Since when do they close for Easter. The only two holidays they close for are Christmas and Thanksgiving.

I'm not sure what the release at Best Buy will look like for the Transformer. I work at Best Buy, and I've been very adamant about checking our inventory system to see if/when we will be getting the Transformer in stock. In our system I can pull up two expired pre-order SKUs, and a third of which is the actual unit. Advanced details on the device SKU shows nothing in any of my warehouses.

Obviously that's just specific for my district area and I can't speak for others, but with everyone else popping up with orders, I'm a little surprised nothing's popped up for us just yet.

I've been wondering about the reliability of Bestbuy's online order for "local store pickup" option. I've used it before and they usually have your order pulled off the shelf and ready for your pickup (reserved). My local BB (two of them) open at 10am... But I still worry if guys are waiting in line at store opening they'll sell out and won't have one reserved per an online order that happened just before store opening.

(that said, I'm still going to Staples and OfficeMax which both open at 8am Tuesday)

I did the sign up subscription thing on PC Richard and got that 15% coupon in my email a few minutes later.
I have been trying to call the two stores from my place in NY since 10am (sunday), but havent gotten any answer.
At least they should have a recording to let customers know if they are open or not.

I would have liked to go by and pick it up.
With the applied coupon my total came to $429.78
This NY tax is a killer! ... I like newegg, since I don't have to pay the tax.

I am holding off on the online PC R order ... for now!

Is it $15 off $100 or 15%? Either way I'm still confused how you got $429 if you're going to pick up in the store. I live in NY too so I'm trying to figure out the best (cheapest) option. Is this 15% off with the dock?

I just went back to the shopping cart and it is no longer there! damnit

I now see this message "Sorry, the following items are no longer in stock and have been removed. "

Correction: I got a $15 OFF coupon

I'm ordering from the next place first before posting it here next time. I don't feel so bad about not pulling the trigger cuz of their return policy and the fact that I know it's coming from the complete opposite coast of me.

Im more partial to amazon because no tax and gets to me the next day. Newegg is great...except I live in NJ so they have to tax me .

Best buy would be ok, they will tax me too but i probably have a rewards zone coupon floating around. The best would be Sears because i get 10% off there AND i have about 30 dollars in shopyourway rewards to use .
