[The Source] Fluid FLD4900 49” 4K2K LED TV $305 W/FS

The Source has this new model of Fluid 49" 4K LED TV for $329 until 1/3 for $329 with free shipping. It is also available in store. The sweet spot for price to size is the 55" these days, RCA 55" 4K is still $368 shipped, but if you need a smaller size, this is a decent price.
The $25 off $100 sign up promo code and PSP promos work and I assume the CAA discount will also. Online $25 off for $305 shipped is probably the best you can do. In store perhaps you can get an agreeable rep to combine the $25 and another discount for another $17 off. YMMV.
Use a CC for the purchase for the extra 1 year warranty coverage included with most cards.

No it won't work online any more. Some people have successfully combined then in store, but very YMMV

got mine Friday, nice TV, still playing around with calibrations since last night as there seems to be none on line anywhere for this particular TV, tried settings for 55" RCA but a little dark, yellows a bit too strong.

Have you tested your 4K TV as a computer monitor? I understand that some 4K TV allow displaying pixels 1:1 (4:4:4, etc) via their preset modes (Game, PC, etc) so they can be used satisfactorily as a 4K PC monitor without having artifacts (pixelated/jagged/fuzzy text, proper color rendering, etc.) -- I mean, not for gaming (due to large lag) but for general use, particularly displaying text and icons (for coding, for example) in four 1080P tiled windows, etc.

Thanks. Yep already OOS online. Still in store stock here, but I guess that doesn't help if you only have one or two TS stores in your area and they are OOS.

Copying calibration between sets (even from same make and model) serves no real purpose and you are better off just eyeballing changes.
Just download the calibration material and follow the AVF procedure (linked in the OP of the owners thread below), not 100% accurate but pretty simple and will certainly get you in the ballpark.
Good luck,

Hey, which 55" RCA was on sale? Couldn't see it on their site.
