While I sympathize with non-Americans on this... the holiday isn't until Monday (9/6) and most sales dont even start until the Friday before (9/3).. that fact that they started it when they announce it; today (9/1) cant be a bad thing.
I've had plenty of occasion to buy something and have it go on sale the next day or so; think grocery store.
i dont like the fact that some items i would like to get i am not able to due to my rank.
i should be able to purchase an item but not have it activate until the requirments are met (i.e. VA, CPT, etc...)
a savings of 20% on the larger ticket prices is decent, but now i cant take advantage of it...sucks...
i think most of you arent smart at all, why would u think such an item that just came out would be on sale, grow up. if you dont want to buy it then use the free one jess. bunch of whinning kids with no brains, the ship will be on sale the next major holiday slow pokes
