I GOT IT! Thanks for everyone's input on this great deal!
Damn!!! Just got THE DEAL on Saturday. Talked to a guy at Tweeter Lewisville on the phone on Friday and set up the deal over the phone, went really smooth. Went all the way over there after work on Friday (okay, it's directly on my way home), showed up and talked to the exact same guy I talked to on the phone.
He goes in the back to get the unit, turns out they don't have the Samsung
in stock. I gripe at him for not telling me in the first place, he tells
me that all the other Tweeter stores in Dallas have it (which really annoyed me because I drove right past them to get there!)
I'm torqued off at them now so I go over to Ultimate Electronics and try and get the same deal, the sales manager I talked to didn't think he could get the deal so I left dejectedly. So the next day I call the Frisco Tweeter store, this guy tells me they're backordered, and none of the stores in Dallas have it... greeeeat.
So I go back over to Ultimate and try again because their newest add has a 2 room system for $399 with a Hughes receiver. See the same sales manager, start working with him and the store manager, between the two of them they figure out how to swap the Hughes out for the Samsung. What helped IMMENSELY is I had copied down the promo codes yall had submitted from Tweeter and it was completely smooth after I slapped those down on the counter. It was no longer a question of whether they'd match it, but how they were going to pull it off.
Only problem is, THEY'RE BACKORDRED ALSO! Then the sales manager mentions the Zenith model (which is basically the $699 Sony without the name) and they give it to me for the same price! So after they figured out the package, I ended up with a 2 room system with a Zenith HD receiver and the new Samsung regular receiver, and triple-lnb dish installed for $425. Yesssss.
Installation scheduled for Saturday and I'm STOKED FOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL IN HD!!!!! WHOOP! Oh and a lot of props go to the guys at Ultimate Electronics, they did good. Thanks again for everyone posting their help on this.
