Thread Details

This is how to get the Intel Core i7 3770K 3.5GHz LGA 1155 Processor for 230.00 and even get it shipped to your house. How we accomplish this is by abusing Paypals Price Match [paypal-promo.com]. We know Microcenter has the i7 3770k on sale for 230.00 [microcenter.com]. This is the price we want.

We also know that Paypals Price Match will price match up to 250 per purchase and 1000 total during this promotion if we use Paypal to pay for the purchase. Tiger Direct offers the i7 3770k [tigerdirect.com] and is one of Paypals shopping Partners.

So we essentially are getting the Pricematch from Paypal to get to Micro Centers Price on a Tiger Direct Purchase.

Steps Involved:
1) Order from Tiger Direct [tigerdirect.com]

2) Grab Pictures of your Purhcase from Tiger Direct and from MicroCenter i7 Deal [microcenter.com]

3) Fill Out Paypal Price Match Form [paypal-pricematch.com] once the transaction has settled and you have the receipt plus transaction ID.

fau13, it's not a PayPal company? The site is branded by PayPal and appears to belong to PayPal Inc. Are they doing pricematching through a third party?

Anyone else care to report on if this is legit?

UPDATE: I don't see anything on the form that would compromise the security of a PayPal account. You provide the PayPal transaction ID along with your name, phone number, and PayPal email address. Unless I'm missing something, this appears about as safe as safe can get.

Yes - when I look the paypal brand.. I think it was a paypal company but it is not pay pal company and they are saying third party processing company.. I called two reps and one of them told me the info, now I am thinking .. is it safer to give the all information to them.. I may need to call Paypal for confirmation.

I price matched Best buy; used the 3x rewards points for a $15 on gift cards, and paid with American express to get $20 back for made a purchase on BB over $200.
So. 243 - 20 - 15= 208...no bad

You can get to that price matching page by clicking a couple of links from the main paypal.com

fau13, as long as you don't give them your account password, they can't make a transaction without your consent. All they can do is credit you the difference on your price match.

This is legit.

Did you price match online or in-store? I just called and they said they do not PM MicroCenter.

In store... Just print the price from Microcenter. They order mine to shipping to store. Just be sure the blue shirt monkey place the order correctly and that you receive an email confirmation. If you don't receive the email, go back to store. And ask why. This happened to me and the order was never processed the first time, they fixed and I picked it up yesterday.

How long did it take for you to hear back?
They did NOT give any reason. Submitted a second time and again nothing. Call them but got hung up. Emailed them but No reply.

I had low hopes of seeing the price match credit to begin with since this offer is from Paypal.

Great news! Some more details would be appreciated though.
Like where did you buy, and with what did you match (MC I assume?)
Thanks.

Fry's Price Matches any online competitor , no 100 mile garbage there...
and this is exactly what the Paypal Price Match function was made for as I received an email this last week advertising
this same scenario from either Paypal or TigerDirect promoting it.
Negative.

Fry's has a list of online competitors it might pricematch to. And even then it is random it seems, thus I use the word "might". I think amazon, newegg and overstock.com are all on that list but I haven't attempted to PM anything in a year.

Also, fry's will not pricematch with the tax or if item requires any coupon code to get the deal.
