Good deal! Maybe you could make it even better...return the protection plan and buy the SquareTrade 4 year plan through Costco's website (mo membership required I hear) for around $100! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:I went to Best Buy on Tuesday. I asked to get the 5% off per the deal Vizio's website was offering. The manager was fine with it but then I proceeded to ask about their 5 year protection plan. It was based off of a tiered pricing system and it was like 549.00.
I mentioned that amazon's 5 year plan was 249.00 and that I'd either pay that price or I would not be purchasing the plan at all.
Long story short, the manager ended up knocking the TV price down to 1699.00, which brought the protection down to 349.00.
Out the door with the 5 year plan, I paid 2200 after tax. I'd consider that a win.
