    I was interested int he fondue maker, but I read the reviews, and apparently you have to pre-melt the chocolate, which is why I wanted this in the first place.

    On the page for the Red Kiss fondue warmer there is a deal where you can get the red, silver, and gold ones for $18.17. I’m thinking a fondue party with your choice of dessert fondues.

  4. Yoko Broke Up The Beatles says:

    If a red Hersey’s kiss-shaped fondue maker is too pretentious for you, do not worry. It also comes in GREEN.

    Note to anyone interested in the Sony Alpha: I just went through all the hoops, got approved for the card, and tried to buy the camera and it kept coming up $499.99 instead of $317. I finally called Sony and they said they are having a technical problem right now and to try back in 24 hours.

  6. battra92 says:

    Hmm, that’s not a bad deal on the camera. I just bought a Nikon D40 so I’m set. If I didn’t have to sign up for the card I’d get that for a family member. I don’t think messing with my CR (adding more credit isn’t always good) for a camera I don’t need is a good thing.

  7. lastingsmilledge says:

    the consumerist telling people to sign up for a credit card just to save a few bucks on a dslr purchase…. that makes complete sense, eh?

    • SpaceBat_GitEmSteveDave says:

      @lastingsmilledge: Yes. Yes it does. Consumerist doesn’t say NO credit cards, they say if you can use it responsibly, then do so. If it’s advantageous, then take advantage. But recognize and understand when to say “stop”.

  8. CuriousO says:

    I just signed up too,but unfortunately they said they’ll contact me within 30 days. By that time if I even get it the promo would have ended. Oh well, I’ll just cancel it.

  9. hank18 says:

    I just tried for the camera special, too. When I get to my cart, it gives me the balance due in points rather than dollars…and the points I need add up to $499, not the $317 they are advertising. I can’t call Sony now because I’m at work…damn, I was excited about getting my first dSLR…by the way, anyone else notice that on the dealnews site, they advertise the A100, but when you get to Sony’s site, it’s the A200?

  10. pkoutoul says:

    @hank18: That’s exactly what I got. The CSR on the phone was familiar with the issue and assured me that within 24 hours it would be fixed and would only charge me 317,000 points instead of 499,000.

    @lastingsmilledge: I will gladly take on a new credit card at this point because I fear that other cards are being cancelled or reduced. Adding a new card to my portfolio reduces my debt to credit limit ratio. Just because I have it doesn’t mean I have to use it.

  11. pkoutoul says:

    Clarifying what I said above to hank18: Do not place the order now. Wait until the issue is fixed and it will come up as 317 instead of 499.

  12. pkoutoul says:

    @hank18: Me too! I am excited about this. I have been planning to buy a Rebel XT but this is the best deal on a current model DSLR I have seen.

    Thanks Consumerist!

    • hank18 says:

      @pkoutoul: I know they said to wait 24 hours, but I keep checking every few minutes to see if it’s been corrected. :) I can’t help it…

    • hank18 says:

      @pkoutoul: It’s fixed!! Here I go!

    • Ratty says:

      @pkoutoul: Err… the body of the camera doesn’t matter half as much as the lens you affix to it. if you were going to buy a Rebel for Canon lenses, don’t suddenly buy the Sony. I know there are a million people out there who think DSLR = awesomesauce photos all the time, and those same million people use a single lens on automode all the time and are better off with a point and shoot. :/

  13. pkoutoul says:

    Yeah! I just ordered mine.

  14. Stoli says:

    For the Xbox 360 headset, does anyone know if it will plut in the keypad attachment that’s available for the Xbox 360 controllers? There’re two different types of headsets (with different plugs); it looks like a good headset, but I like to have the keypad attached (gives it a bit more weight).

  15. wikkit says:

    I just ordered this as well. I wasn’t crazy about Sony calling them ‘points’ instead of dollars, but as long as I charge $3000 to the card in 6 months, they reward me with an extra $200, bringing the total camera cost to $16.50!!!

    (note to the Consumerist gods: I will pay off the full balance at the end of each month, please don’t smite me with lighting bolts and rebuke!)

  16. wikkit says:

    My prior comment was meant to nest under Pkoutoul’s (blasted comment system!). It was the dSLR that I bought.

  17. fatetwister64 says:

    Anyone know anything about the one TB hard drive? Looks like a fair deal.

    • gStein_*|bringing starpipe back|* says:

      @fatetwister64: i’d avoid it. newegg doesn’t seem to give simpletech very good reviews, and if you must get a simpletech, get [] itat least has 2 drives inside the enclosure (instead of 1) so if (when) the drives fail, you’ve only lost half your data. and that drive is only $10 more (plus shipping)
      100 isn’t an OMG MUST BUY NOW price, so i’d wait a bit and find a deal on something that’s rated better than 2 eggs (out of 5)

  18. fdawg4l says:

    I jumped on the camera deal over the weekend (specifically, 6/22 evening) and got the confirmation email that the camera will be charged to my cc when it ships. It’s now 3 days later (6/25) and never got an email saying it shipped like the first email said I would.

    Did anyone get any follow up emails saying the camera shipped? Has anyone received the camera already?

    I can’t find an order status option anywhere and am a little worried.
