Went to Paul’s TV Friday night and asked if they had any 55 inch VT50’s in stock. The sales guy said they didn’t but could have one within a few days from their warehouse. I had seen some on this site had been getting the VT50 55 for $1500 on line at Paul’s, but there were no more available, so I figured I’d ask about getting that on-line price. Sure enough, the Paul’s sales rep marked it down to $1499. After some more negotiating, he lowered the price even further, down to $1459. I wanted a protection plan, so out the door after tax the price would have been $1839.87. I put a $100 down on the TV as the sales guy had requested and left.
As it turned out, putting the $100 down on the TV was a great move, because I now had a receipt with a legit price from Paul’s TV. When I came back the next day with my wife to pay for the TV, they said they couldn’t get the VT50 55, but would swing me a nice price on a VT50 65. At this point I felt I was being played, so I decided to try Best Buy.
Later that evening I called our closest Best Buy with a Magnolia store. Over the phone, the best they could do was $1599. Today, I went to a different Best Buy (not a Magnolia store) and they didn’t hesitate on matching Paul’s $1459 price.
So, due to my work schedule, I gotta wait till next Saturday for delivery.
