I'm Looking to pickup a 70" Sharp. The best deal I have found is $1999 at BB (LC70LE632U) but I've read of others getting it for $1500 or less. I'm hoping we can share links to any good deals for Monday and beyond.

Need. More. Bass.

Costco has had the LC70LE633U for $1899 in store all week. Supposedly HHgreg or Fry's had the 632U for a $1500 doorbuster on Black Friday. I would guess they only had 2 or 3 per store at that price.

Well, I must have missed it. That would have been a great deal. I was actually looking at the 60" at the time which would explain why I missed it. I was there today and it's back up to $2K. I'm hoping to find something this week. If I don't, it just may force me to upgrade further.

These are the best prices I've seen:

70le632u - $1.5K
80le632u - $4K

Personally, I'm waiting another 8 weeks or so. Why? Because some folks who bought 70le732/733/734/735's are wishing they'd gone with the above TVs for reasons of price or size or even pq, the latter being the subject of some debate. I want no such regret and am hoping things will settle out at least somewhat by then. Sharp has, to understate matters, shaken things up with 7, 70 inch plus TVs released in short order and I think under such circumstances a little patience can't hurt.

70" for 1.5K, I believe will be lower than manufacture cost won't see price close to this range for some time

70LE735 maybe drop price since adding cost for 3D is not too much for manufacture

Yes, but there is a "wrong" time, such as when Sharp comes out with an arguably better TV for half the money a few months on...

You can wait forever waiting for the next great thing. A 70" for $1500 is a smoking deal no matter how you slice it.

figure the glasses retail for what? $80-90 ea? So that put this deal in the $2600-2700 range.

best price I've seen yet.

I wonder if these will get down to the $2200-2300 range any time soon.... if so I'm in!!!

I was able to nab the Costco deal for the 70le632u for $1899. That includes an extra year extended warranty and after taking advantage of a cash reward card for $100 off over $500 leaves a great deal for $1799 plus tax. PQ is awesome, smart functions are good (I like the DLNA feature and it works on my network), and wifi and BR movies are awesome after calibration using WOW disc. The sheer size (from a 46" LCD Sharp) to this BEAST still leaves me in AWE!!!

DAMN! They raised the price on this from $1999 to $2499 locally just as I was about to get it. Any idea of anywhere else I can get this for sub $2k?

If you are referring to Best Buy, just go in and ask to speak to the store manager. That $1999 price is in their pipeline and it may take a call from that manager to the regional sales manager, but you can get the deal. All stores have 2-3 levels of "acceptable" prices on these kinds of products. The top 2 levels are usually the standard list price say $2700, the 2nd level is the common "sale" price $2400 and finally the level 3 price is the "special or blowout" price. The store still makes money at the $1999 price.

I shop at a regional electronics store in NJ and never pay more than the "blowout" prices. It helps too that this particular chain is one of the few left that have commissioned salesmen and they just want volume.

But yes....talk with the store manager and I would be surprised if you didn't get the deal.


Good luck.

Yes, Best Buy and also Sears. They both raised the price. I wanted to make the purchase online using ShopDiscover.com to save another 10-15% so I'm not sure how talking to the manager will work in this case. I'm hoping they lower the price online so I can make the purchase or find it elsewhere.

I am looking for a deal on the 732. The lowest advertised price I have seen is $2,599 but that has been a while. I am having a cabinet built and will need it within the month. Any ideas, I am hoping around $2,299. I will only buy from certified e-tailers, not ebay or other.

Well best buy would not let me have it for the sale price. Price match only. Guess I'll be waiting.

Best price so far is at Amazon.com through Paulstv (fulfilled by Amazon) for about 2479 shipped.

http://www.amazon.com/Sharp-LC70LE73...3109618&sr=8-1

if you wanted, I am sure you could contact Paulstv.com directly and ask for that price as I am sure they will do it for you since it is their product.

So, is it true Best Buy will guarantee the 'best' price from their store for 60 days from purchase? In other words, if I buy it today for $2499 and it drops, I can get refunded the difference? This seems like a good route to take as I imagine the price on this will drop until Superbowl.

Yes, that's what they told me. They wanted to sell me the 70LE632 for 2499.00 and said they would price match for 60 days. They had 527 in stock at the warehouse and would ship directly from there to my house but I didn't want to pay that and tax, seemed too much and taking the risk on price match.

Yeah, I agree that seems too high.

I hope I can hold out on just pulling the trigger at the current price. I know the price will go down but is it worth waiting? I'm starting to think the 60 day price match is not a bad deal if I can shell out the $2700 up front (ouch). The only alternative is amazon but you'll be giving up the long price match. Ugh.

I would roll the dice on Best Buy if I were going to buy it today. I think there is decent chance it will drop by Superbowl. It may not reach sub $2000 (but it could), however, I imagine it will drop at least $200-300.

Does Best Buy allow for multiple price drop refunds? Or is it just a one time price drop like Amazon?
