To help football fans prepare for the much-anticipated playoff games this weekend, Sears Blue Electronics Crew is igniting 'Favre Fever' with new TV advertisements and special deals so customers can score the ultimate football experience.
As customers are watching the playoff games on their new TV, they can check out Brett Favre's new Sears commercials at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qbQH8zG5kA. In line with the previous Sears ads, the new ad also offers a comedic slant, but this time in reference to Favre's shot at making it to Miami. Featuring Samsung products, the new spots are scheduled to begin airing Sunday, Jan. 24.
For those football fans that want to enjoy the game on a new television, starting this Friday, Jan. 22 and Saturday, Jan. 23, they can cash in on an eight percent instant savings on existing low prices for all TVs 46 inches or larger, anyway they pay. The Sears Blue Electronics Crew will extend the deal through Saturday, Jan. 30 to Sears cardholders only for total electronics purchases more than $999. Discount not available for use with Sears Card finance offers.
The Sears Blue Electronics Crew is also offering additional savings* for its customers, including:
-- $150 savings on a Zenith 42-inch Plasma TV, on sale for $499.99 (regularly $649.99) -- $900 savings on a Samsung 46-inch LED TV, on sale for $1,599 (regularly $2,499) -- Free Blu-Ray Player with purchase of select Samsung TVs from Sunday, Jan. 24 to Saturday, Feb. 6 (* Please note: These deals can not be combined with any other offers.)
Additionally, Sears wants to help its customers throw the ultimate tailgate party by giving a free seven-inch tailgate TV to the first 444 people who purchase any TV on Sunday, Jan. 24 after 6 a.m. EST at Sears.com.
"We are spreading Favre Fever to fans everywhere by extending great savings to our customers so they can enjoy watching the playoffs on a new TV and feel confident with their purchasing decision," said Karen Austin, senior vice president and president, Home Electronics, Sears Holdings. "With the combination of our affordable prices, quality products and real-time price checks, we know our customers will not waffle on their decision to buy a new TV so they can enjoy every play of the game to the fullest."
