@ a couple of posters including this one.
First - And I am a guy who bought this TV as my first switch from Plasma. My Kaaaaochh gets harder everyday over the quality on this thing. I cant emphasize enough how I think the 240hz is whats really putting the thing over the top... I cant explain but when compared to the LG 47" I also got aroudn the same time (a discontinued Sams one apparently), its like the LG has this little light show of digital snow going on in the background all the time that has to "tune down" for a few secs on each input change or whatever. Still if you get close and stare - ITS ALWAYS THERE.. WHF!!!!???, anyone care to explain that for me???
Second - To update the Sams policy - ITS SEVEN DAYS for price reduction matching and 3 months for returns for any reason. BUT BE CLEAR - I have discovered some nasty truths about Sams...
. You must have the original receipt for return credit. I dont think there is a restock or even a repacking charge if the box is trashed. But you can go to Cust service all day and they will tell you than can reprint a "record" but you cant use for returns. Perhaps for exchange - yes. Regarding the price matching on same items Sams lowers. They lowered this TV from 1198 to 1098 since I bought. The rep made it sound like I would "get credit: for that for up to 1 -3 months if I bring my receipt to CS and complain ( I dont recall precise). YOu will not. SO I said, "then you are telling me that you would rather me bring this thing back with no box, return, and buy a new one!?!?!?" I got no good response other than discounting what the value of $100.00 really is.
. So I did find my receipt ( its really speculation as to if the Ink will even last 90 days - seriously - and byt he way these receipts are a method of BPA Contamination that surpases all others if you are health saavy), But I realized my club no longer had any in stock, WHICH AMAZES ME and FYI they ARE about all gone. So I found one 20 miles away and I will pick that one up new, and then return it to my local club. Boom... I wont even have to take mine off the wall LOL...
Third - They are almost gone I think as they cited they are lowering the price to clear them out. But I just dont see how when its a fairly new model. Oh well. Perhaps I should be waiting the full 90 days to see whats next. Then again, I will have a 90 days on the receipt from the purchase tomorrow. LOL
But my point is this. Even if I had to return the set unboxed and buy another one because of their dumbass pricing policy it woud be like this. If Sams feels like thats absurd over 100 bucks, then they should give a **** enough not to arbitrarily lower the price that much. Obviously they dont care about "Small expenses" if they can just decide they would like to make 100buck less on these - so they can go ahead and eat the restock cost.... There are plenty of 65" models in stock but I suspect this set does not come close to the 55" because of thee increase in size and lack of 240hz.. I just dont understand why they would lower the price on this one like they dont even pay attention to the "market buzz" and good reviews on the value of this thing....?!?!?!?

Should be able to just return it anyway, if you dont like it. maybe buy the 80" monster they usually have instead?
anyway 40 bux on top of their cheap price for that tv is worth it.
