Televisions and electronic games

Big-screen TVs always attract a lot of interest, Butler says, and consumers can expect to see prices up to 40 percent off.

Jim Barry, spokesman for the Consumer Electronics Association, predicts a good selection of LCD and plasma televisions in the 40-inch range for $500 or less.

The CEA predicts that 2014 will be a record sales year for electronics, driven by emerging technology, including 4K ultra-high-definition televisions.

These TVs can retail for upward of $25,000, but also as low as $2,000. Some markdowns could be as much as 40 percent to 50 percent.

Electronic games are a good buy this time of year, Butler says -- consoles as well as used games. Expect to save 10 percent to 25 percent on gaming systems and used games.
