Montclair in which state? CA?

Sorry If I'm a littel lost.

And yes, you want to pre-pay.

I offered to prepay, raincheck and everything, but they still didn't want to sell it to me, at any price. They said that they didn't know when they would have it, or if they even would.

I'll be calling another store in my state (also 45-50mins away) on the first and see what they say.

They are giving you a load of bull.. Have them point out to you ONT HE FLYER where it says in store only...

They did that to me... page 6 at the bottom :(

Unless this applies to the phones only, I am screwed.

i was speaking to a guy at one of the stores and says the card is marked A07 or some bullshit... meaning they cant give 30% off on the card? they said they could put my name on one though..which the other store said that they couldnt even do that.. lazy assfucks..

is something i could bring in there to prove that other stores are honoring the ad?

well i dont feel like reading all the rest of the threads, but i spoke to a guy at compusa and he said the deal is not offered through compusa, its through the manufacturer which is pny so has anyone called them up and see if this deal is valid on these cards. because even though it says 30% off its still their option on whether or not they want to honor this deal and i'm assuming they won't. at least thats what he said.

Just know that there is nothing that can keep them from honoring the deal. They left an open door for us and have nothing to back them up that this is an error or that the deal can be stopped. Ask for a prepay or a raincheck as I will at the Woodland Hills store on 7/1 or 7/2. I can't wait to get my 6800 GT for my birthday...

I just tried today at the one in woodland hills, needless to say they gave me a great deal of shit. If you manage to get the deed done, drop me some info please :)

You can mark burbank and woodland hills CA unsuccesful too :( Unless there's some people with god-like persuasion skills I don't think I'll be getting the card.

What was the exact reason they gave you? Once these cards are in stock, I don't think they'll be able to say crap... I'm gonna give them an email.

Hey Sepal, are you the mod from nForcersHQ?

Good to see you :).

Also, let us know how it goes if you try to get this deal.

I just got back...

[H] persuasive skill...:):):)

On the side note, I don't think Montclair will honor the deal anymore.

Good luck on finding other stores....

If you ever see him again, be sure to mention that the manager in Monclair was ordered to offerer the price after a customer complained on the website... ;)

I went back and talked to a "manager" (white shirt) She gave me the buisiness sales number, extension and name...

With the wording they used in the ad, I am pretty sure by law they have to sell it to me.

If not, I will give them such a hassle, they will...

I used to work at a compusa; I know how the Manager, sales manager, floor manager BS games work... I will get my card.

I went to the CompUsa in Charlotte, NC and they gave me the A07 story. They made it sound like there weren't going to be any cards shipped to their store for several weeks. However, last night I talked to a lady on the phone and she told me they would have the cards on the 1st. Just to be clear I said "So, if I show up when the store opens on the 1st, it will be there?" She guranteed me it would. Now I'm not sure what to think. Did CompUsa put a hold on all their cards? That doesn't sound fair.

I got the same A07 bull at the Raleigh CUSA. Tomorrow morning I am going to go back to CUSA and try with the GT, as I don't think it is an A07 item.

i just emailed customer service and complained about not receiving the same deal as others. no where on the ad did it say that the item had to be in stock and that they dont take rainchecks. that makes it seem that i should be able to receive the deal. we'll see what happens

I also shot them an email... it's total bull shit that they are trying to make this deal not include cards which are planned to arrive while this deal is active. That and not allowing rainchecks even though the product is listed in their computers as out of stock is totally unethical, maybe even illegal.

What did you say? The manager I spoke to was very rude and hung up on me when I called back later. I am going to speak to the store manager tomorrow. Also, If you can scan the receipt it would be great!

Thanks a lot.

At least I can now say that my friends were able to purchase, but I could not (I'm currently writing a LONG complaint).

If I do indeed get this deal (strong feeling I will prevail, after pissing them off to the point they want me to leave)... will my antec true 430 be enough to power an ultra?

I only have a DVD burner, one 7200 pata drive, one raptor and soon to be 6 stealth fans in the case. On a DFI Lan Party with a 2500+.
