Thanks!

Guy adjusted the 55" inch for me

Picked up a 65" CX from Best Buy and was able to get a deal with the 4 year warranty for just about 3000 taxes in. Really excited about the purchase, will have it delivered to me next weekend to replace my 49" KS8000
I’m upgrading from a 55 inch ks8000. Nice TV but been wanting an OLED since I got it.

The wife let me pull the trigger on a 65inch at best buy online. The website does not show any local stock, yet her cousin is store manager of my closest Best Buy but I’m not sure if he would be able to touch online orders. Maybe I could wait for stock and deal and try again

The other best option seems to be Costco, but I don’t have a membership. Will they tell you on phone if they have stock in store? Is it worth getting a membership for and would I need to have said membership when warranty issue arises?

I’m not even sure I will need warranty on this TV but when it cost 3000 I’m afraid of not having it, and the LG option doesn’t seem a popular one either.

It ships Wednesday so I have the weekend to sort my head out.

I also keep seeing reports of VRR causing picture issues for gaming and that almost makes me want to wait til next year when it’s fixed

Here was my breakdown between the two options.

OPTION A: Costco with 5 years total Costco warranty
2589.99 + tax = 2926.69
Costco warranty = $99 + tax (correct me if I'm wrong here)
Total taxes in = $3038.56

OPTION B: Visions with 5 year total LG warranty
2365 + tax = 2672.45
LG extended warranty = $400 + tax
Total taxes in = $3124.45
(note that you still get the 2 year built-in free warranty from Visions)

Difference = $85.89

This difference is in favour of Costco but keep in mind Costco's warranty does not include burn-in.

RFD fam, let me know if I've made any calculation mistakes here (I can always count on you lol)
Go with Visions. You can get them to squeeze the warranty price down (they'll discount the TV further to do this). You get the full value of the warranty back at the end of the 5 years if you don't use it as store credit, so $489 you can apply to another purchase if it doesn't blow up. The Costco warranty doesn't give you anything like that afaik.

Visions will knock off up to half the price of the warranty from the TV won't they?

what's the current price of the LG CX 65 online? Did you have a picture or did you just tell them to look it up in their system even though it's not listed online anymore?

Pretty close yeah, that's what I got. I paid 250/489 for the warranty and they just scraped it out of the TV which I had already asked for a $100 discount on.

Can you please PM me for which store you get for 2365 + tax = 2672.45? I am looking to buy 65". TIA
Rule No.1 here: Buy first, Think afterwards.

Ordered from BB yesterday morning, getting delivered tomorrow morning. I did have to pay delivery but with 2 day delivery I'm happy. I hope it goes down for Black Friday so I can price adjust. I didn't want to wait for BF in case there was no/low product.

I agree i was going to answer the same.

NOTE the warranty increases with time since purchase and cost of TV.
So buy the same time you buy your TV. Mine is 6 months old and the warranty is now $180 more.

Dang that's a good price. Debating between this CX and the A8H right now. I have a PS5 and RTX 3080 so the LG CX seems like the better choice but I also love Sony's image processing, hmmm.

Potentially more, depending on how hard you haggle. I basically paid $200 for my $800 warranty from Visions.

Did you buy the 77 inch model? Is that why the warranty was 800?

Yep! I got the Sony A9G 77" for $4,999 (same price as CX). Price pre-tax was $5,199 (TV discounted to $4,400, warranty as $799).
