This is a killer deal for retail workers, I got in the first year before they really started checking your info. :o
Intel is worth about 120 billion but Apple is the worst at harming the customer and creating the most deadweight loss, they are at $320 billion.
I don't know forsure what they get it at. My guess, yet I'm using conservative stats based on a Google search, is that Apple has at least a 300% markup on most of their products.
So they are like every other phone manf. because just like apple, Samsung/HTC/LG/etc., they are selling their $200 phones for $600+.
I give it about 5 hours before someone finds a loophole on this deal where everyone will be able to order.
Then this thread will have like 50+ score
Then intel will cancel all those orders
This isn't a new thing for Intel ... So no, there won't be anything of that sort. Only "loophole" is having someone buy it for you or you use someone else's account to buy it (which is what I'm doing).

I've got a friend who works at a Sam's club, every time I ask him to hook me up on this deal (about 4 years now), he says he wants to do it himself... but he never does get it for himself and we both miss out. What a weak friend I guess.
Edit: yes Harvey i'm talking about you, hope you read this thread.
