With all the manufacturers seemingly going to 'fixed' pricing and holding prices it seems like promotions are the main thing to shop for now. Let's try to keep a thread going listing any current promotions you might find.

In a store last week I was offered a 50e6500 for $1249 which the salesman said included a $150 instant rebate that Samsung just told the store they could give. But, he also told me some lies about why they didn't carry Panasonic now so I don't know how trustworthy this info is. I also couldn't find any info on line about a rebate.
Might be worth asking at your local store though.

With a purchase of certain Samsung TVs, including PN64E7000 or 8000, you get a free $250 Samsung Sound Bar.

Promotion: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_363640622_3?ie=UTF8&docId=1000811321&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=hero-quick-promo&pf_rd_r=12YA06ND3JT1A6TSVJMQ&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=1375949502&pf_rd_i=B0077SF3VY

Soundbar: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0076U29LK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I actually just pulled the trigger on this TV at my local retailer, thinking that the promo was only valid there, but apparently, Amazon just started it too. Looks like I'm going to have to cancel the local order and go with Amazon.

Tiger has a 600 off coupon for the 64 variant of the E7000 as well, but I simply will not buy from them, despite the savings. Unfortunately, Amazon refused to PM, so I'm just going to be holding out until their prices match. BTW, this is the second round of 600 off coupons tiger has run on this series, which leads the cynical side of me to be suspicious.

Tiger Direct has a very strict return policy, even at their brick and mortar stores.

There's always two sides to a store, I have bought from Tiger for years and have never had a problem with returning defective stuff or dealing with them.

Coupon code ends tonight (Saturday) at midnight.
My local BB was willing to match the price but I can't get to them before they close tonight.

That sucks, if I would have known that, I would have asked my local best buy to match...

Can you tell me which store was going to do that? My Best Buy is refusing without a precedent.

edit: none of the best buys here will even bother with tigerdirect because there's no retail store anywhere near me. So rather than best buy ever getting any money off of these, ill just be sending it to amazon when the price drops enough.

Another example why Best Buy is losing business and becoming just a showroom for Amazon and Tiger Direct.

Totally disagree, BB is the Best! I just went in and bought a Samsung 51e7000 for $1200! The salesman knew I was shopping online, went to the computer and said here is a price no one online has and gave it to me! 36 months financing, free delivery, 30 day return - everything is great.
I really suggest anyone looking for a tv give them a chance.
And no, I am not an employee of theirs, just a happy customer.

CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Get home from buying a new tv at BB, turn on my hd rptv Toshiba and watcjed if for an hour or so. All of a sudden, the bottom half of my screen shows the red and blue guns totally separated, it looks like an old 3-d movie without the glasses!! Tried an 'auto tune' and it comes back with an error, the guns must be shot!
Do you think the Toshiba heard us talking about the new TV?
Deliver won't be until Thursday for the new one.........

LOL

Good to hear that the salesman was offering competitive pricing at that location. They need to adopt this more aggressive pricing policy nationwide in order to generate new business. HHG and Fry's have been more flexible in this regard, and more willing to negotiate price. Best Buy needs to do the same in order to remain in business. Previously I have found them very reluctant to price match or offer a better price. Hopefully this is starting to change.

I think so. $500 gift card is like a cash back so you are looking at $2197. As I recalled, I don't think I see the price this low. Got mine at that price as well but replacing wall mount for 3d bluray and 2 extra pairs of glass.

I just picked up a "Used-Like New" from Amazon Warehouse deals for $1034.11. I know it isn't new, but you can get a 1 year warranty for $45. I'll let you know how that goes when it comes in on Wednesday next week.

Well it came in. The box was banged up around the corners but the TV itself was in flawless condition. Mounted it right up to the wall. It does buzz though. I had already run my power cable through the wall once so I didnt bother running the new one it came with. After hearing the buzz though I decided to try switching it out. It came with a shorter thicker power cable and some spare ferrite cores to put on it. It was barely long enough but it did reduce the buzz quite a bit. I can still hear though if I pay attention. It has one more ferrite core to put on the signal wires and I am debating doing that next. It's just that my cables are barely long enough as is. I might just have to repurchase some longer HDMIs and an optical cable.

Since they are UMRP models, one would assume...

Looks like $1997.99. Were you looking at a refurb?

Tiger Direct had a coupon code worth $450 yesterday for the Samsung 60" E7000. Shipping was extra so it was tempting but I held off as I don't need another wi-fi source and could care less for 3D. How about the Samsung PN64E533 on sale at Costco for $1399;)

1600 delivered is an excellent price assuming its the 60 inch? The 8000 only adds a cam and mic, worthless to most

Best i have seen lately is PN60E7000 for $1699 with free shipping + white glove+ no tax.
Samsung pricing has iron-like discipline. No official resellers are deviating from the company line. I guess that once Samsung gives the word, prices may drop.
