Sometimes it seems like retailers will take any occasion to try to create a promotion around. After a two-month long holiday shopping season, the one remaining occasion is the end of the old year and the beginning of the new. It does have a certain psychological impact after all.
Best Buy Co. Inc. (NYSE: BBY) is promoting end-of-2016 pricing on hundreds of items, with the sale pricing ending at midnight Saturday. The offer kicked off on Christmas day and has been running for a week already, but not everyone knows that.
