    Is that $350 the new regular price or is it an additional sale?

    Looks like it is $350 only on websites related to MF such as WW&BW, Music 123, etc....

    Their 17% coupon seems to work as well, dropping it to $290.50

    Must... resist...

    And then $28 worth of points for the purchase. I'm debating jumping in on this.

    What's the code for the 17% coupon?

    Anyone? Or, does the CYBERMONDAY 15% code still work?

    If I can get one of these puppies for 300 bucks, I'm in.

    Try 'HOLIDAY' at checkout for the 17% discount.

    I thought this was worth a try, so I put the thing in my shopping cart and went through all of the steps to place the order up to where I need to enter my credit card or other form of payment. I didn't see any place to enter a coupon code on any of these pages, though. What am I missing?

    Sorry for the stupid question, but I don't think I've ever ordered anything from MF. (If I did, it was many moons ago.) Any help would be appreciated. I had a birthday a couple of weeks ago, but my wife didn't get me anything because she just had no idea what to get. I'm trying to be a good husband and help her solve this terrible problem!

    Look where it says 'Shipping Options' in the pic. Enter the promo code in that box.

    Thanks! That box is buried in so much clutter near the bottom of the page I had trouble finding it even after you showed me what I was looking for!

    But I did, and it worked: With coupon code "holiday" the price was $290.50, with free shipping. Happy Birthday/Merry Christmas to me! According to the product page it is "Available 12-14-2016," but I'm not in any rush.

    As I said in my post above (#13), I ordered one of these on Dec. 4, for the sale price of $350 minus the additional coupon-code discount. At the time I placed the order, the web page indicated that it was out of stock but would be available on 12/14. Fine, I thought: I'm not really in a rush, and if they ship shortly after the 14th I'll still probably get it by Christmas. But then....

    Five days later, on the 9th I, received an email saying that it would "likely not be delivered" by 12/24, so if it was intended as a Christmas gift I should call them so they could help me find an alternative item or replace it with a gift card yadda yadda. Still, no problem: I did buy it as a Christmas present for myself, but it wasn't really important to me that it be delivered by that date.

    Five days after that, on the 14th -- the date on which it was supposed to be available -- I received an email saying that the item was still on back-order and they didn't know when they would be able to ship.

    Yesterday, the 27th, I received another email saying the same thing, i.e., we don't have them and don't know when we will.

    Now, as I said, I'm really not in any rush for this: My old amp still works fine, and I only bought this because it was such a stupid-good deal and I thought it was a great way to pick up a good extra amp on the cheap. But now I'm starting to feel like I'm getting jerked around, and I'm not sure how long I should wait before calling them and telling them to forget it.

    Did anyone else order one of these at about the same time-- and if so, are you in the same situation or have you had better luck?

    Mine is still on backorder, I'm in no rush. I have full faith MF will eventually deliver it. This was a very good deal but not an insane one. They were taking orders on them long after they were out of stock.
