So LG website says to avoid Fivestarbuy.com for warranty purposes. So there is a risk purchasing this TV that if it is defective in any way there is no coverage other than the 2 year Square Trade for $75?

There has been numerous discussions on this topic. Just go to previous LG C9 posts in slickdeals to get more info

I bought my C9 from firstclasstv. No problem registering my TV on LG site.

Instead of buying 2 years from squaretrade, I bought mine with a credit card that carries an extra yr of warranty. I also bought a 4 yr sqauretrade warranty from eBay for $169

Thus, in a worst case scenario my TV breaks in first year, I will first try to submit my claim to LG. If they reject (highly unlikely because their warranty agreement comes with the TV never mentions "authorized dealer"), I can wait until the full year is over then either go to my credit card or squaretrade for repair or replace.

Either way, I still come out ahead.

The retail price for C9 is $2500 today. Costco lowers the price to $2300 in BF with 5 year warranty. Total is $2530 including tax

I paid $1700 + $170 sqauretrade + 5% cash back from my credit card. No tax for me. Total is $1776.

I saved over $750.

Btw, none of these warranty including LG's warranty covers burn in. To get burn in protection, u have to buy it from Best Buy

No, there is not.

You can tell by reading the actual warranty instead of scare language on a website that carries no legal authority whatsoever.

Same deal was available from buydig (authorized) but you had to pay sales tax. I think it is safer to buy from an authorized dealer than risk having to sue LG to enforce a warranty claim. I chuckle at the frugal people who buy from gray market seller, but then think they can demand warranty service. How much would it cost to sue LG? LOL.

It'd cost $0.00

Since they never deny warranty for this reason (the occasional first-post-ever-with-no-evidence guy who claims otherwise notwithstanding laugh out loud )

Also given the amounts involved you'd be able to win in small claims if you had to- including adding to your judgement the much-less-than-cost-of-tax-on-an-oled filing fee

Literally the only thing you'd have to do is show up with a copy of the written warranty and ask the other side to point out where it excludes coverage based on type of dealer.

It doesn't of course- which is why you'd never need to go to court over it- there's no legal reason whatsoever LG could deny coverage under based on the dealer being "authorized" or not since, again, the warranty does not care either way about the dealer other than that they are in the US selling a US model. Which all these deals are.

I was waiting for 1499
This is tempting
1699 plus tax and i get 100$ in ebay bucks
Using citi visa card i get 2 yr extra warranty

I figure if at max itll come down to 1599 for BF? Which with ebay bucks is at that price

Will order tonight unless if anyone has other suggestions

So risk the potential of having to resort to small claims court for a warranty claim on a television because you saved sales tax. Yep, I can see the logic. Let's be honest...warranty claims from a huge consumer products company can be a hair-pulling experience, even when you do everything by the book. I've personally experienced horror stories with GE and Samsung refrigerator warranty claims. The retailer is often the first resort for a warranty claim, followed by your credit card company. Hence the reason Costco sells so may televisions. No way am I playing craps by purchasing a high return rate/expensive to ship electronic item via gray market on ebay.

Just an experience i had with LG and warranty of their product. I bought a monitor from Newegg, which went bad within a couple of months. I contacted LG for warranty repair and was denied because Newegg was not an authorized dealer. Newegg of all places not an authorized dealer of LG monitors. LG are dicks with authorized dealers, you can register it with their site like i did no problems but when its time to use that warranty, good luck, you will be denied instantly.

there is no risk

The explict terms of the written warranty say you are covered.

It doesn't even mention authorized dealers.

Your hysteria otherwise notwithstanding.

LG monitors are not the same company as LG TVs, and don't have the same warranty... so not, at all, relevant here.

https://www.lg.com/us/support

See the different groups at the top?

Notice how TV/Audio/Video is one group... and Computers (including monitors) is another?

Different warranty, different terms.

We went through this a few months back with some idiot who repairs air conditioners screaming that LG EXPLICITLY REQUIRES AUTHORIZED DEALERS during a previous TV thread... then when asked for evidence posted an air conditioner warranty...

When his mistake was pointed out he left the thread.

For the folks in the back:

Here's a copy of an LG appliance warranty.

http://pdf.lowes.com/warrantyguid...rranty.pdf

Quote from LG warranty :
applies only when the product is purchased through an LG authorized dealer or distributor and used within the United States
LG appliance cares if the dealer is authorized or not

Legally- they can deny coverage if your dealer isn't authorized, since that exclusion is listed in the written warranty.


NOW....


Now here's a copy of an LG television warranty.

https://www.qvc.com/footers/el/pd...rranty.pdf

Quote from LG warranty :
This warranty is good only to the original purchaser of the unit and effective only when used in the United States
Notice how it does not care if the dealer was authorized or not?

Legally they can not deny coverage for that reason because there's no such exclusion in the written warranty.

Which is why there's no "risk" they'll engage in illegal activity just to personally "gotcha" somebody who buys on Ebay.'


LG television group is exactly as able and likely to deny you coverage because your name is Bob than because your dealer wasn't authorized.
