That's a shame. You'd figure it would really catch on in a major metropolis.

We keep thinking of Hawaii as a quiet little backwater of Internet connectivity, but our Craigslist has plenty of activity-- especially the June-August "back to the Mainland" moving season and the post-Christmas "gotta pay the bills" clearances.

We're starting to see 50" TVs on sale because the owners are "upgrading"...


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

Pretty good bet is going into sams club right after the christmas and the super bowl. Lots of people get sets for christmas and take them back, or they get them to watch the playoffs on and then return them.

Sams club wipes them down and puts them on sale for about 30% off, usually off to the side or back of the store.

Last superbowl our sams club had about 40 plasma/lcd sets lined up with sale stickers on them... :

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
