Calgary - Soundsaround Liquidation Sale
Are these sales usually good? Does anyone have an opinion if it will be worthwhile to purchase a plasma TV?

As for plasma, their feature Philips 50" one doesn't seem like much of a deal at all... Costco has similar 50" for about the same if not less.

That's the other thing, BB, FS, Visions and AB Sound normally always put out their own CALGARY ONLY flyers for this weekend to, to compete with this sale.kringram wrote: Better off to go to FS or BB or visions and get a price match.

If history shows as any example, SS will advertise all specials in both the Sun and Herald on Wed...unless they've cheaped out on that too!T3rry wrote:chances are they'd all say its a limited time offer and you can't do it (AKA their screw the customer clause), also it's impossible for them to check stock so they won't match it, as soundsaround is often very limited... also they don't advertise some of the really good deals so the only way to see the deal is to be there.

Not in the Big4 building! Crap! That means I probably have to go to all three locations to find the stuffs that I wanted!robskot wrote:Ya, this is the BIG 4 sale...Cheaped out this year. I had called last week about getting passes to the pre-sale and they told me it is all just instore this year.
And as above...their return policy is COMPLETE CRAP! As for their Sales People, they used to be good, but as with anything in Calgary these days, you don't anywhere near the customer service/knowledge as you would've 5 yrs ago. Just all part of the huge labour shortage here.
But...all that being said, this sale normally boasts some awsome prices that is worth overlooking the above. Just make sure it is something you really need or really really want. If it is broken in the frist few days, you can get it replaced after a bit of arguing...but if it is after 7 days, you have to right to the manufacture. You CAN NOT return any thing for refund, just store credit.
I bought my TV from them during this sale 2 years ago, and I am very happy with it. The sales guy was a goof, but.... 6 of one, 1/2 dozen of the other....

Neg, last 3 years everything has been listed in the flyers...is normally about a 16-18 page flyer...they know exactly what they'll be having long in advance, as a pile of the product is previous seasons leftovers sold to them direct from the manufactures...or packages set up especailly for this...T3rry wrote:yeah, but what they advertise is only really a small sample of the deals they're having.
