I agree with cos54. Join Costco. They have trial memberships (I think). You have 30 days from the TV purchase to get on board with Square Trade. The other option would be to extend the warranty with a CC. In the past, I have used Amex for this. Just confirm that the Panasonic original one year warranty is still in play, If you are buying from Best Buy, that should be the case (it was for me).
If they will PM the <$2300 close out prices being offered on new ones, I would consider that option. Where I live, there were no more available and I did not feel comfortable ordering from some of the web sites.
Best Buy has shown good customer service. If you have a problem, it's nice to be able to go in and talk with someone. In any case, the supply of VT50s is clearly diminishing. If you want one, you should probably pull the trigger...
