Deals of the Week (April 4): Deals and Taxes

By on April 4, 2014

famous-bens-ben-burttThis week at Ben’s Bargains, Black Friday arrived early in the form of annual “Spring Black Friday” sales at big box stores Home Depot and Lowe’s. It’s a good time for you DIYers because a bevy of home and garden deals have also popped up elsewhere (Ace Hardware, Sears, Amazon) to coincide with the good weather.

In tech news, Amazon released its own set-top media box, the $99 Amazon Fire TV, to compete with big-hitters like the Google Chromecast ($35), Roku 3 ($100) and Apple TV ($99). Watch for the release of the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 next week.

Have that credit card handy because the following deals won’t last much longer!

Here are the current hottest deals of the week on Ben’s Bargains, organized by category (prices include shipping):
