I could get on board with that save $500 on a MacBook. If I had the other $2000 laying around.

Do they usually advertise video game deals ahead of time? The rest of this doesn't interest me.

Would love to see Forza Horizon 3 down to $30 again. Missed out on a few sales last fall/winter, and seems like it hasn't dipped below $40 ever since.

I feel like the 2017 MacBooks will get the same discounts they always do and only last year models will get the $500 off.

What if they "accidently" marked it down to $500 instead of $500 off?

 

I bet you would find the money then.

they just had $400 off MacBooks this previous weekend. Probably at most the $500 off is on the $2800 models 2016

10PM CT?

Is it just me or is that a really weird time to start a sale?

It allows the sale to be "50 Hours" and end at midnight Best Buy corporate time, so it is valid the entire weekend.

$600 off LG TV sets? I wonder if that will include the OLED jammies. I'll pick one up with the swiftness if I can get one for $1300-1400.

lg t.v.'s are garbage ware

look up how they do their pixels to see

 

wait til OLED is cheaper and 60 fps is a thing before upgrading to 4k

Hmm...I've been in the market for a new iPad and that iPad Mini 4 deal sounds tempting.  I'll have to set a reminder to check when the sale starts.  That's probably the best price I'm going to find, right?

It'll only be 600 off the 4k dollar sets probably. They only hit like 1400-1800 on the floor models. Some 55s as low as 1k. I doubt you'll see sub 1800 and they'll be leftover 2016s.

Only the low end 2016s did RGBW. Most 2017s up are fine. If you're unsure just check rtings.com if the 4k is in quotes it's RGBw. Stop being dramatic.

Probably same recycled deals .. like uncharted blood borne etc for 11.99 after gcu and some deals at 31.99 after gcu like horizon etc

SET SAIL FOR FAIL!!!

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Hoping for $500 macbooks, let's go!


Too much real life, not enough time for video games

Probably, yea. That would make it $279.99

However my debate would be that or the new iPad that retails at $329. Staples has them right now for $289 for the 32gb model. Less memory but 2 years newer

I'd like to get newer, but I don't think 32GB is enough space.

Don't get your hopes up for any good gaming deals. I saw the list and didn't even think it was worthy of posting early. It's pretty much just an Xbox One with a free controller, stereo headset, and Lego Batman 4K download and a few games with unspectacular prices like $10 off Lego City Undercover.

Did you see what the MacBooks prices would be?
