In stock at Future Shop stores today

I just checked on the black Vox, and it is showing in stock at most Future Shop stores around me in Guelph Ontario today! They are also including a $10 Kobo gift card with in store purchases.

Future shop computers didn't know about the $10 coupon. But I'll be printing off the web page and going back.

Hmm, so maybe the black Voxs had the promo attached to them but my ice blue did not.

There was no sticker on the box or anything, It was advertised in the Future shop flyer.

RoxyJ, sure but the folks at the service desk told me that the computers would automatically give you the discount coupon if they were in there. Which it didn't for my so I'm speculating that the coupon code was there for the black Vox but not the icy blue which I chose.

If people are looking for them some futureshops don't have them on display. The one I went to had 5 black Voxs but they were all in an overflow cabinet and not with the other e-readers/tablets. It took them awhile to find them.

kaikara, agreed. They weren't on display and the sales droids didn't have a clue. Fortunately he happened to notice them in a locked cabinet which had poor lighting so it was hard to see them.

At first he was hearing me say Kobo Box which didn't help matters.

I picked mine up at Future Shop in Red Deer this AM. They have $10 gift cards. My salesperson told me that I would get the coupon when I logged onto my account, not at the store. I had a printout of the webpage with me, so he ran a $10 gift card through at the same time I bought the Vox and it gave the $10 credit for it as part of the transaction.

I have no WiFi at work, so I won't get to use the Vox until I get home tonight. I am charging it though .

Yes, I did. I called Kobo help desk and the support there cheerfully refunded my order which they said should have gone out on the 28th, and somehow did not.

Cancelled my pre-order too on Friday night after I got black Vox at Future Shop. Took a while to get my $10 card, looks like I was first person to buy one of these in Whitby, no demo out and I had to ask them to look at the web site to confirm the card...sure enough, she asked around and found someone who knew how to process.
Haven't heard back from Kobo themselves however for the cancellation, order is still pending although TA told me I would get called or emailed to confirm!

You should get the $10 gift card with all colour choices. If you jump over to Future Shop's website, you'll see that the Ice Blue model is also supposed to come with a $10 Kobo gc if purchased in store. I had to go back to FS with my receipt to get my gc since I wasn't automatically given one when I purchase my Hot Pink Vox.
