    So tempting but I'll wait for that $2,999 deal.

    I can smell the sub 3k price.

      It's interesting, this time last year the C8 was at $3,836 in the exact same deal with Bing Lee
      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/403767

      And outside of one deal @ Todds (never heard of them before), it never got below $3,196 (Xmas time).

      So have we just reached the bottom quicker? Or will we see another $600-700 coming off this TV as well?

      • +1 vote

        I am not one of those that look for bottom (at least not in this sense… hehe). I set what I think is a worthwhile price and I'll get it.

        I do think it is hitting bottom quicker as OLED isn't new territory anymore. Manufacturer's can only spit-shine their wares and slap the ol' "new" sticker so many times before people realise it's the same thing.

        To the masses, OLED is OLED and if $3,800 isn't making consumers throw their buckaroos in the air, $3,800 a year later is less likely to do that. Not even with a spit-shined C8.

          65 inch B8 was cleared at price point of $2500 (lowest $2488 [email protected], correct me if I am wrong) in July, just happened a few months ago, if excluding HN price error. So C9 65 inch at this price is pretty sweet, if not hitting the bottom I think it's pretty close, also considering it's just released in April this year and an upgrade model of B series.

          Most dont know what OLED is. Bigger for cheaper is better to the every man.

          I think that would be a fair comment to say going C7 to C8. But not C8 to C9. There are a few features in this OLED that even other OLED manufacturers didn't do this year that they should have.

      •  

        They are going lower quicker than they did in previous years, I think its a safe bet that it goes below 3K but not by much.

      • -1 vote

        It was stated that OLED costs them about $1000 for 55 inch, around $1600-1700 for 65 inch. So now you know how much money they are profiting from each model. I would think that every year they will get lower priced as the maximum discount. So around $2500 maybe for 65 mid 2020 for C9. Would be great if it can go closer to $2000 but very unlikely.

          The retailer, sales person, logistic, storage business etc. will also be part of profit chain, not just LG…

          • -1 vote

            @vhfyagi: Obviously there are other parts to consider like marketing but that's the basic cost to build and ship. Then the retailer obviously pays much more to purchase from them.

              @Monstalova: A few months ago I wished I could get better price (means lower than JB's ex-demo clearance price $2488) for 65inch B8, unfortunately I couldn't get it anywhere now…I guess you can always wait but once it's gone, it's gone…

              • -1 vote

                @vhfyagi: Yeah 65 is still high in demand so it stays a bit more for the higher price. 55 was down to $1500. I do think the C9 65 inch will get to $2500 next year though

  •  

    Looks like out of stock! Anyway it's a good deal if anyone missed the previous appliance central deal.

    •  

      It's back in stock

      •  

        Looks like only 1 released for sale and out of stock again. It happened during lunch time today, then a few more released in the afternoon and sold out quickly. Looks like Binglee does not want to sell them all at this price.

    Says “Item doesn’t post to Australia” for me :(

    •  

      That is about LCD TV's , no mention of OLED but you can assume its a profitable business for LG considering they are the only ones making the panels.

      •  

        Awkward, didn't read the article did you?

        •  

          There is nothing in the article about LG OLED TV profitability.

          The only mention of OLED is small screens like phone screens which it said "But that has yet to contribute to earnings".

          • -1 vote

            @noise36: Re-read the article another few times. You'll see it.

            • +1 vote

              @wildlucks: Quote the section you are referring to as I can see nothing that says their OLED TV business isnt doing well. The closest thing is "Yesterday LG called an emergency board meeting that saw the CEO of LG Display sacked and questions raised about the profitability of their current OLED operation." But this says nothing of substance, the rest of the article is about LCD and they briefly talk about small screen OLED's like in Apple phones, nothing meaningful about OLED TV profitability.

    Does it really do much AI and thinq?

    •  

      It is a big step forward for the processor chip. Much better upscaling and tone mapping. Very close to Sony now. C9 and up has it but B9 still has last years chip.

