Just curious. I'm assuming US is goung to say it is out of their hands once the freight company picks it up. I'll post after I talk to them. Thanks again.

Yes, there should be no direct $$$ loss, it is just a hassle. You don't have your tv, and you have to reorder, and you have to wait some more, and the next shipment carries similar risks as the first, All these possibilities are remote, but possibilities none the less...

she might mind the 3k loss it cost for it when you could use that on something else assuming you have a family or something wink.gif

I did all the steps, however the 2 pairs of 3D glasses and DVD dont show up on the final page. Will BB price match and throw in the extras? How do you prove the extras?

Thanks

only shows up in invoice they send you after payment.
think they do this to thwart people from pricematching elsewhere possibly.
product page shows map pricing, with freebies

final checkout shows discount price without freebies.

mine will be here on the 10th! 10 days after ordering, between shipping and all.

3d 80" 3800 -4500

so i was referring to the coin your attempting to drop on a tv your spouse might not find it as peachy and would rather spend it on house upgrades or save it up or something

Losing your marriage for a tv is stupid also spending money you dont have is also stupid. if you cant buy it outright or pay for the majority of it means you are not in a good situation to afford it leave it alone and just wait and save smile.gif deals come and go eventually a deal will come around when your ready

Ummmm, just a thought, why don't you just buy the set from US Appliance? If you say that you are going to take advantage of the BestBuy 36 monthly payments, with no interest deal, then I doubt that you can afford this TV right now. You will pay sales tax with best buy. For me that would be 8.25% on top of the ~ $4,500. Care to tell me where I can earn eoungh inerest on $4,500 to even BREAK EVEN on the $371 sales tax hit?

Well, since you have the power of $4500, you could aruge with a mixture of high quality municiple bonds mixed with some "less quality" muni bonds you could conservtively be makeing today about 2% tax free. Thus compound that over 3 years and bam... paid your tax and you did your civic duty for god and country and saved best Buy from itself.

Nah my wife just feels that an 80 would be too big since we would use the tv in the room. We don't own our own house but I was just looking. I wanted to see if there were deals, but I'll have to wait until these deals fall in a place where I feel more comfortable purchasing it.

living in apt is not a deterant for not buying this tv i would i have seen a 70" in a stuido apt a guy had that my friend bought it was beyond oversized and dominated the room. if u can afford it and not struggle to pay a tv note or pay it off and its something your want buy it thats what you make money for if its pushing the limits of your budget and only you know this then downsize to a 60-70 and be happy your living life above 55" which is now becoming standard. Personally conns price matches and i could finanace it with them they already said they would do 4300 only like 100 a month if i wanted to dive in there but im as like most smart americans i wanna put down a nice amount on the tv if not pay it off nobody wants to make payments for more then a year at that point lts like paying a carnote all over again eek.gif

I can afford it. She just feels its a waste of money to get something that big for now. We live with my parents for the time being. I'm going to college to get my DPh. Ya I would rather pay it off than do monthly payments. I wouldn't mind having a large 80 tv. But I'm waiting for Sharps 8k tv to come out...lol I already know its gna be a lot but I have never ventured into the realm of the 80's tvs. In fact the TV's we have been getting are getting larger with every purchase. Next one should be a 46 and she'll get my 30 TV.

I would rather buy from a brick and mortar for a large purchase,can set up exact delivery date etc that comes with being a Premium reward zone member. I also get 2x the points with credit card(instead of extended terms)will pay for at least half the tax, the balance is what people are paying for white glove service, and free calibration.
Best Buy must see the writing on the wall, will match price with any authorized dealer.Just picked up my 2 free 3D glasses and free Blue Ray player as well as lowest online price.

Thanks for everyone on the list that helped me get the most out of my purchase.

I was definitely kidding about the divorce, but if you are implying that I can't afford the TV because I took advantage of BB's interest free loan for 36 months, then you are wrong. rolleyes.gif

Exactly why I went with BB price match. Good luck with your TV!

nope was not implying but one can afford anything long as they can make payments on it wink.gif. alot of folks like myself dont want to lay down 4500 cash you never know when your gonna need money so i can understand a half down half on card something like that

Got it! tongue.gif BB's 36 month no finance deal is too hard to pass up on a big purchase since you can choose how much to put down every month (as long as it is more than the minimum). I typically put in a 20% first time and then minimum payment until 2 months prior and just pay it off.

Commas and periods would be a great start.

Also, anyone who's living with their parents and not out on their own should not be laying down thousands of dollars on entertainment (a television in this case). Save your money and strike out on your own. I also feel that if you can't just write a check for something like this, you probably have no business parting with that much money. I'm not judging anyone, and this is an audio/video enthusiasts forum, but I wouldn't want to read about someone blowing all of their savings just to have more screen real estate. New alluring tech will always be available. Make sure your financial house is in order before you take a $4k+ plunge.

ok sure its just the internet sir moving on. I semi agree with your comment if you still live with momma then some of the right choices have not been made in life unless there is more to the story, maybe saving up for nice downpayment on a house or something i dont know but i would not take that 4k plunge for sure not being in my own apt or house. Also again CREDIT exsist for a reason sir, nothing wrong with buying and making payments on it long as you pay if off. I would put some money down. Some of us dont want to part with 4g at one sitting.

Since when did this become a financial advice column ... L O L ..
If the guy wants a 80" display then let him buy one , he just needs to get the best price .. better a HUGE display that snortin' 4K up his nose in drugs ..
..... L O L ...
GeeZ rolleyes.gif

If I had to live with my parents , then I'd want the escapism that 80" s of display envelopment would provide eek.gif

OK Rant over back to our regular PRICE discussions ............................................................................biggrin.gif
