    I just brought a PT-47wx49 from Best buy for $1450 with 18 month no interest. I got one from sears price matched to $1495. I was in BB this morning playing with theirs and noticed a little note on the tag that said we will be a local comepitors price and give you 10% back on the difference. So I showed them my Sears receipt and they guy said he could match it. I was stunned I did not think it would work. He said normally they would call the store but since I had my receipt for the day before there was no need.
    Here is how I made out:
    PT-47WX49 $1447.60
    Screen Protector $169.99 (I have pets and Kids, if I hate it I return it)
    4yr Service plan $299.99
    Delivery $34.99
    For A total of $1952.57 all with no interest for 18 months because I opened up a Best Buy charge card account.

    WoW! That's a great price! BB always told me they won't do a price match, at least the BB in my neck of the woods, but maybe they changed ... enjoy your Panny!

    I hate to rain on your parade, but....
    Did they give you that price before or after they shoved the extended service package down your throat.
    I know (only because I've heard it a hundred times from various BB drones) that they DO NOT work on commission, however for them to match that low of a price is hard to swallow.
    On the other hand, if it was your choice, then cool I guess.

    Matthew,
    It was before the service plan. I elected to get the service plan on adivce of others on this board and others. I normally do not buy the service plans but it seems people recomend it on RPTVs more then on other things.
