Lol, the point of the story is to keep asking different reps and be persistent. Of course not everyone is going to get 5%, 10% or even 15% off, but it couldn't hurt to try.
I agree, but trying to get 15% off of a 5d2 when every single CSR is aware that it was removed from the CLP... Those phone reps don't have unlimited leeway in granting discounts. Their bosses aren't going to be too happy to find out they're giving out $300 discounts. If you can even get 10%, be very very happy
