OLED Price Changes

I couldn't find a thread about OLED price changes and offers so I thought I would start one. As offers seem to be started and stopped and prices change up and down I thought I would start a thread so we can post about changes.
I'll kick off with Currys removing the 10% offer.

Probably a better place for this post then the 950 thread:

Looks like Currys have a new 10% voucher code TVAD10%, but its only on the 930.
However, if you add both the 930 and the 960, the discount gets applied to both. Guess you could be cheeky and cancel the 930 afterwards. Unfortunately no 65" 950's, so can't use the trick for those :/

There aren't many prices in this thread! :)

It's all very well saying 10% off, but if you don't know off what, a bit meaningless.

Anyway, IIRC (and I probably don't and I've had a glass of wine and actually the raindrops hitting the window are a bit distracting), in JL today:

55 EG960: £2250
55 EC930: £1449
55 EA9800 (ex demo): £1199

65EG960V is back up to £3599 (£3239 after 10% voucher expiring 02/12) at Currys.

I stupidly waited to ensure the refund from JL for an aborted 65EC970V purchase was back in my account before pulling the trigger on the 65EG960V from Currys when it was £2998 (£3332 minus 10% discount).

My girlfriend was already incredulous that we are paying 3k for a TV, I'm not entirely sure what her reaction will be if I suggest we pay another £240 due to my tardiness. Although, if I'm going to risk her ire perhaps I should go all out and suggest we buy the 65EF950V for £3599 (after 10% discount) from Currys. Or perhaps I should realise my life is worth more than £599 and wait for the price of either set to fall to £3k. Yes, I think I'll do that.

910 back to £1999 at JL. Richer sounds still £1399 so PM available. Maybe JL are hoping some people just buy at £1999, puts me off buying from JL.

The 65EG960V is showing as £3999 for me (same price as the 950v) so £3599 after 10% code.

Indeed, looks like it's gone up another 400 since last night! I've resolved to wait, possibly until the new year, for the next round of sales. I'm just not prepared to spend more than £3000 as it is already eating into my budget for other purchases.

It's £1799 now, but was out of stock online yesterday so you wouldn't have got a PM anyway.
 
John Lewis now offering £250 trade in on the 970 65-inch LG Oled and the 930. 970 now £2750 with trade in and price match with RGB Direct. 930 price match with RGB Direct £1250 roughly after trade in.

Don't JL refund the difference after purchase? So 3999 - 250 = 3749 purchase price, then they refund 750 to match the RGB Direct price? Or am I missing how their price matching works?

No you can price match online or instore straight away, so you will get it for £3000 price match and then trade in for £250 back.

Ah, so they give you a one off price match voucher to use against the purchase price online? And you can stack that with additional vouchers such as the £250 trade-in offer?

You also get 30 days to submit further price matches, so if you do buy it worth keeping an eye out for further reductions (or atleast thats how it worked last time I bought from them).

When you do it online they will tell you what to do, to get the price match straight away. You don't use vouchers or anything. Although you may have to enter a code for the trade in. Once they deliver they will pick up your TV at the same time. You just enter the code when you pay and I think they will do the price reduction then.

Great, think I'll give it a go! An extra £250+ towards my planned AV Receiver upgrade will be a better use of budget than a couple of extra ARM CPU cores for an integrated Smart TV interface that will probably see little to no use due to an Nvidia Shield TV purchase in the near future.

The 930 is £1609 with £100 trade in and £1389 at RGB Direct, so £1289 not £1250 after PM.

JL have rejected the price match request citing the following:

Thank you for your enquiry.

In order to apply a price reduction on a purchase, the criteria in our pricing policy must be met. I regret that after review the request you have submitted does not match all or parts of this policy.

To match a price request, the competitor must trade on the same basis as us, for example we will not match online only retailers, mail order only or showrooms attached to internet-only orders. We also take service conditions into account. This means we compare how we sell the product to how it is sold by the competitor to ensure it's comparable.

RGB Direct advise in their terms and conditions:

'The customer is responsible for returning any goods at their own expense. Damaged or faulty goods on arrival are excluded from this.

'Please note that if you cancel an order, which has been processed and dispatched, you will be refunded the value of the goods less the return costs. However if you have received the goods and still wish to cancel or return, then please see collections.

'Please note that there is no fixed charge for collections as this is very much dependant on size, distance and type of the goods. Please call customer services on 0208 478 1444 for a collection quote. Alternatively you may choose your own form of insured return at your own cost.'

This unfortunately means that they are not offering the same service conditions as John Lewis.

Therefore, I regret that we can no longer match the prices offered by RGB Direct. If you would like to view more information about Never Knowingly Undersold and our pricing you can do so on our website.

I am sorry I have not been able to reduce the price on this occasion. If you require any further information or assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.


Yours sincerely,

Lyndsey
