- Samsung 65" 1080p Smart HDTV for $750
Samsung (UN65J6200) 62-inch LED-backlit LCD 1080p HDTV with built-in apps for $800, and code 1021_HIS50H7C applies $50 off in the cart.
Final price only appears on the final checkout page.
Normally about $1,000, and has positive reviews.
- Westinghouse 55" 1080p HDTV for $300
Westinghouse (WD55FB1530) 55-inch LED-backlit LCD 1080p HDTV for $300 when added to the cart.
Most other 55-inch HDTVs sell for around $450 to $600.
Many reviewers on BestBuy.com like the picture quality and value.
Our experience with Westinghouse TVs has been mixed.
We had one Westinghouse TV last 6 years, and still works fine.
Another completely died in 3.5 years.
Several people complained about their lack of any reasonable warranty service of TVs which died within 6 months, however that has never happened to us.
The Best Buy cart has an option to add Geek Squad warranty which covers the TV from any defects or outages, and would still keep the total cost less than most other 55-inch TVs.

Rated one of the fastest and most reliable SSDs on the market today, and includes a 10 year warranty.
Also, the Samsung "Pro" series support hardware encryption which activates when you set a "hard drive password" or "disk password" in your computer's BIOS.
So if a laptop equipped with a Samsung Pro gets stolen, the entire drive would be illegible and cannot be accessed by the thief.
For this reason alone, we use Samsung Pro SSDs in all our laptops.

- LG 55" OLED 1080p Curved HDTV for $1100 (expired)
LG (55EG9100) 55-inch 1080p OLED Curved Smart HDTV for $1100 with free delivery.
This is $200 less than normal.
OLED is a new screen technology that independently lights each pixel, allowing a sharper image than a regular LED-lit LCD screen.
OLED is similar to the old Plasma TVs, which can make each pixel perfectly black, something LED/LCD screens cannot do.
Unlike Plasma though, OLED screens consume very little energy.
In our opinion, the Kindle is one of the best eBook readers on the market.
The design is simple and lightweight,
and consumes very little energy.
A single battery charge can last weeks.
Our favorite part is the true LCD screen, which does not have any backlighting.
Staring at anything with a backlight, like a computer screen, phone or tablet screen, or television is the same thing as staring at a light bulb.
These can cause eyestrain, a medical condition that can give headaches and effect eyesight, especially with prolonged use in low-light rooms.
The Kindle does not use a backlight.
- 4-AA Battery Charger Kit for $13
Fujitsu 4-unit battery charger with 4 rechargeable AA batteries for $13 with free shipping.
The charger works with either 2 or 4 AA or AAA batteries, and claims to recharge them up to 2,100 times.
The reviews are mostly positive, but not positive as a Panasonic model that costs 30% more.
