***DEAL STARTS 6TH JANUARY***

Following the pricing error on this same telly the other day, I emailed the MD and CEO of Argos/Home Retail Group to complain about them renaging on the "deal". I subsequently got a phonecall from the Executive Relations Manager, offering me an apology. She slipped it into the conversation that the telly would be reduced to £800 tomorrow (6th Jan).

While I appreciate that this deal is not active yet, and it's not quite the £199 we were hoping for, it's still a pretty awesome reduction.

Please go easy with me, it's my first time!

Its appearing here

argos.co.uk/sta…htm

Its £2246.80.. £800 seems very cheap

This will go red hot if thats the price tomorrow...

Won't vote hot or cold.... But I'm very doubtful, seeing as how most 60" T.Vs are selling for around 2.3-2.7 K. Seems more likely the manager just invented this promotion to get you off the phone, either that or meant it would be reduced by £800. But still, I'll hold off on voting, on the odd chance I might be wrong, and Argos have gone insane

if that happens i will buy 20, i cant see it happenin though red hot hot hot if it does.

20 would be £16,000. Good luck storing and offloading 20 60" tellies

Would be ok if the model was a quick mover and gained good margins, would be bad luck if the market price dropped. Just a chuckle imagine how many pallets it would take to deliver that lot and Argos probably still will only charge £8.95 delivery.

My birthday tomorrow, this would be a great present to self!

Just in case this does drop down to 800 is this tv any good?

Good question you are paying about £200-£300 more even at £800 just for the extra inches over a 50 inch for example,But this is 60 inches and full HD so luke warm at best IMO @ £800, HOTTTTT @ £199.99

mully

yeah at the correct price of £2246 !!



As the OP stated "the telly would be reduced to £800 tomorrow (6th Jan)"

So I imagine the price will change then

awesome

A little piece of me died when they phoned me to tell me they weren't going to honour £199, even though I knew they wouldn't!

Amazon have it for over £2k

I'll ring and reserve it in the morning.

It has 4 HDMI sockets, according to LG

The current cheapest price appears to be ~£1600 from a quick look. Therefore if it is £800 it would be a good price.

However, we all know the push to 3D is driving the prices of old models down, so I imagine we'll see a few deals if you're not particular about the model/make.

IMO you'd have to be pretty sure you won't want 3D in the near future, as £800 while cheap is not insignificant and its a little big for most people to stick in the bedroom.
