Deal DetailsLast Edited by ThatGuitarGuy June 14, 2016 at 09:16 AM
I have been watching this bad boy for awhile, and the 50 inch has finally dropped in price by $100. Probably for memorial day weekend, but I'm not sure.
If you go to the Vizio website and sign up for their email list, they will mail you a 5% off coupon. I just bought this model from my local Best Buy, and they took 5% off because I had that coupon from Vizio. YMMV.
Here is how the price played out for me: $899.99 - $45 (5%) +$5 CA Recycle fee + $68.40 (8% tax) = $928.39 out the door. The price just dropped another $100, so I they refunded me $108 (kept the $45 discount). End cost was $820.39 out the door.
