So if like me you really wanted that deal, use livechat, and they will gladly sell you the product for the promised original price.
Thanks for the tip. I did the same and got the same response, so I reordered it. We'll see if there's an issue with the credit.
It's obvious that they cleared out the discounted orders before listing the item in stock, and then on top of it took people's money on the cancelled orders for a couple of days. Pretty shoddy. Between this and similar issues people had with Wii U preorders, my opinion of Newegg is dropping rapidly, at least for preordering things. I still have a few preorders set up, but if I see the same deals on those elsewhere between now and release, I won't hesitate to cancel the Newegg ones.
