Damn! I just saw my cart on Amazon and it says that the price of the VT50 55" increased by roughly $400! Why is this going the opposite direction? I didn't realize that PaulsTV actually brought the price of the 55" down to $1795 a couple of weeks ago. I would have pulled the trigger for an Amazon pricematch. It probably only lasted a few minutes because they went out of stock. Amazon also ran out of the 55" and now have BuySquad selling it on their behalf but the price they are selling it on Amazon is much higher than on their own site ($1723). Don't know anything about the company but the ironic thing is that BuySquad is not one of the merchants listed in Amazon's price matching. I'm waiting for a back to school sale price war on this TV and it's crazy that Amazon price went up.
Checked other sites:
Abe's of Maine is selling it for $1,933.18 with LOYALTY15 coupon and a Free Flat Wall Mount ( Value $149.95 ) with FREEMOUNT coupon. Amazon doesn't PM AOM.
EastCoastTVs is selling it for $1690.50 with 2% off PAYCHECK coupon (good till 7/22/2012 MN). Amazon doesn't PM ECTV
Update!!: Just as I was writing this, I checked the pricing again on Amazon and it's still $2,230 but it's now sold by Cleveland Plasma. And it sometimes swtiches back to Buy Squad. Strange.
