Need some advice here: I'm interested in the 65" C7P, and have been waiting to be in-range of Black Friday, which is steadily approaching. I tend to be one of those typical AVS members who is neurotic about dead/stuck pixels and panel uniformity, so the ability to execute a "painless" return is all but mandatory for me.
Due to the above, my current plan is to either:
1. Purchase it now for the relatively standard price for $2999 at a site that is tax-free AND has good returns, like Crutchfield. Then execute price protection on Discover on Black Friday / Cyber Monday prices. Limit is $500 (as discussed often here).
2. Drive to a nearby state with lower tax and buy it at a Best Buy online with in-store pickup on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
Any issues I'm missing with these options? Any other suggestions?
