    Just seen this in the plasma section and thought that it would be very useful to the RPTV forum

    Please could everyone post the following info:

    RPTV bought
    JohnLewis branch used
    store used for pricematch
    price paid

    also if anyone has seen some good prices at John Lewis stores even if they havent purchased one that would help us to get the best deals




    Thanks:)

    If the Mods think this is a good idea can this be made a sticky please

    When Total Birmingham had theirs at £1130 a few weeks back I emailed Southampton asking them to match.

    They came back with the standard reply of we don't match online retailers.

    No, I emailed two stores direct and one to head office but all three replies came back saying no.

    I gave up then and I'm still looking.

    Sorry for the late reply guys.

    JL will only match in store prices etc.
    Total digital is a shop in Birmingham. In fact, TD will only sell you the TV if you go into the store.

    Don't mention the internet to JL, they only get shirty. Tell them its a shop in B'ham, thats what I did.

    Would my local JL(Sheffield) match a price that was done at another branch? Such as the price pmj_172 paid.

    Just ordered the sony from JL in glasgow for £1109 delivered (including 5 year warranty), they were selling for £1268 in store, £1399 on line). I asked them to price match Total Digital in Birmingham who are selling for £1079 (£1109 inc delivery) by giving them the store address and phone number (from website), I didn't mention anything about their website.

    They called me back this morning and said they would match the price at£1109.

    They mentioned that the price match policy is nationwide so it shouldn't matter where the store is. They also have 70+ in stock in Glasgow.

    Getting delivered on Wednesday, can't wait! :thumbsup:

    John lewis does not offer 12 months interest free rates on the TVs but they do offer their Partnership Mastercard which at the moment offers 6 months if you apply for one and are accepted. what they do offer is superb service a price match and ''5'' yes FIVE years warrenty

    if one jl store is selling at a certain price then quote that to your local branch and they will price match,, price matching takes approx 48 hours .
    the one unnerving thing about these threads is that someone is chasing the price of the Sony 50 " 3lcd set which must rank as one of the most disappointing models on the market the only good thing about it is the stand so you can stick a much better tv on it such as the Sagem or the Samsung. Sony haven't worked out that they're below par yet either as they intend releasing a newer version of this 50" door stop

    hi all , i tried to get a price match with the JL at bluewater the person i spoke to was very helpful and said she would do her best for me this is the reply i got today
    "Further to your enquiry, I am sorry but we cannot pricematch with Total Digital, this is instructions from our
    Central Office. They do not give refund or exchange also, may negotiate in price if paying by cash.

    Regards

    Teresa
    Undersales Department"

    i guess the only option i have now is to try to save up the other £250 and get it full price , if anyone has any better luck with a price match with a company other than Total digital please let me know , thanks

    I got matched by JL Newcastle at Empire Direct at £1166 + £50 delivery. The number for their store in Leeds is on the Empire Direct website. I did this after i actually purchased the TV having previously got a match when I bought it for 1399 down to 1299.

    Just be nice but firm with them. Remember we are doing nothing wrong here they have asked us to make sure they give us the best prices and shouldnt let them get too upset if we actually dare to take them up on their offer.

    Serious question, as I may be missing something...

    (I'm thinking about purchasing this set)

    Why are you all so keen on companies price-matching Total Digital, if they are the cheapest (and at 1078 I think they currently are) why not just use them?

    They have made the effort to be the cheapest, why not reward this with a sale?

    Ian

    We like JL because their customer service (esp. after sales) is second to none, and they give a free 5-year warranty. So we want to give them our business whenever we can.

    It arrived today as promised, it's better than I was anticipating, it's superb!
    I'll post pics soon.

    It came with the old stand (corner) which I prefer, I think the other stand was only temp due to no stock of old stand.

    For those of you who have been refused by JL to price match total digital, I would telephone glasgow shop direct on 0141 353 6677, wait to be put through to an operator, then ask straight away for a price match. Don't mention the website at all! They phoned me back the next morning (underwirter).

    If you don't get the right answer the first time try again as others have found it depends on who you speak to. You'll only need to pay slightly extra for delivery if you don't live nearby.

    Good luck!
