[Costco] Hisense 65-in. 4K HDR Roku Smart TV 65R6209 $599 Shipped RESTOCKED 4/6

Costco has these well liked Hisense Smart budget TV's for $599 shipped for the first time in a while. They have been at $799/$699.
Usual Costco benefits for members 90 Day Return, 2 year warranty and $60 for an extra 3 years (5 total).
Limited quantities online. Available online only.

Also if you bought one recently for more, call in for a price protection refund while there is stock. Definitely within 30 days of purchase, possibly within 90 days but very YMMV. I believe that there is an online price correction request page also.

Restocked today 4/6 with 30 units.

Nice, just pulled the trigger on the 70" yesterday at $797. Not sure if 5" is worth $200, but not worth the hassle now.

Yeah I sent a cancellation request (the self cancellation button is only available the first hour after ordering), hopefully they get to it before it ships.

If not, and you get both, you can have them pick up whichever one you decide to not to keep. I believe return shipping is still included by Costco.

This is the same price as it was in December and January. Don't feel rushed to buy it. I'm still waiting for that sheer drop in prices once the pandemic really hits.

Much better. I have the R6109 and a Series 4 and I find the Hisense to have much better uniformity, brightness, and less DSE in darker scenes. The R6209 is an upgraded R6109 with the addition of a slightly newer chipset and Dobly Vision support. At this price it's a steal.

Finally pulled the trigger on this. Been waiting for this price for a while. Added the 3-year warranty too.

Thanks Op!

EDIT: Also, does anyone have recommended calibration settings for this TV? I was looking on Rtings, but they do not list this model (unless the US version has a different model?)

The 55 works better for me
I believe that most Costco's stock the 55R6209 in store. Not sure what they are priced at currently,though.
The 55R6109 is the previous model, which did go as low as $299, when the stores were clearing them. The primary difference is the lack of HDR10 support in the 6109. Whether HDR10 support is important to you is the question. IMO most budget TV's don't usually have the peak brightness and contrast to really do HDR as it was intended anyway, so it's value may not be as important as some may think.

You guys think extended warranty worth it?

My 2-3 year old 55" version is still running strong (picked up 5yr warranty for $30 which is roughly 5% of TV cost).

$60 warranty here would mean 10%.

Do credit cards provide any extended warranty beyond Costco's 2 years?

I don't think credit cards extend to 3 years. I believe they typically say they extend the warranty for 1 year beyond the manufacturers warranty and it is Costco, not the manufacturers who are offering the second year.
Personally I am a fan of their cheap warranty extension for budget TV's. Really a personal choice though, unless you have a crystal ball, the choice is just guesswork.
I like the idea that if the TV dies in that 3-5 year range that I will get full a credit or refund to buy another upgraded cheap TV with another 5 years. If the things crap out every 4-5 years you may not have to buy another TV for a long time, and if the TV does last longer than that, that $30-$60 at least ensured you of at least 5 years of use, no matter what.

This is more comparable to the 4 series.
The 6 Series has high peak brightness, multi zone local dimming etc., so real HDR performance.
Good choice for those looking for high end features and PQ on a budget.

Probably fairly similar PQ, but that 7709 uses the Hisense Vidaa U operating system that does not seem to get much love from users. At least with Roku you can assume that their OS smart features and apps will get updated for a while. Less important if you plan to use a Firestick or Chromecast anyway.
Return policy is also a big plus for Costco too.
