It depends on what you're looking for. I started the Samsung plasma price tracking thread last year and was watching prices closely for nearly the whole year. Random models would go on sale randomly. No 50% off type stuff, but you might save yourself a few hundred more if you get lucky and a model you'd be happy with comes up for sale. Or you may end up like me and waiting forever because your targets never go on sale... I finally pulled the trigger on an open box. It arrived cracked, so then it got replaced with a brand new one.
i m looking at the vt30 model.. where did u find the open box item?/?i have epp account andits showing up as 1857 after tax with no avatar bundle.. but amazon is selling for 1998 with avatar.. i guess it makes sense to go with it..
also us appliance has the same for 1870ish with avatar.and white glove delivrey so thats cool too.. just waiting to see if the price drops.. since my original purchase i burnt my hands big..