    I was able to get the 65" C9 for $3,100 from JB last week when it was listed for $4,795 (now on sale for $3,995).

    JB can beat Bing Lee by at least $100 + free delivery if your persistent, I am confident they will fall well under $3k by xmas.

    I also got JB to price beat the Bose 700 soundbar + sub-woofer 700 for $1,450 total (Currently best price is videopro eBay with 20% off at $1,456).

      You don’t have PMs on, can you tell me or message me how you got this price last week?

      Trying to work on C9 vs Panasonic GZ-1000U

    •  

      Could you please share how you get $3100 from JB? Planning to get one from JB tomorrow if they would match BingLee but if I could get your deal that would be even better. Did you have to pay delivery on top of the $3100? Thank you

      • +1 vote

        I didn't do anything special, I just asked them to match the @ Appliance Central eBay 20% deal from here https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/482770

        That deal was $3,400 with a $300 cashback, so I got JB to give me the same deal but with JB gift cards so effectively making it $3,100 (and got them to throw in delivery).

        •  

          Wow… a JB I tried didn’t even want to match Videopro’s price of $3800!

        • +1 vote

          Thank you for the info. That’s a serious bargain you got there. I didn’t think they would match cashback offer. I’ll try my luck today, fingers crossed I’ll score one from JB

          • +1 vote

            @Lalaland: Agreed. They were purchasing a pricy soundbar too so it may have helped when negotiating.

            •  

              @Pratty: No, sound bar was purchased completely separately on a different day and had no part in the C9 sale. Guys it's not like I got an amazingly low price, the C9 is going to be under 3k in a few weeks anyway.

          • +1 vote

            @Lalaland: If you have any luck let me know, I'm chasing a receipt from JB at this price point because I have to use JB gift cards

            • +1 vote

              @yacman: 1st JB I went to only went down to $3800 delivered. They refused my $3300 offer.

              So I went to another JB and they came down to $3338 delivered. They give standard 1 year LG warranty + 1.5 years JB repair cover plan.

              My local Good Guys was happy to do $3196 delivered. They offered $399 for 5 years repair replace protection warranty.

              My local Harvey Norman was happy to do $3196 delivered. They offered $500 for extra 4 years replacement warranty.

              Since my other half did not want to deal with the hassle of repairing the TV in case something happened we went with Harvey Norman in the end.

              We paid $3696 with 28 degrees, and I noticed they didn’t do an itemised receipt, it just says the tv model and 48 months replacement warranty underneath so I am hoping I will be able to claim agains $3696 through 28 degrees Price Protection Policy when the price came down in the next 12 months.

              The guy at GG showed me the cost price is $3140. So if you don’t care about extended warranty $3196 delivered is a very good deal.

              Maybe try your local JB if they could do better than $3338 delivered.

              • +1 vote

                @Lalaland: When you claim with 28 degree CC, it asked you whether you had purchased extended warranty, so this part can be tricky in your case.

                •  

                  @vhfyagi: Thank you for the info. I have never done one before I’ll have a look into it once the price go below $3196.

              •  

                @Lalaland: Cost price is not $3140 that's a lie, I can guarantee their cost price is well under $1500 (cost price is usually 50%-60% cheaper or more than their RRP)

                •  

                  @dom03: Maybe he lied 🤔
                  Their system won’t let him reduced it to $3139 without a manager’s approval so maybe they had to sell it above a certain margin.
                  Either way it’s a good price and I won’t have to wait till Christmas/Boxing Day anymore

              •  

                @Lalaland: Lalaland your PMs are turned off, can you please message me, going to try buy tomorrow, also in Vic, I might be able to try the same stores as you to get this price, or a receipt would be amazing.

  •  

    Paid $3600 for this a month or so ago and thought that was a good deal. Wow.

