    I placed an order for a Macbook Pro 13" yesterday afternoon. I have been called 3 TIMES to verify the billing address in the last 15 hours!!!! The CC billing/shipping address match on my account. WTF is up with this company? Plus, their website says that it is in stock (as well as pbcentral) but I have been told it is backordered until the 19th. A little availability bait & switch if you ask me. With the rebate I will save $115 over ordering direct from Apple, which is considerable, but damn...:mad:

    P.S.: waiting for more calls!

    There are numerous threads on MacMall's service.

    I have had nothing but good experiences, but the whole CC checking thing is a little ridiculous, but I guess that it's better safe then sorry?

    I've dealt with MacMall a lot over the years with no real problems. The credit thing could be due to the fact that they now use BillMeLater as the underwriter.

    You can get any Mac from MacMall and then register it with Apple. Same support etc.

    To Macmall/Clubmacs credit, I have received a UPS tracking #. Not active yet, but perhaps later tonight. Rant off- carry on...

    Lucky, I got charged tax (MN) and ended up paying more than I would have at my local Apple Store.
