LG 47LN575V LED HD 1080p Smart TV, 47" with Freeview HD

Price match with Richer Sounds to get for £499

Obviously the Hughes direct ebay deal is £50 cheaper but I'd prefer to pay the extra £50 for the JL 5 Year Guarantee

Had this t.v delivered this morning and it's beautiful, played some forza 5 on it and it looks incredible.

I think John Lewis (and Richer Sounds for that matter) only price match once you take into account the cost of the competitor 5 year Guarantee.

So JL will consider the RS price as £499.95 + £49.95 for the 5 years.

Nope, the guarantee for John Lewis is free therefore has no value, I've already had the e-mail from John Lewis saying they are happy to price match richer sounds at £499.

You do a price match before buying the T.V then when they send you an e-mail confirming you get a ref number, purchase the t.v at £549 and then once you receive it and are happy you reply to that e-mail and they refund you the difference, you have 28 days from delivery to reply to the e-mail.

Just called John Lewis to see if they will price match richer at £489.99 as richer have £10 off £100 spend

I appreciate this won't have the lowest response time when compared to Plasma televisions, but how do people think this stacks up for gaming?

If that is the case then happy days.

I was always led to believe that they consider the match price on the competitor including their 5 year gurantee price.

Because JL put 5 years on their tvs as standard they don't put a value on it, hence why they don't take into account any guarantees when price matching.

As I say, happy to be corrected on info like this. Makes it a good deal, and I was personally very interested in getting this model TV, so might well follow up in the John Lewis route.

But certainly from Richer Sounds price match terms, THEY take the Guarantee price into account.

I Presume because they charge around £50 for their 5 year guarantee on top whereas JL include it as standard. just for reference this is the e-mail below I had from John Lewis.

Yeh, Richer Sounds charge an extra £49.95 for the 5 year warranty

Rather get the Lg 47LN578V from Currys at £549 with the Magic Remote included, it really makes using the smart tv functions great.

You can use your smartphone with this t.v which I figure would render the remote useless?

and the magic remote is only £30 isn't it so the Currys deal not as good as JL price matching at 499

if that is an online code only then I'm not sure they would match it, although they do match any online price as long as the retailer is also a high street shop, so perhaps this will work. I got the 499 price match and was happy with that. Also got Avios miles for John Lewis who also have a deal of those currently, extrat air mails per £1 spent (normally 2 miles per £1)

Well unfortunately my tv is going back, cant fault the john lewis customer service though, phoned this morning having a new one delivered tomorrow and the faulty one picked up at the same time (screen had image retention fault)

Still waiting to hear back from them. Called a few times already. Think I should have just asked for the 499 price match. Might have gone through by now.

JL got back to me last night. Will only do for £519.99 as richer charge 20 for delivery. They don't have any in stock that I can pick up for free to they are adding £20 to the price match. But still free 5 year JL warranty

Interested in this deal. Posted JL clain lets see.
