42" Insignia LED TV for $249.99 + tax at Best Buy - Clearance - B&M - YMMV - free store pickup

+35 Deal Score
96,263 Views
Yes, I know there are a million Best Buy clearance threads today, and they are for TVs, but I think this one is actually a good deal for a 42" LED TV. Reviews are 4.2/5 stars (12 reviews) on Best Buy's website. I just jumped on it online for store pickup. Obviously, YMMV as with all B&M/clearance deals, but worth a shot.

**Edit: don't forget 5% cash back with Chase until 12/31/2012**

not true - you can change to your local store to check for availability. plus, title says B&M and YMMV, so not sure how it's incorrect information. good luck!

edit: also looks to be available in sherman oaks, ca

at the very top where it says best buy >> in store clearance >> WEST LA CA >>, click on "in store clearance" and it should take you to a page with the option to change your store. and even if this specific tv isn't available at your store, they have several LED/LCD tvs marked down significantly, including name brands (sony, toshiba, sharp, etc).

You have to actually go to the main site and change stores, you can't change that particular item.

Bought this TV when it was 300$. Really enjoy it for expecting a supposedly bad brand it looks really good watching Netflix/Playing games. Unfortunately I don't have an HD cable box so non animated show's tend to look a little fuzzy.

Insignia is just a rebranded major brand, they don't make any of the parts themselves, chances are you have an LG TV in an insignia box Wink
