Intel Retail Edge the Summer Deal! i7 3770k as low as $60+ shipping, i7 3930k as low as $155+ shipping
 
Note: If you do not work for the following companies, don't bother reading the thread. You need pay stub/company email/direct deposit to get verified by the program and there's no loopholes around the deal. The closest thing is to ask a friend who works in retail and see if they could get verified and lend you their account. Also, you need to reach Producer level before you could get in on the deal (10000 chips but takes about 30 min to view the video and do the quiz).

How do they define service provider? network operators are service provider, right?
Is there a purchase limit?

I'd be willing to pay someone $100 for their deal for the 3930k. :) That'd be what 280?

f0f 05-07-2013 05:23 PM

Will this work if you work if you work in the corporation of the retail chains listed? I didn't even realize HP had a retail chain, as well as a few others listed.

Emjay 05-07-2013 05:23 PM

This is going to take a ripple effect of all those who buy at this price and then sell for cheap on eBay. However, AMD has always been competitive.

They get them for cheaper. Second degree price discrimination. And if Dell, HP, etc. have commercials that advertise Intel Inside they have additional markdowns.

No way. I can't find it now but I have seen wholesale prices (not for OEMs as big as dell or HP); but they are more than $85 for the i7-3770k. More like two hundred something for a least 1000 count. The effective price of an i7-3770k *might*, barely dip under $200 for a Dell or an HP, but no way it is anywhere close to $85.

Intel's profit margin is about 60%
Amd's is about 39%

a $300 i7 processor costs Intel $120 to make excluding other costs such as sales & administrative, research & development etc.

Sorry, you are completely wrong. These prices are significantly cheaper than what Intel would sell the CPU for to OEM's. This is a special program for retail people, in fact its a better discount than intel employees get on their own CPU.

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.

MetalMayhem 05-07-2013 05:49 PM

What a load of crap!

Don't even have a shot at this.

Discrimination!!!

triclops41 05-07-2013 05:50 PM

the real question is how I find someone who works for one of these companies who also lives in San Diego, and wants to be my friend for a small fee.

MageVortex 05-07-2013 05:52 PM

man.....i'd get an i7 at these prices! i'm sad I can't get in on this deal, but i'm glad I have my job.

No way.
Google search it. It costs between $35-$55.

Where do you get your information from?

Intel is more efficient at producing chips since the P4 and a Cnet article says it costed them $40 back then. More economies of scale/scope now.

geniv 05-07-2013 06:02 PM

it's only 5 score now.

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

threeclaws 05-07-2013 06:02 PM

This is a killer deal for retail workers, I got in the first year before they really started checking your info. :o

So they are like every other phone manf. because just like apple, Samsung/HTC/LG/etc., they are selling their $200 phones for $600+.

That's just Iphones though. Iphones can be sold for much cheaper because intel makes 20% on each App sold. Ipod touches, Ipads are the same because of the 20% intel gets from Apps sold.

Other products have much more than a 300% markup.

This isn't a new thing for Intel :lol: ... 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).

Now Macbook Pros and PowerMacs have much more than a 300% markup.

WTF intel isn't getting a piece of apps.

Apple's computer division has the lowest margins, it's why apple is pushing the iphone/ipad.

SDRockz 05-07-2013 06:14 PM

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.

Bi0hAzArD 05-07-2013 06:16 PM

mankix 05-07-2013 07:16 PM

I'm not doing anything for the summer... maybe I should go apply at Best Buy and see where it gets me... the temptation...

morethanajew 05-07-2013 07:20 PM

Its times like this that I love working for Geek Squad. got the 3770k from the holiday deal, now ill be upgrading to a 3930k (once I find a slick deal on a socket 2011 MoBo). maybe ill have to buy a few using coworkers accounts :p

mankix 05-07-2013 07:24 PM

Quick question... say i had a friend who works at Sams Club. Does intel verify if the person works in a specific department (she works bakery)?

called an income statement

(all numbers in thousands for the latest quarter)
Total Revenue 12,580,000
Cost of Revenue 5,514,000
Gross Profit 7,066,000
therefore gross profit margin = 56%, meaning it costs them 44% of the product cost to make the item, aka Cost of Goods Sold.
Net income 2,045,000
therefore net profit margin = ~16% after subtracting all expenses including taxes, interests, R&D, sales &admin expenses etc.

economies of scale dosen't matter on variable cost.

