Deal Details

Last Edited by triwood June 14, 2011 at 01:45 PM
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.

did you inspect the tv using flash light and have them wait? wow, I thought the free ship service from amazon is to deliver to the door only. did you have the regular free ship service or white glove?

interesting thing is that my Ship Carrier is USPS. I did not know that US postal office does big item delivery.
No I didn't use a flash light. They set everything up. They moved my old 42 inch plasma and put the new one on the TV stand and hooked up all the cables that were originally on the 42 inch. I powered it up and let the TV run for a while. Nothing seemed cracked and all the pixels seemed fine so they left afterwards.

My TV shipped using Pilot Freight Services. I don't think it's white glove delivery. I just choose the standard free shipping they offered.

Really? You got the 65 inch right? I did too (good thing because the price is jacked up by $400 now), and mine is shipping via Pilot. I have heard different stories about Pilot. Some good, some bad. It seems it depends on your delivery guy(s).

Yeah, I've heard bad stories about them. The status of my TV was actually unknown until the day of the delivery. They said they have no idea where the TV was so they could not guarantee the schedule delivery. But then Friday morning came without any call or warning they showed up at my door step.

Damn.... p50st30 fell another $30 from Pauls to $999 by far the lowest price Ive seen.

Should I try another price match for $30? I know Amazon only allows one but its the same day and the tv has not shipped yet and my credit card has not even been charged!

By the way - if you do what I did, get the 50ST30 from Amazon with $150 gift card and bundle, then try to PM to Pauls through Amazon - that is a slick deal!!! $850 shipped (net of gift catrd)! No Kindle coupon needed.

Just noticed update to wiki for $995 from Video & Audio Center - Triwood you are fast (or whomever updated the wiki)

since the tv is huge, can I ask the delivery guys to help open the box so that I can check it?

yes all 3 of us got the 65 incher. Our timing was just right. Usually the delivery guys wait until
the TV works right. Not sure how usps delivery will work. First time I'm hearing about USPS delivery. Can you have a friend as a back up to help you?

is the $999 ST50 still eligible for the $150 GC / Avatar 3D kit, even though it is Sold by Paul's TV and Fulfilled by Amazon? I thought it had to be purchased from Amazon directly to be eligible?

Can someone confirm this (preferably with a link)? thanks

I bought it this afternoon directly from Amazon and had them price match me to Pauls at $1030 before it fell to $999. I think you only get giftcard if you buy direct from Amazon, Debating if it is still worth it to try and see if they will adjust the pm, there terms say only once but since the tv hasnt even shipped my cc has not been charged yet.

6ave has it for $972 now. I placed an order this afternoon as well but the large items dept. was closed for the day. I have sent them an email and will call tomorrow. Hoping I can get a price match. If not, it will go back.
