$2750 but call Rico or Mike at Kennedy and ask for the Hibbing price. They will also give KILLER deals on soundbars and anything else you need. Winking Face
Not in Ontario so I can’t take use those deals but typically is there room for visions stores to move a bit on Sonos soundbars ? Id like to pick up a Beam when I grab my oled or 900f in the next little while

NO. Sonos has VERY SMALL markups every other soundbar maker has huge margins.

That’s what I figured. They seem more along the Apple model of not wanting to have crazy sale prices on their stuff.

I can confirm that this $2800 price is available in Calgary as well. I emailed a few stores in Calgary and the Crowfoot location got back to me and said they can match the $2800 price on the 65" C8 but no free delivery.
Excellent. Both Edmonton and Calgary confirmed then.

I'd rather pay $4000 for a TV than $2000 for a phone, yet the iPhone XS Max will sell tens of millions of units.

No financing available either. The store I went to said they could do $2750, but only if I purchased warranty. If I was allowed to finance the TV, I would have taken the warranty, but since it was going on my card, I declined. I also had to find my own way to deliver. My Honda Crosstour was too small/narrow, but my dad's Lexus NX200t was the perfect size. The width/length of the cargo area in the NX was the exact size of the TV.

I think you can rent a van from Home Depot/Lowes for about $20. I think they charge by the hour too. It's been a few years since I've rented one, so I'm not sure if the cost has gone up or not.
Not sure if you can rent from Home Depot if you don't buy something there.

BTW, the 65" C8 box is a perfect fit in my wife's Toyota RAV4 Hybrid too.

Are you asking "how do you justify" because you want reasons to convince your partner, or are you asking "how do you justify" because you want to know how we could spend $4K on a TV?

The latter. My LG 65 4k is like $1,300. Don't know how I would pay triple just to get the OLED.

I would like some reasons lol.

I have a 4K LG right now that I got for $280 worth of RBC points (from an error 2 years ago).

My wife wants a TV for the basement gym. I was originally thinking of just buying a smaller 50" for that room, but now I'm thinking if I should just buy one of these 65" C8's for my living room and put my LG downstairs. We also have a 1080p projector with an 80" screen that I haven't put up yet.

How do I justify spending $3k on a C8 instead?

hey guys, so what's the best deal now for the 77' C8? i missed the CNE sale, then the best deal i could find was on amazon.ca, where it was listed for $9999 with a $999 coupon, bringing the cost down to $9k... anything else that would be more in line with the $7800 available a month ago? you'd think tv prices should only go down with time, not up...

I've been able to rent HD pick ups without buying stuff there. I used one to pick up a painting a few years back. Unless they've changed their policy...

This poster from 2010 on RFD states that in order to rent a van from Home Depot, he had to first buy an item from Home Depot that was big enough to warrant a moving van.

However, it's apparently that some Home Depot stores don't enforce that rule.

The LG OLEDs are a little over double that price, plus tax. You are in the GTA, and as mentioned, we in the GTA can get the 65" C8 OLED for $2750-2800. That is 2.1X the price of your $1300 TV.

All LG LCD TVs are IPS with horrible blacks. If I had to watch an IPS TV in a dark room regularly, I would cry. In fact, the comparatively poor blacks are mainly why I went from a 90" projection image (Sony VPL-HW45ES) to a 65" OLED. OTOH, my wife prefers the larger projection size. Mind you, even my projector was well over $2000, as it's one of the better ones.

Anyone want to buy a 2 year old 1080p Sony 45ES projector for cheap? ;)

P.S. I also own an IPS Sony LCD, and it's appropriate for its usage. It has lousy blacks too, but it's used in a bright room 98% of the time, so the blacks of IPS LCD don't matter so much.

I've been able to in the past. Depending on the day, you could be waiting a while for your turn to rent the van.

Hi Hibbing.
I ordered an hwn950 Samsung soundbar. Waiting for stock. Can visions Kennedy do better on price? If so I'd grab it there!