Ok dude please stop... Obviously you don't know what you are saying. No one except the developers make money on apps plus sponsors for the devs.

dfkjhasdlkjfhloiu 05-07-2013 08:06 PM

OP: please add to the OP some sort of indication that this deal is limited to people who can confirm their position within one of the listed companies. A lot of people here are (like myself) wasting time trying to figure this one out.

mp3monster 05-07-2013 08:16 PM

I'm a little bit confused on how this works. If I work at one of these retailers, I need to click the link and make an account and after they verify my employment then will I be eligible to purchase one of these processors?

Is there some sort of test or training of Intel's products that they want me to take part of before I'm eligible?

If I am a janitor at one of the approved retail stores or is this limited to people who work in the electronics department only, etc.?

TheJagMan 05-07-2013 08:21 PM

I have already picked up these processors in previous Intel Retail Edge deals so I guess I will be passing on the Summer deal for the first time. Maybe they will offer the new processors in the Winter deal. I'll be in on that deal if they do.

You have to complete trainings to get points and also verify your employment.

It's actually 30% that Apple gets from the sale of Apps as seen above.

My friend had a exercise App for the Iphone/Ipod touch in the Itunes store and he explained the basics to me.

therefore net profit margin = ~16% after subtracting all expenses including taxes, interests, R&D, sales &admin expenses etc.

economies of scale dosen't matter on variable cost.

The other guy was probably talking about actual manufacturing costs rather than the true net cost. But I don't know how you can derive their actual profit margin for one particular chip. They probably make a whole lot more on the expensive chips compared to the cheaper ones (% wise). You can't tell me that it costs 6X as much to manufacture an i7-3770K [newegg.com] than it does for a G1610 [newegg.com]. It's impossible for us to say exactly, but my guess is that if it costs them ~$25 to make the G1610 and it's probably like ~$50 to make an i7. It almost always that way no matter what kind of products you're buying; companies always command a whole lot for their "flagship" models and that's where they make most of their profit.

Once you get signed up you will have to verify your employment which will take a few days choosing the fastest option (upload check stub). Then you will have to put up with some training videos and tests to achieve a high enough level to qualify. It's actually worth it though.

they also make even more profitable chips such as ones for enterprise solution and servers, xeon and i7 extremes.
i5,i7 chips also far outsolds cheaper chips such as i3 and pentium, I'd say gross profit is around 60%-65% +/- few percent, but the cost is certainly not 1/6th of revenue

Well put + good point; it's just a die. They use one machine programed to stamp out a die for an desktop based Intel Pentium, another for an i5, and another for a i7, etc.
They use relatively the same amount of silicon.
If they used the same machine to stamp out all i7s and just gave people i7s then it costs less for Intel in R&D for the i5, i3 machines to be made or programed.
My point is it would be cheaper for intel to just make i7s to all than have so many other machines (with different parts) to make so many other processors.
But they have to do that in order to keep market share and hitting the demand curve of what people can afford.

sanderb134 05-07-2013 10:57 PM

I don't need one but how much could the cheapest build come out to if I went with the i7 3770k?

Yeah, we already know that AMD does that exact thing (make just a few chips, and disable cores as needed). Yet, they'll charge double the price for exactly the same chip.

Not in my experience. They're essentially looking for the company name on the paystub. I believe they'll do further verification that the person listed on the paystub actually works there, but they don't check for departments.

painkillah 05-08-2013 12:07 AM

Aww man I forgot chips expire! Been a while since I logged in and did anything. Oh well at least I only need 1000 chips to regain my status but I lost all my chips :( Thanks for the heads up I really don't feel like buying a new MB and upgrading my system right now but at these prices cant pass on the CPU.

My inlaw works in sporting goods but I use their info to participate in this program. Don't know if this is appropriate but anyone looking for one of these CPUs PM me with an offer. Keep in mind shipping can take 4to6 weeks from Intel. Not just giving it away either.

Would working in a small computer store qualify under the "Eligible postions" Section? Here is the business website so you guys can see it's an actual company with an actual brick & mortar store. http://www.amprodata.com I would think this would qualify, yes?

"For eligibility Members must be employed in either: (1) one of the following positions listed below or (2) a retailer-specific title included in the profile section of the Program registration page (both may be referred to herein as an “Eligible Positions”):

-- In-store business sales
-- PC sales
-- Software sales
-- Computer peripherals sales
-- Computer service
-- PC training
-- PC department management
-- Online Sales/Call Center
-- Store management
-- PC Buyer
-- Service Provider Sales and Support"

Nice, but I'm not sure if any of us work in retail here. Alot of fun trying to get your buddy to sit down with you and help ya out hah...

Maybe just pull someone off to the side? Good way to pick up a girl :)

What a horrible blanket statement. As if all SD'ers are the same, and it would be too good for you?

