Did anybody else get an email from BB re: Iomega Minimax 750GB hard drive?

I did.

Says it's on backorder

Their email specifically mentions Iomega MiniMax Desktop Hard Drive hard drive - 750 GB - FireWire / Hi-Speed USB
Item#: BB10813470

Good news right?

I thought it turned out to be a DVD burner, so I canceled mine.

Mine's still "On Credit Hold"

I paid with my debit card, and I can see the debit is still pending.

Has it turned out to be the real deal and is it still available?

>>Has it turned out to be the real deal and is it still available?

Considering that I paid for three day shipping on mine and it still hasn't shipped, I think they're going to delay until canceling.

No emails for me either, and I (as if it matters?) placed my order almost immediately as it was posted.

Status on website it still says "On Credit Hold". WTH does that mean? It's been saying that ever since my order was placed. I used my credit card. It's never had issues in the past. And it's got plenty of credit limit.

No email, still shows as in process...



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

Me too!

But as I posted last week, of the 2 BB reps I talked to, one said he was told they were going to honor the deal. I'll keep my fingers crossed for those of you who still have orders.

I spoke too soon. Got an email saying my order cannot be fulfilled, and they're offering a whopping 5% online coupon for my trouble (enter code CSSAVE5). Not quite as good as the 10% discounts they're offering the general public right now, but I guess they tried.
