That's for store pick up and back orders, not for online orders when the item is in stock.

I understand, but that "weak" card sells for $400+ on the marketplace or kijiji.

I managed to get an online order put through. We'll see if they honour it.

Hopefully they will do this time. They cancelled my 2060 order a week ago.

I upvoted you. But I guess since I have an RTX I could never use something like this...

If CC can't honour the price that the original transaction is completed at then they shouldn't be selling back orders. Period.

crazy, I grabbed a 1650 super last week from CC for 249.99. The same card has its price increased to 269.99 and OOS.

CC's been charged, and order confirmed, but as you say.... only time will tell if they cancel it.

So you're saying you would rather have no place in que, than to have your place held in que and then whatever the retail price is at the time of fulfillment? Because by all logical assumptions some of these SKUs may not be available until 2022.

I'm saying that they should honour the price they are advertising and selling the item at, and failing that, don't advertise a price if you're going to change it later. The above board business practice would be to either take a small (REFUNDABLE) deposit allow people to get on a list and pay in full later.

Besides, these really aren't preorders anyway as you can't order once there is no longer stock so why does a future price change even need a policy if you can't order future stock?

Well if they are unable to secure stock before their cost increase, why should they be bound to eat that loss. That is Nvidia's fault, not their own. Idk how it is today but before you would preorder an RTX and it would come when it comes. The MSRP on all these SKUs has gone up. Shitty as it is, that's the economics of supply/demand/inflation/hyperinflation.

If the roles were reversed you would not want to bear that cost, which is why you are upset about the (potential) increase. TLDR: Hey, it's shitty, but I'd rather have a preorder than fight bots all day.
