How did you get Good Guys to match the VE Price discount. My "Good Guy" would not.

GG doesn't normally accept web site's for comparison pricing, however, if you look at my signature, I am a pretty good customer for them! lol Most of that stuff I bought from GG in December. I also agreed to buy the insurance thing. The sales person had to go to the manager but it wasn't a problem with him either. The salesperson first tried to sell me with $50 off but I said considering the tax difference, I wouldn't buy it from them.

Kamakzie: You think that is possible if enough people call the Good Guys Monday morning at 800 229-4897 and suggest such a thing? I never thought of that, but it is an idea.

GG did not hesitate to give me $100 off after we looked at the VE AVS/TiVo Forum offer together in their store, even after I turned down their protection plan.

Maybe there is a supply of tens of thousands of receivers coming out next week. All this hype about a shortage going into summer is a strategy to get us all to rush out and pre-order the HDTV-TIVO!

The manager at the Good Guys in Chino, CA told me that HD-Tivo units were scheduled to be shipped to the GG warehouse in Northern CA on the 31st. After inventory, distribution and loadout, they are scheduled to be shipped to the individual stores the week of the 5th. Since it is only a day to ship back to Southern CA, I might see my preorder as early as the 6th or 7th. BTW, my pre order price was $899.

I automatically got my discount when I preordered from Good Guys in January.
The salesman hasn't called me back yet, so I will definitely call the corp office on Monday. GoodGuys of the world unite!

I am leaving town tomorrow, so keep this thread alive and continue to post the GG number: 800 229-4897 which is the Corporate number. Let' his them hard on Monday and get their act together! Everyone who ordered from Good Guys should call this number Monday and really press them for info. This is an attempt not to take from other stores, but to let GG know we want them soon so they don't just hold them in the warehouse collecting dust. Try to talk to someone as high up on the food chain as possible. A good idea would be to tell them you can post the info right here where there are a ton of buyers who would buy in a second if GG had them out right away. The EBay story would be a good example.

Call Monday, call often!! 800 229-4897!!!!!

I spoke with local salesman at GG and with corporate headquarters and both say the GG computer is expecting delivery to the stores very soon.. They expect delivery within the warehouse to be March 31st. Anyone can call Good Guys Corporate HG on Monday at 800 229-4897 (a FREE call of course) and let them know that you want the unit ASAP and why are web service providers expected to beat them???)

Again, the more that call on Monday, to GG Corporate at 800 229-4897 (toll free) the more info they are likely to gather for us. Let them know that everyone is watching and that most of the people don't think GG's can beat their competition!!!!

Gee, Can't wait!!!! But will have to as I am out of town for the next week anyway. But I will take down their toll free number 800 229-4897 (free anywhere in the US) and call them Monday. Maybe I'll give them a cal Tuesday too! call often and let them know there is a race on! lol

SocalDave,


Nothing could be further from the truth. If Good Guys has their units out by April 2nd, you made a fantastic sell and someone was a total idiot! Not me! lol

Oh, I forgot to mention, anyone can call Good guys on Monday morning and demand that they get their units out ASAP!! Toll free 800 229-4897 . Ask for the supervisor. They are supoose to take delivery of 1,000 units in their warehouse on March 31st. Make sure you ask them to release the units ASAP!

And if you ordered anywhere else, make sure you call too.

Not as much of an idiot as the people who paid $1500 for the 921!

Good one Kamakzie!!! In three weeks, this will all be a joke! They are going to put out so many of these things that by tax day, you can get one off the shelf. I looked at the EBay bids, more power to the sellers! I have no issue at all with making money off of idiots. Barnum Bailey said there is a sucker born every minute! If I were the buyer, I'd look pretty hard before forking over money for a place in line when in a couple of days, these will be available in several places. But, If I had millions of dollars, and was a buyer, I could care less. So, if the buyers are really rich, it is a moot point.

Well, that is the kind of info I am getting. That is why I am asking everyone to call 800 229-4897, a free pohone call to GG coporate and ask them to get these out of the warehosue ASAP. If enough of us call, they will move these things out on the same day and we will have them on April 2nd. Of course, who knows. All is speculation, but it is the way to get GG off the dime.

So, call them Monday and let everyone know by continuing the post for a pohone call lobby.

800 229-4897

The race is on. We will probably lose, but it is kind of cool to get the competitive juices flowing!!! And if enough of us call, and we get our on the 2nd...... COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
