Where to buy Sony HDTV

I am going to buy Sony HDTV KDL 40XBR2
I have been checking prices but everywhere prices are different from sony website to circuit city to best buy to amazon.

Amazon so far is giving the best price but i feel uncomfortable in buying from amazon.

Anybody can give me some hints where to buy or i need to wait for price to fall down in few days

print out the amazon.com ad. bring it to circuit city or best buy and ask if they can pricematch and tell them you'd rather buy it from them.

reject their first price and act like you're gonna walk out. if they get you a better price...see if thats good enough for you. if its not a good enough price or if they refuse to go lower, go to another store. eventually, someone will either match it or come close to it.

You may want to pay close attention to promotional price ads, like stating they're for 1 or 2 days only.

Prices have been like a bouncing ball. Right after Thanksgiving, 1 of the often recommended HDTVs here in the forum, a Panasonic TH43PX60U plasma was bantered about by the big boxes, BB, CC & smaller regional chains for $1250, then reacting to competitive ads, as low as $999 for a very short time.

Today's Sunday newspaper ads have it @ CC back to $1800, not in BB's ad, & local promoter again @ $1800. Get the drift? There's a prevailing discount price & then it really gets chopped when they want "doorbusters" at prime times. I'd suspect closing in on Christmas will be one of those times as well as immediately preceding the Super Bowl.

As I've posted repeatedly, the department sales managers at BB & CC can negotiate those prices at will. The price tags are not chiseled in granite. Sorry that it's like jockeying for a used car but that's the way it is. The meek shall inherit the earth but shall consistently be walked over in the meantime. Reflect a moment on the scores of times you, being at the time in a meek or otherwise kind frame of mind, have suffered the slings & arrows of outrageous fortune.

My motto: polite but firm negotiating armed with competitors prices.
