View Full Version : Samsung 753 DF 17" Monitor for $93
02-13-2002, 12:49 AM
I am not sure if I got this one correct. If you guys could help me check this out would be nice. I am going to buy it, too
Buy Samsung 753 DF Monitor at Dell.com for 165.95
there are free shipping and 10% discount so >> down to $149.36
then pricematch with amex blue from this web
the cost would be $133
I saw this $40 rebate at outpost.com
so... total = 133-40 = $93
Please help me check this deal... I appreciate it

"Not valid for etailers" In a sense, outpost.com is a etailer which would void the rebate. This is a gamble. They have a legitimate excuse of refusing your rebate since your receipt you send them will show outpost.com which is in fact a e-tailer. If you purchase it at Fry's, that may be a different story, but you have to make sure Fry's is a participating store. I am done with rebates, been screwed too many times. I used to think rebates were great, not no more. I'd rather use that extra money somewhere else.

Here, BestBuy sells the Samsung 753 DF 17" monitor for $199.99
Get them to pricematch, and they have a $50! mail in rebate.

hey thank you for your suggestion
I didn't know before that the rebate that they provided was that bad....
anyway, If I buy this monitor at best buy for $199 + tax(8.5%) = $216
then got rebate $50 down to $166
then pricematch with lowest price I could find = $133
that means 199-133 = $66
so I have to pay 216 - 50 - 66 = $100
Total = $100
Not so bad.......What do you guys think?

If i buy this monitor at local best buy store, Can I pricematch this monitor with the online store...
I mean Best Buy will match the price or I have to call Amex.

will AMEX add shipping to the EMS price?

AMEX BLUE only considers the selling price on their BVG (pricematch) and does not consider shipping. You have to call a AMEX CSR (800-557-8317) for the PM and get a claim no. Then you need to send all necessary documents (your receipt and lower price printout) via fax or regular mail. You usually get your check in about 2-3 weeks. Hope this helps.

Blue is a better deal because you save the shipping cost...
However if you don't have Blue
you can pricematch the $133.00 + $26.97(shipping)
+ $ 26.97
$159.97 (pricematch at Best Buy)
+ $ 9.60 (6% sales tax. Damn our government)
- $ 50.00 (MIR because you bought it at BB)
If you just bought it on-line, it would be
With Blue, it would be
+ $ 12.00 (6% tax)
- $ 66.99 (Blue difference)
- $ 50.00 (MIR)
$ 95.00 Total
So to recap,
$159.97 (if bought at EMS Computing)
$119.57 (BB without Blue)
$ 95.00 (BB with pricematch EMS with Blue)
Man, I need to get a Blue card. =)
Good deals, considering everywhere else sells it for

I'll tell you what happens... I'm in the process of doing the BB to EMS to Blue BVG (pricematch) + rebate thing right now!
Okay just to let everyone know on this deal, I've PM with AMEX on the EMS deal and they accepted! Just got my check a few days ago, I've already sent out my rebate so I've cleaned up on this deal!!!
So yes! It works!!!

I have AMEX Blue for student.
I can still pricematch the monitor, right?
I am going to get one before Feb 16.....If anything wrong, I could return it back anyway.
