Excellent $1000 off MSRP plus NO TAX & FREE SHIPPING on the 77” Sony A80J FOR ACTIVE DUTY, RETIRED and PRIOR SERVICE military members. AAFES/the exchange

$3499 SHIPPED
That’s a crazy price. I wonder why such a deep discount so soon. Have the upper tier Sony OLEDs ever been $1,000 off, even in the fall?

The regular prices at AAFES are the same prices that were posted by VE back in March. The 65" has already dropped to that price everywhere, but the 55" and 77" haven't. In other words, we should probably expect the 55" and 77" to soon drop to $1900 and $4000 respectively. I'm surprised by the AAFES sale price on the 77", but it doesn't seem quite as shocking when you think of it in that context (a temporary reduction from $4000, which will probably become MSRP soon).

FWIW, I saw on reddit that people were able to get good prices on the Sony models through Video Only. We don't have that chain in my area, but for people who do, it might be worth checking there. The specific prices reported were $2300 for the 65A80J and $3400 for the 65A90J.

So basically, you’re saying that we are seeing the summer price on the 77” a bit earlier than expected.

Yes I too believe the MSRP of the 77” will drop to $3999.99 in a week or two at all retailers and will stay at that point til Black Friday where it will most likely go to $3499.99

You may want to explain what AAFES is so us civies don’t think we’re going to run out and purchase at this price.

People can post deals from any retailer in this thread, but the OP that mentions an AAFES deal does say "FOR ACTIVE DUTY, RETIRED and PRIOR SERVICE military members."

For anyone that ordered this deal, where did yours ship from? My tracking info from fragilePak doesn't state that.

Video Only has the 83A90J available for pre-order at only $7k. They will also negotiate even lower than the price they have on their "sheet". I pre-ordered one today for $6,640 including a 5-year warranty (though their warranty doesn't cover burn-in).

Anyone who has a Video Only in their area should seriously check them out. They also are selling the 77A80J for $3500 (they might go lower, because that's just the sheet price).
