Was browsing Costco and found these really good deals. You Must be a costco member to get these deals. You definitely cant beat Costco's 2 year warranty and hassle free returns if you don't like the sound of them.

Samsung HW-J8500 Curved 9.1 Channel Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer $449.99 + tax (free shipping) (currently $977 on amazon right now)

They have ibefore but it depends on the store manager or employee on duty. It doesnt hurt to call and ask before going. Although buying it from Costco nets you a free second year warranty on it.

this is actually a great price. The cheapest I have seen was around Thanksgiving 2015 when the price was approximately $800 from Amazon or Best Buys.

Agreed, if I didn't pick up a set of Jbl 590's from Amazon for $900 I would have been all over this for my bedroom, just wish I had more to spend but it's ok, learning to stay on budget is hard these days especially with slickdeals lmfao

Hello All,

I am interested in the Samsung HW-J8500 set but wanted to know if this would work with a non-curved Samsung 4K SUHD JS8500 TV?

Thx

From what I've read in the reviews they work with almost all Samsung tv's (and probably non Samsung as well in regards to just using the audio and not the stand function of it) using the hdmi cable to get the audio. Maybe theirs a comparability list online; however, like I just mentioned it will probably only list tv's that fit the stand, but that doesn't mean it won't work with other tv's. The biggest difference is that these are curved just to match the curved tv's stands (might even replace it, not sure) but if you don't have a curved tv you can still use it. If it doesn't work/fit nicely with your tv or sound as good as you like you can always return it for any reason within 90 days no questions asked at Costco.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I figured as much...of course I bought my TV thru Costco.com and love it, however I was told that if I bought anything online - the only way to return it was thru Costco.com. Not sure on their return shipping cost policy?

thx

Here's a review of the soundbar, from what the photos show its just an hdmi in and out so I really can't see it not working, either way Costco will accept the return if it somehow didn't work.

As for their returns, I bought a laptop from their website and returned it to the store once I got it after finding another deal online elsewhere. I just printed out the order page and walked in. That was it. Sometimes stores are picky, but I've never had a problem returning online orders to the stores.

How close are these with reproducing true side/rear speakers? Do you need to sit in a "sweet spot?"

You score third year warranty free if you use Amex to purchase it.

I ordered one of these last night from Costco, $449 + Tax. Thanks OP.

Today I went to Best Buy that had it in stock and got a Price Match to work after much hesitation. Initially it was refused because it was below their cost of $700.

I recommend before going in to print out the following:

Costco Product Page with Price
Costco Checkout Page with Price
Best Buy Price Match Guarantee Page [bestbuy.com]
Make sure to expand the FAQ's before printing, namely the following two:

Does Best Buy match the prices of a Warehouse club?
Yes. We do match the prices of Warehouse clubs as long as the Warehouse club is a local retail competitor, has an identical immediately available product and all other price match criteria are met.

Does Best Buy match the price if it results in a price being below Best Buy's cost on a product?
Yes. So long as the price match requested is on an identical immediately available product and all other price match criteria are met.

I plan on keeping the Costco one and the Best Buy one. I also purchased the 4 Year Best Buy Geek Squad Protection Plan for $74.99. So if I have any issues with either one, I can take it to Best Buy (they don't log Serial Numbers of the Soundbar at the time of purchase). Keep in mind that the Geek Squad plan includes replacing the remote 1 time through the life of the term, which will probably happen. Additionally I get 10% back in Rewards, so $50 back, which pays for most of the Geek Squad Warranty.

So yes I am keeping both, one for my 65" JS8500 and one for my 55" JS8500. This will be replacing a Samsung H7501 Soundbar. Hope my wife lets me keep both!

Do you have to be a member to access the pricing page? I'd like to pricematch to BB.
