Samsung UN82MU8000 82" 4K UHD LED TV for $2,429 - corp emp discount A/C

This is direct from Samsung.com - not ebay, not joesav or other suspect non-authorized dealers.

I have been looking for a 75"+ TV for a few days and could not bring myself to spend $2800 on Sony XBR75X900E (which I know is a good deal considering previous pricing), or $3,300 for the Samsung UN75MU9000 or $3,500 for the TV posted in the title of this deal.

So I remembered Samsung used to have corporate employee pricing via their site if your company participates. I work for a medium size company in the midwest and somehow my company is eligible although I have no idea what our connection may be to Samsung.

Click here [samsung.com] and enter your name and work email address. It will tell you immediately if you are eligible or not and if you are it will send you an email to activate your employee savings. After you activate savings you need to log out and log back in to see better pricing.

Here are some great prices on large TVs. May be some great deals on smaller ones, but I focused on what I was looking for:

QN75Q7FAM (75" Q7 series) $2,800 ($2,576 after 8% CB)
UN75MU9000 (75" 9k series) $2,640 ($2,429 after 8% CB)
UM82MU8000 (82" 8k series) $2,800 ($2,576 after 8% CB)

Screrenshot of this pricing is attached.

I ended up ordering the 82". I got charged tax in KY, but shipping is free. This unit says backordered and ships in 7-10 business days but I am not in a huge rush.

Also to sweeten this further certain cash back site is advertising 8% cash back for samsung.com, but I haven't yet received notification that it was successful after I clicked through it for my order. If this works it will more than pay for my 6% sales tax.

Good luck!

Update - I got an email confirming 8% in cash back or $224. Making the effective price $2,576!

If you have Discover you can get 10% back, my colleague just confirmed. That would make the final price $2,520 on this specific model, but plenty of other deals available.

UPDATE 12/3 - As others have reported the price on this model just dropped another $160! Since it is backordered, I cancelled my original order which had not shipped yet and placed a new one at the lower price $2,640 - 8% CB = $2,429!

Update - I got the cash back email! $224. So it does work. I am very happy with this deal now.

Or if you have Discover you can get 10% or $280. I don't.

Mine went through too! Great deal!!

I was torn between the MU8000 and the Q7F...decided on the MU8000. Wife decided bigger was better this time lol.
I figured if I really need the better color spectrum I'll go with Sony and their true OLED screen.

You are right, KS was much better. But didn't come in this size. Honestly I spent 2 hours last night going between Sony 75 X900E, Samsung 75 9k Series and this 82 inch monster, couldn't make up my mind. I *hope* the differences in picture quality will be subtle for every day use.

I don't think I would have been happy with any of these as I am coming from a 65" LG OLED which is moving to the basement. And I wanted something large, thus since none of these will be OLED quality, the differences between them may be smaller and thus I went with the largest size.

I also picked up a UHD Blu Ray player for under $100 after cash and tax on this Samsung site.
