Below is the response I got from M&F. A little testy but at lease I got conformation that I will get my certificate.
"Thank you for your recent inquiry. That E-Certificate for the difference price is still going to be sent but let me reaffirm that it may take anywhere from 10-14 business days from the ship date before you'll receive the email. Sorry for any inconveniences this might cause, but hopefully you can maintain a bit of patience while we get that processed and set up for you.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions or concerns, or if you are not completely satisfied with the service you have received from us today. We appreciate your feedback."

I e-mailed about the gift certificate expiration date and they told me it would expire dec 31. 2012.

According to the Musician'sFriend faq "Gift certificates are valid through 1/31/2013."

|mobislink||Did anybody get their price match gift card or any indication that it will be sent out from M & F?|

|uhsarp||I thought I got it for $178 but I did better. Got it for $208 and a $100 WWBW gift card. Bought it for $449 and did a 150% PM guarantee (thought it was 110% but the rep voluntarily mentioned 150%). And not a clue about the $208 figure as well but checked my CC statement and it reflects the same. The GC is expected to be shipped out next week. Effectively I got this beauty for $108!|

|bbdt||Mine just got here today from Musicians Friend. Even though I wasn't able to pull off some of those super slick deals that some people got, I am very satisfied with this purchase at $249. You would not think this is a Casio if the name wasn't on it. The keys feel very realistic. I dont think the sound is quite as good as Yamaha but it isnt too far off and the price savings for the minor difference really sounds like music to my ears.|

FWIW, here's the stand I'm thinking of getting. I want something folding / stow-able rather than the perma-stand. Most of the X-style stands don't go low enough (24.9") for this piano. This Z-stand does, though. And Z stands are supposed to be a lot more stable than the X-stands.
Profile KDS 450MA - $49, read the reviews
Manufacturer web site
Looks like it has lots more adjustment height settings than other Z stands, and there's more legroom - though it's not foldable, and it's 20" deep (vs about 11.5" for the keyboard).
The Profile Z stand is $50 at Guitar Center, free shipping, and the 15% off coupon SAVBIG15 currently applies. After Discover Cash Back etc, even cheaper. Add sales tax, though. Not currently in stock, but that might be the best bet for an inexpensive yet sturdy stand. Under $40 with Discover CB and sales tax, for me.
Guitar Center - Profile KDS450MA
Other Z stand options:
On Stage KS-7350 - $99
Adjustments are only every 2.75", try drilling a hole that works for the exact 24.9" height if the 24" setting doesn't work.
$99, but after store credits, Discover cash back, coupons etc. you might be able to get the price down at your favorite store, they sell this everywhere.
Also, looks like it's been cheaper in the past, may be worth waiting. (Links to Camel Camel Camel seem to be blocked.)
Roland KS-18Z , $64 at B&H , if you want something that folds

The Casio web page for the stand says it's: W 1304.4 x D 373.2 x H 631.6 mm *Excluding projections
aka 51.3 in W x 14.7" D x 24.9" H
The thing that really matters is the height of the stand - you want the height to the top of the keys to exactly match a piano. Presumably the height of this is set so that when you add the height of the keyboard, it's the right height. (About 28-1/8 in)
The CDP-120 is: 1,322 x 286 x 129 mm
aka 52.0" W x 11.3" D x 5.1" H - so that gives the width and depth it needs to work with.
The manual for the stand may give some ideas on construction details.

It looks so simple for a DIY project. Just goto the local store and measure the real thing.

Mine came yesterday too and I couldn't agree more! I wasn't able to get anyone to give me 15% off but even at $249 I feel I got a great deal for the quality of this instrument!
Has anyone had any luck locating a good deal on the stand that goes with this?
