It would be a 4 year warranty, not 5. First year Samsung and years 2, 3 and 4 are covered through ST. No year 5 coverage.

Anyone had luck using the movers coupon online? When I received it in my email this morning, it clearly said "instore and online use" but when it wouldn't let me apply it to my cart online, their little chat minions say the following:

The coupon won't work on the F8500. There are a list of exclusions and certain level of TV's are excluded, including the F8500. The store manger would have to be willing to over ride it for you to get the discount but that can be very hit or miss, probably more miss then hit.

So this is considered a "Select premium TV from Samsung"? Seems like how they classified TVs as "premium" would always be changing then, since 4k and OLED are what I'd consider "Premium TVs" these days.

The F8500 plasma is Samsung's flagship plasma, which by the way won the 2013, and was a co-winner of 2014 VE annaual flat panel shootouts, so it's understandable why they would include it in their premium catagory.

Samsung PN64F8500

Displays are like 100% cotton t-shirts. Always buy a size larger than you think you'll need, as they tend to shrink over time.

I had the same experience with ABT delivery, the truck driver wanted me to rush the signature process and wheeled the TV into my door step. I tipped him to wait till I removed the package and powered ON and made sure it was working.

I had luck with an instore purchase on an excluded item
I didn't even realize the item was excluded until someone here on AVS asked me how I got the deal I did


Anyway...the exclusion was hidden in the fine print
The salesperson didn't even scan it at the store they just took the 10% off when I pulled out the coupon


Its worth a try in the store..others had the same luck I did with the Denon 4520 receiver deal a month or so ago

Would the Costco Warranty cover dead pixels or just major component failures?

It's a SquareTrade warranty sold through Costco. They post the two page policy on the site:

http://www.costco.com/wcsstore/Costc...Costco-TsC.pdf

And nope. Under what is not covered:

"Television or personal computer monitor screen imperfections, including "burn-in" or burned CRT phosphor."

I think you will find that best buy has the best extended warranty out there....AND it is also the most expensive per dollar of merchandise spent


Its actually better than the manufacturer warranty is

Once it shows up in your squaretrade account you simply upload your receipt from the authorized dealer you bought it from. Thats all. It covers the manufacturers warranty + 3 years. So 4 years total if you dont buy the tv from costco.

true
But BB warranty drops down as the price does
So..if you get one of these deals like others have gotten for sub $2K for a 64"...the warranty will drop as well


A couple of other considerations
if you think the Tv will ever be abused to the point where it will get burn in...and then need a new panel to repair it
OR
if you think you might want to resell the Tv in say 3 years...and receive the resale value lift due to the comprehensive warranty that goes with the TV




Then the BB warranty is your friend. if not you are better off with ST


I personally have a similar warranty to ST through my visa card...which is basically a manufacturer warranty
Had I bought the unit at BB I think I would have gone for the BB warranty. I have seen it make a difference when I sold a TV 3 years later

That's great advice lol, I think I'll take it, once it shows up time to unsubscribe from this and roll into to owners thread. I paid 2500 and I know others were able to go way under that, but that's ok I did the best I could nobody would price match the el cheapo internet sites for me

Is East Coast the only one online currently listing the TV below $2499? I was thinking of trying to get one of the local BB to deal on one, but didn't know if there were any other sites I can use in case they turn down East Coast TVs.

All authorized dealers will advertise the same price.

Well Pete you're obviously not alone but I will say this, you made the right choice buying early. I wouldn't want to take the chance and not get the TV that I wanted. This is the final month of production so it's too risky to wait any longer. Sure, some of the risk takers or procrastinators may get a better deal but there's A higher risk for TV availability and I have zero interest in buying open box TVs.

Amazon qty just dropped from 4 to 2. Best Buy said orders for the 64" were limted to 3, but not sure if that reflects the qty available. I got the same message for the 51".
