The Micro Center in Fairfax, VA (Northern Virginia) location received in their truck, a shipment of ASUS LGA 1155 B3 revision motheboards in this morning, including the following:
ASUS P8P67 Pro-R3 LGA 1155 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P8P67 LE-R3 LGA 1155 P67 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P8H67-M EVO-R3 LGA 1155 H67 mATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P8P67-R3 LGA 1155 P67 Intel ATX Motherboard
ASUS P8P67 Deluxe R3 LGA 1155 P67 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS Sabertooth P67-R3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 ATX Motherboard
I called them this morning (been calling them every Tuesdays and Thursdays to check on inventory) and none of the above have been updated on their website yet. http://www.microcenter
They had 9 of the P8P67 PRO motherboards in stock (I just bought one, so 8 remaining when I left ) and at least 3-4 quantities of the other boards listed above.
If you are in the DC/VA/MD metro area and are looking for an Asus LGA 1155 B3 revision motherboard, hurry! I was able to use the $25 off Intel motherboard coupon (had a manager signed the coupon last week before it expired, to honor the price discount as they were OOS on the motheboards) so I was able to get it for $164.99 (for the P8P67 PRO) + $8.25 tax for a total fo $173.24. The cashier had to call a manager to manually override the price since the coupon had expired.

Thanks op! Went down to the Denver store today, after reserving my P8P67 Pro and i5-2500K online via MC.com (which I'm glad I did because they were sold out by the time I got to the store). At the online pickup counter, I just told the rep that I wanted the combo price from the banner (which was still up btw). He asked me for the price, and I said $349. He said he had to call a supervisor to override the price, but they were so busy a supervisor never came.
He ended up just adjusting the price himself. Yes, a manager never showed up! I also presented the $25 off coupon, which he used as well. Basically, I got the proc and mobo for $315 pre-tax. Final prices for my receipt were $149.99 for the 2500K and $164.99 for the P8P67 Pro.
Thank you for posting, repped!

|Moshe1010||I made my calculations that gas + CA tax = buying from amazon without put any time or effort. (or from TD, it's the same price with the $10 coupon)|

|hotcuervo||man, you got extremely lucky OP, this bundle deal is dead over at the Dallas store.|

Wasn't really planning on upgrading yet, but if I find this, it is just too good to pass up. I am always envious of posts like this where they found some crazy deal. I have the worst luck, so this wouldn't ever happen to me. haha
Now to just find a legitimate reason to go to microcenter that's 2hrs round trip from here... hmm...

Man, just bought the same bundle at Micro Center in Columbus, OH on 3/10... they only had one P8P67 (but multiple LE and Deluxe models)... doubt they'd price match, nor do I want to drive 3 hour round trip to find out. Good deal though!
e: it was the P8P67 (not Pro), and it was $159.99 for board, $179.99 for CPU for a total of $339.98... guess not a huge difference considering gas costs on a 3 hour trip.

yea the added ports are just waste of money (at least for 95% of the buyers).
Well, thanks, I will try this tomorrow. If I won't see the sign, I will tell them that I saw it in their other branch, I'll update
