I find that hard to believe.
I paid $1235 actually...frys was blowing out their inventory a couple of weeks ago for $1299...in store only sale price
Shoot me a PM with your email I will send you a copy of my receipt if you don't believe me
You should have seen what the 51D8000 and 59D7000 Plasmas were going for
all of these were about 1/3 of retail price...and ditto with a few Samsung and Sharp LED's and Panny plasmas as well
By the time I got to the store they had only the display...the sales guy said it had only been on their shelf about 3 months...as they had sold out of the TV a few times during the year and had sold their display model at about 3 different times
The story seems credible as the Tv had no marks..not even fingerprints
There were a lot of crazy deals on that week..
BB guy told me they were losing $700-800 per Tv at that price
I thought "outstanding"
I smiled and drove right over to Fry's electronics
what I probably should have done is ordered it online for store pick up when I saw the Indianapolis store had availability
They don't charge your card until you pick up the merchandise
But I thought I would go to BB and have them price match..BB was sold out except for their display which was a $1000 more than Frys
By the time I got back online the Frys website said sold out....so I drove to the store hoping their website was incorrect...all they had left was the display and they took an extra 5% off their current price
Those that live near a Fry's electronics know how crazy their deals can be
I think they must have a "loss" model to drive traffic..or they must buy large special buys with manufacturers for some of their weekly blowout type sales
who knows...but in any case I am not complaining...
