Any GT50 deals out there?

post #1 of 406
Thread Starter 
Bountii shows J&R has the TC-P60GT50 on pre-order for 2399.00, but their shipping is pricey.

Nothing on Amazon yet.

Google shows TristateCamera has it for 2194.96 with free shipping. Getting closer!

Any other deals out there?

Haven't seen any price deals but you can get 2 free 3d glasses!

Looks like the best deal right now is though Panasonic's EPP offering available to many through employee benefit plans at work. I'm seeing free shipping, a reduced price (discount depends on model and size) and a freetalk HD skype enabled camera (for free) - as a pre-order of course. Most in stock models also are eleigible for the 2 free 3d glasses offer, and are said to ship in 2 - 3 days. Extended service plans are also available for a discount on select models.

I really want a TC-P60GT50, but it is very tempting to go for the in stock TCP60ST50.

I see you mentioned the 60" but I thought I'd note best buy is listing the 50gt50 and the 55gt50 as on ''sale'' for $1619 & $1899 respectively.

Those are GT50's.

The EPP prices are on the order of $200 less than the BB sale prices, and include free shipping, free webcam and free 3d glasses.

Any feedback on Buy Best Displays? They have low low prices on the 2012 Pannys. Today I found that they had two TC-P60GT50's listed. One at $2199.99 with a 'buy' button, and another at $1699.99 with an order button. Based on Panasonics EPP pricing, that's got to be a mistake. I picked up the phone and called them. They said go ahead an order at the lower price, as they have already sold 80% of their first allotment. So I did. Apparently it's an email type thing where they call you back within 24 hours to get credit card info. We'll see. With shipping and all the EPP will probably be the way to go.

Update - some searching uncovered that these guys used to be BuyBestPlasma. 'Nuff said - EPP for me.

Panasonic.com now shows all 3 65" Plasmas (ST, GT, and VT) in stock! EPP pricing has come down a bit too, but only a couple hundred off street pricing (adorama). The EPP for the 65" VT is less than what Amazon wants for the 65" GT.

Looks like the only remaining pre-order at Panasonic is the 55" VT. Exciting times.

How much is the EPP price for the 50st50?
post #13 of 406
Price on P60GT50 just dropped to $2,339.99 at Amazon
post #14 of 406
Abe's of Maine has the 55gt50 for $1698.18. http://www.abesofmaine.com/item.do?i...55GT50&&kbid=*

Would be great if Amazon would price match. Tell Amazon about the lower price and they might change it if enough of us do it. Go to the feedback section at the bottom of the page. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00752VKFA/ref=cm_sw_su_dp

Amazon has the 50" GT50 for $1449

what is the EPP price on the 60GT50? I had a friend who works for Panasonic and gave me their friends and family pricing, but I wasn't sure if that was the same as EPP. It showed up as $2079.99 + tax on the F&F site.

However, I just found the same set on newegg.com for $2039.99 shipped ($300 discount automatically appeared in cart, no clue what the promo is), no tax charged. Obviously there are some drawbacks with shopping at newegg, but being in NY tax was gonna kill me from amazon or local B&M so I took the gamble. Is this actually the best price out there and do you all think I'll be safe buying from newegg? I buy a ton of stuff from them and always come out satisfied, but a plasma is a different kind of purchase.

I did use my AMEX card which extends the mfr warranty an extra year, and offers purchase protection up to $1000 on each item. Rounding out the deal I used FatWallet cashback which currently is 2.6-4% for newegg.

It's pretty late now so I am sure the order won't get processed till tomorrow. If there is any red flag I'm missing, or the price isn't worth it, please let me know. I think I've done pretty well though and hope some others can get in on the deal too!

The EPP price for the 60GT50 is the same as the F&F price your friend quoted. That checkout sale price at newegg is the lowest I've seen to date.
post #18 of 406
Well, good to know I at least scored a good deal value wise. Any thoughts on newegg as a plasma vendor?

FYI, the cashback through FW has already been reported to my account. Total came in as $54.67, so I am guessing that is around the lower end of their current cashback scale, but I'll take the savings all the same. Brings total down to $1,985.32 which would make this the first sub-$2K deal around!

order status w/newegg has been updated to "Packaging" and the credit card has already been authorized.

Great deal! As for ordering from Newegg, just be aware of their return policy. According to their policy, there is a restocking fee and you must report any damage within 48hrs of receiving the TV. Just determine whether your comfortable with these things and if its worth the $180 - $200 in tax savings.

Great new is that Newegg is a vendor that Amazon price matches. So for anyone that prefers Amazon can order fm there and have it price matched to Newegg.

Cleveland Plasma has the 65GT50 for $2800, that's the lowest I've seen so far. Does anybody know if Amazon will price match Cleveland Plasma?
post #21 of 406
Cleveland Plasma is not on their list.

Yesterday, I called Amazon and they matched Newegg price $2039.99 including 3-5 day shipping for P60GT50. Shipping soon.

Now we're talking! Well, not literally, but I will call soon - I am very glad to have the chance to throw some business your way given your forum sponsorship.

Amazon is now trying to be more competitive - now down to $2999.99.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

But still not close to Cleveland Plasma, which is still (again?) $200 cheaper.

I tried to get amazon to pricematch newegg for the 60" for 2039.99 but would only give a 130.01 credit because they said a comparable "white glove" shipping method on newegg is $169.99. :-(

I sent back an email saying if they would give me the standard shipping like newegg that I would buy it from them.

How is newegg's return policy on TVs?

Amazon has the 60GT50 for $2039.99 now when you add to cart. That's almost 22% off MSRP.
post #29 of 406
I ran into the same thing as brhinhart so decided to wait until Amazon would come close to $2k all in. Looks like i didn't have to wait long...just ordered mine and will be receiving it on Monday. Can't wait!

It's going to cost them more in long run. I ended up ordering a 60" e7000 that I received yesterday. I cant stand the buzzing so It's going back to amazon next week.

I'm probably going to order the gt50 but need to wait until they give me a credit on my amazon card so I have enough credit to purchase the gt50 interest free. I hope the price stays the same for a while longer.

I can't complain though because they have an awesome return policy and great prices still.
