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.

just go to fry's and ask for price match with MC. that's just simple and easy. why do you have to risk?

I did price match with fry's and bring home the chip for $250 after tax. I'm happy now.
There are some states that don't have a Microcenter nor a Fry's (my state of NC included...).

Anyway, I already have a 3770k from back in July. Paid like $340 for it. Wish I could have gotten this price.. o.o

I recall, years ago, American Express offered a price protection program. If you purchased an item with your AMEX and found it cheaper elsewhere, from a legitimate reseller, they would refund you the difference.

I actually used it fro an item I bought, and later found it about $200 cheaper elsewhere. I contacted AMEX, and they discussed it with me, and refunded me the difference.

SHOULD THIS DEAL BE MARKED AS DEAD?


I read this promotion was good only until 12/31/12.

If so, mark this as dead, and move to the Deal Talk forum, before others buy an item thinking they're eligible for a price match.

Tried it on 3570K and was denied outright. Good luck.
For what it is worth, PP approved it when I submitted the request again after I was denied the first time. I got $50 back in my account yesterday for a 3570k which i got from the egg store for $220.
