Beat Holiday Sales- Sunday Ads for 12/18

It's Monday, so we are breaking down yesterday's circular ad prices once again.  With Christmas less than a week away, shopping times are tight, but there are still great deals on used products.  Once again, cameras are a focus (with a tablet thrown in for good measure), as they are a hot item this season.  Check out some of the great deals below:

Nikon CoolPix S3100

This ultra-slim point and shoot camera from Nikon seems like a steal at $99.00 (Walmart, Best Buy, Office Depot) given that it's a full $40 off MSRP.  However, you can still capture the same quality 14MP photos for much less if you buy from the used or secondary market.  On average, the S3100 sells for $55 used and $76 new on the secondary market.  That could mean an extra $44 in your pocket to bring in the new year.

Nikon CoolPix S9100

For those looking for a bit more oomph from their compact camera, the Nikon CoolPix S9100 is an excellent choice.  This holiday season we've seen low prices and this week, Best Buy is offering this 12.1MP camera for $279.99 ($50 off MSRP).  Is this the best price? If you are willing to buy used, you can save an additional $100 (on average) or $78 (on average) for new on the secondary market.

Nikon CoolPix L120

While this camera does not offer as large of saving on the used market, it's still a pretty penny off of both Best Buy's and Staples' sale price of $249.99.  Used L120's average prices start at $185 and new at $240.  Sporting a wide-angle lens with 21x optical zoom, this point and shoot camera lets you capture the action both close up and from afar.





Toshiba Thrive

It seems everyone wants a tablet this year and the Toshiba Thrive 16GB is a steal at $399.99 (Staples and Best Buy).  But it can be had for even less.  Used and new prices start at $342 on the secondary market!  It's got full HDMI and USB support, a SD card slot and replaceable battery.  All great features, but they do add some bulk to the overall look and feel.
