If you mean Abe's of Maine, stay as far away as you can from them. Amazing that they are still in business with the scam operation they are running.

Yup, they are still riding the name recognition from years ago when they were good. From what I understand its Abe's only in name these days, someone bought the rights and now are running a scam.

Could you elaborate on buying from AAFES? Is that mail order (I mean, how do you get on base with no ID card?) Or do I have to bring my DD-214 with me or something like that?

This link takes you to the verification process. You'll probably have to upload a copy of your DD214.

https://www.shopmyexchange.com/veterans

Once you are verified, you'll be free to use the shopmyexchange website, which for most items, has free delivery to your home.

When the 65" set was still listed for $1798 on Amazon, I got an offer from Greentoe earlier this week for $1400. Overnight the set is now $1598 everywhere, but Greentoe is still trying to stick to $1400. I'm hoping for $1250 but I'd bite at $1300

Given that Amazon sells it for $1598 and using amazon prime card gives back 5% in rewards isn't it a better deal?
Or is it much easier to work out issues (e.g. dead pixel) with BB vs Amazon?

Yep, picked mine up + used a coupon for $50 off...OTD price is $1149.


Our 8+ yr old Panny Plasma finally gave up the ghost a couple of months ago.


Set this up on Saturday and am very happy with resolution.


Now I need to pick up a Ultra BD player.


Any suggestions?

Made a pact with myself not to order any large TVs online. Due to potential returns; correct. And yes we have Amazon Prime & their Credit card, but for me not worth the $80 savings

The 85 900F isn't showing in any of the daily ads.
I can't even find the 65 on the site anymore.

The 55" and 65" 900Fs sold out already. The 55" actually sold out halfway through the first day of the sale. The 65" sold out by the end of Saturday, I believe.

Quantities vary upon BX locations. Plenty of 65" X900F here in the PACIFIC.

SAD news. After a 2.5 week wait, my 65900F arrived at my GFs house yesterday - CRACKED SCREEN !! The driver helped unbox and power up. I helped him repack and load back onto the truck. It was a single guy and I'm wondering if he had a mishap handling such an awkward object by himself.

The crack was on the lower left hand corner of the screen and it looked like a baseball hit it and further cracks radiated out from there for a foot or so. There was some damage to the box, but it was in a different spot and did not penetrate the foam.

Delivery was by SEKO Logistics WAY disappointed.

At least the new sound bar got hooked up to her old TV and Sounds great.

I think, therefore I am single.

Nope; they never budged. I ended up finding a local guy selling a 5 month old LG OLED65C7P with only 585 hours on it for a killer deal I couldn't pass up. Been playing with and dialing in the new set all afternoon.

Happy T-Day. Best of luck!
