If you weren’t quick (or crazy) enough to rush out right after Thanksgiving for Black Friday, there’s always Cyber Monday. Rather than racing to overcrowded stores and shopping malls, the post-holiday shopping event lets you snag significant deals while lounging on the sofa–or taking a break at work. If you missed out on the pre-weekend savings or are already rid of your Black Friday hangover, check out some of these tech-savvy steals from Walmart.
Black Friday offered some compelling deals on new TVs, but those who waited for Cyber Monday can grab a 46-inch full HD TV for under $500. The Samsung features a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080, even though the refresh rate is a somewhat low 60Hz. Those looking to replace their bedroom or living room TV will want to take advantage of this 50 percent discount.
TV shoppers on an even tighter budget should check out Sceptre’s discounted flatscreen. The $249 HD TV comes with a 1920 x 1080 LED panel, a refresh rate of 60Hz and three HDMI inputs for streaming content from your various devices. Those seeking a new TV for their college dorm room or a secondary flatscreen for the den may be interested in this sub-$300 deal.
