Searching for deals at Circuit City

January 19, 2009 5:21:16 PM PST
Circuit City is going out of business and consumers looking for a deal are rushing to the stores. As they say, "everything must go."

But here is a warning. A recent survey of other going out of business sales found the deals were not what many consumers thought. Often stores staying in business offered better deals.

The advice? Check prices at the prices at other retailers before going down to Circuit City.

The items most likely to be heavily discounted are store brands and items without much demand. In this case, the deals may be found on cables and connectors.

Make sure you understand warranties when buying big ticket items.
