why does page 32 show pentium as the processor not i3?
Because it is a mistake in their ad, the pricing is really for the HP, a lesser computer. They advertised it wrong and have yet to fix it. They are still honoring the price though of the ad that lists the Toshiba.
So the ad is a mishmash of both specs.

You're saying you don't normally buy warranties bc you just pay with an AMEX?
Yup never bought one for a laptop (i usually spend though less than $500 with deals) or cameras.
I don't gamble though  ;)

Still only has 1.7GHz but I would imagine more RAM would help make up for it. Although you get a lot more for just $10, it's really more than that b/c you'd have to buy the ST warranty directly from ST which is more expensive than buying it through Amazon. Plus, I can use GC money at Amazon.

Anyway, tech leaders - share your thoughts on the 2 deals please?

Still only 1.7 but CPU benchmark shows it as being a slightly better processor.
I usually need to use the warranty on laptops within 2 years for issues. The cheap ones and even expensive ones are not made to last. I never had an issue with AMEX refunding them.

Best Buy has a better deal.
Although you need to call in for it. The ad says 299.99, on the website after clicking on the ad it goes up to 349.99.
It is almost the same laptop but a better processor, 2gb more of RAM, 750gb hard drive, and it is a bundle deal. You get a free sleeve, wireless mouse, and 8gb usb key.
Linky for ad http://deals.bestbuy.com/#!/computers+amp+tablets3
Linky for laptop package, http://www.bestbuy.com/site/toshiba-c55-b5200-laptop-internet-security-software-sleeve-mouse-flash-drive-package/9999228200050000.p?id=pcmprd226900050000&skuId=9999228200050000

I called in without an issue to have them adjust the price back down to 299.99. Just reference the page in the online weekly deals. page 32.

it's the same thing, you opened with the 50k bonus and they're now offering you 10k after $5k spend
Yup, hey 10k is 10k. I missed the 60k link so...

I was just told I can't be matched to the offer also, but they can offer me 10k after the 5000 spend and to just reply to the message once it is spent.
I opened the card though with only the 50k link.

WOW that went dead fast. Oh well Hope whoever ordered gets it! I missed it.

I got the same email. Their fees just keep on going up per student, with the flat rates that don't make sense for me. So I stopped giving the ARC the students names. I still have old cards that kids are fine with so I give those out. Wasn't sure what I was going to do this year but now this came along. So awesome can re certify without paying!  Just don't do it until Sept 30th to maximize your certification time. Last update I did right away and lost out a few months.:) Been doing this for 13 years!

Yes that is true, but this one told me that they are not getting anymore VR's in until it is switched over. Sounded like it would be within the month.

Heard from a CVS today, That CVS is going to stop accepting CC for VR within the next month or so....

I also got the technology coupon applied on the phone on a monitor, coupon was not working online.
Was looking for Item #298111 and it is out of stock for $99.99.
I found Item #142383 which is the same monitor for $119.99.
Called Staples and they price matched themselves to make it $99.99.
Also got them to apply the technology accessory coupon code 89690 which does not work online for this.
So final price of $89.99+Tax. Which was the BF price on this monitor.
