Electronics can be found for cheap if you know where to look. On a recent shopping trip in Abilene, Texas, I checked out audio, video, and other electronics on Clearance Racks at several retail stores to find the best deals in town. Shopping discounted markdown multimedia electronics on the bargain sales racks can help you save a bundle! To keep a low profile while shopping , I shot this on my cell phone, so please excuse any shaky video.
I visited the following Retailers:
Dirt Cheap, 841 N Judge Ely
Ross Dress for Less, 3449 Catclaw Drive
Big Lots, 3204 S Clack St
Office Max, 3226 S Clack St
Target, 3710 Ridgemont Dr
Walmart, 4350 Southwest Dr
Best Buy, 4310 Buffalo Gap Rd
Sam’s Club, 5550 S Clack St
I found excellent clearance deals on LG and Samsung Televisions, a Denon Receiver, an Onkyo Receiver, a Sony Turntable, Bluetooth Speakers, Bluetooth Headphones, TV Wall Mounts, Webcams, Portable Chargers (including Anker), Phone Cases, Tablet Cases, Cassette Adapters, Selfie Sticks, Earbuds, Drones, XBOX One games, PS4 games, Cell Phones, Cable Boxes, TV Antennas, USB Cables, Apple Lightning Cables, Wireless Keyboards with Mouse, Utility Knives, All-in-one PCs, Laptops, LCD Monitors, Wifi Range Extender, Monitor Lifts, Casio Keyboard, and Sound Bars.
I took advantage of some of these deals and took home a decent haul!
