I was shocked to see that this deal was available for shipping. For months I watched Fry's online, checking out receiver sales only to find the good ones valid for local stores and local delivery only. So I finally bought a TSR-7810 from Costco. Had the A1060 been available a few months ago from Fry's at this price while I was looking (I don't think the A1070 was yet available), I would have jumped on it.

The add says in-store pickup only...so, no, they were not available for shipping. Usually, when they have deals like this, there is one unit per store up for grabs. Fry's awesome deals on receivers are never available for shipping......ever.......

Actually, it was available for shipping, but it must have been short lived. I saw it myself and put it in the cart. I didn't follow through with the order because I recently bought the TSR-7810. But the ad clearly said available for shipping (not merely local delivery), though it does not now. As I said, I was surprised to see that.

I used to say that Fry's awesome deals on receivers are never available for shipping, but I have to amend that to rarely. And that is frustrating for those of us not living near a Fry's store.

Well that is what I thought too...

The website did allow for me to select shipping (free) when I checked out. I was able to purchase online and pickup in store. As far as your one for store comment... a few weeks ago I purchased a Denon x4300 that was $799 ($700 off) but returned it since it didn't fit my needs. They had several of them on the shelf and the salesman actually pointed out which one seemed to have the best box. On the Yamaha I didn't even go back to the audio department as it was already up front and set aside for pickup.

What I did find with both purchases is that the sales tax wouldn't be waved (promo code perk) and they also didn't offer the interest free financing on the Fry's card.

On Sunday when the ad came out my friend in Idaho got one shipped to him. Received it today.

I was in frys today and they probably had 50 of them at my local store in Roseville California.

Remember this is brand new. It's not old stock like a denon 4300. If they sell out they'll order one for you and call you when it's in. For sale price. Even if it's after sell ends.

To many people talk in absolutes. Never say never

Yeah I ordered it on Sunday afternoon, and was able to get it shipped. Received Friday (yesterday). Great deal. Also had to pay the tax. I don't think Indiana is eligible for the no tax.
