that coupon code worked for me too. 10% off. thanks!

that brings the price down to a level that i don't think we'll see in stores for some time!
post #32 of 56
Thanks for the coupon code. The woman I spoke with said there have been alot of orders today. That she heard they are starting to show up as dosplays in stores and that she heard they were in or coming in but take that with a grain of salt because she sounded pretty low level.

Guys,

I just ordered mine today and will pick it up on the 20th, the guy at best buy checked to see if they were in the wearhouse and they were (120 of them) so I just charged it. i can't wait finally the end is near.

UPDATE:
I called this morning. Still "In Process", but she said "it looks a LOT of these have been ordered." Was told to call back later today to see if tracking number has been issued.

I'll post more info if I get it.

Now I'd really have to laugh if that was true. Samsung exec to BB exec, "hey do you think we can generate fake tracking numbers to shift the blame to UPS?"

At this point, nothing would surprise me.

post #43 of 56
Me too

Sorry not sure as of yet.

You might want to move this to the "tracking thread" and once you own it the "owners" sticky.

Thats odd that the official release date was christmas day. You'd think they would have released them a few days early so santa could get them wrapped and ready to go .

Looks like santa' elves stole them and brought a few to best buy and crutchfield so people could have these in time for the holiday.
I'm thinking next christmas i'll make the jump to blu-ray/hd-dvd.
It will be interesting to see what they have out by then.
post #47 of 56
actually I've just received billing confim from UPS . Not sure if Crutchfield has gotten the package to them yet.
post #48 of 56
Can anyone please provide the link for this unit at 'Best Buy for Business' or 'Best Buy'?
post #49 of 56
Saw 2 of these in Best Buy today, Murietta California store, priced at $799.
post #50 of 56
I think the stores have got some in. I saw one in a box at a store here in california. They had sold it already.

BBFB rocks! They sold me an A3 for $106 shipped a couple of months ago. They will do you right in the end! Just be patient with them. Also, I ended up receiving my A3 before it ever indicated my player was shipped on their site. Their site does not usually keep up with their shipping department. That is not really a bad thing.

I would like to suggest that Circuit City and other B&M are using their inventories for their stores at this time for last minute shoppers. They will ship after Christmas. The proof of this is that you can go to BB and probably CC and pick one of these up now.

I can see their point in doing this but I wish they wouldn't lie to us and treat us like idiots.
