would it be possible for you to upload the PDF version of the email, within the email there should be a link that generally says click on it to open web version, if you can PDF that version and attach

thanks

The chance of MC not honoring the price is high, but I would like to give it a try tonight if you'd be so kind to provide a PDF version of the email blast.

I went to the web version through my email and it looks like they have already corrected the mistake online. It shows a RX 470 now instead of the 1070.

The link and the SKU was always for the Armor 470, it was just the description of the item and the photo was the 1070.

My store indicated that the SKU in the ad matched the 470 that they could provide the 470 for that price, but not the 1070 since it was a different SKU, even though the item defined itself as a 1070.

I actually saw this earlier and was like wtf. I knew I should have clicked on it but kept on trucking to the 1080 FTW2 I wanted.
