I think that time-constricted 10% coupons that I got are mostly useless, especially since there is not much to use them on considering just 5 mo (and with laate jan shipping more like 4 mo) until halving.

All you got was 10% coupons?

No 30% ones?

BTW

I got

some 10%  yet to use
some 30%  used them all
some btc     $114 used worth

credits  275 and 1185  used the 1185

 and trying to use the 275  along with an 81 dollar coupon on a t17

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

The 10% coupons are for the T17 and T17E purchases that have been shipped at end December.

They have face values of either $67 or $140 of the ones I have seen. And they expire 31st Jan

yeah

I have one of each
  41 10%
140 10%
467 10%
689 10%

all expire in 26 days.

I also have a 275  credit

which they say I have and are yet to post it.

My goal is to buy a t17  using the 140 coupon and the 275 credit

If they do it and ship it I will be square with them.

Assuming my s17 pro ships  between jan 11-20

With luck  by the end of the month  I will have  2 units a t17 and a s17 pro.

making me squared up with them.

Might as well use the $41 one as you'll only end up with being able to use 10%  of the value of the final price of the T17 after you take the credit off, which will be about $543 so $54.30 credit on any of the 10% vouchers. Sell the others.

the 10% "of order" sucks - I miss the days where the coupon was good as long as it was not more than 50% of cost.

Yeah, my best coupon back in the days was a 400 USD coupon for the Antminer S2,
which was my second gear after a S1 unit.

S1 + S2 combo was a perfect kit for home mining..

I got an email follow up about the 275 credit I thought I had due.

I was told I had been given  a 1139 credit and a 114 refund which is true.
I was told this was all I was entitled to.

That the 275 credit I wanted for my newest purchase had been included in my 1139 credit.

I said I would check  my records.

I reviewed every purchase I made from August to Dec.

I added subtracted and  I have come to the conclusion.  That the 1139 credit did include my  275 adjustment I still thought was due to me.

So at this time bitmain  fully  credited me all due to me

and fully refunded all due to me..

They  owe me 1 s17 pro due to ship jan 11- 20.

all in all

all s9k      have been good gear.                 4
every t17  has been good gear.                 2 or 3
every t17+ has been better then good.      only  1
every s17 has been good gear.                  about 3  purchased
every s17 pro has been better then good.  about 16 purchased by me and partners

the 2 17e's suck they use a lot of power. and were late.

As much as I don't like what bitmain does in general if they send my the final s17 pro in a week or 2  I would give them a  9 of 10 rating for the feb 2019 to feb 2020 time period.

on the 6ht of Jan, I have my reminder pop-up that it has been 1 month exactly since I have been promised that I will have my refund of overpayment done by this date.

I have emailed to enquire about the refund as it has been 1 month and got this:

Code:
Carol (Bitmain)
Jan 7, 11:01 CST

Hello ******,

Thanks for your consultation!

We have pushed our finance team to expedite the refund process, [b]but due to the new year settlement, there probably will be several days later,[/b] please wait patiently, thanks.

Please let us know if you have additional questions or concerns.

Best regards,
Carol
​BITMAIN

after that, my reply:

Jan 7, 13:38 CST

Dear Carol,

Thank you for your reply.

How long are several days, please?

Under 5 business days, yes?

I look forward to hearing from you

-------------------------------

Kind regards,
******

i have managed to get this:

Carol (Bitmain)

Hello ******,

Thanks for your consultation!

Yes, you can check the refund status next Wednesday, thanks.

Please let us know if you have additional questions or concerns.

Best regards,
Carol
​BITMAIN

and now waiting patiently to see as already I have been delayed 11 days (9 workings days) above the initial 1 month.
guess they are hoping BTC will rally more.

this is the 1st refund, waiting for the 2nd refund reminder to pop-up to email them again to see how long they will delay that one.

I'm also waiting patiently.  I got the sane responses to my emails.  I see the refund amount is now removed from my Bitmain account credit amount.  But yet to receive it

so i've got two  10% coupons, each one of $ 689 value. what do i do with it? i don't need more machines atm. can i sell the coupons? anybody interested?

You can sell them, but they don't worth much unfortunately, the average price for these coupons in China is about 15-20% of their face value, so each of these coupons are worth about a $100-$140.

Also there is a problem with these large value coupons, they only make sense for large orders due to the 10% rule, for example see below

Here is an attempt to buy 1*Antminer T17e - 53TH/s

1-Using a 140$ coupon



2-Using a 175$ coupon



Basically the same discount regardless of the coupon value, so a 689$ coupon is only worth it for an order that is above $3060, because for anything less than that, buying a 306$ coupon for 45-60$ would give you the same discount.

I wish that they would send my final unit the s17 pro  I would then be fully caught up and squared away with them.

I would consider buying a t17+ 58th due in feb if they would only square me up on the s17 pro.

Update s17 pro on its way from, malaysia due the 17 of jan.

this will have me fully settled with bitmain.

Coins are up over 8500

The diff will be under 8%  Some time this evening.

So things are looking better for mining.


I won't be posting today  as my wife had to go to the hospital  she had the  flu turn into pneumonia and is  quite ill.

Hope your wife gets better.

yeah she is stable.  antibiotics seem to be helping her.

I am also sick just not as bad as her.

Kind of puts all this into prospective.  It is nice to play with the asics and the other gear, but your health of yourself and your family is pretty much priceless. It is far more important then this is.
  
I just woke up to cough and hack and etc. So I went to website as no-one is home and I can not sleep. I will visit the wife in hospital tomorrow.

My local hospital has 215 beds out of 284 filled with people with respiration infections. Nurses were telling me it is the worst they have ever been. In terms of flu/pneunomia etc.

Got to politely keep on them:

I just sent this email in response to my request for refund.

Quote from: PopoJeff
On 12/6/2019, you expected one month to process this refund. It is now 1/3/2020. I hope the process will be completed shortly.

Still waiting.........................................................

And waiting.........................................................

And waiting.........................................................


I retire in 2027. Hoping I get it by then
