- 48-Pack of AA Batteries $7
Best deal on AA batteries in a while.
The previous deal was $7.50 for a 48-pack.
For an even better deal, choose "Easy Replenish" for $6.29.
You will have to remember to cancel after your order ships, otherwise the Easy Replenish will automatically re-order more batteries for you after a specified time has elapsed.
- TCL 55" 4K TV with HDR and Roku for $361
Electronics Express has the best deal on the TCL 55S405 55-inch 4K (2160p) TV with HDR and Roku.
Price is $380 with free shipping, and no sales tax for customers outside of Tennessee and Alabama.
Also, coupon code 5OFFPROMO applies 5% off (apply in the shopping cart).
We owned this TV since December, and love a few things about it:
It's one of the best prices available for a 55-inch TV today.
This was our upgrade from a 1080p TV, and the HDR made the colors appear more life-like.
Roku remote included, and the TV can be fully controlled by the Roku app (including power on/off).
Beware that Electronics Express does have a few negative reviews from customers who bought from their retail store, but we heard few problems with online orders.
They sell a lot through Amazon and Ebay, and usually have great prices.
- LG 55" 4K TV and $100 Gift for $500
LG 55-inch 2160p 4K TV with HDR for $500 with free shipping.
A free $100 Dell Promo eGift card is automatically added to the cart, and delivered by email a few weeks after purchase.
The free $100 "Promo" eGift card can be used toward anything at Dell.com (computers, monitors, TVs, accessories, etc.) within 90 days from delivery.
The TV normally sells for about $500 without a free gift card.
Even if your home does not have 4K (2160p) players, the HDR benefit is a noticeable upgrade from a 1080p TV since blacks look actually black and colors look more vivid.
They are also selling a
Vizio 55-inch 4K TV with HDR for $500 and includes a free $150 Dell Promo eGift Card.

Note that TV prices could rise in about 6 months (some say by Christmas), so now may be a good time to consider upgrading an old 1080p TV to 4K with HDR.
Although the impact of tariffs will seem to hit clothing, shoes, and furniture sooner than electronics, experts seem to believe all household goods will ultimately hit US consumers' wallets in the near future.

The total price changes to $50 for the regular model, or $70 for the portable.
Those are for 2.

At $25 each (or $35 each for the portable), this is cheaper than 2 Google Home Minis at $39 each.
The reviews of the Insignia speakers are mostly positive.
Reading the reviews, people love the sound quality, the Google Assistant, and the clock on the front.
However, some reviews complain about the wrong time being displayed, and little support available to help.
As one reviewer said, "hold on to your receipt in case you can't get the time to set properly and need to return the unit."

- Amazon Fire 8" Tablet for $50
Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet for $50 with free shipping.
Amazon's tablets are definitely the cheapest when compared to the prices of iPad and Android.
The Fire has far fewer features than more expensive tablets, and far fewer apps & games in their download library.
It won't sync (or Cast) the display with a TV and won't play YouTube videos, but will play a large selection of shows & movies with an Amazon Prime membership.
