If you weren't convinced the first time I mentioned that Circuit City's liquidation sales aren't offering unbeatable prices, take it from ABC Action 6 News. The news team investigated the prices at the going-out-of-business chain and discovered that the liquidators are doing a good job and making as much money as possible, so that Circuit City can pay back its creditors. Below are some of the discoveries the team made.
- A Juno DVD at Circuit City was selling for $21.99 with a 10 percent discount, while the same DVD was selling for only $14.99 at Best Buy.
- Out of 25 items, 10 were better buys at Best Buy.
- They found cheaper prices online for all 25 items.
The ABC team gives a smart reminder that none of the items purchased at liquidation sales can be returned. They suggest checking to see that all parts and accessories are accounted for, ensuring that manuals are included, making sure warranties are good, and waiting for more markdowns as the sales continue.
