My 75" Q9FN has a yellow line thag ill be doing a warranty claim for soon. A friend recently had a 65Q90R swapped with warranty and the warranty guy who came to his house said he had another client that was able to get Samsung to swap out his broken 75Q9FN for an 82Q90R. I'm gonna try a similar trade, maybe even offer to pay a small upgrade fee.

Man, I sincerely understand how you feel. If I’d known it was just going to be a flash in the pan price drop, I wouldn’t have bothered posting. I wish more of you would have been able to benefit, that was the intent. Glad GoCubs was able to get the benefit (I live in Houston, BTW).

FWIW, this TV has greatly exceeded my expectations so far. I’ve been burned by Samsung before, so I was skeptical. I do wish it had Dolby Vision, but that’s pretty much my only knock on it.

It looks like a short pricing error, since it didn't seem to even last long enough to get picked up by the price trackers. Typically these TVs fall $1k or more in retail price during the year. Last week was 15% cash back through Ebates at Dell, and similar offers will happen again this year. I think anything less than $4.5k ($2k or 30% below original retail) will probably end up being a pretty good deal in 2019. To me it looks like a brief screw-up, since the 82" Q8FN deals were still reported as hundreds more than $3.2k a few months ago, I figure sometime in 2020 might be expected before these things are really selling for under $4k from an authorized retailer.

I called Amazon about it. Not a pricing error. They were just clearing stock. They got more in today but the price is back up.

I fully expected a cancellation or 65" to show up. Clearing stock at 51% off, I'll take it

I would have definitely jumped on that price for the 82" if I hadn't found my deal!

I don’t know if are aware of the education discount Samsung is offering to instructors and students when buying from their site. The 82” Q90R goes down $700 to $5299 if you can provide a .edu email. Also available for other sizes and models, hope this helps someone.

Try creating an account with your work email (https://shop.samsung.com/sg_epp/welcome). Samsung has a relationship with a good number of companies.

If you know anyone with a .edu email that will let you use it you can get the student discount. You really don't even need to be an active student (you can use your college email if you still have it), all Samsung does is send a verification link to the .edu email and you are off to the races. If you are interested in the Q90R talk to Chris at Cleveland Plasma, last I talked with him he was able to beat the the 82" Q90R Samsung employee discount price but not the Q900R pricing.

Not sure why your discount is showing less, I am the one who provided those numbers to Ray and they are indeed still accurate from my view.

Yep, looks like it is $5499 on Samsung without EPP. With EPP it is still at $4,599.99

Last week Chris from Cleveland Plasma was even able to offer me a better deal than that. Keep in mind his prices can fluctuate daily so he may or may not be able to still provide that deal. If you aren't interested in the Samsung upgrade program I would give him a call to see what he can do for you:

He is a great guy. When I bought my X940C a few years back with no visible box damage and the screen turned out to be cracked it was a no hassle, no questions asked advanced replacement resolution. Very good customer service.

haha yeah, I am jealous I would have gotten an additional 5% off with my Prime credit card on that deal too!
I doubt the end of life pricing next year will be much better than the deal you got from Amazon.

I was tempted to switch credit cards but I clicked buy so fast it put it on a different card. I didn't want to take a chance over. I still got 1.5% back though.

Yeah. I could see these sets bottoming out at near $4000 USD so pretty comfortable sitting at $3200

Jealous too. The best deal I have gotten was $4700 taxed and shipped. So by looking at prices at Christmas time I should be at $3200-$3500.

I'm not familiar with this set in particular, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that. Maybe at their end of life, so in a year from now... but I highly doubt they'll drop that low for the holidays.

When you have been buying / watching TV's as long as I have you learn the price cycle. I actually believe TV prices are going to plummet LCDs are going to have to adjust as OLEDs keep getting cheaper. Not to mention TCL and Vizio are starting to squeeze the market even tighter.

You might be right. Only time will tell, I suppose. I feel that past data is hard to use though because this market is crazy, especially with the technologies changing so much over the past decade or so.

As far as OLED's go, yes they are getting cheaper, but I think that's because people are starting to learn about their deficiencies. Personally, when I was ready to replace my 8 year old Plasma last year, I was thinking OLED or nothing. Now, I have zero interest in OLED and it has nothing to do with burn-in.. rather brightness, banding, among other small things. So I don't think LCD's are dropping due to that.

However, you might be right regarding TCL (and perhaps Vizio) competition. Still, until the likes of TCL and Vizio can compete when it comes to upscaling, which as we know is absolutely key for 90% of consumers out there, they still can't *really* compete when it comes to these high end sets such as the Samsung QLED, higher end Sony's, etc. Yes the PQ, PQX, etc. have their place even for certain high-end users. However, most of us out there that have 2 grand or more to spend on a TV, and are willing to, are more like myself and want a set that won't let them down when it comes to up-scaling and/or processing, motion, etc.

Anyway, I don't want to turn this thread into a debate about which TVs are best or most worth it, so of course I'll accompany my post with a big ol' "to each his own." This is just my two cents...

The Q90/900 seem to be following the Q9 pricing profile from last year. First no discounts. Then early may slight drop. Late may bigger drop. Early June price increase back to the early May number. If pattern holds, price will drop back to the Late May number, and then in Late July/early August make it's largest drop, to date, for a short time. The price will then bump back and forth between this low and a number somewhat lower than the late May number until pre-Superbowl when it'll hit it's lowest point.

While the price went back up, on all three Q90R sizes Amazon lists 15% cash back if you use your Amazon Prime VISA, effectively bringing their price on the 82" to $5,100 pre-tax.

(Of course, if you click on the "Learn more" link after that 15% offer blurb, the page shows the discount as applying to 4 different Q60R, Q70R and Q80R sets, but no Q90R sets are listed, so perhaps chat with an Amazon rep to confirm before pulling the trigger.)
