    Didn't think it was that great of a deal but I wanted to see if they were going to charge tax and shipping. This must have been a scam since I started the process seconds after the 'Buy Now' button was available.
    Me too. I even opened up a second page and was able to click buy it now. Same thing happened again.

    "The HP TouchPad FB356UT WebOS Tablet Bundle has been added to your cart."
    But nothing was in my cart.

    I kept the screens active and even clicked refresh a couple times, no change

    "The HP TouchPad FB356UT WebOS Tablet Bundle has been added to your cart."
    But nothing was in my cart.

    Called their support/cust service number where the rep had me email a screen shot.
    After she received it, she put me on hold for about 10 seconds,
    Then told me
    "Sorry we cannot help you, the item is sold out"

    SCAM

    Glad I didn't set up a credit card on my account when I created it yesterday.

    I was done with tiger direct years ago, right or wrong I don't trust them any more.

    When I clicked buy now, i got the same "added to your cart message" but cart was empty. The page then changed to "sold out". I kept refreshing (why I'm not sure but glad I did) because the "sold out" changed to "buy now" and when I clicked it, it populated my cart immediately. email confirmation with number rec'd, CC charged. I even called to make sure the order took, they confirmed that it did and I'll have it in 3-5 business days.

    Employees and friends of employees probably snatched them all up.

    That's good to know because I was going to order the HP original case. That flip stand looks cheesy. But the Bluetooth speaker might be interesting.

    Funny , likely to sell out in 5-10 minutes, How about 1 second!!!

    Remember, it's likely to sell out within about 5-10 minutes.
    TigerDirect.com: HP TouchPads"
    I was on the website a little before hand to research the components of the bundle and when I looked up that flip-stand thing, it showed the HP bundle 10 minutes early. So I jumped on it and had my confirmation before 2:30pm EST!

    Supposedly it sold out in 5 seconds. Don't know if it was really that fast, but I'm sure at most, it only lasted a few minutes.

    It wasn't even that good of a deal, compared to the current market value of Touchpads. That's the funniest part. This "bundle" sold out in minutes, when you can get the same thing on CL/Ebay for the same price or even slightly less. Just goes to show how badly HP biffed the initial marketing/pricing of this thing.

    This is an old sales trick - you have maybe ten of the device but you hoover up thousands of fresh accounts...

    So your saying TD is using the TP to drum up thousands of new accounts. Looks like there are a lot of people wanting the TP at this new price point.

    Good catch.

    I'm glad i got my Touchpad before all of this new pricing and bundles popping up everywhere i really dont think its fair that Best Buy and now Walmart is bundling the Touchpad where you have to buy an HP computer or laptop just to get the touchpad at the reduced price.

    How on earth is it a "scam" if you didn't drop a penny on it? You honestly think Tiger Direct is going to run off with your CC# or something?

    Limited inventory. People late to the ball. It happens even without some sort of corporate malice.
