Best Buy honored Sony's "educational discount"
I got fed up with the Sony Style online store--Campus Store was down for days, shuttled around to various no-nothing people when I called, finally found out that the Daily was not eligible for the 10% discount, anyway.
After sleeping on it, I decided that the Touch was the best bang for the buck for my purposes. It irked me to still get a Sony after they irked me, so I decided I'd buy it at Best Buy. On a whim I asked at their customer service if they would price-match, and they happily did! So, Sony may have still gotten my money, but not as much of it as they would have if they had better direct sales service .

Good for you, and poo on them. I hate it when companies seem to do everything they can to discourage me from buying from them.....
Enjoy your new reader!
