The Sony store on ebay has the New Sony 70" Class (69.5" diag) R550 Series LED Internet TV KDL70R550A for $2124.99.
Footnote #7: 7. Purchase by 9/28/2013 and redeem by 10/31/13. Consumers who purchase a qualifying new 2013 Sony BRAVIA TV will receive a 12 month subscription to Netflix Unlimited Streaming service and Hulu Plus service on the $7.99/month plans. New, existing and past Netflix subscribers are eligible for the Netflix offer. Credit card is required to redeem the Hulu Plus offer and is open only to new subscribers.
So I think you get a free year of Netflix Unlimited Streaming service and Hulu Plus service on the $7.99/month plans. New, existing and past Netflix subscribers are eligible for the Netflix offer. Credit card is required to redeem the Hulu Plus offer and is open only to new subscribers.
I don't know if the HuluPlus service is free or $7.99 month.
Free economy shipping. I don't know if they charge taxes or not. I'm not sure if I will buy it or wait?

Sony charges sales tax for orders shipped to all states except the following in compliance with government tax laws:

Alaska
Delaware
Montana
Nebraska
New Hampshire
Oregon
West Virginia

I guess it's not a decent price unless you live in one of the above states.
Sorry.

Yes I've used B&H photo before, they shipped fast and had good customer service. I would use them again.

I have purchased many thousands in photography equipment for B&H, excellent company to deal with.

What's the difference between this and the official Sony store? I'm wondering if best buy will price match.

alltimetvs.com has it for $2195.00 with free shipping and no taxes for IL. I don't know if other states have to pay taxes.
I have never bought anything from there and I have no idea how good they are. I saw it on a nextag.com search.

After I posted the above post I saw a thread about alltimetvs.com here.
Some mention hidden added costs were added to their total.
I definitely won't order from them.

The link above has it for $2159 with free shipping.
When I put in my zip code to check if I would have to pay taxes it took $15 off for customer appreciation and no taxes for IL.
I never heard of this place before.
But since I am not in hurry I will wait around for Amazon or someone I know.

B&H is an elite retailer, perhaps the best of the best. They ship immediately (I always get my gear the next day), including on Sundays, and they never charge sales tax or delivery. And, they never, ever bait and switch. A-stock only- no open box, refurb, ....

Amazon price-matches B&H. But it would be stupid to choose Amazon. They charge sales tax and B&H doesn't.

Update for 9-2-13
I just got off the phone with fry's after a 20 minute wait.
I was told it is the Sony that is on sale for $1699. She gave me the model number. I could not order it over the phone. She said I have to order it online or go to the store. She checked and said there are some left at the Downers Grove, IL store. When I try ordering it online I keep getting a price of $2499. I guess my only choice is to drive about 1 hour to Downers Grove and see if I can order it there. And then I will have to pay delivery charges or $69.99 plus $1.50 per mile over 20 miles. I was told frys charges that for all tvs above 60". There should be an easier way to order a tv. I hate to spend a couple hours driving and then be told it is out of stock or it is the Sharp instead of the Sony.

Amazon has it for $2199.98 with free shipping and no taxes in IL. They did have it for about $60 cheaper last week.
Price: $2,199.98 This item qualifies for 2% back in Rewards, the TV Low Price Guarantee, Free Shipping, and Enhanced Delivery.

I just returned from Fry's in Downers Grove, IL. On my receipt they charged 1768.99; which is 1699 for the tv and 69.99 for delivery. And taxes were 140.17.
So the total price is 1909.16 including delivery & taxes. He said he had several in stock. And he said they have been running this sale price a few times about
every couple weeks. This was the first time I phoned because on slickdeals.net I saw it and some stores like Dallas were saying the Sharp was on sale and other
stores like Downers Grove said they had the Sony on sale. In the Frys ad it just says 70" major brand name on sale for 1699. I was told they will bring it to my house
and un box it. They will connect up to 3 devices to it. And they will put it on the stand that comes with it. They won't put it on my wall mount where my current 54" tv
is.
