    well, i thought i would get my $50 GC refund and turned back into spendable cash, but nope, RS said it was nonrefundable....oh well.

    i bought a cool little camcorder that was onsale, looks like RS got me in the end anyway.

    BTW- they only had 2 pre's there, me and another guy and they aren't getting any more in stock, thought that was odd.

    also, they wouldn't be opening early b/c they need 4 pre orders to justify that....only had 2.

    Sams Club here I come!

    What's the benefit(s) of Sam's Club over RS or BB?

    So you canceled because they were not opening earlier than 9am? I just went to my RS and the same thing there, only 2 pre-orders, but he said he will try to open early for me since I have to be at work at 9 :D

    At least Best Buy gave me my cash back. You should have been more forceful with them.

    No, i canceled b/c @ Sams Club, you get a $40 service credit instead of the $20 accessory credit.

    why spend $20 on accessories at RS when you can get a case or car charger on ebay for like $10.....I would rather the $40 service credit, that will offset the $36 activation charge...

    yes, i had them call the district manager and it was a no go....i live in a small town so they weren't budging.

    i supposed i could have showed up on the 4th and just returned it after i bought, but that was a waste of time.

    i did need a hand held camcorder anyway.....

    Most BB's and RS's won't allow you to return the gift card. It's their way to get you to at least spend $50 at the store.

    I would think that the evo camcorder would be on par with a $50 camcorder from RS?;)

    Why would you need one? The Evo has the power to record:)

    well, the evo isn't a true substitution for a hand held cam, and it wasn't $50....was $200...

    also, the evo will be with me 100% of the time, the wife needs the cam at home, cause her iphone is junk! haha.

    Is the Sam's $40 a straight bill credit or do you HAVE to port in to get it?

    If you call sprint once you are activated and just say you were promised no activation fee why was I charged one 9 out of 10 times they will take it away.
