CrunchDeals: Walmart's Rolling Prices Out Of The Pocket (football reference) In Time For The Super Bowl

(It’s funny because Peyton’s not going this year — or next)

Hopefully it’s widely known by now that the weeks preceding the Super Bowl is the best time out of the whole year to buy an HDTV. Retailers combine the game’s hype with clearing out leftover Christmas inventory. It’s a home run for you! Wait…Touchdown!

Walmart is getting in on the action with a big sale. The so-called Game Time event includes at least deep discounts on seven HDTVs and even bigger savings if purchased with a Blu-ray player. This isn’t the only sale in town though. Best Buy, Amazon, Frys, and all the rest will have events too so click through, scope out the deals, but ultimately shop around. Brick & Mortar stores will probably even negotiate with you. That’s fun.