  •  

    Paid $2995 (+ $300 gift card, delivery & wall mounting) at HN last month but for a B8 :(

  •  

    Not a bad deal at all considering I got my 65” C7 for $3000 on Good Friday last year.

  • -1 vote

    I've mentioned the deal on original Bing Lee thread way before you post this one. Looks like having a separate thread attracted more people..

  •  

    IF anyone manages to get this price matched at JB can they please let me know, I have vouchers there so I’m stuck buying it with them, PM with details of its easier.

    I will be eternity greatfull!

    •  

      You need to be more persistent, effectively do not take no for an answer as they must match this deal for $3196 at JB, if they give you trouble speak to the manager and then contact Head Office - just keep trying because it comes down to who you get as JB will not only match this price but can beat it by some margin too. The TV would only cost them $1500 or less o they are still making a hefty profit.

      •  

        Thanks for the reply, I’ll give it a go, the answer I previously received was that they are told from head office not to match the eBay deals because eBay takes the additional discount, not the competing retailer.

        But after becoming so used to online price matching and deals I almost forgot lalaland’s tactic of getting prices from different retailers, even if I get a good price from HN or GG I can go back to JB and try get them to beat or match it I hope.

  •  

    Hi folks, has anyone had trouble going through eBay checkout? Been trying for 3 days to buy the Sony 55" OLED. I get to the last stage of checkout, have selected multiple pick up locations where all stores have confirmed they have stock over the phone & I get this message "The item isn't available in the requested quantity. It may have been purchased already, or the listing has ended". Have called into Bing Lee & went through the buy it now flow in store & they couldn't understand why I couldn't check out. Have called eBay & they said it's up to Bing Lee to check their quantities on their listings & that they can't do anything. I've used a few cards, tried buying the Panasonic & LG at the same or similar prices & same thing.

    •  

      I keep getting won’t deliver to your location error myself, but I just wanted a screenshot to try price match.

    If anyone is intrested I managed to get the C9 2019 for $3195 at HN but JB would not go lower than $3,800 despite Bing Lee deal and HN willing to go to that price as well.

    Unless someone has gotten a price close to this at JB they can share I'll have to wait till around black Friday and hopefully I'll be able to get a good price then because I'm stuck using gift cards with them.

    @dom03 really wish you'd share some evidence with me of your price, I went to 3 JBs and even escalated the mangers, they said $3,800 is staff price and they can't go any lower.

    •  

      Appreciate the update. Had similar experiences at two JBs.

      • +1 vote

        If you're not tied to JB then I suggest going to HN.

        Normally I would say HN are the home of over-inflated prices, but I haggled him down to a no-fuss price of $3,195 within 3 min of talking. I couldn't get him to write it down though so that I could put pressure on JB to match it, so I was left with a great price for a great TV that I couldn't go back and buy, was quite frustrating.

    •  

      I don’t know what good a receipt showing a good price will do. The manager will say “cool story, as I said, my lowest price is XYZ”.

      Seems to be an ozbargain misconception that a receipt showing a low price will grant you that price from any shop.

      •  

        This is OzBargain. Where people will step over their grandmother to get a freebie.

        So asking for a better price is no great stretch for them.

        •  

          My point isn’t that - it’s the fact a receipt from a stranger does little to help one get a better price at retail shops.

          • +2 votes

            @OzBrogains: The point is not asking gets one no discount. Asking then showing a receipt as proof could help. It helped me before. Not saying this will always be the case but you gotta ask at least.

      •  

        As said by "xoom", showing the receipt as proof that retailer or a competitor has done a certain price can greatly improve your chances to purchase the item at the desired price or at least closer to it.

        Multiple people who post asking for a receipt have reported back they successfully got the price matched or a better discount after providing evidence the price they are asking for is real.

        Not every salesperson or manager is going to give their real best price just because you say your willing to buy for x price.

        Also, in this case, I and others reported getting significantly better prices at other retailers, just not with JB which is where I need to buy my TV from.
