Wow, the TV deals are coming fast and furious all of a sudden. Last week I showed you a 31.5-incher for $209, and today there's something bigger and better.

For newsletter subscribers only (as always, it's free to sign up), Newegg has the Auria EQ4088p 40-inch LCD HDTV for $379.99 shipped. That's after applying coupon code EMCKEKG54 at checkout.

It wasn't very long ago that a refurbished 32-inch HDTV for $399 was a killer deal. The Auria is new, so you get the manufacturer's full one-year warranty. Oh, and a substantially larger screen.

I'll admit I'm not familiar with the brand, but the specs are about what you'd expect for a lower-end TV: 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution, three HDMI inputs, a built-in ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuner, and a bunch of scaling/filtering features I don't pretend to understand.

I'm guessing this is a fairly new model, or at least new to Newegg, as there are no user reviews at the moment--and I couldn't find any mention of this TV anywhere else. So it's a bit of a gamble, I suppose--but that's part of being a cheapskate, right?

And make no mistake: a new 40-inch HDTV for $380 out the door--no rebates or anything--is a red-hot smokin' killer deal. Makes me wish I was in the market for one!

Bonus deal: Get 15 percent off pretty much anything in the Kodak store with coupon code LUV4MOM. Best bets: one of the awesome Kodak Pulse digital photo frames, or the new EasyShare Touch digital camera. I'm a huge fan of the former and a new fan of the latter (which I'm in the process of reviewing). Both are can't-miss Mother's Day gifts!
