Best Prices for TV
« on: February 20, 2017, 10:42:40 AM »
Who has the best prices on TVs?

I checked Big C and Makro mart last time I was in town.

Was wondering if there is a place with better prices.


Thanks

I ordered my last two TVs (LG UHD Smart Digital TVs) over http://www.lazada.co.th/shop-televisions/, where I think I got them cheaper than in any of those shops in Korat, because I could compare the special offers without running around. If you scroll down the pages further,. you get the specifications in English. Delivery from the factory to your door usually within 3 - 5 days, payment by your Thai bank's debit card, credit card or Paypal.

In the shops they usually cannot answer your questions at all or cannot find the manual to let you read the specifications yourself, or are just wasting your time by asking you to wait for someone who is supposed to know.

Thanks.

Thanks I'll shop Lazada for price comparison while in the stores.
Last time I shopped Makro and Big C reality set in that things are not always cheaper in Thailand.

Don't know about best prices, but I buy all of mine from Home-Pro.  Any future problems and they send a guy out for free to troubleshoot.  Prices are average and you can bargain with them too, but overall, it's the customer service which makes me keep going back to them.

Yes, their customer service also made me going back to them a couple of times. but not for shopping more, rather for finding a solution to a purchase turned negative. Maybe they've improved since years ago I had a broken refrigerator (at cost of 27,500 THB) delivered from their former outlet at the Mall, which they could not repair for the lack of parts, but kept me on hold with promises of a replacement for four weeks, until they agreed to exchange it for another model, because they could not get a replacement, either. I didn't risk another experience of having to go back again and again after that.

JF The Customer service manager is a good friend of mine. His name is Supra. He lived and studies in the states so his English is perfect. Any problems, just let him know.  In the TV department there is a guy there named, "Pae."  Super dude who is very customer oriented.  You can always ask for, "Pookie."  She speaks English well and also offers great customer service. I think she's a partner at the pub Oasis. Great Gal.

Sorry, BF, I don'think, I'll expose myself to even the slightest possibility of another experience like that again - even "with a connection"; now, where there have opened so many alternatives in Korat. But I can understand that you're trying to help your friends Supra, "Pae" and "Pookie" make some business... ;)

I think business recommendations on a public forum should be given strictly on the basis of customer experience instead of personal relations to the sales people.

The issue in my above post was a legal one: they delivered a faulty item, they could neither repair nor replace, but it took four weeks to get them to agree and exchange it for a  working item. Their staff were not unfriendly or didn't speak English, they just didn't act like a customer can expect, when he paid something up front, that he is not put on hold with unkept, even unrealistic, promises for a month, before the faulty item is replaced or the money refunded, the customer having to consider legal steps already to get his money back. Poor management in my eyes!

At an amount of 27,500 THB in dispute lower employees are very limited in their decisions for the fear of having to reimburse their employer, if their decision to refund might not be upheld by him, but considered as to the company's disadvantage.

My recommendations are all based on experience, and through constant service with them, the result is I have become somewhat friends with them, but that's not why I promote them.  Just want to make that clear. They would offer the same excellent service to anyone, I'm sure.  ;D

When I visited a Home-Pro they were very eager to help. I actually thought they must work for commission. I couldn't get over there was about 20 employees in a not so busy store hanging out.
My brain says- Do I want to pay their salaries in the event one might help me?

Overall I thought the prices were on the high side but again, I'm used to paying eBay prices with no import fees.
Still getting used to what is a fair price.

BabyFarts - I had no idea you could haggle at a Home Prod store - good to know.
In the states I'm used to stores matching internet prices such as amazon..
Will they match Lazada?

I don't think they'll match Lazada, but then again, these guys deliver and setup everything, mounts on the wall, surround system etc.  The only department I've been able to haggle with is the powermall department that sells the TV's and stuff.  Sometimes you can get discounts on refrigerators.  I told them the same model fridge I wanted was 5,000 baht less at the mall.  They matched the price for me.

Off note here.  I just purchased a new smartphone, Samsung A9 Pro 6.  I paid 15,900 baht for it from the Samsung store at The Mall.  Lazada same price.  BTW, I highly recommend this phone.  if you want an excellent phone with plenty of bells and whistles, this is the one.
