    Orders from hp.com

    HPTouchPadDeal - Tinychat

    Order being processed: You are good to go, HP will ship them out on Monday.
    Order being verified: HP is unsure of stock levels so you will know Monday if they have enough or not.
    Declined; Call HP: don't bother, they couldn't reinstate mine with that card or another
    A side note to the above: It's pretty safe to say that if your credit card has been charged, you're going to receive your order. HP typically only charges cards when they can fullfill their order. I got an alert from Bank of America this morning, saying my card has been charged. I logged into HP's site and my order went from "Order being verified" to "Item being processed." - JeremyM

    YOU need to verify HP Online Orders Placed Overnight 8/19

    If you have an order with HP online from last night and your order is still in "Order Being Verified" you're more than likely out of luck and didn't receive one. Both the sales department and order verification specialist have checked 2 separate orders and neither went through to fulfillment. On top of that, they want you to "re-order" and they are sold out.

    Coupons:
    * I happened to speak with a rep just now. She said orders are being approved fine, its the high volume at the time that is causing email send out delays. THose who could get the codes to work will have the orders processed fine. Just no more accepted.

    I can also verify this, and even fi you are on a verification stage, you will still get it, thats straight from a actual sales rep, not just assistance. Live chat said they can't give information on sales, and they are giving out conflicting information.
    * (HP.com) $30 off $150 - use coupon code SAVE30HP (for 32GB model add a cheap filler such as paper [hp.com] and order them one at a time) - YMMV
    * (HP.com) $15 off $75 - use coupon code SAVE15HP - YMMV
    * (HP.com) $30 off $150 on Online Orders with Coupon Code: TECHBARG30 - YMMV

    Misc
    * PayPal may or may not work on HP.com
    * Signup for a new EPP account using company code: EP4297 -- https://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/s...egister_epp.do

    Places that WILL Pricematch/Reduce Price

    WALMART - IN STORE DETAILS

    In store the price will ring up at $599.99

    They do not price match their website as their policy clearly says.

    HOWEVER, ask the manager to check their new "markdown" list for electronics.

    The price shows up on their list for the department managers to mark down. Most managers are not in until Monday morning though. So, ask them if they can process the markdown for the department. They can then adjust the store system to show the corrected price at $149.00 (32Gb version) and it will ring up at $149.00.

    (woot! Fort Gratiot! My hometown!)

    **Also confirmed to work in Terre Haute, IN**
    **Has not yet worked in Farmingdale, NY. Phoned up and one person said that they would not price match, even if the price changed, which is a lie. I'm guessing it switches tomorrow.**
