If you scroll back through the pages of this thread, you'll find where I ordered my 396t NEW and total before shipping was $408.00 With 21 dollar 2nd day delivery my grand total was $429.

I guess you are right, if in fact I got the full 25% and not just the $120.00 they stated. I ordered mine yesterday "Like New" with $21 2nd day delivery for $440.99 shipped. That's still not a bad deal, even without a coupon. Now only if it was still in effect, I could have got this one for less than $350!

Since I started this thread and dragged my feet till the code expired, I will post an update. I emailed Uniden asking them if they could process an order with the coupon even though it had expired. I just received a response from them with an order # and amount. ($426.38) I believe the order # was generated when I tested the code, but I'm not sure about that. So you might try emailing presales@uniden.com and see what they say about it. I'm waiting to hear back from Uniden on how to proceed from here to pay for the order.

EDIT: Well apparently I must have entered my credit card at the time I was testing, but never finished the order. I just checked my account online and $426.38 had been taken out. So the price of the scanner was $408.38 and shipping was $18.00.

I tried emailing the address that Uniden supplied in an email about an order that wasn't confirmed and they never did respond, so I ordered the 396. $440 with shipping, still saved $100.

Does this discount imply that sales are not going well for Uniden?

I've supported them with several scanners in the past and I don't need another 396T.

Maybe this is a buy old product (new product due any day?) tactic?

I so love my 396T except the blue. Sent off a message to Uniden about replacing the black text on blue to black text on "legal pad" yellow. They never replied.

So for the 25% deals for new users, it's a tough call.

I didn't get an email with this offer, just their piece of crap "newsletter." Are we talking about the same sales piece Uniden called a newsletter?

I began a thread on that "newsletter" weeks ago but it died out pretty fast.

Probably not.

There's always eBay.

Possibly, but I don't really care right now. I need a digital scanner as our city / state police has gone digital. The 396T will suit me just fine.

Yellow? Might be easier to buy some yellow LEDs and mod it yourself.

Well it's too late now anyway, the deal is dead unless you can sweet talk the sales people into giving you the discount.

I'd received some email about a new newsletter and I had to sign back up for it. When I did that, that's when I received the 25% coupon code.

Good deal... I've been enjoying my new "396" toy since I found your thread. Glad I acted on it because I was ready to buy one. I saved nearly 100 dollars. In fact I'm at work sitting here listening to everything on it right now. It does really good on picking up 800mhz trunking.

I took your lead and e-mailed this address to ask about the coupon's expiration. The reply I got back today said that they were sorry for the confusion and would be crediting $104.99 back to my credit card. That makes the total for this scanner $315!! You can't beat a $230 price difference from the New model. I'm really glad I went ahead and ordered it. The "Like New" 396's are all gone already.

Of course this was too good to be true. Fedex guy showed up today but without my 396. Apparently that truck got delayed or something and got to the processing facility too late to be delivered. I called them and they said they're not opened on the weekends so I would have to wait until Monday for it to be delivered. Argh!!! Oh well, I guess that will give me time to find all of my frequencies and put them into ARC396.

Wow, what an awesome deal! Congrats man, glad it worked out! Uniden seems very helpful with this coupon code, so I'd encourage others to try emailing them and see what happens. 'Kira' was very helpful in getting my order processed with the coupon.

You should get a redund on the shipping id you paid for 2nd day or next day.

Unfortunately it was just Fedex Ground, so I doubt they will refund shipping costs for that. Tracking now shows it out for delivery 'the next business day' LOL. Argh! At least my rechargeable AA batteries arrived today, so I can get those ready for Monday.

You can get them cheaper than that on other websites. I'd still encourage emailing presales@uniden.com and asking them if they will still honor the code for you. The worst that will happen is they say no.
