Grand Avenue (3/23/09)

A few weeks ago, my girlfriend and I were shopping at Best Buy when we noticed the wall of flat panel televisions calling to us. Knowing that the switch to digital was nigh, we considered buying a set and taking advantage of interest-free financing to pay for it over the course of a year. The prices had come down, after all, with 42″ LCDs selling for under $1,000. Then we figured we would wait a while, given that our analog set was still relatively new. That turned out to be a good decision as I was laid off a few weeks later. The offer of credit was enticing, but as the kid in this strip can testify, luxuries that are worth buying are also worth paying for up front.
