This is a great idea / thread and should definitely be expanded on. I would like to see a forum where users could submit ideas for target businesses and then 'vote up' other to form consensus. Maybe i could create it on reddit if people are interested...

Have you done business/trades with Roger? If so, and a success then great for you. I tried recently and it failed miserably. I recovered my funds fortunately, never thought Roger would keep them and he didn't, but the experience definitively turned my wife off to Bitcoin trades. Now I have to do it without her permission.

Roger has done much for the Bitcoin community and I applaud that, however MD needs some massaging with regard to how they treat customers...and not just for Bitcoin trades, I have pointed several California and US based educational institutions to buy fiber/other products from MD for years, they have reported satisfaction in most but not all transactions.

Keep up the Bitcoin support Roger, but massage Bitcoin physical trade TXs and customer experience a bit. I think it would prove itself on your bottom line.

Trent,
Thank you so much for your past referrals. 
From what I recall of your specific order, you were trying to buy Bitcoins from me via credit card.
The card and information you were using set off just about every red flag possible indicating credit card fraud.
I am not saying that I think you actually were trying to commit CC fraud,  but it didn't look safe enough from my end to justify the risk.
I don't think I even billed your CC,  so I never even had your money.
Unfortunately we have had to reject between 1/3 to 1/2 of our Bitcoin orders due to the high risk of fraud, 
but I am glad to say after selling tens of thousands of dollars worth of Bitcoins by CC and Paypal,  I have not had a single fraudulent order slip through. 
If anyone else is ever unhappy with an order,  they are welcome to contact me about it directly at any time.   
I will personally work to take care of any problem.
roger@memorydealers.com

I will continue to push business MD's way. In my book, Roger still rocks, although my wife (whose CC it is) vowed I would not have sex until I sent Roger a nasty email. Roger, I have to PM you something nasty, sorry.

The only reason I know this was a fudge on MD/Roger's part (or likely his processor, somebody perhaps in TO or Vallejo?) is because in the late 90's I wrote much of the pattern match code that FD used for AVS (the backend that Visa/MC used/uses). Granted, they may not still use that today but I feel confident I know how they work. They do put the fear of God in merchants. Roger, get to know (personally) some of the folks here. I am in your neighborhood in a month for a convention.

On Topic: I pledge $500 to NewEgg and $500 to MD, oh wait, MD accepts BTC? Expect some orders... Smiley

Maybe add Crucial to the list?

I only say this because I was considering buying their solid state cache product (http://www.techspot.com/review/515-crucial-adrenaline-ssd/) since I'm too lazy to clone my drive to a full SSD.

I'm on the fence for getting this but I'd grab it if it was available in bitcoins, so ~$100.

You can also put me down for around another $100 to anyone I can get 2x8GB (DDR3-SDRAM PC3-10700 (667MHz)  -  [DDR3-1333] ) ram sticks from in the near future.

Everything you have asked for is available at www.newegg.com so I put you down for $200 at Newegg.

by god this is the most innovative way to get Bitcoins accepted on a massive scale (but obviously not going to happen over night, i still have realistic expectations of the progress timeline)

When I went to Battle Creek, MI (totally random-looking city -- I'm guessing there are no zoning laws) for a funeral, I stopped by a place called Horrock's. Most amazing place I've ever been. I saw their selection of cheeses and almost cried. They have a live pianist, a large selection of plants, gift shop, pharmacy, ridiculous selection of wines, cheeses, and meats - crackers, spices, flour, bird feed, even batteries -- just about everything.


I'd have no problem at all honoring a $500/year pledge at that place. They have another location in Lansing, MI which my uncle told me is similar in selection and entertainment.

I'll pledge AUD3K to BlueNile in next 12 months and AUD500 to NewEgg (but I might need a middle man since I'm in Australia :-/).

Great idea by the way, encourage large companies through committed purchasing.

I'm actually getting pretty close to launching my newegg.com competitor.
It will be Bitcoin only,  and competitive with newegg on just about everything.
It will have over 500,000 items available with real time inventory checks.

Here is a sneak preview:
