Costco has released new coupons over the weekend for the football finals season, although they started on Saturday just barely in time for the AFL Grand Final. At least the Rugby League fans up north will get more of a chance to make the most of the sale items.
One coupon on the email from Costco but not on the in store flyer was for a Panasonic 60″ DT60 3D, 200Hz, LED, LCD TV (Model TH-L60DT60A, Costco Item #26469. Costco’s normal list price is $2349.99 and they are offering $150 off making the price at the checkout $2199.99. A quick price comparison online for this TV shows:
- Costco – $2199.99
- JB HiFi – $2591
- Harvey Norman – $2599
- Dick Smith – $2998
- Appliances Online – $2547
The special wasn’t actually ticketed when I went in this evening so I asked a staff member to confirm it. In discussing the price he also confirmed for me the Costco ‘warranty’ policy. It isn’t truly a warranty but it is a satisfaction guarantee on Costco’s part, whereby a member who keeps their membership continuous has the benefit of being able to return a defective product at any time within its expected lifetime. The staff member indicated that a reasonable life expectancy for a TV could be considered 10 years.
