Samsung 65inch 4K HDTV (65MU8000) for $1000 at Costco +$125 Google Play Credit

Not sure if this is a great deal but was looking for this TV as new 2018 models are out and prices expected to drop.

Currently going for $1000 on Costco.com for members only; combined with their return policy and 2+2 yr warranty (with Costco credit card), this makes a good deal **for me**. Hopefully others can make use of it too.
Additional $125 Google Play Credit

Checked and as of writing not a repost.

The TV has ads? I plead ignorance on this, and now I'm curious. Can you explain?

The OS has ads in it that pop up on the side, and it's pretty ridiculous when you consider that you just dropped over $1,000 on a TV. I was highly pissed to see ads on my then-$2,000 KS9000. Never should I drop two grand and be forced to see idiotic ads.

That being said, with the NU8000 out, you shouldn't be paying more than $700 for this lower level 2017 model.

I think I faintly remember seeing this now. I thought they be turned off when you set up the TV by deselecting one of the T&C options during setup. I have a JS8500 and I bought my brother a KS8000, and I don't think I've seen ads on either. It's probably why I forgot about the ads altogether.

The Samsung 2016 were great TVs and had lots of potential. This, the 2017, and all of Samsung 2017 TVs took a big step backwards in terms of picture quality and panel uniformity. I would stay away from all Samsung 2017 TVs, and wait for the reviews on the 2018 Samsung TVs before buying.

rtings.com has good reviews on just about every 2018 Samsung that I know of.

Please explain the Costco Warranty. I know they offer 2 years for TV's but you get an additional 2 years for using their Credit Card?

You need to pay with the Costco credit card to get the 2+2 years warranty.

that is correct unless a recent change. The 2018 version 65NU8000 is $1280 plus $99 for additional 3 yr square trade. if purchased together they credit $99 so you get a 5 year warranty. no idea what happens if you use their card - maybe 7 yr

Why didn't you just turn them off instead? Seems like it would be much easier than returning.

Bought this TV last December around $1270 + $125play store credit. I already had an issue where Display started to show a white line vertically. Gone through Samsung and CostCo customer service, they replaced the display panel.

Good picture quality and sound until this happened. I know Samsung customer service is bad, but I have dealt with them in past for refrigerator.

This deal is good and TV is good. But not sure how long will it last.
