Deal Details

Price is $549 at Sears.com

Price is $499 at Kmart.com

If you purchased through Kmart you should take a screenshot of the Kmart 100000 in SYWR Points Image ASAP as you may need it to argue for your Points.
FYI: Most Kmart buyers are now getting a total of 105000 SYWR Points which = $105
Kmart buyers are getting the 5000 points rather quickly. Kmart buyers are having to call to get the 100000 points added but they have been told that they are eligible. The additional 10K SYWR points promo expired 12/24/2012
LG 50" Plasma HDTV 50PA5500 $549 and $105 back in SYWR Points @ Sears.com

There are also several other TVs available with the $100 back in SYWR Points

The 60" version is also worth mentioning as it comes out $799.99 - ($108 in SYWR) - ($120 in Discover CB) = $571.99 through Sears.com. It appears that the 60" is not available at Kmart

What would make this an even better deal is if you combine it with all the current Discover Card Cash Back Promotions which may include 10% Cash Back through the shopdiscover, 5% through their department store/online Cash Back promo, and their 2% Cashback Promo for purchases made on Dec 22nd (the 2% promo is now Expired). I do not know for certain rather the 17% in cashback Discover promotions will all stack.
If the 17% Discover Cash Back offers stack that would be another $93.50 cash back on the $549.99 price.
$549.99 - ($105 in SYWR) - ($82.50 in 15%Discover CB)= $362.49

This is my 1st post so be gentle.
Mods please update as necessary.
Update:
The $499 price for K-Mart shows up at final Checkout. Pick up in store to avoid shipping charges.
$499.99 - ($105 in SYWR) - ($75 in 15% Discover CB)= $319.99!!!!!!!!!
Unfortunatley there are no K-Marts around me so I went the Sears route.

My SYWR points have already posted to my account.

Another Update:
You actually get 100,000 on top of the points you see in your cart. For example at check out thru Sears.com for the 50" you'll only see 5,500. You wll actually get 105,500 points total which = $105.50
So for Kmart you should get 105,000 in SYWR Points total which = $105. Apparently through is also in addtional 10000 points promo (which expired 12/24/2012) available for Kmart Buyers so total points are 115000 which = $115

This deal just keeps getting better and better.
Another Update:
The 2% Discover Cash Back for purchases made on the 22nd cannot be used anymore. So it is now a potential 15% in Discover Cashback

I didn't buy the tv in this deal, but I bought a ton of stuff from dozens of different discover cashback partners and got zippo. No emails, no cash back. Doesn't even say much about it on my statements, just in the totals section...no transactions.

Of course, every deal involved the use of a coupon, which is supposed to invalidate the cash back, but this would be the very first time any CC company actually enforced that.

My discover card is in little pieces in the garbage can. I'll take the lesser cash back sites and credit card cash back that I'll actually receive.

I GOT THE DISCOVER CASHBACK FOR THIS TV,

I also thought I often didn't get the shopdiscover cashback but printed out my last 6 months of statements online and as far as I can tell I did get everything but 3 purchases. The problem was the cashback often doesn't show for a month or two so you really have to keep a list and then check every few months. They do list on your online statement exactly how much cashback you've earned for which purchase in a little window.

I called to complain about not getting the TV credit and my 3 other missing transactions on the 15th. Two of them they credited on the spot. The other two they (including the TV) were much more recent and they saiid they would open an investigation but it looked like nothing was in process for it. I called back yesterday and said I never heard anything back and they issued me the credit over the phone for my last two missing cashbacks. This included the 10% on the TV.

Also, I've never lost out on a cashback because of a coupon being used. I even used a $50 off $400 coupon when buying this TV.

I've also never not gotten my cashback when using a coupon. How would discover know anyways is discover really sent detailed info from merchants? Another thing is that it appears that for all the other Discover Cashback Promos besides ShopDiscover it appears that the entire value charged including tax is included in calculations for cashback.

still no Cashback.

I might do a return/ rebuy to use a 15% pt.s promo coupon I received till 3/9. Hopefully the price is the same?

Received a secure message from Discover that they were denying the cashback through Kmart because the sale was credited to another publisher (they didn't say who, but I'm betting SWYR, since I had to call for the bonus points). I've sent them a message inquiring how to appeal the determination.

did a return/ rebuy 3/9/2013 Kmart - Earn 15% in points with coupon 69300=$69.30

Credited back to my debit, so maybe i'll still get the Disc. 10%. Sounds like they're declining shopdiscover thru secure message?better luck calling?

Also any cheaper prices on this lately than Best Buy, has it for $52 cheaper.

Finally got the cashback. Had to open a case and I got an email the other day saying that it'll post on my next statement.

All said and done, deal was a pain in the ass, but I really do like the TV and think I got a pretty good deal on it. Good luck to all the others in getting the cashback.

After intially being denied upon my first review, my continued complaints were eventually rewarded with the $50 Everywhere bonus. ShopDiscover has been one of the worst referral sites I've had to deal with. Thanks to the OP for a cheap TV though!!!
