NOTE: I found the same model at a Bestbuy in southern Michigan and tried to purchase it for a family member.
Same display model deal as store #802 sold me, except this time they had the box for it.
After 15 minutes of CSRs going back and forth, handing my receipt from Bestbuy store 802 from one CSR to another,
I finally got to speak with a mgr. (who was holding my receipt showing the $499 price when she approached me).
After several minutes of negotiations, I took back my receipt and walked away. The mgr would not come
down to the $499 price.
Said that taking $400 off of the samsung was TOO BIG of a discount.
