Default Rooms To Go (TV Deal?)

We have a condo to furnish in about a month. I know there are probably better and/or cheaper places to shop. But because of the on-line selection, the financing deals and the current offer of a flat screen TV with a bedroom or living package, I figured I would order from Rooms To Go. We will need both a living room and a bedroom set and will want TV's for both rooms anyway.

While the "TV" is not free, the difference in price of the package with or without the TV makes the cost of the TV less then 1/2 of what we could purchase them from anywhere (online or in a brick and mortar store). So needing (wanting) the TV's, it is a worthwhile deal.

The only problem is, as stated in the fine print, the TV's are delivered separately by Best Buy. No problem except I inquired as to when. I was told that after finalizing my purchase and setting up a furniture delivery date, Best Buy would contact us for the TV delivery within 14 weeks. 14 WEEKS!! That is over three months we would potentially be awaiting TV's to watch.

Anyway, since Rooms To Go is active in this area, has anyone on this thread purchased one of the packages with the TV from Rooms To Go? If so, what was your experience please??

OK, sorry. I just called the local store and was told 14 days, not 14 weeks.

Still would like to hear from anyone who ordered one of these packages. Thanks.

Sorry, I haven't purchased anything from there but when I do make new purchases I research online by doing the following; type the store or company in Goggle followed by "complaints" or "reviews" and check out sites like Rip off Report. Maybe this will help if no one answers here.

Smile Rooms to go and internet

I have been looking on the internet and the problems with Rooms to go. So far we have received our furniture earlier than expected. In great condition and yes I am waiting for the 50" TV too. Nothing so far on the internet has been true for us. We'll see about the TV but so far our rep at Rooms to go has been great and so is her quaility of service. I did go to the store to buy not the internet and that might be a difference.
Hopeful. Also look at the Better business Bureau They do A+

We furnished our Murrells Inlet townhouse via The Room Store. We furnished our Naples condo via Rooms To Go. Prices were about the same, but with the Rooms To Go living room and bedroom packages we did end up with two flat screen TV's that we needed anyway.

However, overall, I was happier with The Room Store experience than with Rooms To Go. The furniture seems to be better quality and the delivery was great.

Besides not being totally happy with the furniture quality from The Rooms Store, we had the following issues:

They could not prevent the TV's from being delivered several weeks before the furniture was scheduled. The problem was they were delivered to a condo we did not yet own!

The king bed we looked at at the store and believed we were receiving was not a platform bed. We were delivered a platform bed that made the mattress set so high you needed a step latter to get into bed! I had to do modifications so that the bed looked ok and was functional.

While the delivery people set up most of the furniture (which was part of the package price), they handed me three boxes which were the coffee table and end tables. They said they did not put them together! Therefore I had to spend two evenings putting them together. Why two? I got legs mixed up and ended up with end table length legs on the coffee table and visa-versa. And then there was all those white foam bits floating around.......

We received constant calls for a while from Rooms To Go to purchase a warrenty package. I think they have finally stopped......

Anyway, I would shop The Room Store again. I would not buy from Rooms To Go.

The TV packages are enticing at Rooms To Go, but it is a gimmick to get u to buy their furniture The 50 inch TV is a 720p plasma which is so dated and their are so many problems with plasmas TVs. So they offer u the same Best Buy warranty which is not worth the money. But if you pick up on the side of the sofa and twist the frame you can tell the poor quality and if you run your hand down the top of the frame along the back of the sofas you can also tell the poor quality, and on the bedrooms if you ask the sales person if particle board is in it they won't give you a straight answer. Go buy you a LCD or a DLP from somewhere else and get you a quality TV and buy quality furniture from somewhere else because in the long run it is an investment. You don't want cheap furniture to get a outdated TV.

you are so far from the truth its just stupid. 720 tv's are not outdated. hell you can't even tell the difference in a 720 and 1080 at normal viewing distance. and you must not have done ANY research on plasma tv's cause there are certainly not "so many problems" as you state it.

do some research pal before you start spouting off at the mouth.

I wouldn't buy anything from Rooms To Go just because their TV commercials are so annoying.

dude it stupid that you have not done the research, 720p's are outdated when watching sports or action movies you can tell the difference, especially on camera in and out shots, 720p plasma have alot of issues if you play video games, and watching movies if you leave the dvd on, the dvd can burn into the screen. Why do you think the extra warranty will replace the tv up to four times in four years. You do the research before you spout off at the mouth.

granted 1080 looks better, the average consumer will not be able to tell the difference unless they are watching movies/tv at a range of closer than 6 feet which i highly doubt anyone does. it also has a lot to do with the response time of the tv.

and for reference (since i do my research):

1080p Does Matter – Here's When (Screen Size vs. Viewing Distance vs. Resolution) | CarltonBale.com 4th paragraph. and mainly the last sentence of it

LOL! permanent burn-in takes more than 10 hours. i don't care if you have a 720 or 1080, 10 hours+ of anything paused will fvck it up.
