    It seems there have been multiple reports of outages of the codes. I bought my GTX 580 on the 26th of this month and the Duluth, GA Microcenter was already out. Several others have forum posts across the web have surfaced where people bought qualifying cards, and not gotten a code. I understand this is covered in the fine print as it was a limited quantity, just wanted to throw it out there.

    *Update* -- Called the Marietta store in Georgia, explained the situation to the manager on duty, got a coupon.

    Unfortunately, if they covered their asses in that fine print, then there's nothing you or anyone else can do about it. Whoever introduced "fine print", probably dead now, shouldve gotten a swift kick in the vagina/balls. This is just 1 of the many ways for them to rob you with their eyes closed.

    Wouldn't this be the opposite of a hot deal? :laugh:

    Thanks man. I appreciate any consumer protection warnings I can get these days. I am tired of finding out fine print the hard way.
