    I saw this over on DVDTalk and thought I should share. Circuit CIty sent out a flyer for their Christmas specials with the SR600 labeled with the price for the 500 model. I just got back from Circuit City - I showed the manager the ad and he had no problem selling it for that price (but I think I'll be the only one getting it at that store...). If you're looking for a new receiver it's worth a try, it might not work but there's a chance.

    There's a huge thread about this over at Fat Wallet in the Hot Deals forum. People are saying now that CC has a sign next to the receiver saying "Sorry for the misprint". How deal for those who were able to cash in early.

    Still a possibility for a AmEx BVG!
    Congrats on your score.

    Don't they still have to honor it since they advertised it?

    What are the prices for the units? I remember back when the Onkyo 838 came out, I negotiated them down from $1500 to $1150 with free 1 year financing.

    A while back I got my onkyo 600 for $399 because someone was
    nice enough to fax me a copy of there receipt and the store matched it even know it was a different cc location. If you can get the 299 receipt they should have to match it....skip talking to the sales people and go to the store manager.
    That is what I had to do to get mine for $399....I still have that receipt if anyone is interested.....
    If you look on there internet site it says the following:
