I checked out BBY last night, the only openbox/clearance stuff they have is a 71 series, which lacks many of the things I am looking for. They said that the 82 and 84 were new and not clearance/discontinued like other have said.
How do you bargain down an 82 series? I have a 12% off coupon, but he was pretty adamant that he wouldn't just come down in price, I even mentioned that I bought my 52" Toshiba dlp there and he didn't budge.
Also, one thing that sucks was that BBY apparently has changed it's open box policy, they are now giving out gift certs with OB purchases. This is pretty disappointing, considering the 71 series was missing the mic, remote, manual, and ipod connector. I am missing all of that and the best you can do is a $120 gift card? No thanks.
Anyway, I need some advice on how to get this thing below 1200, my wife's cut-off is 1000.
