Over the weekend I went shopping for my husband’s birthday present. He’s always hard to buy for, but a blogging friend had a great suggestion and it just happened to be something he’s wanted for a while. She suggested a surround sound system.
So, I started my search online to see where I could find the best prices. I looked around and found the one that I wanted at Sam’s Club. Since we had to move everything out of the living room for our carpet to be installed today, I thought it would be a good idea to give it to him a little early so he could set it up when we put the living room back together. When we got home from church yesterday I told him I needed to run a quick errand and went down to Sam’s to pick it up.
While I was there, I saw that they had a 47-inch wide-screen tv on sale for $775. It was the same one that my brother bought a few months ago so I knew it was pretty good. It was marked down because it was the last one they had and was the display model.
I came home and gave hubby his surround sound system (which he was thrilled about) and told him about the tv. He’s been saving some money back for a while for a big screen tv and had $500 already to put toward it. We decided that he could put the rest of it on his visa and that would be our Christmas presents to each other for this year. So. he headed down to Sam’s with our brother-in-law to pick it up. When he got to the register to pay for it, they told him that they don’t accept visa cards so he didn’t get it.
He came home and told me what happened and we decided we were probably better off to wait a while anyway. As the night went on, we kept thinking about it and decided to check around and see what kind of prices we could find elsewhere. We looked online and found a 52-inch projection tv for $999 and after talking about it for a while decided to go ahead and get it. They have a no interest for 24 months deal going on right now and free delivery which I thought was a pretty good deal.
So, Christmas for us will be in September this year. I can’t complain though, because we will have a pretty sweet set-up once we get it all hooked up. I can’t wait!
