I bought the Plextor 8/4/32 last week (Th 10/19) when I first heard about the deal and paid $148.97 after the -$30 coupon + $12.87 tax +$7.15 shipping. I just got it today (Mon 10/23) and I found out that there is the free shipping promotion going on too. So I called up the CSR at Buy.com after doing some research on returning an item. I would have had to pay shipping to return the item, only to re-buy it and wait again for it to get here. The CSR guy was cool and credited my account (the CC that I used to buy it with) the $7.15 for the shipping. I still got worked on the tax a little bit, but I would rather pay the little extra than have to go through all that trouble again.
In case anyone else out there bought it last week and paid for shipping, call the CSR guys at 888-880-1030.
