All this shopping for other people is getting exhausting. Anyone else miss the season of when we could be selfish and shop only for ourselves? Alright maybe this season of giving isn’t so bad for a change…as long as it’s followed by the season of post-holiday sales!
Still wondering what to get the techie in your life? We’ve dug through those holiday deals for the best prices on everything from Xbox’s to computer software to bring you the 5 best of the week. We also found the five best coupons to help you score some extra savings.
1) Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Bundle + $100 Gift Card $300: Cue excessive blinking. No need to tire those eyes, you’re reading this one correctly. Video game consoles have historically been a top Christmas gift and this year is no different. You won’t find a better price than this one for an Xbox bundle. It includes an Xbox 360 4GB console, Kinect sensor, one wireless controller, membership to Xbox Live Gold, and the Kinect Adventures game. Go ahead and use that $100 Best Buy gift card to buy the hottest new games. We won’t tell.
2) PS3 320 GB Bundle + $50 Amazon GC $300: We weren’t kidding about how a gaming console is the ultimate Christmas gift — especially when it doubles as a blue-ray player, Netflix and Hulu Plus streaming device. Add in a couple games and a wireless controller to seal the deal. Done and done. Now the only question left is whether to spend the $50 gift card on yourself or others…
3) Refurb 32GB iPad 2 $499 Shipped: Everybody wants an iPad. Even if you won’t admit it, we know you do. You probably don’t need it. But you want it. Sure you shrugged it off when your roommate/coworker/spouse got one free from work, but the moment they left the house, you played Angry Birds in a screen five times the size of your phone and started mentally computing how you could possibly afford one of these. Well, here it is. Refubished iPads come with a brand new battery and outer shell and ships in a new box. All manuals and accessories are included and it comes with the same 1-year warranty as a new iPad.
4) LG 47″ LED-LCD 1080p TV $600 Shipped: Just in time for football playoffs and the start of the NBA season, this TV will change how you watch your favorite sports teams. Or your favorite reality TV show. We don’t judge.
5) Corel Paintshop Photo X4 Free W/ Rebate: Did you read that correctly? It said free!! This software lowers to $40 and includes a $40 mail-in rebate. Which means…it’s free! We love things that are free. Can’t beat it.
