They're officially matching the Costco + shipping price, but no tax. For anyone who recently bought it, you can get a nice price adjustment too!

How does the Amazon warranty compare to the Costco's? Costco give you an extra year, and if you pay $100 more, you get 3 more years, making it 5. I don't know what Amazon offers. I would have to pick up the one at Costco to save on sales tax though. I live in Jersey, but work in Delaware. No sales tax.

Thanks for the alert JoeBel.

I was waiting for the 55GT30 to go down in price on Amazon (had $1000 of credit) but it wouldn't move from $1599. Supposedly the picture on the ST series is right up there with the GT so for $350 less and 5" more i jumped for the 60ST30 on Amazon.

Amazing deal. I hope one of the amazon sellers like beach camera will match or I have to pay sales tax being in NY.

Sears price matched the 60" from Costco, plus 10% of the difference, bringing it to a total of $1150. Got it in Delaware, so no sales tax. For a Panasonic 60" 3D plasma? What a deal. They have to order it. I kept reading that the ones from Costco were having issues.

What issues are the Costco models having? Costco just started selling them this week. I can't imagine there are many complaints at this point.

wow.. nicee.. first tried to get the 50st30 from BB at $730 but they quickly sold out (even thou u can still see the special price on their site). When I saw the $1249 price last time waited for the morning to place the order but had gone up.. . So decided to go with the 55st30 but went to pick it up at the local Target (total $1274 w/taxes) this was yesterday... set it up .. looks great, 3d is great too and this is before calibrating the set. Now i see the 60st30 back to $1249... couldn't resist got one and when it arrives here the 55st30 will go back to Target... so for $20 buck less got more real estate of viewing pleasure... thx Amazon.. (now just have to pray that nothing goes wrong w/delivery)...

I actually ordered this on Wednesday at this price after waiting it out. Price varied everyday and I think its actually gone back up to 15 something now. I kept missing it and almost gave up. Suppose to be here next Friday. Hopefully that will change as its not far from me now. Can't wait!

Dang, it's back up to $1595.
Dave Mack's Avatar Dave Mack 11:56 AM 02-11-2012
They were matching the Costco price before. No longer?
dllhg's Avatar dllhg 01:54 PM 02-11-2012
Costco has it for $1199 and $49 shipping for members. Nice thing is you get a 3 year warranty from them too.
Nick Smith's Avatar Nick Smith 03:25 PM 02-11-2012
3 year warranty? I thought it was just 1 year manufacturer's and an additional year from their 'concierge' service. They do carry Square Trade 3 year warranties for $100, though.
mjconnor10's Avatar mjconnor10 03:28 PM 02-11-2012
I'm not a Costco member - is that a sale price or their regular price? I've been thinking about getting a membership, and have some friends who are.
tacos's Avatar tacos 04:22 PM 02-11-2012
Seeing how my tv will not be here until Friday. I have yet to purchase any kind of warranty. What would be my best bet? How long do I have to buy the extended warranty from Amazon? Also, cant you buy an extended warranty for any tv from Costco whether you buy the tv from them or not? Thanks

It appears to be their regular price. If you don't want to spend the $50 on a membership you could always ask to use your friend's membership to order it online.

I'm not familiar with Amazon's extended warranty, but a lot of people seem to be happy with Square Trade. You can buy the S.T. warranty from many places, but it seems to be about the cheapest at Costco.

From Costco.com:

"Costco's SquareTrade pricing is exclusive to Costco Members. You must purchase a SquareTrade Service Plan from a Costco Warehouse or from www.costco.com. Costco members may also purchase a SquareTrade Service plan to cover a new TV purchased outside of Costco from an authorized retailer in the US. Service Plan must be bought within 60 days of purchasing the TV."

That's because it's a seller"frugal buys", not amazon itself.

And is out of stock on Amazon itself.

Yep. It's gone in and out of stock several times in the past week. Just keep an eye out.

I've been looking to pull the trigger on a 60 inch ST30 from amazon. Hopefully they get some more " shipped and sold by Amazon" in stock.

How do they match the Costco price? Do you purchase and then send customer service an email for a price match?
tacos's Avatar tacos 09:16 AM 02-19-2012
I paid 1249 last week for the st30 60 inch. And costco's site still says 1199 so, I have asked for a price match. According to Amazon's policy (find s cheaper price within 14 days) they should match it right? I've never had any luck with price matching anything so, I usually just say the heck with it. But, if I read the policy right. They should. I guess we will see.
tacos's Avatar tacos 09:26 AM 02-19-2012
So much for that. The said shipping costs are included so, the prices are equal.
