Judging by the order numbers (from my orders), they've had literally thousands of orders this week. Even people worldwide who're not from Canada know about ME and their great deals, and tell their Canadian friends about it.
This sucks cause I bought something pmed with Canada Computer but now the price changed so that order is sure to be declined now. :(

Thanks picked up a few. Some of the fans I got are getting loud hopefully these will be pretty quiet.
You can PM the red and green at ME for $3.69 also:

If you've already ordered earlier you'd have to cancel your existing order and order again because they don't combine orders anymore.

"There is a limit of 2 (two) Über Price Beats per item, per customer..."
Does this mean only two fans will be at $3.69?As I added 6 fans, all of them are still $3.69 then what does that mean?

Question for you fellow RFDers... I purchased @ MemoryExpress during boxing day (PC components). Now, I received an email from a memoryexpress employee asking for credit card print, driver license and a filled out authorization form.. Is this a standard practice? First time I've had to do this for online purchases, so was a bit surprised.

What do you think?

Thanks Logun --- I thought it was a bit strange too, but since it was my first time ordering from them, didn't know what was up with that..

I think that email is a spoof because what if you don't have a driver's license? High schoolers can have a credit card and purchase online correct? A good test is if you give them fake credit card information and they don't contact you back about "invalid/declined" CC info then it was definately spoof.

Wtf?
Front and back of credit card? So they can see that 3digit code on the back that is required for online Purchases ? And drivers license? So they have ur address? And signature? Sounds like a setup for identity theft lol

If they ever asked me that I would tell them to get lost...sounds like a scam. Try phoning them, use the 1-866 number as it matches the one on their website. I would never send such info in an e-mail, etc.

+1 Always look up the numbers yourself when calling in to verify something suspicious, and not the numbers provided by the potential scammer.
