Would these rebates work if I bought it through Amazon instead of Tiger Direct?
Nope, not by any means! The invoice required as part of the MIR documentation should be from TigerDirect (or one of the other affiliated authorized resellers) and that way your rebate (all 3 in this case) would be rejected.
Did you try circuitcity.com or compusa.com to avoid sales tax in your state? The rebates are valid for these resellers as well.
That no longer works. As of today (12/30/2012) both circuitcity.com & compusa.com have officially been merged to tigerdirect.com.
I'm in NC & I used circuitcity whenever possible because of the no tax.
People can go to circuitcity.com &/or compusa.com to have their account history from those websites merged to tigerdirect.com.
The 60'' version of this TV is on sale at Fry's for 599 bucks. For these kind of TVs, I highly suggest you buy from a brick and mortar store just in case you can return since TigerDirect return policy for large screen TV is very poor.
My TCL product experience: I bought a 40" LED TCL TV on black friday for $150 AR. It's a piece of junk.
I wouldn't rate it even 1/10th the quality as my Sharp or Sony televisions. I will even say the Best Buy brand TVs are of much higher quality then TCL. The first TCL TV i received was defective, had to wait a month for a replacement. The second has 2 stuck pixels. Even though it's LED it is still much thicker then most TN panel TVs. The TV cannot be recognized by a computer connected via HDMI unless it is powered on (which is very unusual). This presents issues with multi-monitor configurations. The audio quality is bottom of the line. It's loud, but sounds about the same quality as a cheap netbook. The remote control button locations make no sense and result in changing inputs or color configuration by accident. Anything below 75% backlight illumination causes me eyestrain and a headache. The automatic backlight adjustment doesn't work correctly and sometimes results in a dim screen in a well lit room or full brightness in pitch black room.
After 2 weeks use I have demoted this TV to be used in my home gym, so it won't see any use
