Samsung EPP

Does anyone remember at what point in 2018 the EPP discount kicked in for the 2018 QLEDs? I seem to recall that initially, while the 2017 models were still for sale by Samsung, the 2018 models were NOT discounted.

Since the 2019 QLED models were just announced. I'm wondering how long I'll have to wait in order to take advantage of EPP.

I'm referring specifically to Samsung's EPP discount that you can get by registering a company email address. For example, the 65" Q9FN was discounted down to $2799 , but I don't remember when that started (March, April, May, June?) I'm planning on a new TV soon, but I probably won't consider Samsung without this discount. I want to have an idea of how long I'll need to wait.

Actually, I'm talking about the [email protected] program. I thought EPP and [email protected] were the same thing, but now I'm not so sure...

Argh, Samsung EPP is 20% off the new models but they don't have the 75" for either the Q80 or Q90. Only the 65".

If anyone has Samsung EPP and wants the 65", I can't see it getting any better than 20% off right off the bat.

Q90 65" - $2799
Q80 65" - $2099 (wowza, 25% off)
Q70 75" - $2799

If that Q90 75" pops up for 20% off, I might spring for it. My wife MIGHT leave me

Damn, the EPP pricing on the 2019 TVs are fantastic. Didn't even know I had EPP till I tried. Thanks for the thread and waiting on the Q80 75/82" to show up as well.

Do you know if you can combine EPP with Samsung Upgrade program? (Not that I know anyone with EPP access).

Curious, why the 80 over the 90? Price?

Yea, price and that model has everything I'm looking for. At a minimum wanted the improved viewing angle and 25% off is great.

I should caveat, I don't know 100%, but from what I see on the EPP website, it definitely seems as if you can.

Samsung has 0% financing and if you add Ebates you get 3% cashback.

It's tempting, but no proper reviews are out yet for 2019 TVs. Won't it be a bit too impulsive to splurge on these before getting opinion from reviewers?

I wasn't 100% sure that you can do ebates + EPP. I was considering the 0% financing, but not sure I want to really do that, would rather just pay cash.

The only reason I would be tempted is because of the 20% off discount, it is most likely limited time deal.

I am trying my hardest to wait for reviews.

Samsung website indicates it's a limited time deal.

Where does it suggest that the pricing is for a limited time only? Last year, the pricing was pretty stable. For example, 65" 2018 Q9FN was $2799 pretty much all of last year, and only recently dropped to $2599.

BTW, is EPP and [email protected] the same thing?

Here is the Q90R, at the very bottom it states: "Price includes $700 instant savings - 20% off. Limited time only"

I am torn about purchasing myself without reading reviews... but the price does sound pretty great. I'm not a fan that they do NOT list the sale ends date!

It sucks that I get charged tax in Texas Out the door, the Q90R 65" would cost me $3030 minus 3% back from ebates ~$90 so $2,940.

That's a lot of cheddar on a 65". My Vizio 75" was only $2,100 when I bought it and now it is only $1,500. Granted, the TV is not very good, but still.

Thanks for posting this! Because of this post I searched [email protected] and found out I am eligible! And yes, the discounts are on [email protected]!

Also looks the Q900 is also elligible for any big spenders out there.

Anyone know if you can cancel an order between and ship date? I was thinking you could place the order take advantage of the discount, but could cancel if subpar reviews come out before ship date.

There is a need help button, click it and ask for live help. The reps are fairly knowledgeable.

Congrats! I’m looking to do the same. However, Samsung’s site keeps giving me an error message on the password change screen that pops up by default after I enter the temp password they sent 😞

I’ve tried a couple different days on different devices. I was wondering if the site was down, but sounds like others have been successful.

[email protected] must be different than EPP because I definitely don't see the "Limited time only" footnote.

IF Samsung gives a 20% discount on the Q80R 75", I may pull the trigger. I doubt its going to 20% but rather 15%. If it wasn't for freaking taxes, it would be at $3,400 OTD, but with tax its $3612.

I am really liking what Samsung is selling me on this model, but I want to see if Vizio can come to the table at $3,000.

I just hate waiting so long.

Honestly, I could just snag the Sony 75X900F at $2250 and be happy with that.

The temporary code they provide you is more of an activation code for your email address. Once you use the one time code you have to create an account. I used the “forgot my pw” option and it allowed me to create an account even though I never had an account. Hope that helps.
