Deal Details

Last Edited by cricket702 November 21, 2013 at 07:27 PM
Just gonna add this at the top so we avoid more of these questions and thank you shizdizzle. Also they DO verify so it's not easy to get in.
Quote from shizdizzle View Post :
So, we go through this every year, let me explain how this works before this thread gets out of control.

The only way to get in on this deal is if you work for one of the companies below, or if you commit fraud and falsify documents saying you work at one of those places.

Also, if you work in corporate or have a non-retail position at one of the companies listed, while you are not supposed to, you can get an account, get verified, and get in on the deal.

OP, you might want to include something in your original post indicating this so the thread doesn't turn into every other post asking how you can get in on this.
That time of the year again folks! Same as always, only open for retail associates at select stores.

Mark your calendars for December 4—the Holiday Deal will go live that afternoon! DO NOT miss this one because it's the first time we're offering a 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor. While you're waiting, complete the requirements and make sure your employment verification is current.

Who Can Get a Deal

Everyone except Roadies can participate in the Holiday Deal.
Rockstars and Rock Legends get special pricing.


In addition, to participate, your employment verification must be up to date!

$129 AR FS No Tax in most states for the Same SSD in 240GB [tigerdirect.com]
Great Motherboard reviews to go with the new 4770K Cpus [anandtech.com]


requirements

1) Be employed by a company on the approved list
2) Submit documentation (paystub usually) that you are employed at said company
3) Once approved, you must be at producer level to qualify for the deals
3a) producer starts at 10,000 points and rockstar is 40,000 points
3b) In order to get points, you must take online multiple choice tests. These can range anywhere from a few clicks to several minutes
4) If you fail the test and retake it multiple times until you get the right answer, you will get half-credit. Example: 500 point test = pass the first time 250 points if you pass it afterwords.

hope this helps.

Deals 1 and 2 are excellent. Deal 3 is TERRIBBBBBBBLEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

tiers:
roadie <10,000 points
producer 10,000 points or more
rockstar 40,000 points or more
rocklegend maintain rockstar status for at least a year.

jeez....i'm always slightly jealous when these come around. I'd gladly give someone $120 plus for that 4770k if it were possible. Thats such a sweet deal when these come around. Is it possible for me to be a 1 hour a year employee at any of these places so i can get in on these things? : P

Just have to register, do some of their quizzes,verify you employment and then buy stuff on the 4th. They DO verify employment so no getting around that.

You could always make sure one of your family members is working at one of those places during the holiday times and hope they get through. :p

So, if I know someone that works in an AT&T store for a few months now, I just need to get them to create an account, answer a few quizzes, and then they buy a super discounted processor? What's the highest level someone can get up to within a few days? Can they become a Rock Legend, or just a Producer in that time?

Schweeet CPU deals. Unappetizing SSD.
Anyway the rest of this (soon to be 20pg thread) should be about the best* LGA 1150/2011 MOBO & RAM to compliment your i7 CPU selection.

*Best could indicate: value, OC ability, reliability/stability, functionality, footprint...
