Here is a pic of the Costco tag, maybe this will help with your price match at Sam's. I was able to get mine matched with my 90 day price protection where I purchased. YMMV...
I went by Sears yesterday, and they said they have them at their local warehouse for a July 3rd delivery for $3945. I went to Best Buy just after that and asked what kind of deal can I get on their $4495 price. They went to their computer and told me they can price match local prices and gave me a price of $3909, and I can go pick it up myself from their local warehouse today (Sunday). I asked for a better deal, so the manager came to speak with me. I had dealings with him before last November, after which I vowed never to shop there again, which I hadn't. He spewed the same nonsense that ticked me off before. I asked for a deal to compensate for the 8% sales tax so I wouldn't have to order from the Internet. He tells me I have to pay any sales tax when I report it on my State tax return, so I'm not saving anything from ordering over the web. In November in called me a tax cheat if I didn't give my State their due for any internet purchases I made throughout the year where I wasn't charged sales tax.
Sam's Club claimed they reduced their floor model from $4495 to $3954. I'm going to go back there to see if they will drop the price by the same amount from the Best Buy $3909 new in the box price. But if I can order from US Appliance or other source for about $3600, which is about the price I could get it from Sam's, not including tax, I'd rather buy new and save $300. Sticking an 80" TV back in the box brings the value down to about $3000 for me.
