Mr. Yum and I are making our holiday wish lists and we are checking it twice. We’re both fans of Best Buy so it makes gift giving a little easier. At least for me. He’ll be happy to tell you that I am the hardest person in the world to buy for. I am not one for more ‘stuff and things’ as I would prefer to have items I am going to use and benefit from. Because of my other freelance gig watching television is a huge part of that side of my writing career. While having a fancy smancy television isn’t a must, it’s still nice to have when I spend so much time using it.
A few years ago our large screen (old style projection) television started to fade away. Hubs was in between job and getting ready to head back to school so he picked up a job at Best Buy. Let me tell you, I learned more about electronics than I ever needed to during his time there. He worked in the mobile department but that did not stop him from learning all he could about the televisions and computers in stock. When our television finally died, he used his employee discount and some Best Buy Rewards to purchase the flat panel television we have now. We don’t have cable; instead we have a PS3 that allows us to watch DVD, Hulu Plus, Netflix, and other services like Crackle. We also have a Western Digital box that provides the same services but this allows us to be connected to our network hard drive. This is where we keep a lot of movies.
Bad habit alert – during the week hubs and I watch television while we are eating dinner in the living room. I know, I know. But, seriously, the only time we sit at the table is on the weekends when kiddo is here. The tv is off. Lately Mr. Yum and I have been talking about getting a new television for the bedroom. Sometimes you just want to stretch out and watch tv in bed. Problem is, the television that is in there is really old and boxy. While it works fine, I would like to have something flat up against the wall. Poor kiddo has my old tv. I have had for about 18 years now. It works fine for her.
On a recent outing to Best Buy to check out some holiday wish list items, I reluctantly went over to the television section with hubs. I say this because he does tend to talk to the customer service rep forrrr-evvvvv–er. That is when we spotted this beauty.
The LG OLED TV. This television has the clearest picture I have ever seen. It’s even better than the LED we have and I am not a tv person. Ok, wait. I am a tv person, I just dont really care about brands and technology. But, this one just might change my mind.
So what is so special about this OLED TV? Well I am glad you asked! This television is only 0.21″ thick at its thinnest point. LG delivers their exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology for optimal bright and vibrant colors. You want more lifelike, natural looking television? Well you got it. Oh, and did I mention this television is naturally curved for better viewing? I thought you might like that 😉
Check out the LG OLED TV at Best Buy.
Do you love twitter parties? Best Buy is hosting an LG OLED Twitter Party on Thursday December 4th at 7PM CST. Feel free to join this party for a chance to receive Best Buy gift cards and other great prizes.

I will have to mark this. I love twitter parties and have learned and won so much just by doing them.
I am terrible with Twitter parties. I need to get better organized because I always forget about them.
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
My husband and I are totally crushing on that tv. Maybe for Christmas?
I’m thinking someone needs to win the loto! LOL It’s so expensive but I really want a curved tv.
These TVs sound amazing! I totally need some UHDTV in my life!
Liz Mays says
OH believe me, I’ve planted a seed on this one. I’ve also watered it and I’m nurturing it daily. 🙂
Amanda Love says
I’m thinking I need to hint to hubby that we need to get this as well. This would be great for our bedroom.
Lady Lilith says
This looks like such a great product. Best way to watch educational DVD’s I bet.
Everyone wants something from Best Buy for the holidays. It’s one of my favorite places to shop.
When we go we have to carve hours out of our day because hubs will talk to the sales people all day long if you let him.
Sarah Bailey says
What an amazing sounding TV it suprises me how even now things are progressing at such a speed.
I think this is an awesome way to celebrate Christmas. 😉 Maybe my husband will find this on my list. I will mark down the Twitter party on my calendar.
Hinting season is right! Those are some great gift ideas.
Lois Alter Mark says
This TV sounds amazing, and would make the perfect family holiday gift.
Kristen from The Road to Domestication says
We’re in the market for a new TV, but the last one I looked at at Best Buy was $8,000. Um, NOPE.
this is what I need for Christmas! I need one for my family room
we love Best Buy. They are a great place to get gifts!
The LG OLED TV looks really great. I’d like a tv for our bedroom, but not sure if we would use it enough.

I’ve never heard of a Best Buy Twitter party so I’m happy you invited us. And I love the hashtag! #hintingseason = no hunting! yay!
April Decheine says
I love Best Buy, have never bought a TV anywhere else. This is one nice flat screen, we will be shopping for another this holiday season.
OMG I so want a TV like this with those colors.
My husband wants a new tv so bad. Tis the season!
This looks like a really nice tv. I would love to have one we currently have a tv in every single room of the house so I probably couldn’t justify that purchase…lol
Ann Bacciaglia says
I am looking for a new TV and this looks amazing. I will have to check it out in person.
Chrissy Mazzocchi says
I wish we had a Best Buy near us! They have the best products and the customer service is phenomenal!
Melissa Vera says
I am in the market for a new television so I will have to go check these out. I love Best Buy.
Erica Brooks says
Best Buy is our go to source when buying T.V’s. We could use a T.V. in our living room.
There is no hinting going on in my house. My husband has flat-out said he wants one of these TVs. He talks about them every time we go to Best Buy.
I’ve seen that one too. The display is stunning and I’d love to have it!
amanda ripsam says
A Best Buy Twitter Party would be a lot of fun to take part in. My hubby is always in Best Buy and I have my eyes on one of the Hp instant ink printers I would love a invite maybe win a gift card to go toward a new printer.
amanda mcmahon says
I love this spin on words! It sure is hinting season!
