For all those people who screamed “YES YES YES!” when I asked if you need a giant screen TV, you’ll probably want to camp out in front of Best Buy this Sunday morning and pick up the Panasonic 50-inch 1080p Plasma HDTV for just $1709.99. This is one of the best 50-inchers out there, and you normally can’t find it for under $2,800.00.
This could turn out to be a price mistake; so don’t get your hopes up too high, and try to keep it on the down-low. Whatever you do, don’t post it on a popular personal finance website.
EDIT (September 20, 2007 @8:13pm): Looks like the deal is dead before it was alive. People are reporting that Best Buys are already posting signs in stores that the price is incorrect and will not be honored. It’s a long shot, but the more unscrupulous Punny Money readers (you know who you are!) could try price-matching the Best Buy flyer at Sears or Circuit City. Just be prepared for store managers with swords to stab you in the face and eat your flyer.
Confirmed. Not only is Best Buy not honoring the price, but they’re trying to turn their mistake into an advantage by offering $100 off other TVs. Lame!
