TCL 65S405 65” 4K TV $547 at Target YMMV

Bear with me on me this one it will take some stacking and it requires that you got one of the 20% off coupons from Black Friday. So YMMV but I've been waiting for a good deal to use this coupon for.

https://www.target.com/p/tcl-65-4...A-50939781

Today you can purchase $600 in Target gift cards for 10% off https://www.target.com/c/target-g...bspnbspnbs this will require 2 transactions of $300 each on different accounts/cards since the deal caps out at $300.

Now add the TCL 65S405 to your cart online. Add your 20% off coupon from Black Friday and check out with your gift cards and your red card for the remainder of the balance. I haven't done this yet this year but in past years as long as you have your red card on your account you get 5% off the entire purchase even if only part of it is being paid for with the red card. This brings down your total out of pocket to $547.99 + tax

Good luck I'll be able to test this out starting tomorrow since the gift cards are not redeemable till 12/4

UPDATE: someone pointed out in the comments that you can no longer get 5% off your entire purchase when only a portion of it is on the red card so it looks like this deal is slightly less slick and only gets you down to 579.99 + tax still a pretty good price IMHO

$600 in gift cards after 10% discount = $540

Price of TV $799 minus 20% discount = $640 -5% redcard = $608

That's not including tax. Not sure how you are getting to $547.

Original price $799

Discount of $192 for 20% BF + 5% Red card = $608 as you said

But if you bought $600 of gift cards for $540 then you are paying $540 + 8 = $548 out of pocket (I did accidentally drop the .99 my bad)

I figured this would get thumbed down, but for anyone hanging on to one of these coupons and a red card it could be a pretty good deal.

I thought it was pretty obvious.

Bought this TV for my father in law. Very solid for the price.

Still not accurate

You only save 5% with the red card on how much is charged to the card (e.g. $100 save $5). If you spend $600 worth on gift cards, and charge $8 with your red card, you only save 5% on the $8.

Yep, I called that out in the post as a possibility. Last year I did the 10% off gift card deal and as long as I purchased online I got 5% off my entire order even if the bulk of the purchase was on a gift card. But maybe they have fixed that loophole

It use to take 5% off the entire purchase, but i think it got killed off last year.

very happy when amazon PM Target deal, free shipping $314 and tax for TCL 55S After some calibration it holds up well next to my Vizio P50 now. Was an impulse buy and back up plan in case the TCL P series didn't go on sale. Went with Plan B, the P607 won't be on sale till next BF it seems.

I'm really hoping they improve on the 607/5 next year. Love it but wanted a 65 of it. Might grab this in a few months or if I can get them to pm walmart's 699 I'll probably grab this coming week.
