These guys are TOTAL bait and switch [email protected]
There are a couple you will get when googling for the best deals on tv. They are all the same, and are probably run by the same outfit.
The story is the same with all of them. Some variation of "you are buying an industrial / out of country model", and must pay more for the "real" model.
Once they have you on the hook with the charge, you will get jerked around on when the product actually shows up. They do not have the model sitting on the floor, and will attempt to source from their various grey market sources. If they can't find the product at the "upsold" price, you are not getting your TV, plain and simple.
I had a similar experience with this company. Luckily they were unable to charge anything as I put a stop with the CC company.
Any money you may save using one of these companies is not worth the heartache.

We'd read some posts saying it could be a bait and switch - and others that said the TV bar is legit. We found a great deal on a TV, and so we called TV bar directly before purchasing. After waiting on hold for an hour, we spoke with them, told them which model we wanted to buy and verified with them it was the right model (and for residential use, etc) and at the price they posted. After talking with them, it seemed legit, so we bought it.
Now, they tell us we bought their "commercial model" and need to pay $700 more to get the model we want, and that they, themselves!, confirmed with us on the phone before purchase. And of course, all of the other black friday sales are now over, so we're SOL. So, let any of your wondering be now confirmed. Thetvbar.com is not legitimate. I urge you to avoid them. Don't waste your time or your money. I am now waiting for a refund. If it does not post to my account, I will revise this post to let you know.
