At least this time it will be a month before the next fan rebate for this item.

Well, I think I will get in on these anyway. The black ones are much stronger than the clear ones. Also I have IC so these are FAR for me.

AND THEN THAT'S IT.

bb182 02-28-2013 07:34 PM

Already? This isn't supposed to be FAR until next month and it's only the 28th... :)

What are the chances of a free Inner Circle membership popping up anytime soon? I can't pay tax AND shipping. Newegg has neither for me!

Just about zero. They do have it on sale occasionally for $30 per year.

bb182 02-28-2013 09:16 PM

Their clock is still 2.5 minutes slow. We may want to mention this on future TD posts.

Really? Are you sure it's not your clock? Do you set your time over the network?

My clock is regularly synced with us.pool.ntp.org. The difference also appears to be constant since that day I ordered at 11:59:57.

Ok, thanks for the tip. Some deals have to be ordered quickly, so it's worth knowing.

ohiwastedmylif 02-28-2013 10:01 PM

I believe this means that the blue or yellow ones will go on sale FAR in the next day or two. Based upon how it has been happening previously.

I so badly want some red ones to go on sale or be FAR. I have a full red led case setup but the red one are NEVER on sale or FAR.

Thanks OP. I couldn't get econo shipping because TD put x's in address line 2 by default. I had to erase it and then econo shipping was available

I really want some green LED fans to go on sale.
At this point I think I'm just going to take a couple of the yellow fans and solder in some green LEDs (I've got a friend who will give me the LEDs free:cool:)

I don't think Kingwin makes a Green LED case fan.

The Cooler Master Green LED SickleFlow Fans [newegg.com] go on rebate every few months.

Usually you can score 1 for $2 to $4, depending on if there are any 20% off promo codes available to stack at the time.

Cheapest I've seen them in the last 6 months was $1.39 each.

Of course, I have 6 in my reserve storage back from this Money Maker Deal.

Kingwin Fans tend to be FAR more than any other brand (at both Newegg and TigerDirect) over the last couple of months. I've purchased FAR Kingwin Fans ranging in size from 80mm to 200mm.

Occasionally, you'll see a deal on a Cooler Master or Zalman for super cheap... but those are a lot harder to come by lately.

Oh, there was also a Masscool one a while back too.

All of these rebates are from reliable companies, so you might as well stock up. :)

Does one need more than 16 fans :rolleyes:? These fans are junk from what I have seen. The soldering is about as reliable as a coin toss and the leds don't work on all the fans. Also I have 1 that came with zero screws in the packaging!

You've answered your own question: if they're unreliable you might need several replacements.

Also, why do people whine about free stuff so much?

" I am assuming this is a way to inject short-term funds rapidly into a company to solve some immediate issue."

That's what I was thinking as well. Either that or it's a way to get short term quick sales/clear out old inventory and hopefully a 3% of the people who purchase the product forget to send in the rebate. Their overhead is obviously the rebate processing company and the retailer which probably marks up the product 35% as is the usual. I still think it costs the company less than 20 cents to manufacture the actual fan, so there are still profits to be made.

LOL, if you think they worth $10, then I have a bridge to sell you. This has nothing to do with "short term funds", they count on about 40% of people not bothering or forgetting to do the rebate.

I read and comprehend fine, don't blame me for your inability to think though.

A price that you do not pay, such as price before rebate or "list price" or anything else is meaningless. They can make it whatever they want since buyers won't be paying it and market discipline is not applied to it. The only thing is that you might consider is that the pre-rebate price is the "penalty" if you don't submit the rebate correctly. In that sense it might matter.

Also the value or "worth" of a good is not based on its price. It's not based on MSRP. It's based solely on the good itself. The fact that you don't understand this most basic concept explains my original shorthand reply which assumed you were reasonably intelligent. I'm sorry for that assumption.

They aren't worth $8.99. The MSRP is actually $6.99, which is what the typical "sale" price at TigerDirect when they aren't on rebate.

Amazon and Newegg sell the exact same fan for $7. Fry's and MicroCenter sell the same fan for $3.99.

NOTE: I am talking about the non-LED version (CF-012LB) which is what this deal is for.

As for them wanting a short-term cash infusion... I think you're reading too much into it. Most TigerDirect (TD-XXXX) rebates are merely cash changing hands from one Systemax company (TigerDirect) to the other (4MyRebate). I doubt they are even manufacturer-funded most of the time.

Yeah, I mean, it's not just TigerDirect doing it. Newegg does it all the time too... as we experienced with their MX-4 midnight price-jack.

$9.99 Before Rebate Period ----> $16.99 During Rebate Period ----> $9.99 After Rebate Period

By the way, I caught Newegg withholding stock again on two FAR items.

That Emerson Alarm Clock Radio & Emerson Portable Weather Clock Radio that made it to the front-page.

Yeah... both rebate offers were valid thru 02/28/13.

Miraculously, at 12:30 AM PST on 03/01/13. they both appeared back in stock.
LINK #1 [newegg.com]
LINK #2 [newegg.com]

I think that's totally bizarre because some people receiving DOA units and instead of replacing them, Newegg just credited their account and told them tough luck. Then, it turns out they actually had some anyways.

It sounds like someone was not paying attention in school. There are numerous iterations of the terms which require a more specific situation to be realized. MSRP is meaningless if they are utilizing a different marketing strategy, such as penetration pricing. However if it is someone like a motor vehicle MFG the MSRP is the only available price for new items, based upon their locked pricing strategy. In that situation the MSRP does matter. The price is locked in via contract and anyone abusing the price, lowering it, will have their supply contract terminated. Market value does not reign supreme in all cases, because that is situational itself. Also the worth or value I was referring to is actually the IMPLIED WORTH/VALUE which is what a reasonably educated person would understand when I personally am comparing the value of the fan to its weight in plastic. There are also multiple iterations of worth/value as well, these are also situational and need context.

It sounds like he went to the school of Marx and skipped the updated Porter & modern pricing strategies. Yes I went to business school as well.

Why are we talking about penetration pricing and other nonsense when I've said from the beginning they priced the fan over MSRP during the rebate period?

If you follow TigerDirect deals... you know they will offer a mail-in rebate on just about anything. A rebate is one of their favorite tools used to give a temporary discount on an item. They use them because they stand to benefit in at least 3 ways:
1) Positive customer reaction for TigerDirect brand --> May increase sales on other products down the line.
2) Rebate breakage --> Customers who simply fail to submit the rebate or miss the postmark date.
3) "Rapid Rebate Processing" --> TigerDirect's parent company, Systemax, also owns 4MyRebate. When people choose rapid processing, they are essentially giving back 10% of their rebate value back to TigerDirect, in a round about ways.

MSRP isn't a very important figure except to select products, such as: automobiles, fashion, televisions (i.e. Samsung/Sony unilateral pricing), and high-end radar detectors (i.e. Escort).

I thought satanslover summed it up pretty nicely:
"They can make [the price] whatever they want since buyers won't be paying it and market discipline is not applied to it. The only thing that you might consider is that the pre-rebate price is the "penalty" if you don't submit the rebate correctly. In that sense it might matter."
