I am...but what's strange is that none of the pre-orders online offered at checkout any extended warranty. Strange eh?

Fingers crossed that the hardware failure rate of some dispatched PS5 units (Disc based or Digital) is very minimal.

I think that at the Store it should be only a Pre-Authorization but the person thinks his Card is automatically debited the full amount. Pre-Authorized is just a hold, so it won't show up on a Credit Card statement until that Pre-Authorization is pushed through by the store that made the Pre-Authorization hold.
Having to put deposits on preorders is hardly "shady".

The full amount at the Source, yes I agree, but there's nothing weird about wanting a deposit on a $600 product that's fully refundable if you don't end up buying the item.

I guess they put it out really fast that they forgot to put in the extended warranty lol.

I wonder if you can get the extended warranty after you received the item.

To say "it's rich fools who paying, not you" is ignorant, and you're actually contradicting yourself based on your past experiences. Are you saying you were/are a rich fool since you got scammed or paid a scalper for something? How about folks in the middle- or lower-middle class who genuinely want to game but can only afford to at MSRP, but now they can't because you raised the price by reselling? A few bucks means something to most people, especially those on this very board lol.
If the console meant that much to people, there was a 7 hr window, and even more today to pre order.

If you made a choice to roll rhe dice, and it works out, no harm. If you cant find one and are desoerate, there will be some at an elevated price.

Look, this is a toy. If people want to spend even retail on it, the money can't hurt them.

Oh the butt hurt is real, sure. I'm saying that all that does is add to the desperation hype.

Amazon has the following shipping options:
FREE Standard Shipping
FREE Express Shipping (averages 2 business days)
FREE Two-Day Shipping (CDN$ 3.99 Priority Shipping)
FREE Same-Day/One-Day Shipping

I have mine at Express shipping, I tried to switch it to Same-Day/One-Day Shipping but it gave an error.
