The website says free shipping..however the price is different than the link to the print ad I posted above

Prices stated above are for instore pickup only, online says $799 and $1297 with free shipping.

FYI... No sales tax applies to 4K TVs only, not regular one's.

that was my point in the original post

If you call and order and say you have the ad you "might" be able to take the free shipping

sales tax would not apply in a state that does not have a Frys..if the product was delivered on any TV

a 4K TV would be exempt from tax on even an in store purchase

Just got the 60" for $599.00 after calling customer service. I was just going to cancel my order, but the girl said "No the price is actually $599.00 and we're working on adjusting that, but I can fix it for you." So of course I said yes. Big Grin

What's the best way to get warranty for this item? Squaretrade won't honor refurbished items.

Not a bad price, but I'd be a bit concerned about the 70" model as a refurb, they are known to have an issue which causes bright spots all over the tv, and which gets worse over time. It's commonly discussed on avsforum, and I can say I have a tv with just that issue. It's getting replaced, but no guarantee it won't have the same issues, and I am willing to bet most of the refurb tvs are these defective tvs. Since they can't repair the panel, they likely just send it through a basic inspection and call it good. If someone inspected my tv quickly, they wouldn't notice anything wrong with it, it's only with a careful eye on the right screen or background that you can see the issue.

I got the 60" TV on Pre-Black Friday at Sam's Club a couple of years ago. Overall the TV is great for the living room. I tuned it with settings from AVSforum.com

The VIA interface feels a little cumbersome to me, but I can still stream Pandora, Netflix, and Hulu through it no problem. Have a WD TV Live to play all my videos.

I did encounter an issue about 5 months in where the picture went out due to a chip. It was a known issue, and they sent some guys with a new one, hooked it up, and hauled away the bad one. No problems over 1 year later.

Read more about the issue here: https://answers.vizio.com/hc/en-u...l-bulletin

It only affected some serial numbers, so if yours isn't listed, you should be in the clear.

good deal
I suspected that you could call their customer service and get the same price ...and shipped

If you bought it with an Amex..or certain other cards they will double the manufacturer warranty...Visa Signature cards will double as well
You can also typically buy additional coverage cheaply through your CC company as well

I would suspect they replace the panel...based on the condition you described, and then resell it as a refurb

If it wasn't for the fact that the issue is hard to notice depending on how they test the panels, the fact that tons of people have reported replacement tvs having the exact same issue, and the fact that it gets worse and more noticeable over time, I'd say go for it.

The 60" panels don't have that issue reported, but the 70" ones do, and it is quite common.

can you clarify on how one may buy additional coverage through CC company? by calling CC customer service?

I just called customer service. They advised there was no shipping these TV's and they must be picked up in store.
