Article #445 (635 is last): From: aa700@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Michael Current) Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.news Subject: Don's Wacky Deal #3 Reply-To: aa700@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Michael Current) Posted-By: xx004 (Atari SIG) Date: Fri Jul 5 14:07:25 1996 [Image] Don's Wacky Deal #3 TO: Atari Devotees at Large FR: Earthbound Internet Inhabitant (a.k.a. Don Thomas @ Atari) REPLY TO: email@example.com SUBJECT: *VERY* LIMITED OFFER (6/28/96 - 7/17/96)... AND WHILE SUPPLIES LAST LAST REVISED: 6/28/96 3:30 PM Pacific Time [Image] Thanks to everyone participating in my offers. A special thanks to all the international orders from around the world. I know some of you are still waiting and I really appreciate your patience. I have already received a number of inquiries as to whether I will get approval to do yet another sale. Your messages have helped A LOT because I was able to show how much these deals are appreciated by the online community. For what's it's worth, my offers are not extended to any phone, fax, snail mail or reseller orders unless they were initiated by a qualified E-Mail transaction. In other words, these offers are truly exclusive to the online community and no one else. Although it started as a way to clear out badly needed space in the new warehouse, it continues to be a way to move through product quickly with minimal cost absorbing effort. I'm doing my best to find unique new items, although many of them have been already found and dispensed. I'll keep looking, however, and include them as revisions to this offer or any, if any, in the future. I noticed that a LOT of people are enjoying volume discounts by combining orders from families and friends. Thank you for that. Not only do you enjoy the discounts, but we find it easier to pull orders and ship more promptly. I also noticed that a lot of you are reposting this offer in a lot of places. THANK YOU. Please, feel free to tell your on-line friends. In fact, PLEASE send your friends a copy in E-Mail. Okay, now that the intros are past, let's get into the nitty gritty... THIS IS IMPORTANT. If you choose not to read and understand sale terms there's a BIG chance we will reject your order and someone else may beat you to some items you want. Please permit me to be blunt... GREAT PRICES, LOUSY SERVICE The items listed below are available at outstanding values and do NOT include personalized phone services such as phone orders or checking on shipments (until 15 business days have passed - longer for international orders). Your order will be printed and entered and I will contact you ONLY if we determine one or more items cannot be fulfilled. All items are "as-is" and probably don't have boxes or instructions (all games have instructions although they may be photocopies). These are sold as trade show returns, refurbs, store returns, reclaims, employee use items, media review returns, developer on-loan returns, etc. (Some NEW items may be mixed in for fun.) There are NO REFUNDS and the standard 90-day warranty will not apply.... BUT every item is guaranteed to work for a 30-day period or it will be replaced or repaired at Atari's option. Some of the items may have slight scratches or other small cosmetic packaging flaws. None are being sold under new conditions. All items are in limited quantity and subject to prior sale. It will be best to order by credit card so that we can adjust the transaction accurately if we are unable to ship everything requested. I cannot hold product for money orders to arrive. Okay, enough with the lawyer stuff already! Here's how to order... Send me an E-Mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org OR FAX the information to 408/328-0909. Please include your E-Mail address if you are faxing your order. I cannot fill any orders without a qualifying E-Mail address. NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE on these items. You may also snail mail your order with a money order (or credit card) to: Don's Third Big Wacky Deal for Internet Dwellers c/o The Atari Corporation P.O. Box 61657 Sunnyvale, CA 94089-1657 Money Orders, MasterCard or Visa accepted as valid payments. Your order MUST include: [Image] Name (First and Last): [Image] Snail Mail (shipping) address: [Image] City, State, Zip, Province: [Image] Day telephone number: [Image] Night telephone number: [Image] Internet address (important): [Image] Exact payment in Money Order form OR MasterCard/Visa number: [Image] Credit-card expiration date: If you placed a MasterCard or Visa transaction with Atari in the past 120 days, we will be happy to look it up for you. Just give me an idea around the time your last order was placed. You may also leave the credit card number off the order and request someone to call you for it (U.S./Canada only). Please be advised if you are difficult to reach, it can delay your order. Since the prices on these orders are so low, I must change our previous shipping and handling formula a little bit. As a rule now, shipping is $5 for every $50 (or fraction thereof) of your order. in other words, a $148 order will be accessed a $15 shipping and handling charge. Please allow for minor adjustments for unusual order requests. Foreign orders or odd lot orders will have a modest surcharge which cannot be determined until the order is boxed for you. Please allow for shipping costs to vary accordingly on those also. If the amount is significant relative to the size of the order, I will hold the order pending your approval. So are you still with me? (By the way, all prices shown do not include shipping/handling and applicable California taxes which apply if I am shipping to a California address). Prices are all U.S. funds only. One last thing, all items are first come, first serve. Asking questions about the products will not reserve them for you.
