Panasonic ST50 Deals - Page 14

post #391 of 855
Does anyone know if Paul still has the 65st50 for $1999? If so, for how long. Thanks

(I really don't want to do the whole sign up thing just to see their price)

Also, when you ask amazon to price match, do they ask for a print out or something?
post #392 of 855
As of yesterday-- yes. Just create an account and add it to your cart.

Just call Amazon customer service-- tell them that you want to price match. Give them the website and they will take care of the rest.

How are you guys getting best buy to match amazon's price. they tell me that they only match local retailers prices. i live in a fairly small town, only a few places to buy panasonic plasma tv. Do you have to get the manager involved? I much prefer to deal wit a local store if possible. Both sears and best buy say the will not match amazon, any advise? any help greatly appreciated!

Try with the manager who will be the one to make the decision in any case. Take a print out of the Amazon price. Also, the manager will have to be able to get online to verify active price. Be super nice (which I am sure you already are), because it may be the manager's first time doing this in a smaller town. Explain your desire to buy local, but willingness to buy Amazon if he can't match.

I just ordered from Paul's I have a 60" ST50 coming Thursday it took 9 business days although I think TV actually arrived like last Thursday or Friday at the shipping place and figuring in tax I saved nearly $450 from Best Buy although I think the salesmen said he'd cut the price a little bit. The local shipping company called me and confirmed it's silver delivery and set up a time for shipment and they are expecting me taking it out of the package to inspect it before I accept it.

I'm going to have to assume if something is wrong they'll let me send and back and I'll get a new one since Paul's TV directly said to not accept it if something is wrong but chances are nothing is wrong I've never had a faulty shipment ever on anything I've ever bought online on like hundreds and hundreds of items I've bought online. I've never had to return something ever.

Cool, Thanks for the response. Update again after it's delivered and let us know how it went. Did you get the bundle packaged with it as well?

I actually didn't I'd only need one pair of glasses and I got a PS3 which is a great 3D blu ray player. Also, if you search hard enough on eBay, there is a guy who sells $300 worth of restaurant.com gift certificates for $16.

Did you get it?

Orderd a 65" ST on Tues and got Amazon to match Pauls price of $1999. Curiously they matched the price and didnt force the $100 white glove delivery on me! Tv is in route via Pilot to be delivered on Monday!
post #401 of 855
Personally I think I prefer Paul's TV over Amazon they used a local shipping company with a "silver" shipping package and they are aware with this package that I will be taking it out for inspection.

When I ordered from Tiger Direct a while ago and I'd have to assume Amazon might be similar the guy at the door was awestruck when I told him I wanted to look at it before I signed and was lucky he even allowed it.

Certainly not "Lucky", rather well within your rights. If you have not ever had to fight with a supplier and freight company over internal hidden damage, it is a mess and you, the consumer will end up losing, because you give up your leverage as soon as you sign the receiving slip.

I recently purchased a 65VT50 and took it out of the box and hooked it up to a BR player and looked for dead pixels while the delivery driver was still there. Heck he even helped me look. I ended up giving him$20 for lunch for his patience and generally good attitude. I told him as soon as I answered the door what I was going to do and that if he remained patient I would buy him lunch.

I just wanted to report another positive experience with Paul's TV. Their price dropped down to the same as my Panasonic EPP discount so I couldn't resist anymore. They don't charge tax in Texas (unlike Panasonic and now Amazon) and offer free "white glove" shipping. The only thing holding me back was some of the reviews on reseller ratings but as I looked through them, it appeared that most of the complaints were due to the buyer not reading and understanding Paul's shipping policy, which is about the same as all the other companies.

Ordered P60UT50 last Monday for $1249 on website
Had tracking info in an email the next day (shipped from Dearborn, MI by Home Direct USA)
Arrived yesterday (Saturday) - driver called about an hour before he showed up
Driver was very friendly and asked if I would like to help unbox it and plug it in
Came with a $100 restaurant.com certificate which might be cool if I can find a decent restaurant in my area that accepts them

For me, it was about as painless an experience as I could expect ordering a TV online.

I purchased my TV from Pauls (60ST50) on a Saturday and received it the following Thursday in Austin, TX. The TV was $1499 and the salesman threw in a pair of Panasonic 3D shades for $55.00 each ($79 @ BB). Shipping was free, I paid no taxes, and everything arrived exactly as expected. The box was 100% in-tact as if I'd gone to the store and picked it up myself.

I HIGHLY recommend Paul's TV after this experience and my experience at Best Buy being very lackluster. They fought me about a $100 price match between Best Buy stores and said they needed to check my recent purchases before they would consider anything. F. U. LOL!

Paul's delivered the TV as expected, treated me fairly and courteously on the telephone, and saved me almost $450 in pricing and taxes over Best Buy. ($1799 BB Price + 8.25% taxes = $1947) Well, well worth the wait!

Nice and effective way to handle it! Easily duplicated by us all.

He said city not state... the fact that you can't tell the difference between the two shows that you need to stop watching CNN. tongue.gif
post #410 of 855
Nice! cities are part of the state correct? Any city in Oregon and new Hampshire has zero sales tax. CNN is fox news light so.

Off-topic, but what municipalities in Canada have their own sales tax? Sales tax is provincial where it exists, with value added taxes (GST/HST) being national. Do cities in the US have their own surtaxes?

Comme on, where are the deals for a 60ST50! I need it before football season starts! Must be a labor day sale somewhere.
post #414 of 855
Anyone know of any B&M stores that sell the 60 or 65 and have it on display?

I'd like to take my 360 and play SF4 on it and see how the lag is. I know it is ranked fairly low but I need to see it for myself to see how low it is before I blow $1500+ on it.
post #415 of 855
As a reminder, Amazon will start charging sales tax for California residents on September 15. Paul's TV is still lower on some models, so it would be wise to get your pricematch requests in before the 15th.

$1400 for the 55 inch with a panasonic bluray player valued at 120-150$ and 2 pairs of glasses about $50 each

Is this a really good deal or should I wait for a better price
post #417 of 855
I believe the lowest advertised price so far has been $1199 (Fry's).

Yikes. Prices are going in the wrong direction for the 65ST50. Cheapest right now I can find is $2200 from Abt Electronics and that's just for the set. This was Paul's bundle price just a short time back.
post #420 of 855
The 65ST50 is no longer showing on Paul's TV

Amazon went up to $2313.99
Sears went up to $2999.99

Best Buy went down to $2099.99
