I was deeply concerned to read that there appear to have been a number of problems for members of this forum - both in terms of actually placing orders with Adorama, and in getting them fulfilled.
While I can't identify any of you from your postings here, I'd like to reach out and invite you to contact us at [email protected], with any queries or concerns you may have, so a representative can get back to you and do their best to help.
Please accept my sincere apologies for any frustration or disappointment caused, and I very much look forward to hearing from you
Looks like the deal no longer works. I initially was going for the $2599 MBP, but it was out of stock. Just tried this again, and the price is at $2893 and the code AP08072014 no longer works...
I live outside of the USA. I intend to purchase an iMac, using this discount deal, for my mother in Florida (but could be anywhere for tax evasion discussion). Obviously, I am not going to file a state tax return in her state for the sole purpose of paying sales tax, so I guess my mother, who is a very moral and ethical person, will need to ask me for the price I paid on the iMac gift, then calculate the state sales tax, and then report it on her state tax return ... glad she lives in FL with state income tax so she can sleep at night.
Adorama states that the email address should be [email protected]
I'm only asking as someone who purchased a great bargain, but was amazed at how difficult it was to complete the transaction on Adorama's website.
(I communicated with Ms. Oster and was the person who initially warned her that folks were having problems completing orders - I know I had quite a time getting it done due to the confusing process)
This is 2014 - surely you've seen Amazon's one click purchase?
I suggest a revamp of this entire ordering process:
(1) Tell the client to set up an Adorama VIP account, then click the link from appleinsider.com to the product they want
(2) the product link page opens (in a new checkout window) with three things to enter: Adorama VIP ID, Adorama VIP Password, Discount code, then click GO
(3) The checkout window redisplays the updated price, then asks for payment info and closes the deal.
The 'help' instructions are simply too long. The Adorama shopping cart UI is really not operable. These are some good deals. My new Mac Mini Server is humming along nicely...
AI - can your confirm that Adorama is an Authorized Apple Reseller?I dont see Adorama on the official apple.com reseller site:http://salesresources.apple.com/sp/catalog/
Please confirm as soon as possible.
It was clearly stated that the promotion was running until the 12th in several places; why did it suddenly change to the 10th? I'm extremely frustrated because I was intending on taking advantage of the deal today but apparently now it's almost $200 more expensive because I have to pay for shipping too.
Is there any chance that this deal can be restored? What happened anyway?
Guys, it was a month-long promotion but, yes, we made a mistake on the expiration date in many articles. Therefore, if you call Adorama's main line (800-223-2500) tonight and say you are calling about the AppleInsider promo, they have been nice enough to agree to honor it by phone for anyone who was expecting to order today. This will only be honored until midnight.
Yes. They are 100% Apple Authorized.