So, girls also only work in retail too!?!


been up since 3am. bring it.

richbutler1 05-08-2013 09:24 AM

I'd help out an employee if they could get an i7-3970K, PM me if anyone is interested. I try to help friends and family with their builds, not looking to throw this on ebay for profit, so you'd be helping me/someone versus a profit motive. I'm helping my friend's son with a build for his birthday and can use this to backfill my CPU I will be using for that. Of course, words are cheap, it's up to you if this matters.

Yes, Thats true. Sorry... As far as a retail setting mentioned though, you will most likely not have a corporate address and uploading a check stub would be faster than the other options.

jd12586 05-08-2013 11:13 AM

I work for Kmart and I just go verify.

Indio22 05-08-2013 11:19 AM

Didn't think anyone would beat Microcenter prices, but it is Intel beating them after all, lol. With two Microcenters and a Frys nearby, I always get great deals on PC parts. Not to mention, working retail is no picnic, so I can't really complain these workers will at least get a CPU deal out of it. Still, wouldn't mind having that i7-3930 6-core for my video editing rig - nice price!

intuition90 05-08-2013 01:20 PM

Thought I would shed some light on this subject since not a lot of people have information about this since I've been a member for 5+ years.

First and foremost, good luck trying to find a loophole for non-verified people to get in on this deal. Intel has had these deals twice a year for quite a while. Not only does their verification either require pay-stub verification or through corporate email, they WILL call your "store location" and verify that you do indeed work there if they find anything aloof (they did this to my store once or twice).

Second, people seem to think Intel does this because the new Haswell processors are around the corner. Although that could be the reason, that is mostly incorrect. These exact processors were on the previous Winter and Summer deal, respectively, for about the same price give or take $10. My guess is that they just have a TON of processors (ever see CPUs go out of stock outside B&M stores?).

As far as the program goes, its basically just a knowledge bank for Intel stuff. Do some quizzes which are fairly easy and they reward you with chips that you can use in their "gift store" which contains stuff like swag, processors, keyboards, RAM, TVs (rarely), etc. The amount of chips you earn place you into different tiers which allows you to purchase the items on the Summer/Winter deal at different prices.

That's pretty much it.

wrathre 05-08-2013 02:56 PM

Any word on if there's going to be a 3rd deal? I know in the past the first two deals are usually:
Deal 1: CPU
Deal 2: CPU/Mobo or different CPU all together
Only allowing you to order deal 1 or 2.
Then a 3rd deal that you can order as well independent (an SSD last go around if I recall).

They usually limit you to one deal.

bjbearinstein 05-08-2013 04:15 PM

if anyone could help me out with verifying an account I'd be willing to give you part of the money I'd sell one of the cpu's for. I'm building a new computer soon and was going to wait for haswell but his seems to be much better bang for buck.

doggiepoo12 05-09-2013 07:12 AM

So if anyone wants to buy one and would like to help out a brother who isn't their brother...i would be very grateful to someone, and would make it worth a while of someone who would do so. I want a 3770, as thats the last upgrade my computer needs to finally be done being upgraded. I even have a custom cooler for it already :D

TL:DR - I really want a 3770 if someone that gets one doesn't actually want to keep it.. I can offer trades or some such. PM me?

Rutgerskid 05-11-2013 02:22 PM

for normal use, no... and, to me anyway, the lga2011 socket is going to be more limiting when it comes to motherboards than it's worth anyway. just stick with the 3770k, it'll be more than enough for a long time to come.

The problem will be finding a decent X79 motherboard at a good price. I went with the 3930K the last time they had the deal. X79 motherboard prices may have gone down. Go for it!

Good point on the motherboard. I see a few used ones on Amazon for under $200, but new they're all $200+. I think I'll stick with an LGA1155 chip and board. Thanks!

They do not list any details besides "afternoon" Its to prevent the site from getting crushed if they listed a time. Then they wont have to deal with people being pissed off because the site wouldn't load at the specific time they listed. My advice is to just keep checking all day .. If you aren't able to do that .. then thats life.

Ugh! When does this start!

send2dodo 05-15-2013 11:51 AM

Anyone knows or remembers at around what time this started last year? Since Intel is primarily west coast based, I am thinking maybe 12 noon PST???

Thanks and repped for exact timings. So I will get my coffee and be back by 2.45 cst just to be on the safe side.

I am looking at the 3930 for a friend. Heck I don't work retail but I work with one of these companies and could verify via email.:bounce:

raviadso1 05-15-2013 12:11 PM

$330 processor for $60? I need to find a buddy that works at one of those places. It's almost worth going to Staples and making a friend.

apumista 05-15-2013 12:12 PM

Are you guys going with the 3930 or the 3770 and for what reasons/use?

raviadso1 05-15-2013 12:16 PM

These are the best processors for gaming and 90-95% of your processing needs. The only reason to go AMD right now is price of if you have software like video editing that can use the additional cores, but at this price, there is no reason to go with AMD unless you use one of those very specific programs. The i7s will power through any program with brute force and come out the winner.

