TVs Returned After The Big Game Are Your Deal of the Day

A few weeks ago we got a tip: check Amazon Warehouse after the Super Bowl. The logic goes that lots of folks buy more TV than they can afford to impress their friends, then they take advantage of Amazon's rather generous return policy. Amazon can't sell the now-"used" TVs at full price, so they lop 20%-30% off, and sell it on their Amazon Warehouse site. Lo and behold, five business days after the Super Bowl, there are some stellar used HDTV deals.

If you've never used Amazon Warehouse before, it's where Amazon clears out goods that they can no longer sell as new. Like all deals, you've got to read the fine print—some goods are repacked and basically refurbished, but others are sold as-is. The prices vary with the condition of the good, so there's always a chance that one model will be perfect for you, and another has an issue you can't ignore. Some TVs, for instance, won't come with a remote. The good part is Amazon's still got a strong return policy; if you get a lemon, you can return it (within 30 days.) Also, unlike most deals on Dealzmodo, there aren't hundreds waiting in a warehouse. So once they're gone, they're done. [Amazon Warehouse]

TVs Returned After The Big Game Are Your Deal of the Day

When the iPad first came out, an easy criticism was that it was just a giant screen to play Angry Birds on. A few years later, it still seems like playing Angry Birds is one of the best things you can do with your slate. All of the Angry Birds HD games are $1 (down from $3 or $5) for iPad or Android on iTunes and Google Play.
For Android: Angry Birds Star Wars, Angry Birds Space.

For iOS: Angry Birds HD, Angry Birds Space HD, Angry Birds Star Wars HD, Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Seasons.
Bonus! Bad Piggies HD is also $1 today. [Android | iPad]
