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!

Product Ordering Limits

You may order Deal 1 OR Deal 2.
Rockstars and Rock Legends may order Deal 1 or Deal 2, and they may also add Deal 3 to their order.
Rockstars and Rock Legends may order Deal 3 only.
Example orders:

Example A: Order Deal 1 OR Deal 2 only
Example B: Order Deal 3 only (Rockstars and Rock Legends only)
Example C: Order Deal 1 OR Deal 2 + Deal 3 (Rockstars and Rock Legends only)
Shipping
Please note! For Example C, you will be charged only once for shipping. However, if you place two distinct orders at two different times (say, Example A first, and then Example B at a later date), you will be charged shipping for each order.

$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.

Are you really that bored and lonely? Not even going to make fun of you, because I feel bad for you.

I got to Rockstar (40,000 points), takes about 5 hours.
I would suggest doing it for anyone who plans to take part in the summer 2014 promo.

Really tempted to do this but I'm a software developer but was verified using my work e-mail. I don't want them calling to verify, lol. But I've heard that since we are such a huge company HR will just verify that I work here and won't give any other information. They have better stuff to do than to waste time looking up my title, lol.

I highly doubt they even contact the company.
