Possible Slickdeal? big YMMV i7 2600k for $230 I7 960 for $200 Microcenter

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I saw on the Microcenter website frontpage that sometimes they list processor deals just below the laptop deal. I happened upon a deal at 7am this morning that shows the i7 2600K for $229.99 and the i7 960 for $199.99. However, when you try to add to cart it shows up as the regular prices....

Note: This deal should pop up for you too. Just keep refreshing the Microcenter frontpage until you see these processor deals.

Wondering if any one can make something out of this... perhaps price match or complain a lot to Microcenter in hopes they will honor this price? big YMMV here I am guessing but maybe it will work for someone?

I've attached a picture for proof.

Also found this image eventually, put my mouse over the date/time to show it was from today. I'll be calling them tomorrow to see if they will honor it.

Called the Philly Microcenter. Manager says they'll need physical proof of the $229.99. In other words looks like a trip to Microcenter is in order .

Update: they will not honor the $229 price.
