Pioneer Pdp-lx609a/krp600m Best Price


Recommended Posts

If anyone is a Myer one member you may be able to use the latest offer with this $8999 price, namely $10 off every $75 spend on plasma. Received the latest Myerone booklet in the mail today. Worth a try at least.

Making it $7800. Nice deal if you can get it.

Can anyone scan this voucher into the attachment thread here:

http://www.dtvforum.info/index.php?showforum=145

Particularly interested in what the fine print reads.

Hmm i just checked up and the price did rise for the 609 on the systems - lost out by a week, sorry fellas. It was quite a big jump too :(

Re: $10 off for every $75

You do know retail stores put this neat little phrase on almost everything - "Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer" - to cover their arses...

Re: $10 off for every $75

Spin - do you think $8500 is a fair price match?

Re: $10 off for every $75 - Two queries:

1. If the item scans at $8999, and it has never had a different regular retail price because it is a new item - isn't it arguable that the price is $8999 and the voucher should apply?

OR

2. Is a catalogue sale price considered to be an "offer"? within the meaning of the voucher.

so this would make it..

$9000 divide x 75 = 120 x $10 off per $75 spent = $1200

$9000 - $1200 = $7800??

That is the theory - the question comes down to - is the catalogue sale price an "offer" because the voucher says 'not to be used with any other offer'.

If the voucher can only be applied to full price, a price match is of course the better deal because even the current sale price of $8999 would be better without applying the voucher:

$10499 divide x 75 = 140 x $10 off per $75 spent = $1400

$10499 less $1400 = $9099.

Perhaps we will get lucky?

Dont forget you will also earn a few $$ in Myer vouchers too with the Myer one card on this sort of spend. ;)

I think this should work on the catalogue price, I may check tomorrow night.

Unfortunately the catalogue sale price is an 'offer' so I don't think the voucher can be used against it.

I.e. the bottom of page 8 of the catalogue states:

"OFFERS END 16/02/09 UNLESS SOLD OUT OR OTHERWISE STATED."

http://www.lasoo.com.au/portal/catalogueof...&gotopage=8

Despite this, you should still go into Myer and try it on.

Hopefully the sales rep doesn't pick it up and you may walk away with a bargain.

Even if the sales rep does pick it up, make them feel like they're in the wrong and get them

to give you a big discount to make up for it.

Tried at Myer Adelaide and was told nope it's either one or the other ($8999 Special Catologue Price or $10499 RRP less $1400 = $9099). Was told they could do a little bit better $8799 but that is it. Other than that all that you'll get is the $180 in Gift Cards with the Myer One card. Maybe someone else will have better luck.

Still not a bad deal though.

You're effectively getting it for around $8.5k when you take into account the free delivery, installation and $180.

Offer them cash NOW and you'll cut another few hundred for sure, even more.

You should roll up with a cheque book with $8k written in it and flash it to a Myer Sales manager and see if you get a bite.

So much for the doomsayers, i.e. price rises, falling $A ...blah..blah..blah.

The longer you wait the cheaper you will pick it up,

but then you'll get too close to 10th gen, and you'll wait for that...

and next thing you know you'll be waiting for OLED

...then you'll never buy one.

The 609's PQ is awesome.

Just wait till u get u get it home, and you'll know what I mean.

Even in a well lit environment, PQ is still fantastic.

Life is too short.

Would have hated to buy from JB online yesterday - price has come down in 24hrs by 1000 to 10996.

Bing Lee website still at 12500.

Myer still incredible value at 8999.

Something strange is going on with these cost prices.

That is exactly why I just bit the bullet and went out and bought it over the weekend. The price was too good, and couldn't see the point in waiting longer. Surely if the price begins to drop dramatically - by that time the Pioneer/Panasonic contraption would be on the market and like you say, the cycle continues.

Just to clarify, I believe delivery is not free. The delivery cost is $55 if you are a Myer One member and $70 if not.

The catalogue only mentions "bonus installation".

In any event, if you're dropping this much on a tv, either you get delivery thrown in or $55 is not going to break you.

Don't look at the ticketed prices.

Just like the increased RRP, take the ticketed price with A GRAIN OF SALT.

