I was able to talk a Best Buy Magnolia manager into selling me the 65" VT60 for $3100. I have to admit I think going in on a tuesday in the middle of the day helped a lot. I don't think they move a lot of high end TVs during the week and he seemed very interested in moving product. I was hoping to get a price match to $3200 (Cleveland Plasma is at $3100 plus $100 for shipping). Right off the bat I was able to get that price. I pondered doing it for that price and he just said if you do it today I will let it go for $3100. They don't even have the 65" in their store yet, so it is being shipped to store and I will pick it up Saturday. I live in PA (6% sales tax) and this store is just over the line in Delaware (no sales tax). If they ship to PA the tax is tacked on so I will just drive the 15 minutes to pick it up and save the $186 in taxes.
If you go into the store you can most likely get the price cut by $400-$500. I am very happy paying that price and no interest for 2 years is always a bonus. Find a manager and you should be able to negotiate a good price. The problem is right now they can't even tell how much Best Buy pays for the units. It isn't in their system yet, but they can order them. Good luck to all who try to get a good deal.
