Deal is live!

To quote Shizdizzle from last years deal:

Quote from shizdizzle View Post :
So, we go through this every year, let me explain how this works before this thread gets out of control.

The only way to get in on this deal is if you work for one of the companies above(edit:below), or if you commit fraud and falsify documents saying you work at one of those places.

Also, if you work in corporate or have a non-retail position at one of the companies listed, while you are not supposed to, you can get an account, get verified, and get in on the deal.

OP, you might want to include something in your original post indicating this so the thread doesn't turn into every other post asking how you can get in on this.

If you're new to the program, but know your computer/intel stuff, quickest way to obtain chips is to do the ENTIRE Certification Program. Followed by checking for Learning Activities that reward higher than 100 Chips.
By doing the ENTIRE Certification program you also receive some codes for PC GAMES

Easiest 2000 chips ever is:
Download and log on via the Intel Retail Edge Mobile App (limit one time): 2,000 chips

Everyone starts as a Level 1 "Roadie" , as a Roadie, you get nothing.

The next levels, in order, are:

To qualify for Producer Status:
Complete at least one of these tasks to qualify for the next Status level:
-Complete 50 Learning activities (does not include Certification Learning activities) in the last six months. [EASY]
-Be active on the Program Website for the last three consecutive months by completing at least three Learning activities each month (does not include Certification Learning activities).
-Earn 25,000 Chips in the last six months. [opinion:EASIEST WAY]


To qualify for Rockstar Status:
Complete at least one of these tasks to qualify for the next Status level:
-Complete 100 Learning activities (does not include Certification Learning activities) in the last 12 months. [EASY]
-Be active on the Program Website for the last six consecutive months by completing at least three Learning activities each month (does not include Certification Learning activities).
-Earn 50,000 Chips in the last 12 months. [opinion:EASIEST WAY]

To qualify for ROCK LEGEND Status:
Complete ALL of these tasks to qualify for the next Status level**:
-Complete 150 Learning activities (does not include Certification Learning activities) in the last 12 months.
-Be active on the Program Website for the last 12 consecutive months by completing at least three Learning activities each month (does not include Certification Learning activities).
-Earn 100,000 Chips in the last 12 months.
-Have current employment verification at time of upgrade.
-Achieve Level 3 Certification (Certification Learning activities do not count toward total Learning Activities needed to reach and maintain Rock Legend Status level).
-Answer 12 Quick Poll questions in the last 12 months.
-Participate on the Message Boards at least once every calendar month.

From what i remember processors are shipped via Fedex and can be tracked by their reference number or destination zip code and ship date. (This is before you even get the tracking number yourself)

Yeah i'm going to get the 5930K, probably an ASRock board (they're the cheapest and I like them), and either 1x8GB or 2x4GB of DDR4 . I will get more DDR4 when the prices drop. I have 16GB DDR3 in my current system and it's overkill for my needs so 8GB will suffice. I will survive until a real slick deal comes around for memory.

Sadly, no.

Every sale people refuse to read the MASSIVE amount of info the OP gives and ask for more.

Followed by the people asking how to cheat the system and get in on the sale even though they don't work for one of the many companies that do.

(Hint for you people) You don't have to work on the retail side, your company just has to have a retail footprint that sales Intel merchandise. For example, if you work in account managment for Staples, you might still qualify because Staples has a retail division that sells Intel.

The tired wave of people will be asking if anyone who qualifies will sell a chip to them at a lower price.

Being you can only buy 1 chip a sale, most keep it. Plus, if caught selling, that person runs the risk of being thrown out of the program.

An hour if you know everything about Intel's products. Just go through the 3 Certification Levels skip the videos and learning and go straight to the quizzes. You should have the 25,000 points needed to qualify for producer. If you don't then add some learnings that give 250-500 chips per success.

It's important to note that if you pass a Current Learning Activity quiz with 100% on your first try you get a large bonus amount of chips.

Chips for current Learning activities are awarded one time, based on the score of your first attempt.
Interactive Learnings
100% on first try: 1,000
80% or higher:500

Articles
100% on first try: 500
80% or higher:250

Video with five-question quiz
100% on first try: 1,000
80% or higher: 500

Video with three-question quiz
100% on first try: 500
80% or higher: 250

Online reviews:500


Also, easiest 2000 chips ever is:
Download and log on via the Intel Retail Edge Mobile App (limit one time): 2,000