- Someone on this thread picked up the lx609 from Bing Lee, Bankstown for $8500.

- Someone else picked one up from JB Dandenong for $7999.

- Someone else on this thread was offered $8500 from Myer, Hurstville.

- Myer, Parramatta is an excellent Myer store. GO THERE.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AT MYER, CITY (SYDNEY).

THEY ARE THE MOST EXPENSIVE OF ALL MYER STORES.

Don't procrastinate over the 'advertised' price.

GO INTO THE STORE, WITH YOUR CHEQUE BOOK, ASK FOR THE SALES MANAGER, AND SAY:

"I WILL DO THE BUSINESS NOW IF YOU GIVE IT ME FOR X $.

Do this, and the 'ticketed' price goes out the window.

Meh I could tell you the Myer City stores are a waste of time. That goes for Sydney City, Melbourne City and the like. They are flagships and hence adhere to policies like the gospel. Go for the suburban stores.

The $8999 is a catalogue price and it is a special offer. The full price at Myer is $10499.

I can tell you though that cost price has increased for the 609.

Do people still use cheque books?, I've used net banking for years, but I guess one could do a cash transaction via a CC if set limit was enough, or go get a Back cheque.

Yeah they do. I think we get on average one cheque a day at our store. It's a ****. The bank's just outside - why can't they just withdraw it?

It's even more fun when it gets rejected authorisation too...

...because someone in the bank might see you withdraw it, and get mugged, you might lose it.

Not a very good idea to walk the streets with 8+ grand in your pocket.

You just don't know.

The thought of taking that sort of unnecessary risk only so it doesn't 'inconvenience' the sales rep,

makes me want to throw up.

I'm sure their competitors won't mind the inconvenience.

You lose a cheque book, you ring your bank and everything's sorted.

Anyway, a cheque is more than enough 'intent' that you are going to pay for it.

You should not be walking into the store if you don't have the funds in the first place.

I meant the advertised price is fluctuating at the moment and the cost is too.

I'm trying to set myself a realistic price target but its tricky when you have three different prices in as many stores.

As Spin has stated, the Myer cost price increased by a large amount in the last week, and presumably other retailers. Therefore, it's very difficult to compare prices obtained by those who bought before the price rise with those of us who are trying to sniff out the best deal right now.

But thanks for your advice .... I will go hunting around on the weekend and see what the deal is.

I think from the prices quoted on this thread, you should have a good idea by now. I.e.

- JBL Dandenong $7999,

- Myer, Hurstville $8500,

- Bing Lee, Bankstown $8500.

They're the prices at this moment, and good ones at that.

Go by the prices people from this thread have been paying, and as I've already said, ignore the fluctuating advertised prices or RRP.

Based on the above you should be looking to pick it up for $8k to $8.5k.

It could take you another week or two or three to save maybe another $100-200 or so, it's hard to say.

It also depends how soon you want the set.

If it's closer to $8.5k, then try and get some freebies with it i.e. Logitech Harmony remote, TV stand, HDMI cables, or a heavily discounted Pioneer LX-71 BluRay or SC-LX71 AVReceiver.

Remember, you will always get the extra items way cheaper if it's bought with a big ticket item like an lx609.

No matter how cheap you buy it, one thing is for sure,

someone sooner or later will pick it up for even less, as the lifecycle of that model comes to its end.

I'm really thinking of buying the Pio 60 incher, what you guys recon my Pioneer 507 XDA is worth these days as I have someone interested in it, maybe $3K?

Sometime in Feb was what I last heard but that was a month ago.

I know it's starting to appear in the systems of some retailers (it appeared on mine before I went on holidays, but then my colleague couldn't find it), so you should be able to start talking a price. Maybe...

Any chance of letting me know what price would be achievable on one of these? I'm pretty keen on getting one soon but don't really want to pay over 4k. I just figure that since you work at Myer you might be able to let me know what sort of figure i could be looking at. Thx mate.

Purchased an LX609 for $8000. I'm happy with that price thanks to this thread for being a "Price guide" of sorts. :lol:

Should be in within the next week or two.

anyone know when the lx509 is expected here in stores?

I noticed when at the store that they were unpacking a display LX509, so I would say that you'll start seeing them pop-up across Australia very soon.
