Waiting process for a GPU
I have been going to the St Louis Park, MN location for a couple days now and the instructions given do not seem to work as intended. I have been arriving before 7 with maybe 1-2 other people there, scanning the barcode and getting the 'waitlist is currently closed' message every time. Are we expected to refresh the page for up to two hours until it is opened or is it actually not going to be open at all?
If that is the case, there does not seem to be any benefit in getting there early at all as by 7:15 there was about 10 other people there, now all reloading the site frantically on their phones trying to get on the closed waitlist.
These last couple of days there has been a sign that says 'no GPUs today' taped on the pillars outside the store. Is this confirmed before 7am, when people are arriving? I ask because I just leave after a bit assuming (because there is no one to ask) that there is not and will not be any GPUs available that day.
I just want to know what I need to do that will give me an actual chance at getting a GPU for my build.
