It's great they post that but it's just not true. I can see how that would scare away buyers.

There have been many posts on this.

Another anecdote: My brother bought is E7 from an unauthorized seller and LG is going through the process of replacing his panel due to burn in (even a year after his warranty is up).

Also don't forget that most unauthorized sellers are still sourcing the TVs through authorized channels and play the game of getting you an invoice from the authorized distributor since it matters to a lot of people.

Just ask the seller how they handle this. Most already have a process in place to satisfy customer demand.

How does that even work? I don't get it. Does Greentoe work as not-for-profit?

"We're gonna buy it at full price, but since we're nice people were gonna sell it to you at a discount"
No. All retailers can sell at whatever price they want. They just cannot advertise a lower price to the public than MAP (minimum advertised pricing).

Beach Camera buys from LG, marks it up and resells it either to another reseller or to a customer. The reseller also marks it up and sells to customer. Think of the reseller (Green Toe) as a commissioned sales associate that doesn't work directly for Beach. Either way Beach has to pay someone to sell the product - either their own employee or the reseller.

In both scenarios the customer pays about the same price which is lower than MAP.

FWIW i just called and they said if it is from an unauthorized seller , it must go through "manager approval" so case by case basis?

Looks like Best Buy has both Sony A9G and LG C9 77 inch models at $4999 this week. Let the Black Friday posturing begin.

First time ever, that is interesting......Street price is still a pretty big difference.

If you go to their site directly, its not in stock either. My order went through at around 12PM EST today. I got the email confirmation. I wouldn't be surprised though if they tell me its not available. We shall see!
It shipped and should be here this week! Still feels weird paying that much for a TV...

Looks like the 65" C9 is on sale at major outlets right now. Seeing $2096 pricing at Best Buy and Amazon. I wonder what Greentoe deals are to be had now. Hopefully not too much lower than what I just got.

Greentoe.com is actually on LGs unauthorized list.



I suppose I could purchase a warranty from greentoe, but in that case it would likely cost more than what I could get elsewhere from an authorized retailer.



If I could get it for under $1000 through them, I suppose I'd consider taking the risk.
Greentoe isn't a retailer, just a middle man. All their TV's are from authorized retailers. Also I've heard never heard of someone being turned away by LG for not purchasing from an authorized retailer. I've actually heard plenty of anecdotes to the contrary.

That may well be the case, but when it comes to warranties and such, especially when spending $2-$5K, I prefer to know for a fact whether they cover it or not, not some word of mouth on the internet. Wouldn't a short phone call to LG be worth it just to be sure?

Greentoe gets a "finders fee" or kick back after the sale from the reseller.

I bought via Greentoe and it shipped DIRECT from an LG Authorized store with a complete receipt in the box. Registered with LG, full warranty intact.

I'll let you know. Jumped on the $1699 C9 65" eBay listing, and a shipment is en-route and scheduled for delivery tomorrow. Could be a box full of bricks, but something is coming.


At the time the total cost was ~$700 less than it would have been from a brick & mortar, so decided to take the risk.

I don't see them mentioned as frequently on AVS, but on photography equipment forums people generally do not have a favorable opinion of "Abe's of Maine". And I'm being polite.

I don't have any personal experience with them.

OK, now I can vouch for "five-star-buy" on eBay. An actual TV arrived today (not a box of bricks) and appears to be brand new and fully functional. The seller also pre-registered the set with LG, so odds are good that the warranty is intact. No up-sells, phone calls, or any other annoyances.



The TV was shipped FedEx Ground from Reno, NV, and it took exactly one week from purchase to delivery.


YMMV, but hope this is helpful to others considering an online purchase.
