    Joined so I could say thanks,

    I had been waiting on this to release and while searching the net for more info I found this forum. I was able to order my new 256GB Blade from Microsoft with the student discount and no tax. Saved me nearly $500 in all and it should arrive by Wed.

    Thanks a lot, Terry

    P.S. With the saved money I can get a really good Mouse, trackpad, and other accessories (Already ordered the Armor Case)

    As you guys frequently talk about ordering from the Microsoft store with student discount, how high is the discount?
    I assume 10? I couldn't find the info on the website

    Yes, I received 10% off. I selected the Blade after choosing my school and it was automatically discounted in the cart. No code or anything needed.

    Somehow I ordered one from Microsoft with a student discount and had trouble with my credit card going through, Bank of America called me to confirm my purchase, but it still wouldn't go through. I called Microsoft and ended up on the phone for 90 minutes, got my case escalated to a claims department, they called me back and asked me to try and process the order through the web site. Started the process over again and when I got to check out my discount had jumped to 529.80 somehow! I put the order through and ended up paying 2322.83 for the 512 version with overnight shipping!! It hasn't shipped yet, I don't think they ship over the weekend. I just hope it they don't cancel my order, as the discount seems to be an error on their part. :)

    I had the same issue. I used my Alaska Airlines card (Bank of America) and they refused the order. I called the bank and they removed the block but it still wouldn't go through afterwards. I made the same call to Microsoft and got it escalated but before they could call me back I tried to place the order again from another Microsoft account and noticed the Order Number was the same as the one that failed (On a completely separate login). At this point I figured something was not getting reset so I cleared my browser (CTR + SHIFT + DEL) and added the item back to my cart. This time the order went through no problem.

    However, It sounds like you definitely got the better end of the deal, Congrats I hope it all goes through for you.

    Sorry to hear you didn't get the same deal. I still don't know how it happened? They could still cancel it at some point too.

    Does anyone else have the keyboard backlight flicker randomly?

    Hey, I noticed mine would flicker once while playing every so often so I looked in the Razer synapse settings and saw a setting enabled that would turn off the keys lights after 15 minutes of being idle. I disabled this setting and haven't noticed it since.
