Tips and tricks for buying a TV

  • Price matching. Before you buy, compare prices between retailers. If you see a competitor with a better deal, ask the store to meet or beat the advertised sale price.
  • Delivery fees. Don’t be afraid to ask a retailer to lower shipping costs or waive delivery fees, especially if you’re purchasing a large-screen TV.
  • Price protection. If you use your credit card to make your purchase, see if your card offers price protection. If it does, you may be able to get a refund for the difference if the price of the TV drops after you buy it. Check to see if you need to register your purchase to use this feature.
