No, but having been to a Sony Retail Store, I can predict that very likely they wouldn't know a translator from an ereader, so I would definitely give it a shot.

That was a little bit snarky, so let me also say that I have found the people in the store to be very nice. Unlike dealing with Sony the corporation. Yet another reason to try the store.

Hmm. I put my reader in the mail seven days ago. Nothing showing up with my tracking number yet. They did say it'd take a while and that is the worst part so far, a few weeks without an e-reader.

I'll be stopping by the store tonight or tomorrow. I'll let you know my experience with them then (also if I immediately get my eCoupon or not). I really don't think I could go 1 month without a reader. I used to use my laptop 5 years ago but my newer laptop is much bigger and I definitely do not see myself going to bed with it.

I mailed in my reader twelve days ago, on the 5th, and still haven't heard from them. I suspect Sony may be trying to avoid offering sale prices when there is an added $75 credit. When I traded in another item six months ago, I received confirmation in less than a week.

Just out of curiosity, what does it say under status for "estimated" date to be received at recycler? I mailed mine Monday Nov. 8th and it still says they are waiting to receive it with an estimated date of Nov. 20. I never thought it would be that long. If I'd known it was going to take this long I would've paid to ship it myself!

I'm going crazy without my Reader!

Trade-in at the store if possible

Tonight I stopped by the Sony Style Store at the mall to ask about the Trade-in and hopefully buy a new reader. They accepted my very old eBookman and gave me the $75 credit right away. Well, after about 20 minutes of me walking them through the process and them finding the right employee with the right passwords to log in, then I got the credit. I was even able to use the coupon/credit right away. I bought a Black 650 for $125 ($140 with tax). So if you have a store near you, going in is a better option than mailing it in, especially with the current sale prices. They did not yet have the new 950 readers in stock only 900s.

Wow, okay. I want to send in ours and trade up for a newer model, but my husband has become very attached to it, and I doubt he would be willing to give up his Reader for a month.

We have a store about 10 miles away, so I'll check it out. Thanks!

The estimated status date for my reader to be received at recycle is Nov. 19. Since the nearest Sony Style store is about 150 miles away, I didn't have a choice. But, that is obviously the way to go if you have a retail store nearby. I'm a little annoyed with Sony, but, on the other hand, they are in business to make money. Well, that's what I try to tell myself.

Unrelated question: Why does it indicate I sent this message at 11:55 AM, when it is 6:55 AM here?

Huh. Too bad I mailed it. I'm only an hour away from a Sony store. My estimate says 11/24. Yep, starting to panic without a decent reader. My iPhone isn't cutting it for hours at a pop, lol. Buy some p-books? Sacrilege!

Just talked with a guy at the Sony Style store and he said they're having a promotion through 11/27 of $50 off the 950. So with the $75 store credit (you can bring in the old reader to the Sony store), you can get a new 950 for $175. That's a great deal.
