Default $50 rebate

Best Buy updated the S50 listing to reflect a $50 rebate good until 12/31.

Just received an email from THE SIRIUS STORE...They reported that the price of the S50 has come down by $30 and it was credited to my account.

Good job by The Sirius Store...They will have my business in the future.

Default Yes the $359.99 price was lowered to $329.99

This IS new Minimum Advertised Price.

We are busy refunding all those that ordered the S50 today. Just listening to Chill here. And refunding the CCs.

And so with the rebate the price ends up being $279.99

And, suddenly, the price doesn't seem too bad anymore. One of the main complaints about the S50 was the inclusion of the car kit instead of the home kit, which seems to be required to fill up that 50 hours of recordable space. Now, after rebates, the S50 with home and car kits is $379, which is only $30 more than the MyFi originally sold for. Comparable price for a comparable package... good move!

Actually, if I understand it correctly, the price came down by $41.90 and CMA is now charging us $11.90 for shipping instead of the originally advertised FREE shipping. WTF?

[quote="DAB"] The Executive Docking Station can be purchased and used instead of a home kit, but it also provided AC power speaker system so you don't have to worry about plugging it into any other type speaker system.

You sure this can be used instead of the home kit? So, the EDS comes with a receiver and antenna as well? That would soften the $$ blow.

Has anyone heard if the Docking Station can be pre ordered for the S50?

Dear Robdam,

No, that was simply because you didn't choose the Free Shipping Option and wanted a different shipping option. That refund of $11.90 was just for you, since you had misunderstood that part of it, we thought we would refund you even though you had choose UPS over the free shipping option which was USPS. Not a big deal, but obviously if someone were to choose UPS Next Day Air, it wouldn't be free. The UPS option is not free.

That is my understanding because it has the media button on it and will also charge the tuner, so it just like having it in the home cradle. I am not sure if it comes with the antenna.

You would think Directed would get off their butts and update their web site, but oh no that would be to easy for us to be able to see the specs and what comes and doesn't come with these things.

There are some things you need to handle via email not on a public forum. I for one don't appreciate you making it look like The Sirius Store had somehow ripped you off, when the facts seem pretty clear now you didn't even accept the free shipping offer.

I for one appreciate The Sirius Store being proactive in refunding the amount Direct reduced the price of the S50. You guys are stand up and its a pleasure to do business with you all.

If you have further discussions on this issue, please take it private via email or private messeging with Taylor.
