The advantages of Amazon versus Sears are:

1. No sales tax in Florida and other states.

2. Free scheduled delivery to your home.

3. Another 2% back from the Amazon rewards program because the original purchase price was more than $999.

Amazon's Terms & Conditions of the guarantee state that clearance items are not eligible for the offer. The Sears price states that it is a "Clearance". Sounds pretty risky.

I have the U50 version of this TV and love it. This has a few more bells & whistles, including the black filter.

Good point. The "risk" I'm pointing out is, How likely are you to get the better price that is outlined by the OP?Yuyak said:   veckle said:   Amazon's Terms & Conditions of the guarantee state that clearance items are not eligible for the offer.

Where does it state "clearance" on the Sears product page? I don't see it anywhere.

To be on the safe side, chat with an Amazon agent prior to placing an order. Confirm that the guarantee applies. Retain a copy of the chat transcript.

A customer service agent told me that it applies, and I got the discount.

If a different agent says it doesn't apply, make them justify the refusal.

Amazon's customer service slowly deteriorates every day so make them justify any refusal.

Retailers like to promote such guarantees, but they don't like to honor them. Make Amazon justify any refusal.

Directly underneath the price on Sears.com it states: Clearance. Intermediate markdowns may have been taken. While supplies last

Thanks. Honestly, I didn't see it. An agent told me it applied, and I got the discount. I think people from SD have gotten the discount also.

Frankly, there are so many conditions that it virtually renders the guarantee useless. To me, that's deceptive. Amazon has no obligation to have a price match guarantee. They highlight the guarantee every chance they get, but they don't highlight the laundry list of conditions.

UPDATE: I just checked the thread at SD, and other people have gotten Amazon to honor the less-than-transparent price match guarantee. To be on the safe side, chat with an agent before purchasing to confirm the guarantee will apply.
