Whether in-store or online, big or small, OLED or LCD — TV pricing follows an annual cycle.


Geoffrey Morrison/CNET

Like clockwork, the prices on televisions follow a regular annual cycle. Knowing when prices will fall could save you some money or at least some pricing anxiety. Here’s the cycle in a nutshell: CES, Super Bowl, spring shipments, minor summer price drops, fall/Black Friday/holiday major price drops.

New TVs are announced at CES in January. They’re not available then, however. There are often sales in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl in February, but they’re on the previous year’s

A Wedding Date They’ll Remember. No Joke.

She and her fiancé, John Porter, wanted to be married April 1, but because of Covid regulations, their options seemed limited to eloping at a courthouse near their home in Munster, Ind. “The girls I work with started talking, and they were like, ‘No! You can’t have family at the courthouse,’” Ms. Kitzmiller said.

Kara Kawanna, who works in billing at the dealership, was particularly opposed. “We knew Carla would want her mom to be there,” she

Written by Yaling Jiang, CNNShanghai, China

At a Shanghai art museum built from converted oil tanks, an eclectically dressed crowd chattered excitedly and lamented the long wait for a showcase by Chinese fashion label, Private Policy. But attendees’ impatience quickly dissipated as they were admitted to the venue and the brand sent its latest creations down a pink catwalk bathed in artificial fog.

This Is Officially the New “Everyday” Jewelry Look of 2021

Call me a pessimist, but I truly never thought the day would come when delicate gold layering jewelry would meet its match. For years now, simple stacking rings, tamely layered tiny gold chains, and average-size hoops have been the go-to jewelry assortment of fashion girls everywhere. Even the recent(ish) introduction of heavier chains felt like a daunting departure from the minimalistic look we were all so accustomed to, so you better believe we were floored once colorful, chunky, loud, statement-making pieces emerged as the new everyday jewelry trend in 2021. 

Brands like Roxanne Assoulin, Éliou, and La Manso really led
