Looks decent, guys. The $9.99 deal on CD's is what I was told by a Circuit City employee this past Monday.

I was told a couple of deals by a Best Buy employee, too. In fact, one of them I actually SAW the flyer for! Strange that they aren't listed in Patrick's post. Here they are:

1) DVD player: $39.99; models vary by store (Mintek 1600 in the store near me). 5 hours only, starting at opening on Friday.
2) Mintek 1710 portable DVD player system with 16x9 screen: $279.99, THEN get a $50 mail-in rebate (final price: $229.99). Friday & Saturday only.

Have fun, dudes!

I too saw the cheap DVD players in the store by my house. I always go in the day before Thanksgiving because they always have to stack the loss leaders out in the store since they won't fit in the back. If I remember correctly the brand was Silver Cinema, or Home Cinema, or something like that. I'd never heard of them before but lets just say they looked like $40 DVD players. Definitely not worth waiting for all night in the cold. I would estimate that they had about 100 of them.

However, at that price they are disposable. Good for, if nothing else, giving as a gift to that knucklehead relative who is reluctant to move into the DVD world. :wink:

2) Mintek 1710 portable DVD player system with 16x9 screen: $279.99, THEN get a $50 mail-in rebate (final price: $229.99). Friday & Saturday only.
Anyone familiar with this product. Is it a decent quality portable for the price, or will it die after a few uses.

David Lambert

Jim, I had asked about that Mintek 1710 a while back, and was told it was very decent for the money, and no big tech glitches associated with the low-end brand name that Mintek aquires for it's $50-ish set-top players.
Hence, one will be under the tree for me this holiday season! :D

I'm surprised that Best Buy doesn't have a better CD sale to compete with Circuit City.

By the way, note that Tower Records now has SACDs for 10% off until early January. I believe this deal only applies to in-store purchases.

Oh, one more thing. According to the Circuit City flier I have, the $9.99 CD sale runs all day Friday, not just from 7 a.m. until noon.

thank you keith- i don't get off work until 2:00 so i was going to skip C.C. altogether, but now i'll check it out n see if i can pick up some CDs i've been holding off on.

I was told personally by a CC employee that the $9.99 CD thing stops at noon. I wonder where the disconnect is with your flyer? Huh!

Patrick Sun

Well, just show the CC clerk the ad where it says the CD sale is all day as printed in the flyer. I don't think CC is going to want to try and piss off customers on their biggest shopping day of the year.

Oh, I neglected to mention that at CC there's a APC 6-outlet (3-outlets are power, 3 are UPS'd) UPS for free after MIR. That's really the only thing I want.
