Working with Samsung, one of the nation’s biggest retailers is providing consumers with a chance to upgrade their TVs just in time for this Sunday’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers.
Minneapolis, Minn.-based Best Buy is offering consumers the opportunity to update their televisions through a Samsung promotion just in time for the National Football League‘s (NFL) marquee event.
Best Buy’s sales campaign discounts products from Samsung’s 7000 and 8000 Series television lines, and it adds free delivery for purchases made before Feb. 2, as well as a free Wi-Fi-enabled Blu-ray disc player with select purchases.
The discounts range from just over $1,000 for an 8000 Series 46-inch LED LCD television, to $1,300 for a 55-inch 7000 Series LED-LCD television. These discounts temporarily drop the price of the TVs to $2,000 for the 55-inch 7000 Series product and $1,900 for the 46-inch 8000 Series HDTV, and these prices are available for in-store pickup and online sales.
Both products incorporate a list of performance and aesthetic features that are highlighted by options such as 3D compatibility and 240Hz motion processing that is said to provide crisp, fluid images.
In addition to the discounted sale prices, Best Buy is also offering buyers a chance to future proof their purchases. Best Buy’s guaranteed Buy Back Program allows participants to sell back any TV they’ve purchased at Best Buy within four years of purchase for the opportunity to receive up to 50 percent of their purchase back for future purchases.
