You still have to deal with the manufacturer for the initial first year of warranty (in the case of Sony or Nintendo). Not to mention you likely can’t use points to redeem because the extended warranties require you put the full value of the device on the card.

You’re missing the point anyway. The fact you can’t return or exchange a faulty unit within 15 (30?) days like at other retailers like Best Buy or Walmart is a huge risk which, now that I’ve experienced it, would never take again at SDM.
Is this YMMV? I’ve returned electronics. ?

You realize serial number is tracked on large items like this?

Can't wait for the website to crash and everyone posts that it's not loading for them. Then when it loads, everything is sold out.

not a hot deal, should be with the old thread under ongoing deal discussion
Clearly admins of the forums disagree with you given Tom already edited thread title.

What’s not a deal to some is to others (in this case getting a product at listing price!) - forum isn’t built to serve a specific person...

There are currently 300+ people viewing this thread...more than most threads at the moment. So that should give you some indication....

Is there an actual product page created yet? Or will it be posted live on the link in thread at 6?

Thankfully I already secured my preorder, but I'll grab some popcorn and monitor this thread for the ensuing @#$&show and entertainment! And no I won't be trying to get one from Shoppers.

2.5 hours of speculation and repetitive questions.
5 days of complaining they didn’t get one.

Thanks OP, I had received this email too.

I experienced this first hand when a Switch Lite I bought was faulty and they left me to deal with Nintendo after only 5 days of my purchase.

For an item like the PS5, I would hate to get a faulty unit and have to resort to RMA’ing to Sony and waiting weeks/months for them to fix it. Chances are low this will happen, but don’t be surprised if you’re one of the unlucky few.
I’ve dealt with Sony warranty before, it was actually a good experience.

I've never had to deal with warranty on anything I bought in my life, and I own a lot of tech!

the best thing about these sudden preorders, moreso the previous one was the botters didn't have as much time to set up ahead of time so people could actually get it,

Reminder for anyone who doesn't get one, don't get one off of kijiji later, there is 0 reason to rush out and get one.
Same thing with 3080 people, it is expected that October will have 9x the units shipped then what was available at launch, no reason to rush out immediately, your games can play just as well with whatever card you have in the meantime.

edit, im dumb, meant 3080 not 2080

Maybe I'm clueless but on November 12th are people really expecting a huge shortage of Playstation 5s? With the economy during covid it's hard to predict especially spending more than $500 on console.

PS4 had plenty, there was tons of concern and as it turned out you could buy one with little issue in the first week. There is some speculation that there will be a PS5 shortage though, who knows!

I wonder if shoppers will charge full amount up front, instead of putting a placeholder like bestbuy

People really believe that they won't able to get it if can't pre-order lol. Sony's team works good here.

They will keep re-stock again and again to sell more. Amazon just said we will re stock PS5 on Monday. But some people rush each other. And I know they have a reason.
