    They sent me an email with a coupon for $10. Great, except I can't checkout. I get to the last step and it gives me a server error or "page doesn't exist" message. Tried a number of times over last few days. Anyone have an idea what's going on?

    Redeem the coupon before placing an order. I have Titan A. E. on the way for $12 shipped.

    Yeah, I did that. My point was that I can't get to the last part of the checkout process - instead I get a "page no longer exists message". I have tried everything. Hopefully they will respond to my email. I can't believe I am the only one having this problem?

    Their web team obviously has no idea what they are doing. This has existed for a couple of days now.
    If you look at the site you go to after seeing CC number info you will notice to they scripted a to insert text with a few "" instead of "/" so you literally can't place the order.

    Ahhhh, I noticed the reversed slashes. Nice strategy - offer a coupon and then prevent it from being used (offer ends the 22nd). I just hope they see the fatal flaw.
