Might be a good option to put part of it on the freedom then put the rest on a bestbuy card.

Even better way to do this is buying discounted Best Buy gift card from Cardpool/Plastic Jungle

 

http://www.cardpool.com/buy/best-buy-gift-cards

https://www.plasticjungle.com/gift-card/best-buy-gift-cards

 

Put $300 in the forms of gift card and $1,500 on your Chase Freedom.

What TV are you looking at? Link plz

 

 

They have a good deal on this tv today:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Sharp+-+AQUOS+-+60%26%2334%3B+Class+-+LCD+-+1080p+-+120Hz+-+HDTV+-+Piano...


3D tv's aren't really that necessary in the home if that is what you are looking at, same with LED tv's. Once they are in place it doesn't really matter how thin they are. I have 3 LED TV's and to me...just basic LCD's would have been fine

 

One of my TV"s is a smart tv, and it seems like that just makes it take longer to turn on. I never use the smart tv functions, so it is just kind of a hassle.

Make sure that is really what you need. If you have a video game system or blu ray hooked up to it already, then the smart tv function are superfluous. If you aren't going to be wanting to wear 3D glasses at your home, then the 3D function is pointless. If you aren't going to be moving it a lot, and you are okay with the lighting of LCD, then LED isn't needed. If you don't mind the look of other brands, then paying more for Samsung isn't worth it. I have actually had good luck with best buys in house insignia brand.

 

Just trying to save you some money. Hope you think about it a little more. You can get a pretty sweet tv for half the price.

 

Also, make sure you check out the open box area. You can usually find some really nice TV's there and they will sometimes sell them for what you offer them.
