The Best Time of Year to Buy a New TV? Super Bowl Week!

If you’ve been thinking about buying a new TV, now is the time to do it! According to industry experts, Super Bowl week is the best time of the year to purchase a new television.

There are two reasons now is the time to buy. First, the Consumer Electronics Show just ended and slick new television models are set to hit the floors of Best Buy, hhgregg, and other major retailers. This means stores are anxious to get rid of older models, so they’ve slashed prices accordingly. Second, many people want a high-quality television to watch the big game and are in the market for a new set. Retailers naturally want this extra business and the result is a plethora of amazing deals, both online and off.

According to Tech Goes Strong’s Stewart Wolpin, a new 42-inch plasma set can be yours for less than $500, while 50 and even 60-inch models can be had for under a grand. You may have to hunt for awhile, but TV bargains are definitely out there. If you’re going to take the plunge and buy a new set, here are 5 tips from CNET’s Geoffrey Morrison.
