Any pointers would be greatly appreciated on where to look for the best price?
have you tried looking on www.pricrunner.co.uk?
yes, but i have seen another couple of sites on here that were not listed and wondered if there were any others??
Let's face it, who is likely to know if it is not another AVforums member??
the 2 i have seen are: total digital (who list 43 not 50??) and TV And Video Direct!
Will no doubt buy from John Lewis on price match but want to find who sells the cheapest??
Don't forget, that they don't match online prices. There has to be a shop, and it has to be in stock and so on.
I'm in the same boat, and I can't find cheaper than Total Digital. And they do stock the 505XDE!
does it have to be a local shop or any shop in the UK that delivers for JL to Price Match?
How much are TD doing the 505XDE for as it's not on their site?
Here's the direct link, TD are doing it for £3659:
good spot fella!
Just took delivery this morning of my 505XDE from John Lewis in Peterborough, price paid £3950 they matched a well know Peterborough store, dont forget that JL sells this plasma as a package, side speakers (silver) and table top plinth all included, of course not forgetting a 5 year warranty
Not a bad price at all, John....! Now all I have to do is find a Reading equivalent.
in my experience with jl in the past,no you dont.
find the peterborough store or tell the reading store that its been price matched at a different for that price.
its worked for me before!
Which Peterborough store would that be, i fancy a trip to JL Bluewater tommorow!
or, don't suppose you have the details of who you spoke to at Peterborough or a copy of the Order i could Price Match Peterborough JL with Bluetwater?
A beer is in it for you if you can help
You gone the whole hog with HDMI dvd as well?
I got them to price match www.multiregionmagic.co.uk for my 505XDE in Feb.(They are based in Peterborough).
JL tried the usual "is it on display at the shop" lark, but I told them that it wasn't on display at the JL in Lpool, which is my local JL. They didn't argue any further.
The only problem, as I saw it, was that JL do not have the long air speakers, so you get the silver ones, even though MRM were offering me the long air speakers for the eventual price that JL matched.
The shop in Peterborough which JL price matched against was Multiregion on Lincoln Road, they are currently selling the 505XDE with either free plinth or wall bracket fro £3799, the staff in there are super friendly and extremely helpful and knowledgeable, but unfortunately they only offer the standard Pioneer Warranty.
Diverse. What price did you get from FL at bluewater. Did you manage to find a good local price match?
JL Bluewater are refusing to price match even though 2 very kind forum users have sent me copies of their price match reciepts!
They have refused to match Total Digital, their argument is that it is not on display in these stores, never mind they didn't have it on display!
Will get legal if no refund by Friday because the sales girl did tell me untruths which made me hand over my £5395!
I remember when I tried to get them to price match on a washing machine a few years ago, it looked like a nightmare. Forms to head office etc.
Like you, I'd rather buy from JL but not when discounters are selling at £3600 (I think).
Btw Costco at thurrock has them on display and in stock at 3999 + vat.
