On line or Online? That is the Question!

The turkey made you sleep like a baby and now you need to decide; “Do I crawl out of bed, drive down to the mall, get in line with the rest of bargain hunters, and freeze my you know what…or…do I turn off the alarm go back to sleep, and get the same deals online?”

Here are Seven reasons to brave the elements and do battle with the hordes of early birds:

An HP Pavillion laptop for $349 at Office Depot. Yes, you can get cheap laptops online in this price range but this one is an HP laptop with a 15.4” display, 3GB or memory, and a 160GB hard drive. See all deals from Office Depot »

A Wii is worth getting up a wee bit early for but a big Wii bundle, now that’s something to crow about. Sam’s Club may still have some of these in stock by the time you get there but you’re going to have to be an early bird to get this worm. It includes an Nintendo Wii Bundle that includes two games 3 remotes, and 3 Nunchuks for $425.00. See all deals for Video Games »

You could hit an early morning bull’s-eye at Target on Friday. One of the deals that stands out is the Kodak MX1063 MP it’s a 10.3 megapixel camera for $89 it’s similar to the Kodak M1063 which has a 3X optical zoom and takes HD videos. See all deals from Target »

With the DTV transition around the corner in February, the Westinghouse 26 LCD TV for $299.00 at Target could make a good replacement for grandma’s old analog set, “what’d you say?” Amazon is selling the same set for $429.99. See all deals from Target »

It could be a Blu Christmas this year (ugh). There are some very low priced Blu-ray players on sale this Black Friday but one of the best deals is the Profile 2.0 capable Sony BDP-S350 available at Sears for $179.00. See all deals from Sears »

Best Buy is selling a Panasonic Viera 50” Plasma TV for $899. It only goes up to 720p (not 1080p) but it only costs $899, where else are you going to get a quality Plasma TV that big, for that price? It’s a steal of a deal, for sure. See all deals from Best Buy»

Target, among other stores, is offering a couple of heavily discounted Garmin nuvis. These GPS’ are starting to show their age but will help you find your way just fine. We like the nuvi 200W which has the wide 4.3 inch display. For $119 it’s almost worth getting out of bed for at oh dark thirty. See all deals from Target »

On the Other Hand…

If you’re looking for an excuse to sleep in and spare the mayhem we have seven arguments to justify staying home and doing your shopping online. Here’s one:

Radio Shack Deals
Dell is selling the Sharp LC42SB45U 42” LCD for a very low price of $799.00. Amazon has the same model for sale for $847.97 with free shipping. Amazon is offering the slightly better model the Sharp LC42D64U for $999.98 with free shipping. See all deals for Office Supplies »
