If you're feeling lucky, there's The Source's scratch-n-dent open box sale. I bought from that once and got a 55" 4k TV that was brand new with 0 hours of run time, for half of MSRP.

18% = GTA residents as a proportion of Canada's total population
97% = chance that an RFDer lives in the GTA when he posts something location specific, without giving a location

Were you hit with surprise customs/import fees on an Amazon.ca purchase?

So it's basically a gamble right? Because it could be dented and have scratches on the screen? How do you tell run time hrs?

Also, can you refund if you don't like it?

Less of a gamble is Bestbuy open box. Mint condition with normal return policy and warranty.

It's a gamble yes. And yes you can return it for a refund. "Scratch & dent" is more a marketing term I think. Actually the link I sent you was for the "Open box" deals, the "Scratch & dent" sale is a different, occasional sales event IIRC. My TV bought through scratch & dent was flawless. Modern TVs have a menu option that tells you what the accumulated run time is.

So both scratch and dent, and open box are returnable without restocking fee? At thesource

Yes, you get 30 days free returns for TVs up to 55". Bigger than that you can't return in-store, you have to arrange for shipping at your own expense. https://www.thesource.ca/en-ca/returnsExchanges
