File a complaint to corporate with everything outlined they will probably throw in delivery or that store manager gets a not so great phone call

Black Friday Pricing:

65 C8 = $2999.99
55 C8 = $1999.99
Might need to include where these Black Friday pricing are. But good deals.

The question for me will be, if the Vizio P55-F1 goes to $899, is the OLED 55" C8 worth paying double the price for? Do you get double the image quality?

That's BB or gibbys?
That will be all authorized national retailers. People that are not in the business don't understand that LG enforces Minimum Advertise Pricing (MAP) for all retailers. Retail prices may change or stay the same as the previous week and this all takes effect every Friday. So it is not the retailers that are dictating the retails, it is LG that is. Discounts are funded through back-end rebates and that's why legit companies like Best Buy will not price match a retailer like Gibby's who was late to update the retail price.

That's up to you to decide... but man once you see the picture on the OLED and compare it to anything else... I went with the P65 last year and while it's a great TV, everytime I see an OLED now I'm like daaaaaamn....

It depends on what you're used to, for me the P55 looks amazing. For someone coming from a B7, they might feel wanting.

...

Fortunately there's the best of both worlds in the Samsung Q8F.

Pretty tough to quantify, but I think it’s a given that there are diminishing returns with higher end audio/video products ...and almost everything else in life. :)

Gibbys is an authorized retailer for the LGs. So regarding BB, if they want to stand behind their own policies, should price match and beat any price from Gibbys.

their price protection has enough wording that they can get out from any price match.

They will just claim under the following clause

The product’s price must not be lower due to an advertising error, misprint, or special sale price.
Special sale prices include: VIP SALE, Black Friday, Friends and Family, Cyber Monday, Boxing Day/Week, special educational prices, restricted offers, mail order offers, rebates, coupons, premiums, free or bonus offers, Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) prices, open box products, close-outs, liquidations, clearances, demos, refurbished items, open box items, and financing offers.

Sure thing. I was just speaking from my knowledge and from Best Buys stand point. I know for a fact that Gibby's price staying at the lower price point beyond the Friday was either an honest error or by purpose. All retailers know the retail pricing structure a month in advance. So they will deny price match based on that "error". But yeah, it sucks as a consumer since we expect them to stand by their policies.

The cheapest you can get the C8 55" is still at Visions in Mississauga for $1800?

My question isn't just that, but if the P-Series is 900 and the X900F is 1100, is the X900F worth paying another 200 bucks for? Is it worth it for the better upscaling, HDR and consistency and reliability?

OLED is pretty awesome though - picture is markedly better than LED.

All qualities get exponentially more expensive while functional value increases at a diminishing rate. An OK TV to a good TV costs a medium amount and you get a significant jump. A good TV to a great TV costs a large amount and you get a smaller jump. Just have to decide where that price/value point is for you!

Diminishing returns hit hard. This is why I created the Vizio P-Series thread, I believe it's a great value-for-money compromise, especially with the Costco return and replacement for faulty sets.

I definitely wouldn't pay for a Vizio if the difference is $200 more for the X900F. I don't think the 55" X900F will be as low as $1100 though. More likely $1200. And it's still worth the extra $300, in my opinion.
