As mentioned in another thread on this forum, I price matched the C500.1 amp from Electronics Express (EE) over to Sounddomain (SD). Here is the story below (for those interested, otherwise skip to the very bottom) :p
Initially, SD said that it wouldn't qualify as a price match because those prices at EE were closeouts (which is true). They also claimed that EE wasn't an authorized dealer (but that claim is false).
So, despite the rejection in that same message, SD said they would reduce the price of the C500.1 amp, anyways. Maybe it was because I am a repeat customer or because SD wanted to liquidate some excess inventory or even a combination of the two; but regardless, SD gave me a coupon that discounted the C500.1 to just above the $249 that EE was selling them at. :D
Thus, the coupon price for the C500.1 amp is at $263.xx plus actual shipping. For me, the total shipped price came out to $275.xx for that BNIB, fully authorized C500.1 Polk amp.
I went ahead and made the C500.1 purchase and the coupon is indeed legitimate. However, the coupon expires on Tuesday, 02/14/06 (Valentines day). So, hurry and make this your Valentines day gift before the deadline. Since you all are fellow Polk enthusiasts, I want to share the love. :)

NOTE: The above coupon code is ONLY for the C500.1 amp. I did not try to price match the C400.4 amp because I had already bought the discounted C300.2 amp from Sounddomain.
