How can I get on any kind of GPU waiting list?
Without a car.
I'm 20 minutes away from the store, I don't currently own a car, and I work during normal business hours during the week.
The only feasible way I imagine myself ever getting a card is if I sign up for a waiting list that reserves the card in my name, and then I go pick it up when it's ready. Sounds extremely simple, straight forward, and fair. Employees at Micro Center could simply take the cards, slap a note on it for whom its reserved, and then notify them that it's ready with a 30-minute window to get it. If they cannot arrive in that 30 minute window, they are reset to the back of the list. This is just how I imagine a waiting list to work.
But at the store the other day I was told there's a link to follow that puts you on a list, but that there's no way to reserve your place on the list. Which effectively makes the list... pointless.
Is there a not pointless waiting list?
Is there any way for me to get a card?
