TV Crapped Out
Recently, my TV decided that it was being too cooperative and finally did something about it. I had a 56" DLP and man it was great over the past 2-3 years. Here was the best part, I bought it at SAM'S(I go here a lot due to the Mr. Pibb factor). But that in itself isn't nearly as good as their return policy on display models. Yup, my TV was the last of its kind and SAM'S has an unlimited warranty on display TV's and of course, I called them on it. Nearly 3 years later an I got all of my $1500 back plus tax. So of course, I asked if they had another display with the same size parameters and I didn't care if it was DLP, LCD or plasma. Go figure, they didn't have one. So, I ended up with an LCD 47" for $200 less than what I paid for the original TV. Now I have an extra $200 to spend at SAM'S or Wally World and my head is about to explode (and no Kim, you will not get this to paint your damn house, you were asking for it and so were your cats).
Tip: Obviously, if you're looking for a TV and they have a display only, buy the som' bitch!
