    I was just flipping through the ads in the Sunday paper and a local retailer here in South Eastern Wisconsin is advertising a DVD player for $9.00 after rebates.
    I know these threads pop up around Christmas time. Has anyone else seen any comparable pricing?

    For that price why wait for Christmas? Hand them out now and you can lose those friends by Easter. Though it will probably be Dec. before those rebate checks start to trickle in. And no, I haven't seen that type of pricing out here on the west coast lately, but I haven't looked very hard either.

    That's crazy. They just want to get you in the store so you will buy a $50 cable for it, and maybe sell you a few overpriced movies.

    Seriously, you probably will not see those rebates.
    Also, it's amazing the picture they can get out at that pricepoint.

    I love cheap, in my case. I have a hitachi rptv that don't support prog. scan because of a chip they didn't install. Well I bought a protron from hh gregg and the 27 dollar dvd player works with prog. scan, while my panasonic. and jvc don't and they cost abou 6 times more.Viva la cheap.
