Authorized by who? Their recent reviews on reseller ratings are all 5 stars?

...Buydig, who has the current "cream of the crop" 50 point FP deal which is $400 more without the mount, is also not an "authorized dealer"

thanks for the thumbs down and thread crapping using a five year old youtube video though, definitely good to know that despite a very high rating with thousands of reviews someone was mad at them in 2011.

Buydig is a trusted website among slickdeals.

stop being a whiny btch because you think i ruined a good Rep deal for yourself.

this website among others on google are full of scams and if you look at the comments in that video they have recent posts about them doing the same shit. learn to do Research before you try to let members get scammed

even current yelp reviews among other sites

Good to know. I still think the other guy is overreacting though - about one of every one hundred reviews complains that they tried to upsell people on shipping and he's talking about it like they'll steal your identity, punch your grandma and make fun of your dead childhood pets.

if you did any research you wouldn't have posted the deal at all or tried defending it. don't try to save face now.

they are known for bait and switch among other websites.

you've been here since 2007 and you don't know how to google the store your promoting for sales. if its not a big name your supposed to check it for scams

I'm not saving face, you're just a troll. I bought this TV for hundreds of dollars less than the current front page deal and those of a like mindset (i.e. those that think the cash is worth the risk of maybe having to call AmEx to dispute a charge later) will appreciate the post. As I said, 99 of every 100 reviews are positive and the negative ones range from standard "shitty tv" to "someone tried to upsell me on shipping." It's not credit card theft etc.

Get a life.

Bait and switch is literally a scam. The word Scam does not literally have one meaning as in Card theft or identity theft which you seem to believe.

why dont you post more of these amazing deals. im sure my post about this amazing deal is hindering your 500+ Reps right?

this deal should be at 499TU and my TD right?

not to mention go look up what a Troll is. because trying to make sure our members are not scammed because you cant google a damned thing and then defend it, is not trolling

A quick google search and the top three listings are enough to give me pause.

One should always do their research but for a high cost item such as this, I'm more than likely sticking with vendors I am much more sure I can trust.

At least for them on SD, they aren't a urlhasbeenblocked...as of yet at least.
