Rakuten has the LG 55inch C8 for $1299 minus the $207 worth of Rakuten points you get back for a future purchase. This is an average deal, a lil slick but not dripping wet slick, but slick none the less.

Good through today 8/15 11:59pm

Hard pass, has been under $1k multiple times, and that's not even considering the fact that you are valuing Rakuten points same as cash for your deal

Points do not equal cash. TD for fail-posting.

Says right in the title $207 worth of Rakuten points, do they not teach reading comprehension anymore in school?

Don't know how I could be more clear in the title, and show me any past deal where this tv has been sub $1k brand new in stock or without having to drive across country to a specific store for a managers special

Ask, and you shall receive. Here are a few:

Even the E8 (Step up from the C8) has been $1k or less:

Obviously they USED to teach reading and comprehension.

See that big ol' $1,092.00 at the top of the page? That isn't the price. The price is $1299.00

For reading comprehension: points do NOT equal cash. You should read how to post on SD (a few times just to be sure.)

See how that works?

I remember these deals clearly, been searching for a C8 to go on sale for months and all these deals the coupon disappeared within minutes or just read out of stock suggesting not many tv's were available at the discount. A tactic these websites use to get more traffic to their web store. Listen, I'm not arguing that it hasn't been seen for a better deal, I'm saying ALOT of luck has got to be on your side to snag one for those prices. $1299 and $200 back in rewards is, as I stated in description, an average deal. Even better for the buyer if also in the market for something to go with the tv (bluray player) that the rewards will take care of making this deal not far from those you shared, difference is availability

That's simply not true, these deals were available for days at a time, and plenty of SDers got in on them. In fact, some of these deals were recurring, coming back the following week after initially posted.
