Price Protection:
Step 1: Go to the store and get it, make sure you have the correct model. If buy two, better separate.
Step 2: Go home and wait BUT DO NOT open the box until you get the PP confirmation or check$.
Step 3: Wait the official ADs with model number. Bestbuy will release their BF Ads on Sunday 11/19 or as late as Thanksgiving Day. Or find one online. Just pay more attention.
Step 4: Apply price protection.
Step 5: If it doesn't work for you, go back to the store ask for return and full refund.


All Discover Cards
https://www.discover.com/credit-c...ction.html
Step 0. Go to the store and drag this TV out, if CSR does not let you, ask for manager. Protect your receipt safe.
Step 1: After purchase, wait for a day or two. (No need to wait for the transaction to be posted to your card account.) Call the number 1-800-638-8312 [cardbenefitcenter.com] to file a claim. Will ask you your name, first 8 digit of card, last 4 digit of card, address, phone, email, TV, purchase date, will NOT ask store, model, prices. Then get your claim#.
Step 2: Go to the website https://www.cardbenefitcenter.com and apply. Need receipt, statement, Ads to fill out the form.
-------Take a photo of your receipt, or scan it to a PDF.
-------Lower price found can use website and screenshot of it: http://blackfriday.bestbuy.com You also can submit two proofs, the screenshot [imgur.com], andthe scanned ADs from other website with model# [imgur.com] on it. Hopefully at least one is going to work.
-------For the statement, you don't need to wait for your monthly bill statement, just login to your account and download the PDF version of your recent transactions, that will be fine.
Step 3: Wait to be approved. Check your application status regularly until you get approved. Takes two days to get approved as of 11/23/2016.
Step 4: Wait your check $$$$.
Step 5: Enjoy your TV. (or you could directly enjoy it after purchase, and you still can return it even with open box.)

12/20 Check received
Good Luck Everyone!


Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, Chase Freedom card also offer price protection. [YMMV]
There is a lot of confusion vis a vis Chase's price match policies, and clearly the CSRs are just as confused as the customers.
Chase's Price Protection terms, which you can read in online digest form [chase.com] and/or on page 21 and on of their Benefit Guide [chasebenefits.com], state the following exceptions to their $500 / $2,500 general terms:
  • Price Protection is limited to fifty dollars for each item and one hundred and fifty dollars a year for each Account for advertisements of cash only, close-out, liquidation and going-out-of-business sales.
  • Price Protection does not apply to ... Advertisements for flea markets, fire sales, limited quantity promotions, seasonal sales or Auctions
By Chase's own terms the SKU-carrying ad makes this TV not eligible for any kind of Price Protection, because the ad page the TV SKU is printed on [urlhasbeenblocked.net] states "quantities on all items in this Ad are limited." If the Benefit Administrator awards you $50 per item because they misapply their policy for liquidation sales to this TV, you got lucky. If you get the full Price Protection for this TV ($250) you got damn lucky.

If you only have chase card, you may try to argue that this deal is not a "limited quantity" deal but a "limited time" deal, because there is no "limited quantity" stated on their website or on their other printed ad [urlhasbeenblocked.net], Don't use the Black Friday ad in the previous paragraph with the SKU and the "limited quantity" disclaimer. Hover the link, take a screenshot, screenshot the page the ad links to, etc. to build your case in absence of aSKU or model number. Good luck.


All Citi Cards offer Price Rewind
https://www.citipricerewind.com/guide

Quote :
~Standupdad~ The basics for the Citi Price Rewind: Buy the item. Register the item you purchased. If it finds a lower price within 60 days, including BF and Door Buster items, they'll either credit your account for the difference or send you a check. If you call, and have screen shots of the ad ready (Since BB already posted), you'll need screen shots showing the exact model and a picture of your receipt showing the last 4 of your CC and the purchase. Citi states about 14 days for credit to show.

In addition to the price credit, check to see if you get a warranty extension. I got two years of the standard TV warranty added to the one year warranty that comes with it. If you purchase an extended warranty, the 2 years would tack onto the end of that (max total 7 years of any combined coverage).

Lastly, this is the way to go for purchasing items at BB. You get full price credit towards your BB rewards program because your credit/refund goes to your credit card.

Best Buy Does NOT price match during Black Friday to Cyber Monday.
Meaning you cannot do the return-repurchase during those days. But you could return and get a full refund.

==========================================================================================

yes but you would have to have the AD wihch shows the exact model number and it would have to match up with yours. often times, companies change the model number (add a letter at the end of it) for the black friday AD tv and thus it makes it so you cannot use it.if we can find an ad that matches between the two, we'd be golden and id buy it as well. let me know if you find something!

I'm talking about the bestbuy website listing. The price would be marked down during the event. So model number etc is same. That is what happened last year.

but see thats what I'm trying to tell you, it doesn't work that way. I've used it previously for BF ads, that SPECIFICALLY had the same exact model number as the product i bought earlier. it didn't work for my friend who tried to price protect the same item, with a different model number. so basically YMMV if it shows a different model #/no model number (like the current BF ad unless im missing something).

That is why you buy the item 5 days before BF so that you are in return period Smilie and possible approval period if extended returns.

either way i dont think its going to work. you have to go based on the ad, and the ad doesn't show model numbers. when you send it in what are you going to tell them why the model numbers don't match up? looks like the companies are becoming more aware of this, its not in there interest that you do this

How about you buy this TV now online and if the model numbers turns out to be different return it after Black friday. They have extended returns throughout Novemeber. Can anyone see a problem with this plan?

Well, I'm trying to explain that `BestBuy` will use the same listing now and on Black Friday. But the price will be marked down in the same listing. So the model will not change. At least that's what happened last year. A man can always try and return if it does not work. Not a huge YMMV. A lot of people including me have done this with BB last year. Good luck ! or move on Smilie

Update: I just recollected this was in store only. The price was marked down online, but did not allow to buy. So one had to buy in store before BF which only few store reps allowed. YMMV.

The model number is 49L621U. Are you saying that when the ad goes up and the price changes, the model number will also change? Usually when the ad goes up, you can click the link and go to the item, to get the full details, including model number. Screen shot that, match it to what your receipt/box say, and you should be good.

Honestly, Best Buy shouldn't give a crap on this because it's the credit card that offers the price match. If anything, BB would want to encourage it, because then they're getting full price for the TV. Citi, Discover, whoever, I believe likely use some kind of insurance company to pay these claims out.

With all that said about price protection, anyone care to comment on the quality of the TV? have $250 in BB GCs saved for BF, this looks like the best deal so far in my price range. Anyone have experience with this one?

Thanks for pointing out that this is in store only. I placed my order online and now I am trying to cancel but they are not cancelling it.Can I get a screenshot of the reduced price item online?
If you are not getting price protection on it then its very hard to get this tv in store because that would mean being in the queue for more than 12 hours. They normally dont have a lot of these on black Friday.

Can someone share their experience from last year? If BestBuy did not disclose the exact model on the ad how did you get the price protection to work?
