Fry's LG OLED65B7A $1799 + tax (YMMV?)

[UPDATE: Apparently not coupled after all. Returned the warranty, making just the TV $1799 +tax]

After shopping for months, finally got spousal approval to pull the trigger on this model. Put in a 3-day bid of $1800 on Greentoe Friday evening, and immediately got the $2099 counter-offer. Spent yesterday scouting around trying to better it, and this afternoon – after failing to get the nearby Best Buy to budge a penny off the new MSRP – I ventured out to the southwest Houston Fry's to see if they could do any good. They've got it for $2296.99, but the code (my salesman, Cordell, said it was the equivalent of my emailed code, hence the YMMV?) gave $497.99 off (to $1799) with the purchase of Fry's 2-year warranty for $289.99, for a grand total of $2088.99 + tax. Despite the tax difference (and the currently limited PP amount), decided that the bird-in-the-hand was worth it, and so am finally replacing the the 52" Sharp AQUOS that I purchased thanks to the Friends & Family code @jameswalter gave me ten years ago.

Thank you to all who have contributed in the several threads the past few months.

Congrats. Just curious, did the salesman require you to purchase the extended warranty or was that something you wanted?

Can you return the warranty? Wonder if it was technically required or just the sales guy pushing it

That's why I'm asking as well. I would try to return the warranty to make the deal even better if OP knows he'll never use it. I know sales people there have their own separate "secret" promo codes (that are not in their ads) that they may use to push some sales depending on the item.

He told me the warranty was required to get the discount. Didn't budge at all on that point (spent about two hours in the store). Never thought of attempting to return just the warranty.

Understandable. I would go back within their 30 day return window to return the warranty(otherwise it's prorated). I've never seen a sale at Fry's require someone to buy a warranty in order to receive a discounted price. askmehowiknow

Is this how? From their service contract policy (found at https://images.frys.com/art/psc/0...itions.pdf ):
Quote :
18. Cancellation of Contract –The Buyer may cancel this agreement for any reason at any time by contacting the Administrator. Within thirty (30) days after the date of receipt of this Contract, the Buyer may cancel the Contract and receive a refund of the full amount paid if the Buyer provides a written notice of cancellation and the original Contract and original purchase receipt to the Administrator, provided that no claim has been made against the Contract during the thirty (30) day period. If a claim has been made during the thirty (30) day period or if the Buyer cancels this Contract more than thirty (30) days after the date of receipt of this Contract, the Buyer shall receive a pro-rata refund based on the time expired less a $25.00 cancellation fee, or ten percent (10%) of the purchase price (whichever is less). Fry's may not cancel this Contract except for fraud, material misrepresentation or non-payment by the Buyer; or if required to do so by a regulatory authority. Notice of such cancellation will be in writing and given at least thirty (30) days prior to cancellation. If Fry's cancels, the return premium is based upon one-hundred percent (100%) of the unearned pro-rata premium.

Some credit cards now include a 2-YEAR warranty above the manufacturer's warranty. I just used that feature to pay me in full for two out-of-manufacturer's-warranty FitBits that failed for different reasons. Cash in hand.

BTW, Fitbit's build quality is crap.
BTW #2 Nice buy, my friend.

I thought the Greentoe price included tax and shipping? So assuming you didnt actually want the warranty that's still the better deal right?

May I know if you could apply price protection on your Greentoe order?