I just need to find someone to help me get in on this.

payment
 
Anyone with past experience know if you can pay with a credit card of a different name and ship to an address other than the one tied to the account.

Yes. I've done it several times.

cougnole 05-15-2013 12:53 PM

any idea what the "•One deal per person, please!" means? Is this refering to the free keyboard? multiple orders? multiple cpus on the same order? ideas?

OneSlickDeal 05-15-2013 01:01 PM

Think I gotta go with the 3770k

Once you buy one you can't buy another period.

WhatsYoFlava 05-15-2013 02:45 PM

From what I've heard... once the deal is almost over (maybe the last several days of the deal?) you will have the option to purchase the other deal that you passed up.

Not sure if true but I'll be checking the summer deal page during the last week or so just to see

Rutgerskid 05-15-2013 02:45 PM

It says "Please allow up to 6 weeks for your order to ship. " Really?!

Yea. They are getting tons of orders I'm sure.

iworkATstaples 05-15-2013 02:47 PM

Keyboards are still available, just ordered 3 3930s. Was tax consistent for everyone? It was like 11% for me

I've typically received my stuff within about 10 days

doug2060 05-15-2013 02:48 PM

It always says 6 weeks. From past experience they ship fairly quickly. I got the 3770k and keyboard set.

I'll have to keep an eye out for that also.

liemydude 05-15-2013 03:01 PM

was in the process of checking out and got the message "ordering is temp disabled" uh ohhh
I had the 3770k and keyboard in cart too :(

WhatsYoFlava 05-15-2013 03:05 PM

There appears to be a problem ordering for Canadians so Intel disabled ordering for now.

Deals4Lyfe 05-15-2013 03:08 PM

I'm so sad, why isn't Amazon on this list, Newegg is...

methaitoo 05-15-2013 03:11 PM

Rutgerskid 05-15-2013 03:12 PM

Yes, I got one almost instantaneously after my order went through.

wow, that's great, so why don't you give me your obsolete hardware if it is indeed obsolete. I'll take it off your hands. Especially since i'm on a S939 -if ivy and sandy are obsolete, i'm running on a dinosaur.

Some of the "stores" on that list pay $20-$40 an hour, don't require college, and lead to management or training positions with the big corporations..

also, there are direct dealers on that list that easily make 60-90k a year..once again..doesn't even require colege just talent and intelligence.

not everyone in technology and/or retail is ignorant and working for minimum wage..someone working on a third party vendor contract or working as a market lead or manager can easily make 50-75k a year without a year of school

you just have to be damn smart

You dont NEED to be smart. At all, actually. I know plenty of people that are complete idiots who have gotten promotions to supervisor and manager positions within the store.

Lucky for me, I do in-home services so I don't have to deal with them. Still get to use great deals like this though! (and about the pay, you are a little light. Starting pay for a GM at BB is ~100k)

Also; In for a 3930k on my account...still thinking about getting a 3770k on my girlfriends account for building my portable sound system in my car ;)

Jetlitheone 05-15-2013 08:18 PM

Just did this in 2 hours. Ordered a 3770k just upgraded from my i5 3470 so excited. Love working for HP lol

Panduhsaur 05-15-2013 09:20 PM

Is there another thread to list that you're selling?

SKORPI0 05-15-2013 09:28 PM

Best price I could get for the 3930K is $185 and 3770k is $85.

kmlm13 05-15-2013 09:46 PM

How do you order more than one item? I'd like one of each.

vdChild 05-15-2013 09:49 PM

woot, got a 3770k from a friend for ~105 after tax and shipping (to him and then to me) score! (goodbye 2500k helloooooo 3770k!)

You can't unless you have multiple accounts

coyo5050 05-16-2013 10:13 AM

For those of you who got the free keyboard/mouse did you just add the 3770k/3930k to your cart and it just showed up in your order or did you have to add the keyboard to your cart? No keyboard for me so maybe I was just too late last night.

I snagged this but the mobos are so expensive. Thanks op for the great list of how to get points quickly!

DTN107 05-17-2013 05:54 AM

Anyone else not getting the 2000 points for the mobile app?

boogey 05-17-2013 12:20 PM

Still thinking if I should pass on this? I already have an i7 3770k. Mobos are pricey for the i7 3930k tho. Any recommendations for 3930k mobo?

I currently use MPower Z77 for 3770k.
