I haven't given up but it is discouraging.
If I'm honest with myself I know there's really no way I'll get a 30XX any time soon. I have a FT job, a home and a family so I can only check vendors when time, work and family permit. With the apparent demand for these cards my odds of getting a card aren't 0 but they're not very good.
I'm not going to be able to play the F5 game but I will keep checking as I'm able and who knows maybe I'll get lucky.
