Staples is offering this headset with an upfront cost of $15 and a mail-in rebate of $10. This is a great deal if you need a new headset, but don't buy it unless you're buying over $50 worth of goods from Staples--shipping alone on this headset is $10. If you're a regular Staples shopper, today's a good day to include this headset with your next order.

Specs: 46-inch 3D HDTV, 240Hz refresh rate, 4 HDMI, 1 USB, 1 RF, Ethernet port

You will also get two Blu-ray 3D movies--Bolt 3D and Michael Jackson's This Is It.
