How to build the deal entertainment center for NCAA March Madness
The biggest month in college basketball is upon us. Fans getting geared up for March Madness know that preparation is important. Snacks, drinks and friends are essential to enjoying the tournament, and having parties to watch the games can be a really fun way to get into the NCAA action.
Hosting friends for March Madness might require a little something extra in terms of your entertainment setup, however. If you’re in the market for a new TV, surround sound system and more, you might find yourself committing a lot of money, unless you’re willing to shop around for great prices.
Upgrade your screen
Watching the game at home is great, but only if you’ve got a screen big enough for lots of people to enjoy it. Fortunately, there are a number of retailers who sell TVs, and that means lots of potential for great deals. One of the traditional best stores to snag a TV is Best Buy. It offers 3 percent cash back, and Best Buy has a deal on a 55-inch Samsung LCD 3-D TV with a serious discount. Walmart, on the other hand, is known to often have great deals on TVs, and offers 2 percent cash back.
You can also try other big-box retailers such as Target, which also offers 3 percent cash back and is having a March Madness sale on TVs, and more off-the-beaten-path outlets including Dell, which offers 2 percent cash back and has a number of cool deals on TVs.
Sound brings you into the game
While visuals are important to any sporting event, sound can be just as critical. You might start with Radio Shack when searching for surround sound systems and speakers. It offers 2 percent cash back and as much as 70 percent off on speakers. The retailers above also often have surround sound setups on which you can catch good prices, and there are top-tier retailers such as Bose.
Whatever you might need, March Madness sales are bringing lots of great deals your way. Shopping around is key to finding what you need at a manageable price in time for your tournament parties.
