Today, nine happy people have upgraded their home entertainment systems for the low price of 99 cents. To celebrate the opening of a new 99 Cent Only Store in Orange, the company sold nine 22-inch flatscreen TVs for just under a dollar to the first nine people in line.

But if you missed your chance, don't feel too bad -- the OC Register reports that some television lovers were in line as early as Tuesday to cash in on the outstanding deal.

Don't forget that these shoppers braved unseasonably low temperatures in order to score on the otherwise $250 Phillips LCD TV.

Elizabeth Plascencia, 37, of Corona told the Register that, "Tuesday night was OK, but last night was really cold. The chill factor really got to me."
