Deal Details

Piggybacking off last year's Samsung thread, I'd like to generate a wiki for the 3 major plasma brands for 2011. Most of the manufacturers place restrictions on pricing and don't allow online retailers to show prices until final checkout. This thread will allow us to weed through those restrictions and find the best current prices.

I am much more informed with pricing on the higher end models for all 3 manufacturers, but admittedly, I could use some help on the lower end.

Any help keeping the wiki current is appreciated. I will do my best with what I have already documented on some of these models, but again, I do not have info on every model.

[QUOTE=ADeal2Remember;40499417]What price @ buy.com did they match against? I request 2057 and got denied due to 3 reasons: Got 3 emails from them - all denying a follows:
1) I'm unable to approve your claim because we do not match the third party listings on other websites. The link you provided shows the TV is on buy.com and sold by 6ave Electronics
2) After reviewing your TV Low Price Guarantee request, I'm unable to approve your claim. When we receive a request to price match a TV offered in a bundle, we take all aspects of the bundle into account. They are not offering the avatar starter kit bundle.
3) If an item is available on Amazon.com as well as one of our competitor's websites, we want you to buy it from us. For 14 days beyond your ship date, we offer a TV Low Price Guarantee with a few restrictions. The terms and conditions for the TV Low Price Guarantee can be found here:

Am I doing something wrong or plain unlucky? They denied me in 3 places Frown

I also did the price of 2057 and I guess its hit or miss.

called to pricematch 65ST30 on buy.com but office was close. next day, price went up and amazon won't do pricematch.

my tv is being shipped and currently in town and schedule for Friday delivery. my american express only show $222.48 charge for bundle kit but no other charges for TV.

when does amazon charge your credit card?
they say when it ships, but it could be a day or 2 after that it seems.

I haven't had a lot of time to update the wiki (and it's only going to get worse over the next 5 days), but I did notice Paul's TV (via Amazon) is selling the 59D7000 for $1861 shipped, a new price low by a lot.

I am flying to Chicago for a wedding starting Thursday and obviously will not have time to update the wiki. I know the Panasonic glasses promo is running through the 25th for most (23rd for some), so feel free to update the wiki to reflect any new changes/promos starting on the 26th.

You only get 1 PM. if you order then call in they can match without using that 1 PM. This is UNTIL the unit is at your doorstep. At least this is how CS explained it to me (which isn't always the most trustworthy)

I penally was able to do this. So at least it worked for me.
Are you saying that if I Pricematched on phone, the "Found a lower price" button will still work one time???


On a side note, my P50ST30 I orderded Saturday, shipped to carrier today being delviered Thursday. Just got shipping confirm that the bundle arrives Friday.... only day later..... moral of the story... never worry about amazon shipping estimates or out of stock warnings. good night all!

The 59d7000 is now 1785.99 at pauls tv! I called in to get it pmed to my original purchase, which shipped today. They said their tv dept is closed and they can't pm during off hours. However, they said they would email the tv dept about the inquiry....hope it goes through! 1786 is a hella price for the 59d7000 with bluray player and starter kit. That's all before the 20% kindle coupon! =x

Hi Lavision,

I am also looking for a 55st30 on Amazon. What price are you matching this to?

I too tried to reach them last night, but couldn't get the right number. I tried sending an email but got an auto-response saying my email will be forwarded to the correct group. Let me know if you have better luck than me. Thanks.

PS: this is my first post here. So, hello to everyone!

I'm trying to follow all of this PM discussion, but it's still pretty confusing. Do you mean that we can get Amazon to match this new Paul's TV price, plus throw in the BD Player/Starter Kit bundle?

I got denied since pauls tv took down their listing. Also tried to pm to buy.com, but they said they don't pm to other websites. Guess well have to wait for pauls tv or another amazon seller to drop its price to pm.

They definitely PM other websites. There's a list of 20+ online websites that fall under their "TV Low Price Guarantee".

They definitely do, but they have to offer the same deals/bundles/etc that you got on your original offer. I got shot down for a 6ave price match that didnt bundle anything, despite it having a lower starting price. I did get an adjustment when Amazon's own price lowered $100 or so this morning on my TV. 5 minutes afterwards I got the adjustment.
