Okay, so i didn't go in the next night and i actually went in today. I went into BB west side in Madison WI, and actually took the email from the east side BB store manager with me. In all of my excitement I didn't realize what store I had actually emailed. Anyway, I went in with very low expectations because I actually waited so long to go in and thought they wouldn't honor the price of $2449. I'm not sure where the manager got that price from because the lowest price I have seen was $2599. I showed the TV person my email and she told me that this wouldn't be a problem. I was calm the whole time but was screaming Holy SH*T inside. I did not have the guts to ask them to throw anything extra in considering this TV is selling for $3299.98 before taxes in their current flyer. I also purchased a Panasonic dmp-bdt220 for $78 (open box but brand new) and two pair of the Panasonic glasses. The sales lady said I'm pretty sure amazon has these on sale and she got her personal cell phone out and price matched amazon. I thought that was great and i didn't even have to ask about matching the price. (I also bought a warranty with the glasses and it covers both glasses or more if I buy the same brand, since they won't know which one I have the warranty on.) Best Buy has come a long way and I will definitely be shopping there again in the future. So with taxes I paid $2,822.07. IMO, I got an amazing deal even with buying a blu ray player and glasses. I hope that more of you have luck trying to get this TV. Here is the email I sent to store managers in my area:
I have been following the price of the 65 inch Panasonic TC-P65VT50
online. There is a website here
selling the TV for for $2599. Your current online price for that television is $3,699. I was wondering if you would match this price? I have also been following a forum at avsforum
that has several people that have bought the TV at that price from various Best Buy's. I appreciate you taking the time to look into this for me. I would come in personally and talk with an employee but I live a little bit out of the area and have been working a lot of hours lately.
