Codes do not apply toward big brand name items, like Samsung SSDs and mobile phones.
Monoprice sells some of our favorite kinds of cables, including speaker cables, subwoofer cables, Ethernet cables, HDMI cables, computer cables, etc.
We love their high quality, low prices, and huge inventory.
Be sure to read the product reviews of items before buying.
We purchase almost all of our A/V and computer cables from Monoprice.
Their regular cables are similar in quality to Monster cables and retail store-bought cables, at a fraction of the price.
They do charge shipping per order based on weight, and the per-item price usually drops when you order more.
For example, if you know you already need to pay shipping for a 150-foot Ethernet cable (a heavy item), it may add no extra shipping cost to add a few light 2-foot and 6-foot Ethernet cables.
- Refurbished Yamaha A/V Receiver for $300 (expired)
Woot.com is selling a Refurbished (not new) Yamaha TSR-5790 7.2-Channel A/V Receiver with 4K HDTV passthrough, Bluetooth, and Wifi for $300 with free shipping.
Yamaha provides a free app for controlling the receiver, and it can use AirPlay to play music wirelessly from an Apple device.
Normally, refurbished electronics only come with a 90-day warranty, however they are giving a 1-year warranty with this purchase.
For multi-room support, we really like Yamaha's "Zone B" feature.
Most people only need 5.1 surroundsound in their living room, so the extra 2 speakers (the "7.2" part of the description) can be used in a separate room.
Most receivers have a "Zone 2" feature, which isolate the second room to a separate audio channel.
You can play audio from a separate source from the main zone, however that source must be a stereo or analog signal.
It will not work to play audio from a digital source like a Blu-Ray Player or TV/DVR box.
However Yamaha's "Zone B" feature actually copies the main audio's digital source, and downgrades it to stereo for play in your second room.
For example, we have a Yamaha Receiver powering the 5.1 speakers in the living room, and the stereo speakers in the outdoor patio.
When we walk outside, we use the Yamaha app to turn on "Zone B", and whatever is playing in the living room will play on the patio.
Without "Zone B", it would be difficult to set up a Receiver to copy the audio to the patio.

- 4-Pack of Rechargeable AAA Batteries for $7

- Samsung 50-inch 4K 2160p HDTV for $639

- 49" UltraHD 4K HDTV for $360
Changhong 49-inch LED-backlit LCD UltraHD 4K 2160p HDTV for $360 with free shipping.
Changhong makes inexpensive TVs without the bells-and-whistles of many other TVs.
There are no built-in apps, no built-in Wifi, no 3D, no 120Hz refresh rate, and no universal remote control.
Most of the reviews are positive, especially considering the $360 price is about half what other 49-inch 4K HDTVs sell for.
The biggest risk is the support.
If your TV has issues after Newegg's 30-day replacement guarantee expires, some reviewers say the support was poor.
So be aware of the risk before deciding to buy.
We have two older 50-inch Changhong 1080p TVs.
After 2 years of use, one recently had intermittent issues where the power button would not turn the TV on.
Unplugging/re-plugging in the TV fixes the issue for about a week, then it happens again.
Overall, we are still happy with our Changhong because of the cost savings over comparable TVs at the time.

Beware the value on your eGift Card will expire 90 days after issue, so you must remember to spend the credit.

If your old Kindle is working, you can get anywhere from $20 to $50 for your trade-in.
If your old Kindle is not working, you can get about $5 for it.
Amazon will send you a free shipping label.
All you need to do is box your old Kindle, and drop off at a UPS location.
Amazon will send you the Kindle trade-in credit plus $20 credit toward a new Kindle.
For example, if you have a 3-year-old Kindle (one without a touch-screen) that still works fine, you can get about $33 trade-in credit plus $20 credit toward a new Kindle.
The newest (touchscreen model) Kindle sells for $80, so after trade-in and bonus credit, it would cost about $27 to upgrade.
If your old Kindle is broken, you can get about $5 Amazon credit plus the $20 credit toward a new Kindle.
This means you can get a new, working Kindle for about $55 when trading-in your broken one.
- Refurbished Hisense 50" 4K Smart HDTV $400
Hisense 50-inch 4K 2160p Smart HDTV for $400 with free shipping.
It is refurbished (not new), meaning it had been previously broken, returned, fixed, and is now re-sold through Woot.
It only includes a 90-day warranty, unlike most TVs which include at least a 1-year warranty.
The reviews of the TV on Walmart.com are decent, but not great.
The TV sells for about $550 new.
The consumer reviews on BestBuy.com are very positive.
People often ask us, "when is the best time to buy a new TV?"
Our answer is usually: never.
Almost all computers and consumer electronics drop in value the day you purchase them, and will continue to drop in value for as long as you own them.
A better question should be, "how long can you wait to buy a new TV?"
The longer you wait, the cheaper (and often better) the TVs will be.
Usually manufacturers release new models of their TVs in the summer months, so previous year's models are often on clearance.
The week of Thanksgiving also has some of the best deals of the year on all TV, but many of the best deals are on low-end TVs.
You can wait months or even years before buying a TV, but the best deals are the best values for you today.
If you don't really need a new TV, wait.
