To check the status of your shipment, do the following...

1) Go to https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedext...ry_code=us
2) In the "Enter reference" field, enter your Summer Deal order number and only the number. (If your order number is 123456, enter 123456. Do not enter "Order# 123456")
3) In the "Destination country" field, select your country it's being shipped to.
4) In the "Destination postal code" field, enter the postal code the CPU is being shipped to.
5) Click "Track"

If you receive "This tracking number cannot be found, please check the number or contact the sender", your CPU has not been shipped out yet. Once Intel creates the shipping label, it will actually give you a result with your shipment; and you should be able to get results here quicker than you will receive the shipment notification from Intel.

Enter your order number below in numerical order and the status of your shipment. Hopefully after a while, we can get an idea of where Intel is on shipments.

Alright, from what I understand, this is a program for sales people at a retailer that sells intel products (like Best Buy or Sears). Even if you qualify to be let into the program, you can't get a deal at the entry level and have to work your way up rank by doing training and watching presentations.

Intel Retail Edge is set up by Intel to train retail employees about Intel products so they can be better off informed when trying to sell. In return to doing (very easy) training courses, Intel has their bi-annual deals on CPUs. From experience, it takes about 2-3 hours to do enough courses to get "APPRENTICE" status.

Currently, the i7-5930K is $579.99 on Newegg, or $206.50 (including shipping to US) from the Intel Retail Edge deal, saving $373.49. Personally, spending a couple hours doing simple courses is worth it to me to save $373.49.

Oh no, here we go again. Everyone is about to ask people to buy a CPU from them but everyone eligible will sell them on eBay to maximize their profit. Nobody is going to sell you a i7-5930K for $159 when they can sell it on eBay for $550+.

This summer 2015 sale is identical to the winter 2014 sale.

I got in on the 4790k last time and built a complete computer from the ground up, however, I regretted not going to the newest platform and DDR4 Ram.

I guess this time around I will get the i7-5930K and reuse whatever parts I can from my 4790k build and put the 4790K in an HTPC or something.

Thanks for the heads up!