Your order will be printed and placed in sequence for the order takers to input. If we have the product and your order is complete and your payment is accepted (approved by the bank), we will finish the order and ship within a couple of business days. If we cannot complete the order for any reason, the order takers will move to the next order and I will reply in E-Mail to you for additional feedback. Please understand, at these prices, we want to prioritize orders we can process. If you require a great deal of service prior to your decision to purchase, please contact your nearest retailer. Please be advised that S&H may be adjusted. If you are ordering heavy items, expect that S&H may reflect that. ATTENTION DEALERS: Yes, you may take part in this offer. All terms apply the same for everyone. No additional discounts or terms apply. BACK (AGAIN) BY POPULAR DEMAND ...CHECK the LYNX Page FOR A COMPLETE GAME LISTING. [Image] Assorted Lynx Software Any 1 = $12 ($12 ea) Any 3 = $33 ($11 ea) Any 5 = $45 ($9 ea) Any 10 = $75 ($7.50 ea) Add identical title = $6.50 ea NEW: Order 30 or more Lynx carts (duplicates or otherwise) and get them all for $6.50 each. NEW: Order a minimum of one title AND provide me with the E-Mail address of a friend who would like to receive notices about my offers and I will add any title you choose for just $4. E-Mail address MUST be new in my database, so contributing more than one would help to locate one that is new. E-Mail address must be accompanied by that user's name and must not ask to be removed when I send them E-Mail. Offer limited to one per customer and order. Note: I can probably get my hands on most any title published by Atari with exceptions to the following: AGAIN, THESE ARE *NOT* CURRENTLY AVAILABLE: [Image] Blue [Image] California [Image] Checkered Lightning Games Flag [Image] Electrocop [Image] Gauntlet [Image] Hard [Image] Lemmings [Image] Lynx Casino Drivin' [Image] Ninja [Image] Ms. Pacman [Image] NFL Gaiden [Image] Warbirds Football [Image] [Image] Paperboy [Image] Zarlor Roadblasters [Image] World Class [Image] Xenophobe Mercenary Soccer Note: Battlewheels, European Soccer Challenge, Bubble Trouble, Super Off Road and Qix are not Atari titles. Please do not ask for third party titles. Another note: Missile Command/Asteroids, Battlezone 2000, Joust and Robotron do qualify in my offers. To see a complete list, visit the Lynx Page on the Atari web site. Note that no matter how many you buy, you get the second (or third, etc.) of the same title for only $6.50 each. $6.50 titles do not count toward volume discounts, but they are a great way to get multiplayer titles. LYNX ADD-ONS......... [Image] [Image] Lynx pouch $ 6 each (2 for $ 9) [Image] Lynx carry case $15 each (2 for $20) $Ê4 each [Image] Battery pack $Ê8 each [Image] Lynx power supply $Ê2.50 each [Image] ComLynx cable [Image] Deal of deals... $1 BATTERY PACK with Power Supply purchase (limit one for one on battery pack deal) NEED A LYNX?... [Image] Lynx with 4 (random)games - $55 each (2 for $80) Note: These are systems with 1 of 5 different prepacked software assortments. No, I cannot guarantee what titles or that more than one purchased system at this price will have different games. BLUE LIGHTNING DEMO CARDS... (STILL MORE LEFT) [Image] When Atari discovered that the chain stores we're not too good at keeping the Lynx turned on and "playing" something in their stores, Atari manufactured specially designed "EVERON" Lynx systems. The systems had the on/off button shorted out so that the system would automatically come on when the stores lights were turned on each day in the morning. (I understand B&C Computers has some of these EVERON systems. Their number is 408/986-9960.) To accompany those systems, Atari also provided special versions of BLUE LIGHTNING so customers could see a game in play on the Lynx no matter when they looked at it in the glass case. I have found a limited number of these demo cards and there are still plenty left for another offer. They are labeled as demos and the Blue Lightning game that plays on it is NOT interactive. No Lynx controls work with this cartridge. I can offer them to collectors for $5 each or $3 if the order totals $25 or more. A DIE HARD FAVORITE... [Image] Jaguar