Costco customer appreciation / friends and family night, run out now to get great deals on returned TVs. All include the square trade warranty in price!

LG OLED55B7 for $885 open box
Samsung UN55MU800D $520 open box
Samsung UN65MU800D $720 open box
TCL 43S403 $195 open box

Costco doesn't put anything on the floor that doesn't work. These are the deals I found in Ohio.

I did not see any at my Costco earlier this evening. Costco has never done this before but its great if they are doing this nationally. A year or so ago, I asked a manager what they do with returned TV and she said typically they send returned tv's to 3rd party liquidation companies even if there is nothing wrong with the set. It would be great if they decided to offer the returned sets to members as opposed to resellers.

That's a pretty innovative idea by that store manager. I know in the Bay Area at least one (and maybe two) stores deal with open box TVs (returns). Daly City is an example of a warehouse store that offers open box TVs. I've always thought because the particular customers there do a high level of returns? I usually see the returned TVs on one of those orange flat carts near the optometry side of the TV department. Sometimes prices will be printed or handwritten--or there'll be nothing, and then a red vest will have to come up with the price. After talking with the red vests in various TV departments, the choice to sell open boxes is store manager dependent. Some stores just don't want to hassle with marking down the price and then tracking down an errand remote or cord. I'm assuming that Ohio Costco Manager is a go-getter. Or maybe test piloting a program with corporate's consent? I'm not sure, but I think it's no skin off of Costco's back--as they just return any recent customer returns to the manufacturer who swallow the cost. But maybe there is an incentive for the Ohio store? like hitting some quota or goal?

Inclusion of a square trade warranty--given the 90 day return window--sounds like those TVs are priced to go! Original poster--please feel free to ask the manager or red vests there how/why that came about there. Smilie

This is very interesting. I thought costco just returns the product back to manufacturer when they recieves a return from their customer.
