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.

OP even admits its abuse of the system. Seriously, whoever would risk their Paypal account for this is a moron.

hmm, i'd like people predict how much the chip will go for once HASWELL comes out. It's very upsetting that there aren't any MicroCenters around to offer me the 229 deal

This is not abuse. I purchased item from newegg and price matched with power seller on ebay and i was credited the difference before and that was before BF.

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.

Not everybody has a MC or Fry's around. This sounds like a good deal, but there are a few questions with this though. The Paypal promo states
Quote :
The Price Match benefit does not apply to advertisements for close-out sales, flea markets, fire sales,
cash-only sales, limited quantity promotions, liquidation sales, going-out-of-business sales, seasonal
sales, door busters, Auctions, and sales valid for less than one day.
And the MC ad, while good, saying that
Quote :
Prices good 11/12 - 12/2/2012
It also says on the ad page
Quote :
LIMITED AVAILABILITY.
LIMIT 1 PER HOUSEHOLD AT THIS
PRICE | IN-STORE ONLY.
So ... my questions are, limited availability should disqualify the 3rd gen Intel Core line from the promotion, or no?
Second, In Store only, I don't really think it matters, since they match any price, in store / online. But still ... Thoughts?

I just applied. I got the 3770K for 250$ @ tigerdirect which was a killer deal anyway. Wish me luck! Big Grin

Will Frys price match if there is no Microcenter within 100+ miles?
