In the local rag HN had originally dicsounted to $1,293 from $1,600 - apparently (it's in the Big Sale flyer at that price). That was until they noticed the $999 price point for the same model at NL, and so promptly "re-adjusted".
Curiously, the RRP sticker said $1,999.
Was really tempted, but, common sense held out in the end. I'd already purchased a 55" EX500 Sony in last year's Boxing day madeness, albeit nowhere near the discount the 60" 60A6500 was going for (dang it).
Edit: Forgot to mention the NL $999 price was only revealed/published in the Dom Post this morning - cunning red team
Actually, the price was on Noel's website as of Monday evening.
It's a little funny that the stores leave such a long lead time prior to Christmas... it's just giving the opposition a few days to re-formulate their pricing.
