Television prices at local big box electronics stores have actually gotten quite competitive in the last couple of years. On top of that, they often price match deals that you find from big online retailers, so there’s nothing wrong with buying your next TV at a local store. That said, definitely don’t let the sales associates there sucker you into buying overpriced HDMI cables to go along with it. Instead, pick up a 3-pack of AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cables for $11.99 on Amazon. They’re just as good and they’re only $4 per cable!

Here are some key details from the product page:
