isn't that an even better deal since MC always has a $5 coupon off orders more than $30 (though some slickdealers said he got it to work on a 29.99 item before so who knows)
And even if you can't it's easy to grab something for $1 or so.

that's only $7-8 after rebate (with tax)

Well this is a first. I just reserved it at my local MC, and got an email saying that that only 1 in stock that I requested is the display model, and that if I want it, it's mine.

Sadly while they give me a discount, there is no box, thus no UPC code, so it ends up being more expensive since I can't use the rebate.

Yeah the stores I checked were either no stock or low stock. Good deal for those who can get one. I've had good luck with the $5 coupon, although I've always spent more than $29.99 - as you say though, easy to pick up something cheap from their "impulse aisle" to hit $30 (CR2032 motherboard battery comes to mind) Smilie

Maybe they'd discount the floor model enough to make it worth your while without the rebate?

there are actually plenty in stock at the next 2 further locations from me,

I find that my store, the one on Long Island NY, just doesn't have the quantities that the one in Queens and Brooklyn have.

But I hate driving to queens or brooklyn. The one closes to me is already a 40 minute drive as it is.

Maybe I can have a friend get it for me. It's a great deal.

I had my sister's bf pick me up a 120gb ssd for $29.99. Reserved a penny item as well from clearance to hit $30, but they could not find it. So I told him to buy some cheap item to get the coupon. He went to buy candy, saw it was priced to high, and then refused to buy it out of spite. Then didn't look at any other sub $5 item (and they have lots by the pick up counter) cause the over priced candy annoyed him.

I was like...what? It didn't matter to me since he owed me $30 bucks and getting me this drive was paying me back since he was headed to my house anyway and lives near the MC. But why waste your own money cause you feel candy is over priced by 50 cents. Haha.

Perfect case for spare parts. Thanks OP. Got so many spare parts that I actually could build a decent gaming thanks Slickdeals.

Spare:
Rm750x
4590k
32gb ddr3
2*gtx 970
Vertex 460gb
Hyper 212
A few noctua fans

Just needed a cheap case

I mean $7 for a decent case after rebate is a Slickdeals. It's not gonna win some case beauty pageant but who cares. It's steel, black and have a good airflow (no pun intended)

I got an email from the first store closet to me on Longs Island NY that the one I reserved is a display unit, thus no box for rebate

And then an email from the 2nd store closest to me in Queens saying that although the website says there are some available, there are no in stock

Finally the third closest store to me in Brooklyn actually got me a reservation...but I'm not driving from Long Island to Brooklyn just to pick up a case. Thankfully I have a friend nearby.

Great budget case. I did a review of it and did a budget build last Spring inside it and am buying another for a build for my mom tomorrow.