Demo Kiosk - $150 plus $130 S&H These are the big, 200 lb. jobbers we take to trade shows. The ones I can sell are trade show returns and may have minor flaws (like a little sticky tape that comes off with lighter fluid). You have to provide the monitor and the Jaguar. The SC1435 is a perfect fit (No, I don't have any). The SC1224 works okay too, but you need to find a cable (or use ICD's CATbox ). I have SC1224's listed below. If you have seen these things, you know how much fun it would be to own one. Perfect for bedrooms, rec rooms, the garage, or in the lobbies of professional offices where children could be entertained. If you haven't seen these things, then picture a cabinet that looks just like an arcade machine. Convenient shelf for small monitor and there's room for the Jaguar AND the CD-ROM (barely). OKAY WE STARTED SELLING A FEW OF THESE, SO YOU MUST LIKE THE PRICE... [Image] SC1224 Color Monitor - $18 plus $20 S&H This monitor offers gorgeous color resolution for any ST-compatible Atari computer. It will also serve well for the Jaguar if you get yourself a compatible cable (I don't have the cables). At this price, you should serious consider a back-up and buy a couple of them. STILL AROUND FOR THOSE WHO WANT IT... [Image] PCM124 PC Monochrome 12" - $20 plus $25 S&H Perfect for those you you wishing to complete your Atari museum of days gone by. THE BINDERS ARE POPULAR, SO I AIN'T MESSING WITH A GOOD THING!... [Image] Atari Binders 1 = $2.00 ($2.00 ea) 3 = $4.00 ($1.33 ea) 5+ = $1.00 ea These are cool 3-ring binders; all in great condition. All from the Warner days. Great for office, school, collections, whatever. DRIVE'S TO DRIVE YOU CRAZY... [Image] SF354 Single-Sided Drive - $16 each plus $4 S&H GREAT DEAL #2 only $2 with any order over $25 great for classic 16-bit computer games or applications. BUY ONE, TAKE IT APART, CHECK IT OUT!... [Image] XM301 8-bit modem - $4 PORTFOLIO PHINDS........ [Image] [Image] Smart Parallel $5 each Interface $5 each [Image] PC Card Drive 1 = $12 ($12 ea) 3 = $27 ($9 ea) [Image] 64K Memory Card 5 = $35 ($7 ea) (batteries may be doorknob10+ = $5 ea dead) 520STe SPECIAL SOFTWARE FIND... [Image] DS4921 Discover Extra Software - $18 each The discover pack is a collector's treasure. It is a specially boxed set of software distributed with the 520STe in Europe and some made it to the U.S. for possible pack-ins here. There are 5 disks. Contents include a "Language Disk", "Final Flight Program Disk", "Final Flight Data Disk", "Sim City/Robot Monsters Program Disk", "9 Lives Program Disk" and a specially bound book with instructions for the entire set. There's only a few of these sets and I expect them to go fast. ST GAME and LEARNING SOFTWARE ARCHIVES...

[Image] Atari Patches - SOLD OUT! Federated Pens - .15 each Atari "Player on Board" plastic diamonds for windows includes suction cup - SOLD OUT! ONE GHOST COSTUME LEFT!... [Image] If you really want a BIG piece of Atari's 8-bit history, here's a chance to get a unique item that I want, but don't have space to store it. This goes back to the Pac-Man days. I have 1 ghost costume (character costume a la Disneyland, promotional events). The good news is that we'll take only $100 for it, but the bad news is that it costs another $100 S&H to ship. If you want it, we're talking a near refrigerator size carton, so you better have storage space and you WON'T be able to hide this purchase from the wife (significant other). First come, first serve, U.S. shipping destinations ONLY. JAGUAR... [Image] The Jaguar is a really cool and economical way to play impressive games like NBA JAM, MYST, DRAGON's LAIR, IRON SOLDIER, ALIEN vs. PREDATOR, TEMPEST 2000, DEFENDER 2000, MISSILE COMMAND 3D and more. You can get a refurb Jaguar (equivalent-to-new) for only $55 through this offer. It includes one controller, TV connections and a power supply. See Atari's Web Domain at http://www.atari.com for a list of software available from Atari. Our Web Site sometimes has a hidden coupon offer. If you want to know about these, send me your E-Mail address. ### END OF FILE ### [Image] [Main Menu] [Image] -- Michael Current, 8-Bit Atari FAQ & Vendor/Developer Lists maintainer User groups: CAIN, SPACE, NWPAC / mailto:email@example.com
