I'd be careful with that. People buying codes then later claiming it was an unauthorized purchase then ebay siding with the buyer.

Horrible deal for such an old gpu. You could buy gtx 1660 for $203 at frys a couple days ago or rx 580 for much less

more misinformation, the GTX 1060 doesn't generate much heat to begin with ~120W

I have sold a couple of codes on eBay. This did happen to me once and I end up paying bank charge back fee. Any other legit place to sell codes?

r/SteamGameSwap but always keep an eye on the official list and check user flair.
PP F&F as payment and you'll be alright.

I agree, it is manufacturer rebate. But there is no difference for customer. Need to pay attention to rebate form due to they will use every possibility to decline rebate. Why it is misinformation?

Yes, these are the lowest build variants of the 1060. single aluminum block coolers.

While it's true that the card is only 120w. the single block causes the lowest average boost, and finally, it will throttle much lower when it gets hot.

Just make sure to take a picture of your submitted application before sending it away, along with the box if you intend to throw it out later. I learned my lesson after having one company years ago claim that I never sent the bar code. Another time someone tried to pull that on me and I responded with the photo, to have it resolved.

Overall, people make too big a deal over rebates. Waiting a few months for ~$20 won't kill you and in my experience of several dozen MIRs over the years, I've only ever had those 2 issues above.
