Update 2: You should be able to order through the Amazon marketplace and still qualify for the Price Protection!
Update: PC Connection has TouchPads at full price:
You can use screenshots from Office Depot to use for price protection.
Any other stores have them in stock or have good screenshots to use for matching?

If after you buy an item you find a lower price within 90 days you call 800-419-8027 and let the claims administrator know about it. You should call to file the claim within 10 days of finding the lower price. Then just fax or send in your receipt and a printout of a lower price.

Post a comment if you can find a Google Cached page of the 16GB TouchPad for $99.99 and I’ll update this post.
