    CrunchDeals: Olevia BD-100 Blu-ray player $149 at Target

    Blu-ray players keep on dropping in price – HUZZAH! – and Target has a nice deal on an Olevia unit. The BD-100 has all the bells and whistles of a Profile 1.1 player at a killer price. True, Black Friday deals were better but chances are no shopkeeper died for this deal (too soon?) Read More

    CrunchDeals: Full home theater system, with 37-inch LCD HDTV: $629, no rebates

    I featured this buyer-made combo below in the Black Friday round-up, but it was so good I figured it deserved its own post so it wasn’t overlooked. Target is selling two items that, when put together, make one hell of a great home theater set-up. If you’re in the market for your first HDTV, and want to really do it right, this is your one awesome chance. It’s a TV and a… Read More
