Why not Quebec!!!
Probably some language thing to do with branding, manual, packaging...
QC...self-imposed language barrier.

I bought an Echo 2 and an SD card, so my CC had the full cost of the order as pending. My order was set to 'parked' because they echo isn't out yet, the SD card arrived, and the CC charge went though but the charged amount change to just to total for the SD card.

Anyone else see this happening?

Same here, they will only charge your card once an item has shipped, my order is parked as well but should receive shipping notice shortly as the release date is tomorrow

I was just on The Source website and see that all mention of Amazon Echo's have disappeared. Don't know if that is just recent, or why. I have a pre-order with them, using the coupon and clicked on the product description in my order email and the page doesn't exist. Not a big shopper with The Source because they usually disappoint. I hope I'm not going to be sad again!

Is this hot because it has the $25 coupon applied? Or is this cheaper than other stores already? Because if adding the newsletter coupon $25 off $100 makes something hot, then that would apply to a lot of items, like the Google Home for $99 - $25 newsletter. Am I missing something here why this is considered a hot thread? No offence to the OP, just wanted to know why this is hot. If adding a coupon makes something hot, then buying any items worth $100 total and applying the coupon would make them hot as well.

I thought it's because the Echo and Google Home are mostly sold out everywhere.

Is the Echo much better than the Home? Google clearly attracts better talent than Amazon so I expect the home to become better overtime.

naw, they get supply here and there. They usually flame people for posting something in hot thread if its not really a deal (even if sold out, example nintendo switch back when it was hard to find, if was regular price, people flamed)

but i guess thanks for letting us know we can use the $25 newsletter coupon on the Amazon Echo at thesource.

The way I see it:

If everybody else is selling for the same promo price ($99), the "coupon" (which is easy to get) is an additional discount that allows you to buy the item at a much lower price than everywhere else. So strictly speaking this is one of the better deal out there, which means it's appropriate to discuss it here. Whether it's as hot as other deals is up to the forum members to decide, if it's not hot, chances are the thread will sink to the bottom

Re: what you said about other items.....If I buy a set of Sony headphones at the Source for $100 minus the $25 coupon, it doesn't mean it's also a hot deal if the same headphones can be found at half price somewhere else. The Echo is hot just because you can't find a better deal for the device outright somewhere else.
Honey, I can't go to bed yet. Somebody is wrong on the Internet!
