If you're in the market for a sound plate, then Costco is currently offering an interesting freebie. With the purchase of an LG LAP340 multi-channel bluetooth sound plate, you will also receive a 6-month subscription to Netflix for free. It's $299.99 and comes up to $303.49 with the mandatory $3.50 eco fee.
Although many make the argument that the American Netflix is better than the Canadian, I love the Canadian one nonetheless because it has certainly improved tenfold in the past couple of years. With shows like Orange is the New Black, Glee, and The Walking Dead and movies like Olympus Has Fallen, A Good Day To Die Hard and Star Trek: Into Darkness, there is definitely plenty to watch!
This sound plate is also pretty cool because if your TV is mounted on the wall, then you can easily connect it via bluetooth without having to figure out how to plug it. Otherwise, you can simply place the television on top of it. It also has 4.1 channel surround sound and can fit most TVs from 32" to 55".
Price comparing this sound plate, I actually found it at its cheapest at Visionsfor $298 but what makes this deal particularly worth it is the Netflix subscription. On its own, Netflix is $7.99 per month for 2 screens, which comes up to $47.94 for 6 months. According to the redemption instructions for this promotion, however, the total value of the 6-month is $53.94 and can be applied to a different plan such as the 4 screens one, which is $11.99 per month. Both plans also come with high definition.
Here's what one reviewer had to say about it:
This is an attractive, sturdy unit that serves as the base for an 80 lb. television, and sounds better than my stock T.V. speakers. it has the added advantage of playing music from my laptop/phone/tablet/iPod touch through a blue tooth connection.
The fact that it can play music with other devices is definitely an added bonus and one that would be particularly useful when entertaining guests.
Alternatively, you can also get a LG webOS Smart TV and get a 1-year subscription to Netflix instead.
The great part about buying online with Costco is that you don't have to worry about any additional charges as shipping is free.
