Very interesting story. I'll be brief.
Purchased at Amazon. (Very Important:
Sold by Pauls. Fulfilled by Amazon.
Paid $4100, understanding (to my best ability) that there was a price match for 30 days. Amazon touts this guarantee.
Received and installed the TV. Beautiful!!! Saw the price for $3700 at USAppliance. I called Amazon and they claimed the price match isn't valid.
Called Pauls, and they claimed it was Amazon's inventory. "Rep said Sorry, but it looks like it's in the Middle." Pauls' support was very indifferent. Amazon was apologetic but stood by their policy.
So Amazon had to take the TV back, instead of a $400 match. Reboxed, Used TV, and they pay the shipper to come back to my house.
Ordered from US Appliance, and actually had 2 TVs sitting here for a day. Amazon picked up their 80" tv.
i have purchased from Amazon for years and have never had an issue until now.
BTW, the TV is awfully nice, and big!!
