"Black Friday (post deals or purchases)"


          

I'm watching Slickdeals.net for deals, anyone have other sites?

What I might buy:
Black Diamond equipment (trekking poles, lights)
A 77 OLED TV - with a stretch goal of an 83" OLED TV
Shoes


And there's weird stuff, like save 20% at the the Microsoft store by buying on the Instagram APP (not the website): https://slickdeals.net/f/16218583-new-instagram-shoppers-xbox-series-s-console-200-w-instagram-app?src=frontpage

I have like $40 of store credit and they threatened to close my credit card with them if I don't use it so I'm thinking I'm going to order some records. Books, music and movies are buy 2 get 1 free. I already looked and there were 9 I added to my cart but I saw the total and naaah lol I might only get 6 or 3.

They are also giving a $50 gift card if you buy the Xbox Series S at $250. I was thinking of doing that and almost did on Sunday. I figured I spend that gift card on the records but that's still over $200 that I don't need to spend and plus I want a Bluray drive if I'm getting a console. If they would have given me instant access to my rewards on Sunday I think I would have done it but they said 2-3 days to get the gift card and within 10 minutes I was like eh I'll just stick to records.

I do need to see if any of these sales will make sense for gifts.

In response to Reply # 1


  

          

I got 6 records for $60 bucks (after my $40 gift card/rewards). All great albums but I'm unsure on the pressing quality. From the reviews I could find they should be okay. I wanted to get Pusha T It's Almost Dry but it sold out. Got Licensed to Ill instead. I also got Denzel Curry Melt My Eyez (this is what I really wanted), Norah Jones Come Away With Me (this pressing had great reviews) and Led Zeppelin III, IV and Houses of Holy. I and II were too expensive.

When I opened the app it was already set to check out with the Xbox I just had to click one button lol I had to remove it but I did hesitate a little.

Even at "great deal" pricing I'm hesitant to buy things sometimes.

But $10 a record is a steal.

They give you $200 in Amazon credit when approved.

And 5% cash back on Amazon purchases, plus some things get another 5% back.

So the TV I want to buy is $2496 now, so $2296 with the credit and then I'd get back around $240 in cash back.

Waiting to see if it goes on sale - but $450 off is a good deal regardless.

There's another card that'll give you $100 in Amazon credit if you apply too, but I don't want to do 2 cards.

8. "Might get the 77" LG C2 OLED"
In response to Reply # 6


          

I have a 65" LG OLED E9 from 2019, but I'm thinking about going to a 77".

But my TV is great - I've got a great panel with no obvious visible banding on a 5% grey screen and really good color uniformity.

I'm kind of wondering if I should just move my chair closer to my existing TV and not spend the extra money.

Nice! I've had the C1 for a few months now. I did the 65". Its good times for sure. I can't imagine the C2 wouldn't be more of the same.

However...if you have everything set up the way you want on the one you have now AND moving a tad closer would set you right without messing up the room, you might have a point. Or maybe you should at least try it first and see if that cures your fever?

On my end, I was making the mistake of having the TV 'too high' on the wall. When I swapped out my old stuff to the C1, I put the TV much lower and WOW..huge difference in the experience of watching the TV/playing games and 'picture quality'. So there's that to consider too.

In response to Reply # 13


          

But there's a word that you used that really describes what I'm feeling: FEVER.

I don't need to larger TV really, but man I want one. But this TV has a really really good panel.

I also have it at the perfect level and I sit 8 feet away so I'm near the sweet spot. I keep telling my mother that her TVs are mounted too high but she'll never listen.

I think I've been able to talk myself into skipping the upgrade this year unless some incredible deal comes along.

and I dont feel like going thru the trouble to drill more holes.

already looks like swiss cheese back there… lol.

but yeah, might be a nice little Christmas gift to us to lower it and have a better experience.

21. "Ideal height depends on your seating position and size of screen.."
In response to Reply # 20


          

But it's "center of TV screen is eye level." So you're not looking up or down often - that will make your eyes fatigued.

If you are sitting on bar stools or have a sunken room or are in a recliner and ALWAY reclined or it it's your bedroom and your always laying down then it could be a different....

But I always think it's around 25 inches from the ground to the base if you're sitting in a chair in a room. Depends on how tall your TV base is too.

Some basic info: https://www.tomsguide.com/us/how-to-mount-tv,news-24719.html

The same rules of thumb applies for computer monitors.

50% off your 1st business purchase (up to $100 off).

if you dont have a business ein...you might be able to use your personal ssn and claim sole proprietorship (i cant remember if that works or not...but its worth a try).

In response to Reply # 4


  

          

But I wanted the C2. I've been scouring the net to see if there is a drastic difference in picture quality between the two because it seems the B2 has all the same gaming features as the C2, but lacks some of the HDR punch. I'm torn right now trying to decide or just wait for a lower price on the C2.
