congrats on the great deal on the tv. you should have had them sell you a $2130909 monster cable for $30 to close the deal.
After much debate over which television to buy, I decided to go with the 46" XBR2. I went to BB and found the price to be on sale for $3,419 (it WAS on sale for $3,099 2 days ago for a 2 day ordeal). After excepting the fact that I missed the sale (and thoughts of still having the chance of a price match)... I decided to suck it up and go with it.
After agreeing to buy it, I knew what was coming - the extended warranty speech. And boy did it come - in full force. After saying no repeatedly (broken record style)to the $500 warranty, they brought in other employees to tell me how cRaZy I was not to get it. Man, if you were there you'd swear they were working on commission (which I am told they are not). Finally - I told them that MAYBE if the tv was $3099.. I would consider it, but since it's not - I wouldn't.
Within the next 2 minutes - the guy came back dropped the price to $2900!! AND - because the item was under $3000, I was able to get the extended warranty for $350 (instead of the 500).
I wasn't planning on getting the warranty - but considering I was able to get it, along with the TV for less than I originally planned... why not!!
Thank you BB... well played!!
