The Best Time to Buy an HDTV

submitted on February 4, 2010 by bigger915 in "Products / Gadgets"
Do you already have your HDTV in time for the Super Bowl?!?!

Forget what you've heard: The weeks leading up to the Super Bowl are not always the best time to buy a big-screen TV. True, retailers have splashy sales to entice you to splurge on a plasma or LCD model, but savvy shoppers wait until March or April to score the best deals.

Simply put, the laws of supply and demand are working against you. "If you're a retailer, you should not have your best deals in January and February, when people want TVs the most," says Daniel de Grandpre, chief executive of, a bargain-hunting site. Look for a dip in prices in early spring, says de Grandpre, when manufacturers close out older models to make room for new sets they launched at the Consumer Electronics Show, in January.

    A lot of retailers put them on sale right around tax time too to lure people into buying them. I've noticed that just after April 15th a lot more electronics go on sale for better prices.
