I am sworn to secrecy and it's he that finds you, not the other way around! I'm not sure he can still get the cameras but will contact you if he can.:wink:
He did it for a few members of the forum back a few months ago for the initial order. He is a true POTN member/helper of the highest caliber!

I hope I haven't said too much........:o

Did you buy at a Best Buy on line or in a store? How did you get it hundreds less than on line in a store? Which Best Buy? I live in the area and would be willing to save a few hundred bucks. Are they in stock?

If he is HE who also helped me, then I can say I also got the same price at the same place with much glee ;)

($2449, no coupons needed, no tax, cheap fast shipping and THE BEST customer service you could possibly ask for)

I used the 10% discount coupon plus I bought 1000 worth of gift cards for 800. I picked up the Mark II so no shipping charge.

I wish my dealer had more Gift cards but I guess with the holidays he was out.

oh well I still got it at wholesale price :D

Wow, what a nice person.

I've been on a waiting list to get one for around $2560+ tax for a while now and the end looks nowhere in sight. I'm starting to freak out that I won't get it in time for my when my wedding season starts. :(

A "nice person" and a gentleman to boot! This forum has a few people like him and that's only one reason I stay here. We are blessed here, for sure, to have people like him and a few others!!!!:D:D:D

Got mine for $2408 + 150 tax =$2559 at BBY, with my employee discount I basically pay 3.5% more than what they paid for it.

they buy them for around $2310 so they make about $390 Profit when they sell one I guess thats pretty good?
