I have joined the Fellowship of the 5K twice-over now!
Scored my second new in box unit (the last unit in the box) at a local Best Buy in Madison, WI - $450
They had it marked at $599, the CSR had no idea that it was discontinued and started to argue with me until I politely as that he look it up before he said something foolish after which he stated that they had three 'open box' (which were not on the shelf but hooked up for display demonstrations).
He had a manager come over and they dropped it to $499. I stated that I had been quoted $450 a week earlier, but had to get approval from W.I.F.E. (Woman's Infernal Financial Enforcement)
I'll get double Reward Zone points, which will bring the net cost down a bit.
