YMMV In-Store/ Authorized Seller: LG OLED65CXP CX Series 4K OLED TV- 65" (2020 Model) - Free Shipping - $2100

I bought the LG OLED65CXP CX Series - 65" this morning from an authorized seller "video only" in Bay Area, CA location. Yes this is a store name Smilie

https://www.videoonly.com/

I paid 2100 + tax + recycling fee = $2300/- total with local next day delivery.

Lowest price for this model seems to be $2500/- total ( No tax in CA) from Value Electronics(Authorized Seller).

It seems that with covid they are more than willing to sell at a discount with very few people in store and low cashflow.

In the Store(Only Video), i saw LG C9/CX and Sony A9G/A8G.

I was either going to buy C9 or CX from an authorized seller, but decided with CX since C9 from greentoe was at $1900/- in CA.

Visually CX seemed little brighter/contrasty than C9 and this was more visible compared to Sony A8G . CX compared to Sony A9G, i could not see any difference

$400 difference on CX vs C9 was worth it to me with better long term support and perceived visual difference. Sony A9G being way more expensive and no visual difference compared to CX, was not my choice.

The store had other good deals on 55" oleds as well, but i didn't pay attention there.

This was my first time and a surprising experience where the store salesman gave me the remote and told me to play around. I was there for 1 hour playing youtube videos on the OLED's and playing with different picture settings to compare them. BestBuy/Costco dont allow this.

Overall good experience and a great deal Smilie


Update: You might be able to score this deal at $2000. I spoke to the sales person who sold it to me. He mentioned if i get more buyers he would be willing to go down further Smilie

For those who cannot go in-store and/or are out-of-state. There is one more option. You can arrange a third party freight shipping that will pickup from store and deliver. If you are out-of-state, as per the sales guy i talked to, they wont charge any sales-tax.
The sales-guy told me that they are responsible for any damages during local shipment/delivery. Thus they dont ship beyond their geographical assigned areas since it becomes too costly for them.

What was the in-store price for 65" C9 ?
Also, is there a way to confirm that the TVs are brand new and not used ? How's this store still in business by giving such deep discounts ?
In-Store for 65 C9 was $1999/-.
I dont think authorized seller would sell used items, pass it off as new and risk getting de-listed and out of business.
One way is 'Settings -> General -> About this TV -> Total Power On Time', but maybe this counter can be reset.
Alternatively, decode the manufacturing date from the S/N number.

Nevertheless, i dont know of a full-proof way of knowing.

I was under the same impression but they did quote me the $2300 of the 65" CX over the phone which has an MSRP of $2800 which implies that they won't be able to go much lower on the 77" from what they have as their list price. Maybe LG is planning to lower the price - not sure.

Regardless, would love to hop a similar deal if it's possible for a 77"
If you can show them a cheap online deal for the model you want, they will probably beat it irrespective of the list price. In person in store is your best bet.

I picked the last relatively new C9 from the MTV store for 1099. There was a green sticker that said complete but everything seemed completely shrink wrapped and undisturbed including the remote and manual. When I booted it up and finished set up it said the TV had been on for 0 hours.

Also considering they are definitely open when they should not be considering the laws around Bay Area SIP I assume their margins are thin enough that they can't close.

When did you go to the store ? Is it the 55" or 65" C9 ?

What did you say to negotiate? I called them and they basically just gave me the MSRP price for the 55". You think they will give me a different price if I go in store?

Just went into the store. They are completely out of C9s at all the locations (I went to MTV but the guy called all the other locations in front of me).

He said he was willing to match 2100 on the CX 65 and 1600 for the CX 55.

Called a couple stores and wasn't able to get the 77" c9 at anything lower than $3999. This might be different in person but would love to hear if anyone is able to drop this lower. I think I would be on board with a sub $3k price for the c9 77" but not sure if this is doable with them.

Can confirm that they are getting the CX 65"s at a list price of $2300 so its sounds very likely that most stores could drop that down in person to OPs price.

FYI Hayward's store is closed and is getting their called forwarded to San Mateo.
Go in-store and let me know, if you can. I'm willing to spend $3,200-3,300 on a C9 and ~$3,600 for a CX.

Went to their store in WA this afternoon. Got a CX 65" for 2050 + tax with 5 yr warranty.

It was the 55 and I got it two days ago in the afternoon. When I showed up the guy said a lot of calls had come in for it and he quoted me the 1099 price over the phone so he stuck to it. Considering he told me it was brand new and then questioned if it had been opened previously I probably should have pushed on the price, but considering most of it was still sealed in the box (remote, other stuff obviously was stickered together) and the OLED on time said 0 maybe it was just a very quick return.

He had a 65 GX on display at $3199.
I would probably negotiate in-store at $2700-$2800.
