Best Buy turns HDTV upgrading into a money-making activity with Buy Back program

best-buy-logo.jpgMost home theater geeks are probably familiar with buyer's remorse, that feeling of regret you sometime have to deal with after shelling out a few dollars for a new HDTV. Why does it happen? Mainly because the HDTV just bought will be a technological midget compared to the next big thing that will be on shelves in 6 months.

Consumer electronics retailer Best Buy knows this and has today launched the Buy Back program, available this month in both bricks-and-mortar stores and online. The premise of the program? Buy, for example, an HDTV under $5000, purchase the Buy Back protection at the time of original HDTV purchase and then know that if you'd like to upgrade in less than 6 months you'll get up to 50% of the original purchase price back in the form of a Best Buy gift card.

Interestingly, the rebate is given back at the time of trade-in - no messy paperwork or waiting 6 weeks after a mail-in.

HDTVs themselves can be traded in for up to 48 months after the original purchase for a rebate of up to 10%.

The Buy Back program in expected to encourage early technology adopters to feel more comfortable making expensive technology purchases in an era of nearly constant product releases and updates from manufacturers.

Walmart ships Xbox 360 for $99...sort of

xbox-gift.jpgWalmart has a pretty sweet deal happening this Father's Day. An Xbox 360 Arcade only costs $99 up through June 20 when it comes down to the nitty gritty. You'll still pay the new $149 price tag but with that you'll get a $50 Walmart eGift card you can use to buy a game or other accessory (you can use it for other stuff too, of course). Oh, and you'll get 2 free games right off the bat including Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts and Viva Pinata), as well as a wireless controller. Nice.

Amazon offering free $100 gift card with Xbox 360 Arcade purchase today. So is Walmart.

xbox360arcade1.jpgToday Amazon is boasting some super hot pre-Black Friday deals that include a $199.98 Xbox 360 Arcade that includes a $100 promo code for the free purchase of other items. The first run is already 100% claimed for this morning, but it'll be on again at 12 PM PST. You'll have to be on the ball though as I expect the 360s will sell out in a matter of minutes. Other Gold Box deals today include a 32-inch Sony Bravia HDTV for $399.99.

Walmart will also be offering the same deal in retail stores across the United States, though there will only be 10 units available per outlet.

Black Friday deal rumor: $49 Blu-ray players

bluray_machines.jpgWill we see $49 Blu-ray players this Black Friday? Research firm NPD's director of industry analysis, Ross Rubin, thinks it's possible. Given the huge uptake in Blu-ray sales this year as prices continue to fall, he thinks if anything we'll definitely see a ton of $99 deals. And as opposed to last year, 2009's deals won't be from second-tier brands like Magnavox and Sylvania, but first-tier brands that ship web-connected models. What do you think? We'll we see a $49 Blu-ray player this Black Friday?

Huge Best Buy HDTV deals this week!

best-buy-screenshot.jpgAlthough the economy is arguably beginning to recover, HDTV retailers won't recover for some time. And many of us just don't have the extra cash around to purchase a new HDTV. Sooner or later, retailers like Best Buy have to cut their losses and clear inventory. Hence the giant savings revealed in today's Best Buy Sunday circular on big-screens sized above 39-inches. In fact, a few 46- and 55-inch Samsung HDTVs have $1100 lopped off the price tag. There's also a few HDTV, Blu-ray and home theater packages featuring big savings as well. Check out HD GURU or the Best Buy flyer for all of the details.

Playstation 3 price cut to $299

kmart-ps3.jpgRumors of an upcoming Playstation 3 price cut have been flying around for awhile, despite repeated denials from Sony, maker of the game console. But today it appears that "the rumors are reality". A promotion has the PS3 listed for $299 (80 GB), a $100 price cut, a drop meant to prepare us for a "new" PS3--presumably the PS3 Slim. Later today there is a Sony press event in New York during which I'm expecting we'll hear more details. Stay tuned.

Steals and deals: Buy a Mitsubishi HDTV and get a free Vudu movie box

vudu-logo.pngMitsubishi is offering a free VUDU box with the purchase of its HDTVs from July 16 to August 10. The VUDU box streams movies straight to your HDTV in 1080p and probably offers the highest quality streaming content around right now. It regularly costs $149 plus you'll get a $50 credit for movie purchases as well.

Mitsubishi is apparently looking to offer something a little different that the traditional HDTV/Blu-ray pair promos that most companies are offering. Plus Mitsubishi doesn't offer streaming services directly through its HDTVs yet, so by offering a VUDU box the company gets around this problem. The company says this is only a promotion and it doesn't have any plans for a long-term partnership with VUDU, nor does it have any plans to incorporate the technology into its TVs.

Steals and deals: Get a Playstation 3 for $100

PlayStation-3.jpgRight off the bat, looking at that title, you should know there will be some sort of catch. And there is...but it's not that bad. Here's how you can net yourself a brand new Playstation 3 for $100:

Step 1: Sign up for Sony's new Playstation Visa Card--it comes with no annual fees and is an instant approval application process (US citizens only though)

Step 2: Order an 80 GB Playstation 3 from (yes you have to pay the $399.99 upfront)

Step 3: Wait 8 to 12 weeks for Sony to send you a $100 credit (effective price now $299.99)

Step 4: While you're waiting (within 12 weeks of your application), charge $1500 to your new Sony Visa and Sony will issue you another $100 credit (effective price now $199.99)

Step 5: Charge another $1500 to your Visa before the 6-month ownership mark and Sony will grant you another $100 credit (effective price now sits at $99.99)

There you go--a $100 PS3!
