Default Intel Holiday RE Deal 2012!

The deal goes live 28 Nov, and was finally announced.

Not quite as good (depending on what you were after) as the last deal for a 3930 (for ~$350)

Deal 1: Intel 3770K Box Retail
Member: 105
Rockstar: 95
Legend: 85

Deal 2: Intel 3770 and DZ77GAL-70K mobo
Member: 265
Rockstar: 255
Legend: 245


You can add on the Intel 520 180 gig (or order it by itself) to any of the deals for $145

Shipping is $38, regardless of what combo you get.

Expect to see my 2700k up for sale soon, cheap

Jesus, that's some great pricing. Well you can put me on the list of someone without a contact for this deal but would be very happy to be hooked up :)

I'm in the best position for this, but I have no need for this stuff really. Like if I wanted to, I could get 5+ of these deals, and since I'm near the border, I ship it to the states and pick it up so UPS doesn't **** me over with brokerage fees.

Funny how that works....

If you work at certain retail outlets, or know someone that is. IE Futureshop, BestBuy, Walmart etc. You can submit a paystub and get access to Intel Retail Edge, you have to do a bunch of surveys or something and then you can purchase the items listed above. I believe the more surveys/training stuff you do, the lower the prices are.
