Not true-You still get year 2 extended by Costco after the 1 year manufacturers warranty, then Square Trade covers years 3-5.

Not true- if you didn't buy TV from costco, costco does not extend the warranty by an extra year. (You can still buy the warranty even if you didn't buy the TV from costco. You will get a total of 4 years warranty)

I've read it over several times now. I can't find that anywhere. Where is that stated?

I purchased a TV from Paul's TV and a Square Trade Warranty from Costco for $99.00. It's good for 5 years.

When I registered my ST warranty online I bought from Costco for my Best Buy tv it shows 5 years of warranty for me also.

Costco only gives the second year of coverage, only if you buy the TV directly from Costco. They do not give a second year of their own "Concierge" coverage if you buy it from somewhere else!

However you can buy a 3 year Square Trade warranty from Costco for $99, no matter where you buy the TV from.

And yes, it only covers it for 3 years after the manufactures warranty expires! Which with the manufactures warranty of 1 year, and the Square Trade's 3 years, you would have a total of 4 years, not 5.

As per.....

I'm in the exact same boat. I'm going to print out page 79 of this thread, and also BuyTVToday website and see what they can do. Luckily, I have at least 3 BBs I can try and negotiate with.

Cleveland Plasma is $2550 + $100 shipping= $2650. I waited to long as well. Just kicking myself......very hard.

Now click on your warrantied item (Panasonic Plasma TV) and then drill down into the contract ("View Contract" at the bottom, tiny link). For me, I find this:

Coverage Amount: Item Purchase
Price Coverage Term: 5 Years
Protection Plan Price: $99.99
Coverage Type: Standard
Coverage Starts*: After Costco Concierge or manufacturer's warranty expiration, whichever is longest.
Covered Product: Panasonic Plasma TV
Coverage Ends: 3 Years from coverage start
Deductible: None
Waiting Period: None

I don't get Costco Concierge coverage because I didn't buy the TV from them. So my coverage starts after the manufacturer's warranty expires, which is one year. And it ends 3 years from coverage start. So I get four years coverage, not five.

I'm pretty sure if you use an AmEx card to purchase the TV and warranty you will get 5 years coverage either from manufacturer, Square Trade or AmEx. Call AmEx to confirm.

If you purchase the TV outside of Costco with AmEx, you'll get manufacturer's warranty 1st year, then AmEx and Squaretrade overlap for year 2, then Squaretrade covers years 3 and 4

In market for the p55vt50, as a newly US resident its kinda different buying here. Used Google Shopping to locate lowest price which was Buysquad.com, 1500usd and had good reviews, placed order. Order status was "pending" for two days, called them up and they said their company didnt deliver to my location (SF Bay Area)...

Went to my local best buy for PM, they didnt, still wanted 1999+tax. Tried ordering from Abes of Maine, 1618usd in free shipping. Day after i placed order they called to confirm, mumbled something about the free delivery was curb-delivery(!?) and recommended white glove for another 250? talked price "down" to 1780. Got back to their homepage where white glove was 150? Got a feeling they just throw numbers around, also a "5s break" to "discuss with manager" did another 50 bucks... Went here and saw ppl had success with BB so will try them again, cancelled order at Abes of Main. After 20-30min waiting in line and another 10 for them to try convince me not to cancel....


Feels like even if BB maybe is a little bit more expensive, you at least get the TV. Online shopping in the US seems to be a few years behind, but i suspect the size and all different states makes it harder.

edit: If BB decide to match any price below their 1999USD, will tax apply on this?

most of the time when you PM, it's pre-tax. It's not quite the same as buying a car here and negotiating out the door price (everything included).

Double check with AmEx to be sure but it should work that you get manufacturer warranty first year, then Square Trade years 2, 3 and 4, but because you used AmEx to purchase warranty, AmEx will cover year 5. I have done this with AppleCare and made a claim almost a year after AppleCare expired. AmEx was very easy to deal with, credited my CC for the estimate I got from Apple for repairs and did not require me to have repairs done which I did not. AmEx will double the warranty but only up to a maximum of 5 years total, so if you have an existing warranty of 4 years they will cover the 5th. You're basically extending the the extending warranty with AmEx. Things might have changed at AmEx so call them to confirm.

i'm pretty sure my Discover IT card and CitiCard Platinum both do that as well, might be worth looking into for people who do not have an AmEx.

I bought my tv from BB. If I got to costco's online site and check out with the Squaretrade warranty, how do I apply it to my TV? Is it something you then have to go to squaretrade's site to do? Just trying to make sure before I buy this.

After my nightmare with my Samsung plasma I definitely want the warranty.

You'll get an email from SquareTrade titled "Your SquareTrade Warranty Purchase on Costco - Finish Set up" containing a link to complete the set up. You'll register on their site and have the option of emailing or faxing them a copy of your receipt.

Ive bought one before, but never had to use it. It was on something else though. I usually do display warranties thru the manufacturer or Mack.

I was going to buy the Square Trade warranty from Costco but after reading the reviews on Amazon I'm not so sure. It seems that the warranty repairs are capped at the purchase price of the warrantied component. So with my 60GT50 any repairs would be capped at $1699. I guess that amount of coverage is good for $99 but I'll have to give this some thought. There is only a $5 surcharge for not being a Costco member which isn't too bad IMO.

correct, essentially you get whatever you paid for the TV in repairs with SquareTrade. so if your first repair costs $300 and you need a second repair that costs $1500, but you only paid $1600 for the TV instead of getting a repair you get a refund of whatever is left after the first repair. so $1600 - $300 = $1300. that only applies if your repair is more than whats left of your warranty. if you needed three $500 repairs before it needed another repair you'd only get back $100. its sort of a gamble i guess, but what are the chances of a TV needing that many repairs? plus would you really keep it after a 2nd repair?

Almost sounds like a "bait and switch" Makes me a little nervous. Purchased My VT50 65" on 2/19 and pushed the delivery back from this week to 3/20 because I'm waiting on wall unit to be built and installed. Just checked the BB web site and they are still offering them for sale so would assume they have them in stock.
Glad I purchased when I did as it seems the prices are going up instead of down because of short supply.
Can't wait to see that baby hanging on my wall!

It is not at all a "bait and switch". I am sure the terms are clearly spelled out on their site.

Best Buy does still have 65VT50 in stock. There may be certain stores that run out from time-to-time, but they are still available. This will not be the case for long though.
