LG OLED55E7N 55” television with built-in sound bar - £1,699 @ Reliant Direct

LocalFound 15th May
Although listed at £2249, Reliant Direct are offering £500 off with the code Instant500, bringing the price down to £1749 with 5 year warranty and free delivery. John Lewis should price match.

If you call Simon on 01253 501588 I think he will accept £1699 - it’s a well established family business with multiple shops in the Blackpool area.

Admittedly, this isn’t as good as last week’s Currys deal but I think it is £300 cheaper than any other retailer even after deducting the £500 LG cashback. Note Reliant have effectively included the cashback deal in their price so you pay the discounted price and don’t need to submit a cashback claim.

John Lewis and others know this so I don’t think they’ll match £1699 and still allow cashback claims (LG terms specifically exclude price matched receipts).

Before anyone asks, they do not offer the LG £500 cashback like lots of other retailers do. I guess they're absorbing it somehow, hence their ability to drop £500 off the price.
It has to be worth trying to get JL to price match this, like they did a few months back.
They had 9 left at the weekend.

Yes, definitely a great idea, don't be rewarding Reliant with your business just because they are offering a better price...

I can hardly see.JL calling them and asking Simon to “sort them out”
Edited by: "ProZ" 15th May
So if you gonna try JL pm don't go asking them if you can also claim the cb. pms require you to pay full price for the item and that is shown on the receipt which you proved to LG.

I would strongly recommend buying from Reliant rather than John Lewis as Reliant have a fantastic reputation for customer service; you pay the discounted price without the hassle of submitting your claim at the right time and, most importantly, because LG cashback terms specifically exclude cashback on price matches:

7. This promotion cannot be redeemed alongside any other promotion and this includes retailer promotions and price matches.

If you get the price match in store the John Lewis receipt (that you must send to LG to claim Cashback) specifically states “Price Match!”

Edited to stress receipt shows price match if in store - not if you price match after your purchase and not sure about online orders.

Not if you price match after buying at full price... receipt will show full value
Is this the TV everybody raves about?
I've submitted a JL Price Match Request - will see how far it goes. If I can get it for £1249 then I'll bite - still regret massively not grabbing one for £999 before Christmas

No it doesn't as the receipt will show the full price paid which mine was £2.5k and thats what you send to LG. Pms online are issued as a partial refund to your card and have nothing to do with the receipt. It might appear on the receipt as a pm or some type of offer if you do it in store.

If the sound bar is built in isn't it just speakers?

if not can a runner with legs (a non disabled person) enter the Paralympics claiming they have built in prosthetic legs?

I have One .... it is Truly The Best TV I can honestly Say I have Ever Had! & That includes having Pioneer Kuro Plasma , Sony 75” 4k Toshiba 56” Rear Projection , Toshiba 37” CRT with Surround sound (with Portable TV for 1P!!!) & Many Many More besides over the last 10+ years .... My Only Regret was going from a 75” Back To a 55” when I should of had the 65” .... But There’s Always a Next time ;-)x

75in TV are awesome! Shame the OLED ones are so expensive at that size! :-(

I'm not gonna be in the market for a new telly for *at least* a couple of years. I wonder if there will be improvements in the manufacture process by then that brings down the price of the larger (>55in) OLED panels.

Yeah oled prices haven't really dropped much at all over last few years
I think this should be listed at £1749, as any further discount is not assured.

I've got a price match with JL at £1749, but wanted to buy this using the 18 months interest free, so probably wouldn't get the cashback via LG. If I knew that there was a good chance for getting the cashback on top, then I'd be tempted to buy it outright and then see if I could get the £1249 price.

Does anyone know if this is likely to be accepted?

Yes, I guess so. The point is that the speakers are larger than you get in most flat-screen TVs and are forward-facing which improves the quality significantly. Claiming it has a “built-in” sound bar is just short-hand for “better sounding than your average flat screen TV”.

The 4 speakers in this TV aren’t huge but the quality is certainly comparable to many sound bars. If you want something better buy the OLED55B7V or OLED55C7V and add one of the high end sound bars that LG and others offer. The picture quality is identical across the LG range so you won’t miss out.

Personally, I prefer a separate AV amp with separate speakers but the sound bars can sound pretty good if you have limited space and cash.


If you want a full Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 system though the AV amp alone is going to cost more than this TV and that’s before you’ve got any speakers or cut out the holes in your ceiling... It’s worth it though...

The 18 months credit is not a gamechanger if you look at the T&C on Currys site - if I recall correctly. Price match is, though.
Maybe if you buy it for full price and price match in 7 days, you'd have a receipt of the full price... but that's cheating and you could end up in jail
Incidentally, if you missed out on last week’s Currys deal you may find the odd Currys store still has one left. Many of us reserved them but didn’t collect (I reserved 2 in different stores but only collected one). Currys in Cambridge definitely had one left on Sunday morning that I didn’t pick up so give them a call if you are nearby.

They offer the same 5 year warranty and £500 cash back deal so total cost is just £1299 after cash back without any concerns over whether LG will honour the cash back.

P.S. If it’s their last one try haggling - I got an extra £85 “last one” discount...

I bought a 65" LG OLED (65E7) from Reliant Direct before Christmas for £2500 and the service from them was exceptional. Could not fault them and would defiantly buy from them again.
Edited by: "Gravesy166" 16th May
I got a 55E7 in the price match saga a few months back. I actually don't think much of the in built Atmos soundbar, but at the price it was a steal, and the TV itself is great.

For a TV the sound is quite good, but don't expect it to sound like a half decent standalone Atmos soundbar

The point, as others have made, is that if JL price match, and you buy online, you pay full price and get refunded the difference later. LG wouldn't know any differently and so you get £500 on top. I'd sort of assumed that people knew about it, but I guess that is an assumption and people may not have known, so apologies for the lack of detail
Got a price match email from John Lewis. Now just to decide if I should buy or is the 2018 model better enough to wait until it gets a potential price cut at Black Friday.
+1 for Reliant. Amazing upgrade from my previous plasma, just wish I had bought a bigger one! Sound bar is good too even though I have a AV system. Occasional glitches from webos but that's about it for negatives

Can you email me the copy? I’ve asked. No luck...
I got this price matched back in December I think it was but never went onto purchase but am tempting once again.
I have got JL to price match but I cannot see the usual graphic about 5 year warranty as per usual
Secondly, as has been said, how inferior will this be to the 2018 model?
Interestingly the E7 isn't on the Curry's website anymore, guessing the stock was cleared out by the offer the other day
Edited by: "boydent999" 16th May
So, people who have a JL price match, are JL offering to match £1750 by refunding the difference (£750) AFTER you buy online?
That’s a good offer and means you may get an additional £500 Cashback from LG although they could reject it as they know JL would only do this price as a price match.
Yes - stock was limited and sold out across the country in just 6 hours.

I personally think jl and LG will be on the ball this time, I would be cautious about getting the cash back after a price match

Since the price match refund is applied AFTER you purchase the TV for the original amount, I think any cashback with LG will work. I would just order it via John Lewis online. John Lewis will not know any particulars for specific cashback deals.
Just got my JL price match email. It clearly states in bold that the lg cashback is not claimable.

Not sure it is worth the risk in buying..

but then how would they
is the soundbar worth the extra 300?

Serial numbers?
I think JL and LG are best buddies and work closely together.

JL could share invoice numbers which had price match and LG could block Cashback claims on those invoices.
