In store only. Call to verify price before you go. Online email price request does not reflect discount.

I guess it pays to pay attention, LOL. I just called the ohio store, it's $4999. That was a crazy deal.

77" is still pretty much anyone's guess, but you can find pre-release prices of $6250 for the 65" (4K) here on the forum...

No, that's just the pre-release street price. By the time street priced have 'settled' probably closer to Black Friday, I expect them to be significantly lower still (<$5000).

I'd say you have a year before that happens in the 65" size (next gen) as they have zero competition Globally.

Also, Black Friday means nothing to Flagship reference panels as they almost never receive discounts during BF season - the panels flying off the shelves are the bare bones budget models not high end. Flagship panels have never needed such discounting until model year transitions occur and a perfect example is Sony 900A series were cut 50% and a tactic Sony does annually to clear inventory.

The 65" OLED will retail for about the same as the Sony 950B until it clears out in 2015. Flagships often mirror pricing of their competitors. LG likely will have advantage of being reference quality and only OLED in the game in these sizes for 2014 anyways. Don't ever expect a Reference flagship to carry a price of a Vizio.

I have been tracking these and was about to pull the trigger on Amazon for $3 or $3.5, when i came across this deal. I jumped in my car and drove from Pittsburgh to Mayfield OH store last night, me and another gentleman both checked out with them at the same time with this set, and they were the last 2 units left i believe. They did mention they may have a demo unit left as of last night.
