Looking at the deal here:

Possibly the Samsung UA43MU6100SXNZ model?

Their website says it’s valued at $1199. Noel Leeming and JB have it for $1147 and $1097 respectively. Seems to be about the only new 43” TV you can buy anyway.

I don’t know for sure, just making an educated guess.

That was my original guess to since it was the closest to the price mentioned on the website. It looks like a good deal since I'm looking at replacing my television, the Samsung is running Tizen with the latest updating having come through this year, and the reviews have been all good given that primary application I'd be using is the YouTube one so the question is whether it supports wifi networks on the 5Ghz frequency. I'll have a chat tomorrow with Spark on the situation.

It will be this, the last samsung tv offer with phone was the very low end 32".  Was not even full HD.  I would not expect them to give you anything higher than an HD tv

A credit to the value of the tv on the phone would be a better deal.

No, because it's a marketing thing. You have a Samsung Phone, and a TV, next appliance or electronic you buy will be a .... Samsung.. Maybe. 

 

Also the interaction between your phone and tv enhances the experience of both.

Which means Samsung is overstocked on this model and looking to clear the channel. the real unit price of the tv must be closer to the equivalent of an average phone credit.

 

 

 

wow

So? Why do you care? It's still a great deal. If VF or Samsung would do this deal outside of Spark, I'd very seriously consider it.

So as long as you're going to pay for a $60 or more plan per month and you're looking at buying a S9+ it's a great deal. Equates to a minimum payment of $123.66 per month when you factor the cost of the phone over 24months too.

 

So yeah means the TV must be going for the $300ish mark wholesale (not that you'd ever get it at that price retail!)

When they did this for the note 8 last year via 2degrees and noels (about a month after the release) they forgot to put "for purchases between xxx & xxxx" so anyone that had already purchased a note 8 (including pre orders) from noels or 2degrees could also legally claim one.

 

 

 

I pre-ordered my note 8 from 2degrees and got a free tv after pointing out that no where in the t&c's did it have a date range.  They did fix it a few days after I pointed it out however.  The TV made a great early xmas present for a mate :)

I ordered a phone on Wed via our Spark business rep.

 

 

The phone arrived Thurs, and the TV arrived this morning. Great service as usual

 

 

I can confirm that the model is: UA43M5500AS

No, it wouldn't be. My next purchase would be subject to my needs not because I have a TV and phone by Samsung.

Spark gave me a $500 dollar credit on my iPhone, they have done a deal like this before hence why I said a better deal would be a credit towards the phone.

It's not a bad deal, but it's definitely not a deal I would consider that's for sure.
