Just got this. ordered via pricematch with bestbuy, even though the model is wrong. Did this with 3 of my mates and all of us got the pricematch. The best buy tv is-

bestbuy.co.uk/pro…4b8

Emailed JL and got a pricematch for a better mode. You get the 5 year guarentee aswell.

I'm not in the market for a tele just at the mo...........BUT - way to go fella on how you did that!

The 5 year guarantee alone is worth a fair few bob, even before we consider that you put one over on JL as regards model !!!!

Mate, its all part of the hotukdeals service. The amount of money ive spent through hotukdeals without needing to is ridiculous. But all good

Email johnlewis with the bestbuy pricematch as email suggests. They will pricematch it.

OT - but tell me about it - I just spent £99 on a 2 day break to a hotel we really like.........but a break that we weren't planning until a member showed an offer (real price for the 2 days should be £268)

Is that a saving to me or no?! Hahahahaha - debate

John Lewis say "never knowingly undersold" - so OP messaged them (using the pricematch form on JL website) showing an offer the website BestBuy had for an inferior model for £399. JL replied by price-matching £399 + giving a 5 year guarantee into the bargain...........and gets a TV from a very reputable company rather than some potentially dodgy net supplier!

Wise buying !!!!!!

Have some heat - just tried this - was in the market for a 42"er and this looks way nicer than the ones I'd been looking at in the £400 area.

Any reviews? Only managed to find one that just gave it 3 out of 5 stars (buydigital) without any comment!:|

Are you definately getting the 5 year guarantee aswell with John Lewis for £399?

Seems like a good deal to me. Thanks

cool

can you tell me how long JL take to get back to you after you have emailed the price match enquiry form?
than ks

Cant find any reviews - anyone steer me in the right direction pls? Google isn't my best friend on this one!

Sent the email...Let's see what they say! thanks

Banned

No stock in or near London. Sent email, but that's gonna be a deal breaker I think

Tried this,nicola didn't fall for it.

You will still need to fork out £749 and wait for JL to refund the difference - according to that email.

Good deal if you can get it though ...

This is not a deal OP.

"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.



John Lewis will validate a price match if the competitors' product is identical to the product we sell in terms of make, model number, colour and size. This approach ensures consistency for all our customers and ensures the policy is transparent.



The television being sold by Best Buy does not have Freeview HD built in, therefore, on this occasion I am sorry I cannot match the price offered by Best Buy. 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,

Dunno how you can be so shallow - companies sometimes eff up and we're here to exploit. Once they spot then it gets closed but those who get-in before win. To take an OT but from this website - 3 boxes of Thorntons sweeties for £8 after cashback - closed to those not quck enough once they spotted their error

How long did it take to get a reply? Not had one either way yet

must have sold out as not on bstbuy websit so fat chance on pric match,lol
