    Today is my 24 year old son's Birthday, so I thought I'd pick up a Playbook for him, since he's showing so much love for mine. He also has a BB phone so a perfect match.
    Much to my surprise, I could not find a single 64 gig PB driving from my office in Brampton to my home in Aurora (60km). I stopped at every Best Buy, Future Shop, Source and Walmart. Not one to be had!!! I found a few 32's and lots of 16's, but no 64's. My closest encounter with getting one was the Walmart in Aurora, I missed on their last one by 20 minutes. They had 16's but wanted the same price for it as a 64, $298.00, made no sense to buy for that price.
    So I've ended up online at the Source, they have a sale, 16's for 199.00, 32's for $249.00 and 64's for 299.00.
    So my son will be getting a piece of paper tonight showing he can pick up his 64 gig Playbook after Jan 31st sometime. I know it is not quite the same as opening a new boxed Playbook, but I think he'll be happy to wait to get the 64 over the 16 or 32.
    Looks like this might be one of the last times to get one at a fantastic discount price.

    Thanks, alnamvet68, thank you very much for the "heads up" on the sale and discount coupon. I did as you said and cancelled my Source order and ordered as you told me to. I've saved $70.00!!!!! Thanks again, just goes to show you how valuable this site can be to all members when we are helping each other.
