Fry's 4K TV's no sales tax with additional promo code discounts, YMMV

-2 Deal Score

Fry's has a weekly ad showing sale prices on TV's along with further discounts if you sign up for a promo code. Along the top banner of the ad states that We Pay Sales Tax with Promo Code on ALL 4K TV's excluding Clearance and Doorbusters.

I visited Fry's to buy a new 4K TV that was listed on last weeks ad. The sales rep stated that the TV I wanted was not included in the no sales tax offer. I noted the ad that said ALL 4K TV's. The store manager agreed and gave the discount but said he believes it is a mis-print and would put a disclaimer up in the store for further sales.

This weeks ad shows the same no tax on ALL 4K TV's with promo code.
If your store will honor the ad then an extra savings can be had. I saved about $40 on top of the TV's promo code discount. YMMV, no tax is not valid in all states.

1. I don't think this is anything new.

2. Managers shot me down instantly when I showed them the Ad and page about no sales tax on all TVs including those with Promo codes.

Hey guys, I argued with the manager until I got what I wanted. This is a Slickdeal!

Instructions to replicate deal:
1. Go in and argue like I did
2. Assume it will go as you want

More illegal bait and switch trash from a completely trash retailer. Nothing to see here folks. Frys = garbage left in the bottom of a dumpster after being emptied

so you have to argue with them just to get them to honor what was printed in their own ad? how are these clowns still in business?

My rant is from this exact topic a couple months ago. The TV I went there to buy was listed on their live website ad that I showed to the manager as tax free. Took a 30 minute stressful argument to get him to honor their own ad. TV ended up being too small for the space, but if the experience hadn't been so bad I may have kept it. It's legitimate bait and switch advertising. That's strictly illegal. Yet they do it all the time. I say avoid this retailer like you would avoid kissing someone with an active herpes flair.

Wow, you guys are tough! Or, you're unwilling to do just a tad of work for a great deal! Took me an entire 1 minute to ask for the manager who took one look at the ad and said ok.

As for Fry's some people love it, some hate it but then that can be said about nearly ANY retailer. Some tell me skip Fry's, go to Best Buy. I've had horrible luck there! For me, I got a great TV at a great price, and I also got a heck of a bargain on a Refrigerator at Fry's recently. I'll take a bargain any day. Who cares where from!!

I actually didn't mind Fry's experience, they come off as shady that is for sure, and I did try to negotiate with them, the store I went to the manager said no way, can't do it.

So YMMV, but this isn't new, which is why its not a good deal.

Seems new at least for my area. I recall an ad several months ago that said no tax on Select TV's and other items, not ALL as it does now. I've also not seen a slick deal post on this other than no tax on specific TV's. There are numerous YMMV slickdeals. For those that can make use of such, it most certainly is a good savings. Best deal I could get on a new TV that fit my needs!

You know what.... its Valentines day.... I won't be such a tight wad.

I will remove my thumbs down because it may not be a hot deal, but at least it was sharing a positive result that you had with something clearly stated on their website.

Edit: Guess I can't remove it.
