Insignia NS-2BRDVD Blu-ray player $129.99 shipped

Insignia_Blu-ray_player.jpgPaying $129.99 for a Blu-ray player is an acceptable proposition. It's the type of price point needed for mainstream Blu-ray adoption. Best Buy is currently selling the Insignia NS-2BRDVD Blu-ray player for $129.99 shipped, meaning you can order it online and have it delivered to you. Sure, it's not a Profile 2.0 player (it's Profile 1.1) and it doesn't stream Netflix movies or anything. But for a penny under $130 it does feature 1080p output and upconversion, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD audio, and a one year warranty. You'll be on your own for the HDMI cables as well but they don't cost too much if you look around.

Blockbuster has unlimited rentals for $10

blockbuster-sb.jpgBlockbuster may not be rolling in the dough, but keeping customers in mind the video retailer keeps rolling out the deals. Today it announced the Summer Escape Pass, giving customers unlimited weekly movie and video game rentals for only $10. The catch is that there can only be one rental at a time, so you'll have to make a few trips to get your money's worth. This is a limited summer time promotion, but until the leaves fall you can purchase a new pass each week.

Sony cuts Playstation 2 (not PS3) price to $99

ps2-pricedrop.jpgSony has announced it'll be dropping the price of a Playstation 2 to $99.99 starting April 1. That should definitely get the PS3 predecessor flying off shelves everywhere. Compared to the PS3's $400 price tag, buying a PS2 now is likely buying a 2 x 4 instead of a new house. In today's economy at least. Unfortunately for those that were hoping for a PS3 price cut, an official statement from Al De Leon, PR Manager for Sony Computer Entertainment America, confirms such thinking is nothing more than a pipedream. "As we have stated previously, we do not have plans for a PS3 price drop, and any rumors to that effect are false and are the result of speculation," De Leon said. "SCEA remains focused on the long-term momentum of PS3. With the industry's best software lineup this year, combined with our most aggressive marketing campaign to date, we remain confident in our approach and the value we're delivering with PS3."

Okay, but the only problem with Sony's strategy here is that for the next few quarters, the PS2 and not the PS3 will be the world's number one selling game console.

Steals and deals: 52-inch Vizio LCD HDTV for under $1000

Vizio_52-inch_270x269.jpgNow this is a deal! CompUSA is selling the 52-inch Vizio VX52LF for only $999.99! It is refurbished and only has a 90 day warranty, but in a time of economic despair, why not take the chance and save $1000. The VX52LF is a 1080p set with a trio of HDMI slot, a pair of component inputs, and a universal remote. Not bad!

Walmart cuts HDTV prices for Super Bowl

samsung32in-sb.jpgSadly, NFL football will come to an end next weekend. On the other hand, Super Bowl time means party time, i.e., gluttony/debauchery. And with the party comes beer and and a big screen. In order to buy more beer, you got to find a big screen deal, right? Well, Walmart is here to help, dropping its HDTV prices to Black Friday-like deals. You can get yourself a 32-inch Samsung LCD HDTV for $498, or spring for something larger like a 46-inch Sony for $1298 with a $100 gift card included. Not bad. Hit the read link for all the deets.

The Best Buy deal that never was

PS3-0.58x0.58.jpgBest Buy is rolling out a deal that will net you a 32-inch LCD HDTV and 80 GB Playstation 3 for $1100. Though the two items combined are about $300 less than you'd pay if bought separately at Best Buy, this doesn't really seem like a deal. Not only is it fairly simple to find a 42-inch set for under $1000 from online retailers like Amazon, but who the heck wants a 32-inch set these days...well, except for the bathroom.

A Circuit City Q&A for liquidation deal shoppers

circuit-city.jpgThings aren't always clear cut when it comes to companies going out of business. Can you still use the Circuit City gift cards you got for Christmas? Will warranties still exist? You just never know, but here's a few pointers from Circuit City's Q&A page:

Will Circuit City stores continue to accept Circuit City gift cards?

  • Yes, customers holding Circuit City gift cards may redeem them at full value at our stores during the liquidation sales. Once the stores are closed and the company is out of business, the gift cards will have no value.

Are Circuit City's extended warranties affected by the liquidation?

  • No. Circuit City Advantage Protection PlansĀ® (extended warranties) have been backed by third-party independent companies for more than 15 years and as a result, are not impacted by Circuit City's closing.

  • Currently, all Circuit City Advantage Protection Plans are fully backed by the Assurant Solutions companies. Assurant Solutions operates as Federal Warranty Service Corporation, Sureway, Inc., and United Service Protection, Inc. Assurant Solutions is part of Assurant, Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), and its extended service contacts are backed by an Assurant insurance subsidiary rated A "Excellent" by A.M. Best Co.

When will the liquidation sales begin?

  • Liquidation sales begin as early as Saturday, January 17, 2009, and will last as long as it takes to sell through the merchandise at each of the stores. We expect the sales to wrap up by the end of March 2009.

How much will merchandise be marked down, and can customers negotiate prices for the merchandise?

  • There will be clearance pricing, but specific discounts are not being announced. All sale prices are at the discretion of the liquidator. Prices are non-negotiable and all adjustments must be approved by the liquidator's on-site managers.

What payment types will be accepted at the liquidation stores?

  • Stores in liquidation will accept cash, Circuit City gift cards and most credit cards. Personal checks will not be accepted. All sales are final.

Will Circuit City's price matching policy or the One Price PromiseSM apply during the liquidation sale?

  • Because the liquidation company is in charge of the sales at the closing stores, their policies are in force. So, One Price Promise does not apply during liquidation events, nor does the company's Unbeatable Price Guarantee. All sales are final.

What about returns and refunds?

  • Customers can return products they purchased prior to January 16 for a 14-day period for exchange or refunds. All other terms of return policy are in force.

  • When closing sales begin on or around January 17, 2009, all sales will be final.

Will delivery service be available for products purchased from liquidation stores?

  • Yes, home delivery service will still be available for products purchased from liquidation stores.

Vudu Slashes Prices In Half, Slips Under The Radar

Wireless_Bundle_Christmas.pngI've never really understood why Vudu doesn't do a better job of publicizing its deals. Sure enough, yet another Vudu deal has slipped under the radar. Currently Vudu has a couple of Christmas specials happening. The price of the $299 Vudu box has been cut to $99 plus you get $50 in movie credits bringing the total price to $149. The company also has a wireless bundle that comes with the above plus the Vudu wireless kit for a total of $198.

The Vudu box can instantly stream 1080p flicks and store up to 50 standard definition movies on its 250 GB hard drive. The wireless kit allows you to connect your Vudu box to your home network and HDTV using a pair of 802.11g wireless adapters eliminating cable clutter. Whether or not the Vudu sale extends beyond Christmas isn't mentioned.
