Hey Folks, TigerDirect has a great price on this bundle.

The price is $499.99, you need to add coupon code: JQK14083. This will make the bundle drop to $229.99 and shipping is $14.14 for me here in So Cal. Here is the link for the LG 32LD550 + LG AN-WF100 Bundle [tigerdirect.com]

*Side Note* TigerDirect charges tax in FL, IL, NC, TX, GA, SD and ID

I posted one last week for $449 - My Original Post

You all can thank the person for calling about the price!!!! #1 rule - NEVER DO THAT!!!!
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

well it makes sense for them to try to get as many ppl to cancel as possible.. then either try to salvage the other ones or just take a loss on maybe less than 50 of these TV's.. at maybe 200 per Tv that's actually probably 10k in losses.. relatively minor considering they probably earn over couple million a year.

Got the email also. Also got an alert from Chase saying an unauthorized transaction of 720$ occured from TD. I flagged it as fraud. They sent me an email saying that I must have known that I used an expired coupon causing the purchase to revert back to $720? Right... I knew that it was a coupon, and that it worked when I applied it, no foul play there.

Chase will be calling me soon, and I will tell them exactly what TD is trying to do, fradulently taking advantage of the fact that they have my credit card information on file and choosing to charge whenever, and whatever they please.

As I mentioned before, the TV was delivered this morning (before receiving any letters from td), and I still have a PayPal pending charge for $284.28. I have canceled all pre-approved payments, and have the paypal number ready in case I have to call and dispute my case.

they got me by the ballz.

out for delivery by 12/10

244 was charged and then credited back today.

new charge for 719 today
These bastards have the balls to charge what they want whenever. That is just not right. You either cancel the orders if you think it was a price mistake or eat it up if your system is not able to catch these errors. This is very unethical way of dealing with a mistake on their end. Goid thing I placed a hold on my cc knowing now how sleazy this company is.

Is there a way to request a hold of charges from a particular company on your CC or is just a general hold on all transactions?

Somebody finds that a coupon code works on an item that it was not supposed to work on, and posts it. Nobody questions where that code came from (because you all knew it was questionable). Now you all get in an uproar when TD sends an email to that effect, and make all this noise like a bunch of damn jailhouse lawyers. Go ahead and dump on me, but I feel there is a difference between fraud and slick dealing.

I believe it is the distrubor's call to request an interception. Tigerdirect has to pay the distributor anyway. There will be more interceptions later.

Is it a questionable coupon or a coupon that didn't expire when it should have? I purchased this exact same set last week at $449 from TD. The sale price was $719 - $270 Coupon = $449 + $14.41 S/H. Very recently, they lowered the price to $499 but the coupon never expired..

Out of curiosity, what was the coupon supposed to work on?

Anyone else check your email messages on the TD site?

the 2nd message (the one about what happened with the coupon) is blank and doesn't include the message for me.

Just another thing to use against them, saying I never got your message about what happened!

I thought the coupon would work on other tvs, tried it on another LG and it didn't work.
