I bought the TC-65PST34 from Costco a few days ago for $2000 but found the TC-P65ST30 at Fry's for $1500. Based on other threads, they are the same model... Costco just gets their own model number.
Costco generally has fantastic prices so I'm wondering why there's a $500 difference. All I can think of is the warranty. The tv comes with 1 year, Costco tacks on 1 more, and I bought a 3-year plan for $100, giving me a total of 5 years coverage. Fry's sells a 4 year contract for $529 but I'm not sure if that's 4 more years or 4 years total.
Are warranties generally that expensive? Are they good to have for plasma tvs? (this is my first). I'm tempted to return the tv to Costco and buy it from Fry's. What are your thoughts?
