I was thinking of posting this in the For Sale/Wanted section, but will post it here as a freebie since it's a free service for all who come here on ABT forums:
Anybody who wants that new CPU for $80 cheaper at Microcenter than could be found anywhere else, including Newegg, just let me know. It could only be picked up at the local Microcenter, not bought online for such a huge discount.
I live only 2 miles away from Microcenter (near DC), and go there roughly once a week (it's right next to my favorite grocery store Trader Joe's at Federal Plaza, and the plaza next to it is called Congressional Plaza.. how cool is that - anyways, me silly)!
Just send me the $ (look up my Heat under the name Bo_Fox - I'd certainly want to boost my reputation further with this), but you'd also have to pay for the tax and the shipping (with insurance included if you wish). It'd still end up to be around $50 cheaper or so than anywhere online for retail. And you get the store receipt too, of course.
No charge for my time - I have plenty of shipping boxes as I do a lot of Ebaying, and there are post offices 1 mile from my home. No problem for you fellow ABT'ers! I'd go there ASAP once I receive the funds, and even ship it to you on the same day if possible.
Hope to be of some service!
Shipping to the US only, though - as I had some problems with Italy in particular (delayed shipments for like 6 weeks with 3-4 of my Ebay stuff sold to Italians) and it's so much more expensive and risky for $200+ items, but I could do up to $100 products for Int'l shipping to anywhere except Italy.
(I guess I should update this thread once in a while with such bargain CPUs that could be picked up at the B&M Microcenter - if any of you see the deals/prices, please feel free to update this thread with info)
