    Its mostly the shop owner that loses out, monies come straight from their bank account.
    Still I woudnt send any unencrypted card detailsvia email,I guess you coulduse pgp or do it the old fashioned way, over the phone. Its what people used to do, before the internet.

    Yeah I've already had to go through this a few times due to data breeches and when you're finances are all tied to paying off all your bills with it instead of just paying with a check, it really becomes a huge hassle when you're updating every single account and even more infuriating when when you've found out you've missed one. At any rate, I was just wondering if anyone had gone through the same type of thing, I guess not so snail mail it is.

    [So I've been working with a MSI representative to do this trade in program but I'm having issues with their fax number where it's been non-stop busy/non-responsive. Has anyone gotten their fax number included with the CC authorization form to work or was given another number to use? The representative I'm working with wants me to email it as a pdf but there's no way in heck I'm going to send it over in a non-encrypted email.[/QUOTE]

    My wife had to print it, fill it out, scan it and, send and e-mail with it attached.
    It worked because it has been added to my credit card.
    Although it's on my credit card I have not received any reply from MSI after that. The only reason I know it's on my credit card is I called to see if there was a charge on it.

    BREAKTHROUGH for Australian customers. After 3 months of waiting, I finally get this email:

    Happy Holiday. Thanks for your inquiry.
    The Trade-in program in offering now in AU and the deadline of the inquiry will be on 31st Jan.

    We will have a discount amount based on the value of your on-hand machine then you will be able to use that discount on the new GTX 10 series GT model you choose.

    The value of your laptop will be determined by the SRP at the price you purchase and the age of your notebook. You will be able to use this to trade up to selected MSI Notebooks featuring Nvidia GTX 1070 / GTX 1080.


    According to the data you provided to us, your discount amount will be AUD 3,709 based on two evaluations as follows:

    1. The original buy price of your on-hand machine MSI GT72S 6QF is AUD 5,299

    2. Your invoice date is 2016/4/1; we can accept the machine as long as it’s within two years warranty.


    You will be able to use the discount for new GTX 10xx series GT series models. Here is the model list you can choose, but please be noted that the stocks are moving every day,

    A breakthrough indeed! That's good news for Australia. And that means that other MSI offices around the world should be able to arrange something like this as well. The only thing that is still ridiculuos is the time frame. I mean 1 month and the rest will be left behind?
    I also don't really understand this line: "The laptop will have to be within its two years warranty". It works for laptops with 900 series, I guess, as they were released a bit later... but what about those with 800 series?
