Companies pay about $3.5 million for a 30-second ad during the Super Bowl says the LA Times. Drinkers spend $10.8 billion on beer for the game, according to SaveOnBrew.com. And the most diehard fans will spend more than $53,000 for a single seat at the big game, reports ibtimes.com. While plenty of people are throwing around a lot of cash before the February 3 game you can spend much less on a new TV and watch the Ravens and the 49ers face off from the comfort of your home.
Right now you can save $100-$1,100 on select Samsung LED HDTVs at BestBuy.com. Plus they're offering free shipping. And if you decide to go really big, you'll want to check out the 90-inch Sharp LED HDTV, on sale for $8,999.98. It's the first of its kind offered at Best Buy.
Target put dozens of TVs on sale the week before the big game. Save $130 on a Vizio 55-inch 1080p LED HDTV. It's now $869.99, which is what a TV half the size cost just a few years ago.
Lots of large sets are on sale at Dell.com. Save $902, nearly 50-percent, on a new 55-inch Samsung LED LCD TV. It's marked down to $1,097.99.
Tiger Direct is another source for discount TVs. Save $180 instantly on a 50-inch 1080p LCD HDTV made by Sceptre. If you purchase the TV by February 2 you'll also qualify for a $100 rebate, bringing the price down to just $399.
Hoping to spend less than $300? Check out the 39-inch Seiki LED 1080p HDTV from Kmart. Regularly $379.99 it's currently on sale for $298. Plus shipping is free.
