Deal Details

Just got back from touring some stores. Saw the display at one CVS and confirmed prices at 2 others. Here's a list from what I can remember.

7" Tablet Price update $9.99, thanks zirjacks http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=56741804&postcount=99
7" LCD DVD Player $19 down from $79.99
13" HDTV $19 down from $79.99
Home Theater with 2.1 speakers, subwoofer and dvd player $19 down from $79.99
Upconverting DVD player for $13.

I only got the 7" Tablets for $25 + $3 recycling fee. The signs said that the 7" LCD DVD and the 13" HDTV had $16 recycling fees but I don't understand why the 7" LCD DVD would have a bigger one than the 7" Tablet since they have the same size screen.

Here's a review of the tablet. It has HDMI. It works as a USB host. You can plug keyboards, drives, etc into it.

Updated my email earlier today and got the 20% coupon. Email with 20% off instructed me to scan my rewards card at the kiosk in the store in order to get the coupon. Coupon is 20% off purchase brick and mortar for non-sale items so not sure if that would work on these discounted electronics. I think this will be YMMV depending on the manager on duty? Confused

Do they keep the tablets and the TV's behind the counter? So you'd have to ask someone to see it?
Gonna swing by a couple when they open and see what I can score for the little brother...
Depends on the store. At the first store I was at, they were all just siting there on shelves with the shelf tags. That's where I took the photo. In the other two stores it was a "mess", the words of the mgr. In those stores, the home theatre system was stacked in front of photo and everything else was just in a pile on the counter. If you don't see them, ask for them. They can check inventory. If it's in inventory and you can't see it, then it might be in lock up somewhere.

Ah ok, thanks! Do you know anything about those speakers? Not looking for something to blow me away, just something better than the speakers on my Sammy plasma TV with an optical out..

Dude, a lot depends on the mgr. At one store, a worker found one for me up at the photo counter. I knew they had 5 so I asked if I could get the others. She looked and looked and couldn't find them. She said she would go ask the mgr to see if they are in lock up. I could hear the conversation. He basically said there's no way they sell for $25. He comes up to the counter and tells me that they don't sell for $25. It's a glitch. The girl working the register said it scans at $25. He then grabbed a Polaroid, scanned that and said it's $100. I said it's a different product. He said that the Polaroid is the substitute for the Craig and that the tablets never go on clearance. He would call corporate in the morning and then call me if it's not a glitch. I said OK but do you have the other 4. He looked and looked and looked and couldn't find them. Finally he called the photo mgr and she told him where they were. He also asked her if the 75% off clearance was legit and she said yes. He then sold them to me for $25 but took out a pen and wrote "no returns" on the receipt. It all worked out in the end.

Not a thing. The DVD that comes with it is useless though. It only has composite and s-video output. Seriously, look at the picture I posted. It says so on the box. Those things must have been made like 10 years ago.

To me the $19 13" HDTV is interesting. If I didn't have a recycle fee it would be a no brainer. The thing is the sign says the fee is $16 which basically doubles the price. I'm not sure that's right though. There is no $16 fee. The fee for a 13" TV should be $8. But the CVS registers are all messed up. They only charged a $3 fee for the 7" tablet. It should have been $6.

Wow what a hassle! Glad it worked out in the end. They pretty much have to honor what the register rings up according to their training manuals, no such thing as a glitch Wink You are one lucky dude! What are you going to do with 4 tablets though?

It's likely part of their Christmas clearance mark downs, not all stores are at 75%. Store here is 75% but most aren't, however no sign of any of these things.

Be nice if my CVS would have this stuff but it never has anything. The Walgreens here is still at 50% for their Christmas clearance. Anyone's Walgreens different?

No luck here in Nassau County (NY). Figured I might be able to snag some but Mineola, NY was out of stock. Albertson/Roslyn, NY it rang up 49.99. Went to Bethpage and the kid told me the last guy had picked it up a few hours earlier for $24.99. Damn.
