I Went to the store today to pick up the 47" and was going to make a big deal about my brochure saying its $999 but turns out the 47" is $899 and the 55" is $1,299. The 55" came out to ~$1,400 after taxes.
Microcenter does not have this tv online so it is in store only deal.

Reason: Posted a receipt for PM
You should list some model numbers. It would make it easier to look up, also anyone who has a deal alert set for that specific model would get notified.
The link to BB is not the Google TV model but does have full web browser which includes Google (of course). LG's Google TV is the G2 series which includes the 47G2 and 55 G2 and according to Amazon is a mid-line TV. The BB link for the 55LM7600 is a much better TV (Someone please post a deal for that one under $1400 and I will buy, was currently $1450)
The chances of PM are pretty slim because Microcenter model number is 55LMG620, but elsewhere it's 55g2. The LG rep I spoke with, say that's it's the same TV. Apparently it works the same way as Costco products always have a slightly different model number, to prevent PMing.
I don't know why this is not a slickdeal. I went to microcenter yesterday in New Jersey and they had the 47G2 for 879.99 +tax and the 55G2 for 1299.99 + tax. Those are the models listed on the boxes. They also included the 6 pairs of 3D glasses. When i did a google search the 47inch goes for $1200 and the 55inch goes for $1700. I picked up the 55 inch
I broke down and just drove there, abandoning PM or cashback hopes. Microcenter sucks at selling TVs. Here's what happened:
A saleswoman tells me they don't have 55g2 on display;
just telling me it's similar to the 47g2 they had on display;
I ask her to see the box so I can get some information
and also measure the box to see if it'd fit in the car -
she won't even show me the box;
she won't get the remote for me (heck, even Costco lets me try the remote)
she prints out information on a wrong TV and insists it's the right one;
tells me rear-lit LED is the same as non-LED TV;
when I ask her for passive glasses, she won't give me one;
when I ask someone else for glasses, he finds a pair (yay!)
but tells me they won't do anything unless I have special 3D content (wrong)
nobody would find me a tape measure.
What they should have done is put one on display, have a pair of glasses and the remote in the desk drawer, teach the salespeople the 101 of TV so they can tell edge-lit from rear-lit. And please, make some effort for potential buyers, when they ask for a tape measure or to see the box try to accommodate small requests. I am not buying a mousepad, I am about to shell out $1300, which probably means a couple hundred bucks profit for them.
Fortunately for them, I decided to buy one anyway. Took it out of the box and put in the back of my Camry. Skipped most of the setup (I don't care that much about smart capabilities because I have a TiVo) and just hooked it up. I don't know why Cnet gave it a poor review; but picture is stunning. Even non-HD content looks crisp and vibrant. Granted, I am comparing it to my 6-year old 40-inch Sony LCD, but that Sony is not a bad TV at all. 3D is great when the camera is moving (the commercials look great!)
After a few hours of use I know that I would give it at least 4 stars, and likely 5 stars.

OP, please update the title: it's now $799/$1149. I price matched yesterday and got $150 back. PMing was easy - no questions asked whatsoever. I remember my last few PMs at WorstBuy - it was a PITA because they kept making up excuses (like claiming that stores 15 miles apart are not in the same market).
About the TV itself: we love it. I think the picture is great, and sharpness is amazing.
