- Sceptre 49" 4K HDTV for $280
Sceptre 49-inch 4K Ultra HD 2160p TV for $280.
We have never used a Sceptre TV, but know people who believed their TV was manufactured poorly.
Be sure to read the reviews and factor the low cost with quality.
You can return online Walmart purchases at a store, but returning a large 49" TV can be physically difficult.

Beware that wireless keyboards are susceptible to hackers.
As a Wired.com writer explains, a nearby hacker can tap into your keyboard.
They can either:
Listen to what you are typing (passwords, email addresses, credit card numbers, etc), and
Inject keystrokes at a rate of 1,000 words per minute, which can hijack your computer with commands like uploading private information or opening a backdoor that the hacker can exploit later.
So if you are security conscious, please be aware of the risks of using wireless keyboards in an office building, apartment complex, or coffee shop where hackers can be close by.
- iPhone 5S 16GB for Straight Talk for $149
Apple iPhone 5S 16GB for Straight Talk 4G LTE service for $149 with free shipping.
This works with Straight Talk's no-contract pre-paid plans for as cheap as $30 per month.
These plans can be cheaper than most other carriers, and you have no long-term contract to keep.
For the first 12 months, you can only use this phone with Straight Talk.
After one year, they can "unlock" the phone for use on international wireless networks and other networks in North America.
So if you are planning a trip overseas over the next year, you cannot use this iPhone.
The iPhone 5S normally sells for about $250 unlocked.
