.

  3. My husband claims the “experts” rated it “eh” (his words). Took him all of about 10 seconds to tell me it was no good.
    I personally think he just will never allow me to be the one to find our electronics, because I can’t possible do as good as him.

  4. I just looked over the Consumer Reports 2011 Buying Guide, and other LG HDTVs in this size category all had excellent scores. We jumped. Plus shopped through to get free swagbucks, and put it on our card to get Amazon points, too. Thanks for the great lead; we’ve been hunting for a new TV this season!
