    Received my card today as well and can't agree more. It does lesson the disappointment a little when you're given $75 just for trying.

    I used the icemonkey site and already got mine. If you guys give up on OD, know that there's another option. Best of luck!

    I ordered mine on Saturday. How long ago did you order and what was the wait time for you for shipping?

    Just glad somebody received theirs as I was reading some negative press about the company, after the fact of course. Always happens!

    RE: Could be they don't share stock between regional warehouses..

    In a close-out situation unless the market is totally dead in one region I don't see them sharing stock as you point out. I think it's a case of either they took orders expecting (1) more incoming shipment or the amount received was less than expected.

    Oh, on sharing stock... If the pricing was $699 /$299 I could see them having enough "wiggle room" (profit) to transfer inventory between regions /and or bear increased shipping costs but at a price of $149 (64GB) they for sure aren't going to be transferring inventory... (3) of the PlayBooks I received had been sitting in Office Depot's inventory for 18 months so taking up space at the very least. (18 months=Dead Inventory)

    One thing I'm wondering about is the agreements in place with vendors- Is it a case inventory is owned by RIM until item is sold, or is vendor taking the loss on the dead inventory? If it's the second scenario I can't see many vendors carrying RIM products so surely they must have some kind of agreements in place with vendors so vendor doesn't take the loss.

    Just so we're comparing Apples to Apples:

    Office Depot had the 64GB @ $149, Previously it was $189.

    IceMonkey site is showing as of 2012-12-12:

    Coupon-less and PlayBook-less.

    OK just received the official order cancellation from OD.

    Was worth a shot anyway but I really thought it was too good to be true.

    Still want a 64gb though (@ that price) so I'll continue to look.

    [QUOTE=schiri;7778087]OK just received the official order cancellation from OD.

    I received my cancellation notice yesterday as well. I am really irritated that some people's orders were cancelled and they were offered a $75 coupon and I received nothing but an email stating they cancelled my order. But, on a happier note, I received my bluetooth keyboard yesterday and now I have a new toy to play with.

    Anyone get a PB they ordered from Office Depot recently? I've chatted with customer service a couple of times and they're still telling me that they expect my order to ship.

    Ordered mine 11/12 on back order. Checked with customer support on 11/27 and was told 5-7 days and it would be shipping. On 12/7 I contacted them again and was assured it would be shipping in 5-7 days. Then on 12/13, received the cancellation notice. Oh well.

    As of this morning - Monday 12/17 - Office Depot cancelled my backordered 64 GB, but Walmart (US) is definitely offering them for sale at $199, and I placed a (presumably) successful order.

    Anyone that didn't receive the $75 gift card can always call OD and ask why you were discriminated against. If that doesn't work, ask you local store manager. Can hurt and will cover the price difference.
