Such a deal. Mitsubishi has begun to pack a free VUDU with each TV. Frank Martin, VP of Marketing claims that since most future TV will be equipped with streaming, the company's thinking is that until that time, free takes an excellent second place. Customers will also get a $50.00 service credit.

In addition to a deal of the week, such as this week's $350.00 off Denon's AVR-989 805-Watt 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver, there are substantial savings to be found like:

Freakin' Friday! Shop Online for Cables

computercables.jpg

A couple of weeks ago, we needed a new cable. Thinking that it would be a simple and inexpensive thing, we went to our nearest electronics where the least expensive USB extension cord was $15.00. We managed to buy one at half price when we found one in that had been repackaged, but we certainly learned our lesson. The moral here is that before you let that sales associate talk you into saving your gas by buying an overpriced cable, you can probably buy online for a fraction of the price. Here are some examples of some that are each less than $2.00:

Freakin' Friday! Flip UltraHD Camcorder

flipultrahd.JPGfliptripod.jpg

If you still haven't made your claim to fame on YouTube, Flip has a new UltraHD Camcorder. Our Flip has enabled us to upload with such simplicity that we are positively addicted to shooting everything in sight (including our cat.) They have also released a tripod that Amazon will toss in for free (or another accessory) if you purchase before May 13. Sure there are others for less, but as far as we are concerned, if it ain't broke...

Ultimotion, Inexensive Wii Alternative

ultimotion.jpg

Can't afford a $250.00 Wii? How about the Jakks Pacific Ultimotion as an alternative? The system comes with bowling, golf, tennis, baseball and football controllers. Play is similar to the Wii, and for less than $50.00, you may not get as extensive a selection of games, but this could be a viable solution for couch potato kids.
