We’ve been saying it for a few weeks now, but as we get down to the wire it bears repeating: the Super Bowl is truly the best time to buy a new TV. Last year’s cutting edge displays are marked down to their lowest price points while retailers make room for new models, just in time for Super Bowl party hosts to show off a fancy new TV. This week we’re highlighting Samsung’s RU8000 model, which is marked down to almost half off at Amazon in anticipation of the big game.
To go along with that new TV, if you’re bogged down with remotes from your TV, streaming device, sound bar, etc. we’d recommend picking up one of Philips’ new universal remotes. What sets this device apart from any other generic universal remote on the market is the compartment on the back, which houses a Fire TV or Roku remote. Since most universal remotes can’t control streaming devices, this is one of the only ways to truly get down to a one-remote lifestyle. Both the Fire TV and Roku models are $5 off at Target.
And if you’re looking for a smaller display, AOC’s 25-inch gaming monitor is down to $159.99 at Amazon, which is 20% off retail price. The G-Sync compatible Full HD monitor has a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time.
On the console gaming front, Xbox One bundles are still discounted in the lead-up to Xbox Series X launch. Plus, Luigi’s Mansion 3 is discounted for the first time since Black Friday.
