My [email protected] shows reduced prices (same as EPP). Are you sure you are logged into your [email protected] account and not a standard account? If it’s anything like mine, your employer should be referenced in the top left corner of your screen to confirm you are logged into [email protected]

Mine shows a consortium that my company belongs to, Silicon Valley something or other. I don’t think he’s actually logged in to a [email protected] account either since the prices are the same as the posted EPP prices. You and I blazed that trail already. Did you get your tv yet?

And I'm looking forward to hearing how it works for you. So much bad karma in the Q90 owner's thread by people who haven't even seen the tv yet, let alone own one. The wolves have been howling over this TV for some reason.

Does anyone know when this EPP sale ends? I ask because i would prefer to wait a few weeks to see if the first batch of shipments have bugs in them.

This seems odd to be giving steep discounts for brand spanking new models.

ALSO just fyi if your company isnt part of EPP, try a student account.

There’s no date listed - for weeks it’s just said Limited Time Offer (at least on my account).

THIS IS NOT A DRILL

75" MODELS ARE ALMOST UP. NO PRICES YET




Even though I am highly certain that the Q80R 75" will be $3,397 after the 15% discount. Not sure I can pull the trigger at $3500 after taxes.

Prices up.

Discounts live.

20% off Q90R or $3999
18% off Q80R or $3299

Can't check out for some reason...

eBates is only at 3%. Probably going to wait the prices out.

Q90Rs are now showing for me on Employee Perks website (Samsung is direct partner) for 20% off AND 36 month 0% interest.

$2599 for 65 Q90R
$3999 for 75 Q90R
$5299 for 82 Q90R

I will need to see at least a few initial reviews but if this is at all competitive with OLED then a 75 Q90R is in my future as I get a discount on Samsung sets but not LG sets.

I think this question was asked before but I didn't see an answer: does anyone know if Best Buy price matches these EPP prices?

Damm, only 18% on the Q80r 75"...the discounting on the 65" models are so excellent. Even the Q90r 75" has 20% discount on it.
Paying $1400 more for those 10"...

I have a 65VT30 so I'm two plasma gens behind you and it's time for 4K this year.

It's either the Q90R for me or the C9 LG as I want as much future proofing as possible with regards to things like EARC, HDMI 2.1 features, etc.

The discount on the Q90R is pretty deep and the 3 years to pay it off sans interest is the icing on the cake.

If the PQ is even 90% as good as the C9 I'm probably in on a 75".

I have a 65VT50 I use upstairs that is still going strong. I'm looking at the Q80r to replace the 61" DLP downstairs that is 14 years old.

Ah makes sense. This is technically my first real TV. I always used budget models, jumped to P75-C1, that was a bum, so I returned it and waiting for one to blow me away.

I dont have access to the US EPP. However, have access in EU, and we havent got the new 2019 versions ready to buy. But what about the 2018 models, have they dropped in price on the US EPP after the introduction of 2019 models, or are they priced at the same level as before?

It’s in my cart and will let me check out but I’m holding off since I didn’t realize q90 is missing most HDMI 2.1 features.

Is this completely safe to use? I can save $1000 on the Q90 75inch with this I’m concerned since it feels too good to be true.
I’m new here.
