- 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.
- Bluetooth Precision Cooker for Cooking Pots $130
This is more of a "new" device than a hot deal.

Clamp it to any cooking pot full of water, and place your food inside a plastic bag or glass jar.
Use the step-by-step recipe directions, and get notified when your food is ready.
Target and Amazon also sell it for the sale price.
This product looks interesting because of its ease of cooking.
You do not even need a stove.
While we a unsure of the long-term health risks of cooking food inside a plastic bag (some plastics can seep into your food when hot, see here and here), the ease of cooking may outweigh the risks especially after reading the many reviews.

Beware of a hacking risk when using a wireless keyboard.
As a Wired.com writer explains, a nearby hacker can tap into your wireless keyboard.
A savvy hacker can:
Snoop what you are typing (passwords, email addresses, credit card numbers, etc), and
Inject keystrokes at a rate of 1,000 words per minute, which can hijack your computer with commands like uploading private information or opening a backdoor that the hacker can exploit later.
So if you are security conscious, please be aware of the risks of using wireless keyboards in an office building, apartment complex, or coffee shop where hackers could be close by.
Bluetooth devices are more secure since they use a pairing/approval access method, but are still susceptible to some hackers.
We suggest never typing passwords and credit card numbers on any wireless keyboard.
