Typically how long does it take months wise before we start seeing price reductions? I'm in the market it buy one but can hold out a few months if it means better savings. I've been out of the tv market for awhile so I forget how long they go before pricing deals show up. Thanks for any info.

I just noticed that Amazon has reduced their "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com" price for the 64F8500 by $100 to $3397.99. I sure hope this is the start of a trend.

It also comes with a free 7" tablet now.

Thanks! I'm hoping for the major reductions but probably after summer I guess?


"major" reduction? think closerr to next year as the model closeouts start to happen. just my own humble opinion though...

They will usually have some moderate reductions during the summer between Memorial Day and Labor Day. But the best sales are between Black Friday and Superbowl Sunday. During Superbowl week and after they start having clearance prices as they clear out inventory in preparation for the next year's models. I would like to see the 51F8500 go to $999 by Christmas, but not too sure if it will go quite that low. But the 51E7000 went to $999 and even $899, but unfortunately there is no longer a 7000 version in the F series. I don't know why they chose to eliminate a more affordable top tier option. The 5300 and 5500 are a lesser category in terms of pic quality.

Why not just find the best price you see online (from a reasonably reputable retailer) and politely ask your local retailer brick and mortar to match it - stating clearly that you are prepared to take it right now if they can do it. Don't ask them to eat the tax or anything like that.


I got my F8500 for an incredibly good price and with all the bells and whistles of buying from an established and reputable retailer.

Does anyone know anything about AllTimeTVs? Their ratings seem really good and they have the 60" for 2,239 (and the 64 for 2689).


Also, what's this "authorized" bit -- does it need to be sold from a "samsung authorized dealer" to get a warranty or something?


Thanks,


Tom


*edit* a quick forum search reveals some warnings. Hrrrmph. Maybe I can get BB to price match...

Bb is holding tight to the $3399 price. Samsung is enforcing this.

Good advice CP. I agree that the BB is the best way to check out a businesses reliability. I don't trust other rating services.


Just noticed a very cool promotion on Samsung's high-end plasma and LED TVs. Free 29" LED TV, or wireless/docking sound system or sound bar w/wireless sub woofer. Decisions, decisions....

I'd prefer a cash discount. Waiting and wanting
