submitted on June 2, 2009 by emma123 in "Member's Lounge"
I am planning to buy Samsung LN52A750 52-Inch HDTV from one of my friend. He bought this TV in Jan09 with extended warranty 1 + 4year. He is asking $1800. Is it worth?
I dont have any idea should i go for this or not?How much i should offer him?

Thanks.

    Warranty from ? Samsung themselves or 3rd party? Many credit cards offer extended warranties (e.g. AMEX)

    Buy a new one on AMZ for $1800

    If you can open a new CC ( get $30 cashback + 3% ( $54) = $84 back as discount + NO TAX) + free shipping

    It is a good TV and not a bad deal. Why is your friend selling it?

    The 4-year warranty goes for $350 at bestbuy. If you can wait a few months you may be able to buy it new for $350 less than $1800

    If I were you I would offer $1500 and maybe settle on $1600, but that is me. It all depends on how much you want the TV and how soon you need it

    Don't forget to arrange the delivery as you negotiate the price. 52" TV is a big box and could be an extra expense for you

    If your going to buy from Best Buy, wait till the end of the month. They have a quota to fill and they are willing to negotiate on a price. The last day for them is always on a Saturday. Example: this month it will fall on 7/4/09 I know this from experience (i made a recent purchase this way).

    Sounds like a bad deal to me. The only reason would be to help out your friend. For a used/floor model tv, which is basically what you're getting, you should expect about 25% discount.

    The warranty is by definition a bad deal. Think about it: If they lost money on it they wouldn't sell it. They sell it, therefore it is a good deal for them and a bad deal for you.

    MrCheap suggests a reasonable offer. $1500-1600 tops.

    You can also see if BB has the model you want in a open box. When I was looking I saw a Samsung I wanted for $1400- and it was an open box. The regular (brand new) price was $2200-
