Year End Specials at Buy.com

Here are some year end savings that were sent to me by Buy.com.  That’s Buy.com, and not BestBuy.com.  If you aren’t familiar with Buy.com, they are a Aliso Viejo, California based company, and they were rated as one of the Top 50 online shopping experiences in 2007. I have purchased from them several times for digital photo printers, DVDs, and more.

Books

First thing I noticed were their savings on some best selling books. I know your fist thought when it comes to books is Amazon.com, but Buy.com is telling me that these titles are eligible for free shipping, so you may very well find that you’ll save more at Buy.com on these titles.

CNET had this to say about the BDP-S350, “the combination of its small design, solid feature set, and excellent image quality make the Sony BDP-S350 a worthwhile standalone Blu-ray player–especially if you can find it for less than $300”. And her it is, under $300. Speaking for myself, this is the price I’ve been waiting for, a blu-ray player under $300.
