I was doing my part for the economy, by buying a new TV from Amazon.com for myself. TV's have gotten really cheap, compared to just a few years ago: a 19" Vizio LED LCD 720P, made primarily for bedrooms and kitchens only costs $128. I paid $250 for a 15" TV about 4 or 5 years ago, and the picture is not very good at all, compared to the CRT TV it replaced.

Anyways, when I went to check out, it showed a $50 gift card credit, with the explanation that if I signed up for an Amazon Rewards Visa card, I would get an instant $50 gift card.

That made my $128 TV cost only $78. It took less than 5 minutes from start to finish. For $50, I will go to a little extra trouble to pay an extra bill this month.

I use my 'little' TV quite a lot, and I have never been very pleased with the one I have been using. Reviews of the Vizio have been very good, especially given it's price point, which used to be $150, last summer.

With the Cyber Monday discount, and the $50 gift card, I got it for almost exactly HALF that price. Hard to beat.

When it was really hot in the summer, I got in the habit of watching my small TV much more, because my 32" Vizio with the stereo amplifier put out a very noticible amount of heat.

Now, I watch my smaller TV much more than the 'main' one, which is what led me to buy a better TV.

I'm really looking froward to a bigger, brighter TV set.
