I am starting to get excited. Like I am really going to get this thing.
I called the RBC yesterday just to make damn sure there was no loophole they were going to spring on me at the last minute.
Wouldn't you know, I got a newbie, Dave, who looked at my account and said, "Wait a minute. You already had payroll deposit? I think you need to apply for a credit card then to qualify."
WTF? "Really? Because the last person I talked to didn't mention that. And I don't want a credit card."
"Well you don't have to keep it."
"Ok, do I have to apply for a credit card or do I actually have to qualify? Cuz I can tell you, it ain't happening."
"I can transfer you to the credit department..."
"You know what? Don't. I can't imagine why the last person would tell me I qualified, she was looking at the same account that you are. Why don't you go find out for sure. I will just let you know, that after all this, if I don't get one of these free pc's I will be switching banks."
So, off he goes to talk to a supervisor or whatever he has to do. And I was not kidding, I will switch banks if they put me through all this shit, only to deny me the toy on a technicality. You don't get my hopes up without some serious ramifications. [insert Cartman voice ]
He comes back in about 5 minutes, "Evel? You are in like Flynn!" He is more excited than I am. "My mistake, I am so sorry."
"No worries, Dave, as long as I get my toy."
"Don't you worry, you are getting the toy!"
After that, I spent a few hours transferring money into my paypal account and surfing eBay for 'accessories' for my toy.
Which will all probably arrive before it does. SIGH!
