Most of you are aware that on February 17, 2009, the switch is coming for all digital reception. When this happens those who receive their TV over the air will need a new box in oder to continue to use their older sets. You may also know that the government is giving away $40 off coupons [2 per family] to help off set the cost of the new boxes.

But what you may not know is that the $40 off coupons are only good for 90 days. On the government site it states:

Coupons expire 90 days after they are mailed. Each coupon has an expiration date printed on it.

As more companies gear up to produce the new boxes, there may be some great deals before the change over date. Because of this you may wish to wait until closer to the change over date to make your purchase using the $40 coupons.

Just a thought.

Hope this helps.
