Our first Hotter than Black Friday deal of the 2010 season! Amazon is currently offering a $200 discount when you purchase a 40+" TV and a Tivo Premiere DVR, which means you can pick up the Samsung PN42C450 42" 720p Plasma HDTV and Tivo TCD746320 Premiere DVR for a total of $473.16 shipped!
The LG 42LD450 42" 1080p LCD HDTV has come back in stock for the original price of $499.99; unfortunately, the Tivo has gone up in price another $30 ($50 total increase over the past day) making the deal considerably less hot. We will continue to update this post if the Tivo drops in price.
The Samsung is $50 cheaper than the LG, but it's also a 720p version (not 1080p). Samsung is, generally, a higher regarded brand than LG, but the majority of people will be happy with either TV; so why not save $50 if you don't need a 1080p TV.
To get the deal, follow the steps below:
- Click here to see the sale
- Tick the check boxes for the Tivo TCD746320 Premiere DVR for $223.18 (first row, first box) and the Samsung PN42C450 42" 720p Plasma HDTV for $449.98 (first row, second box)
- Go to check-out to see the $200 discount (discount shows up on the final "Review Order" page, it does not show up in the shopping cart)
- Total is $473.16 with free shipping!
To sweeten the deal, if you are not in the market for a Tivo DVR, you can resell it on eBay or Craigslist. Conservatively, you should be able to get at least $100 for it; although it seems the going-rate is closer to $150. Even with a lower $100 resale value, you have the chance to walk away with a new, brand-name 42" HDTV for around $400.
Additionally, Amazon is offering both a free 30-day TV return policy and a 14-day low price guarantee. Black Friday is only 27 days away, meaning that if any sale beats this price, you can return this TV with no questions asked and free return shipping!
This Amazon deal has been a bit wonky over the past day, with TVs popping in and out-of-stock and the Tivo price fluctuating wildly (sometimes jumping up $80 in price). If the deal appears unavailable (either in product stock or for a different price), wait a bit to see if it ever comes back available. The offer expires tomorrow, Sunday, October 31 at 11:59pm PST.
Thanks for Visiting and We Hope Everyone Has a Good Weekend!
