I guess each Costco is different, because I specifically asked about the 30-day price guarantee, and they said they could not do it. The explanation they gave me was that the $400 comes from Samsung, and that Samsung is particular about the purchase date.
However, nothing can stop you (and me) from returning it and repurchasing it, which is what I plan to do, except I'm not actually going to bring back the TV, just the barcode from the box. If they won't do it from that, I can just buy a 2nd one, and return it with the first receipt. If for some reason that won't even work... worst case, I have to bring the TV back in, but that would be worse for them than me, so I doubt they will make me do that.
On a different subject, I watched Casino Royal tonight on Blu-Ray and all I can say is WOW!! Even after having this set over a week, I was still blown away with the picture quality. I guess it doesn't hurt that I just self-calibrated today, but I could not believe the level of detail, color, and contrast of this set. Casino Royal is a pretty movie anyway, but I honestly think it looked better in my living room than in the theatre.
