So....I can walk into a Tiger Direct store or buy online at Tiger Direct, and everything will be 50% when I pay for it/ click check out?

Also, isn't this the same day as Black Friday?

I HIGHLY doubt they can sell all their inventory at 50% off even just for one day. They'd loose massive amounts of money, especially if it's all being donated too.

I think the OP is trying to say that 50% of the price will go towards breast cancer research but you'll still be paying full price for everything.

honestly, they'd be lucky to sell $250K on one day. And becuase it's being "donated" for a charity, they can sell for 50%, and write off 100%, also lowering taxes the corporation would have to pay.

I wouldn't be surprised if they sneakly raise the prices a lot then show a 50% off price to attract people (like Q6600 bumped to 349$ then sell at 174.99$, which look like 50% when it's more like just 20-30$ rebate).

You hit the nail right on the head there man.

No doubt they will not sell more than $250K worth of stuff and probably even less than 1/2 that.

Ok, am I reading this right? 50% off of all the items that TD sells, or 50% of the regular price is donated?

Hard drive is dieing, need to pick up a new one. If it's the first one, I think I'll have to order from them for the first time.

Here's the deal:

On November 28th, ComputerTV will host a live webcast which will be broadcast on TigerDirect.com, CompUSA.com, and Com.puter.TV. During that broadcast limited quantities of various items will be presented for 1/2 off their regular price with the full amount paid going to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The Pink Friday promotion is not being run on TigerDirect.ca.
