To ZoyToy and Sheepnutz,
I'm a Rep with the Samsung Exchange & Refund Department. I've viewed your posting related to your supposed offers for:
1) PN64F8500AFXZA - $550
2) PN60F8500AFXZA - $450
Let me just say that those reported offers are nothing short of FALSE, especially given the timeline of those offers. The current MINIMUM offering price, for those TVs are:
1) PN64F8500AFXZA - $1,067
2) PN60F8500AFXZA - $900
I say minimum, because that is the lowest that we are authorized to go without extreme intervention; i.e Executive Customer Service, Office of the President. This assumes that your television is covered in the class action, and that it is an HLT/HLS model of 61" or greater in size. It also depends on the age of your television (i.e. the "In Service Date"). Neither of the above models have ever been offered at the prices stated above; NEVER!!. In fact, I'll go on a limb. If either of you, or any member on this forum, can produce a combination of:
1) Credit card statement showing the amount stated, as well as the charge being initiated by the appropriate Samsung department.
2) The packing slip that accompanied the television, clearly indicating the amount charged.
3) The email confirmation, clearly stating the price paid, and indicating that the television is BRAND NEW, and not classified in one (or more) of the non-new television categories.
If all of the above are produced (pdf, jpeg, gif), then I will match those offers to anyone with a qualifying television set. That's how confident I am that THOSE offers were never made at THOSE prices. It's ironic that the above quoted offers are exactly (or near) half of the current offer prices. We, at the Exchange & Refund Department, are only authorized to make the offers that I quoted above, and have no authority to go below those prices; again, not without the interventions listed above. In some cases, the authorized prices can be as high as:
1) PN64F8500AFXZA - $1,700
2) PN60F8500AFXZA - $1,500
Of course, that assumes that you have one of the "older" qualifying models. With the "new" qualifying models, the current offers are $1,067 and $900, respectively. I challenge anyone to prove otherwise.
