Here in Canada, December 26th is a big day. You see December 26th is known as "Boxing Day" in Canada. This is a day that shoppers go out in search of super deals and bargains from retailers. According to Visa Canada Boxing Day shoppers will curb their spending this year. The credit card company says shoppers plan to spend 29 per cent less today compared to last year's Boxing Day. A move that could cost Canadian retailers more than 1 billion, on what is traditionally one of the busiest retail days of the year. Online shopping for boxing day sales usually begins on December 24th with many retailers such as Future Shop putting items on sale a day or so earlier to entice online purchases.
Boxing Day sales have recently turned into Boxing Week sales when many retail stores sell their Christmas stock and retired model products with clearance-like sales. Some times the savings are just too good to pass up and you will see people line up in the middle of the night, just to ensure they get the "steals of the century".
So a couple of days ago, I went online to search out the best deal for a new LCD TV. I found a number if exceptional deals on Plasma TVs but was looking for an LCD in the 42 - 46" size area. So I did my homework and found the best deal at A&B Sound. I went online to check out their Boxing Day flyer, and found what I was looking for. They had a 47" Phillips LCD (1080P High Defintion) TV for a great price. In fact the price was over $1000 (yes one thousand) dollars cheaper than the regular price. Wow seemed almost too good to be true. So I went back and did some more research on this model. To my surprise, the TV received great reviews. There were some mixed reviews as well as there always are, but all in all the reviews were pretty good. Some of the great features of this TV include:
For its price point, this is a really great TV. So I purchased one. The salesman said that they had 14 in stock, I was his eighth sale of the morning for this TV, when I went back two hours later he told me that they sold everyone of them. My online bargain hunting paid off. I saved over $1000 on this TV. I watched Canada's first World Junior Hockey hockey game (another Boxing Day tradition) on the new TV... it was awesome.
