Looking for p180b deal

Post by jamesavery22 » Mon Apr 23, 2007 10:25 am

I know the $30 MIR expired the 17th. Are there any others? techonweb.com still have the best price?

If you live near a Micro Center, it's on sale for the next two weeks. Price (after $40 MIR) is $99.99. I know the MC near me has the P182-in-P180B box in stock, but YMMV with the location nearest you.

Thanks! Actually I do. Anyone know how MicroCenter does with rebates?

edit---

I guess the rebate is through Antec? http://microcenter.com/rebates/rebate_s ... l?id=27887

I bought an Ultra PSU from Micro Center a while back (there was a $30 MIR at the time, IIRC). It was an online submission, and the turn-around time was roughly a month; that's pretty good in my book.

My NewEgg rebate on the P180B case was sent to the same address as the one in the Micro Center rebate form, just a different department. I checked the website to see what my status was; it's going to be sent out sometime in mid-June. As long as everything's completed correctly, there's no reason you shouldn't get your rebate check.

Yeah I noticed the rebate for frys.com was the same from Antec, just for Fry's instead of microcenter. Course Frys sells the case for $119.99 as opposed to $139.99... Any chance microcenter does price matching to Frys? Else I'll wait.

I can't seem to find the rebate on Fry's website. How much is the rebate amount? AFAIK, Micro Center doesn't do price matches.

It was the same $30 rebate. Its expired though. Search for p180* over at slickdeals.net and you can find the old thread. Wonder if it will ever come back :\

i think i saw a a p180b on antech's b stock list a few weeks ago, http://www.antec.com/us/pro_b_stock.php , its not there now but i would keep checking up on the b stock list. the price drop for a small fix it job (maybe) is highly worth it.

Hello James,

We check CPU pricing on Mondays and Thursday. The price match will be effective in store and online on Tuesday and then again on Friday. If the price is still $119.99 tonight then it should be available at that price through us tomorrow.

Respectfully,

I understand you do price matching to newegg.com for CPUs. Would you price match in store this item: http://shop1.outpost.com/product/4843800? You sell it for $139.99(http://www.microcenter.com/byos/byos_si ... _id=244444),
FRYs has it for $119.99. Thanks for reading my email!

James

Kind of sounds like they think its a CPU though...

Have you tried printing out a copy of the e-mail reply and NewEgg's product page and taking it to the store to see if they'll honour their word?

I was at the Hilliard store yesterday to pick up a surge suppressor and some batteries - small world. :)

The Antec p180 rebate for Fry's is back. $119 with a $40 rebate. I saw it in my Chicago paper. It looks like its also at San Jose, CA and probably most other stores. Not sure if you can use the rebate at the Fry's website. I can't find the rebate online. One person on that fatwallet thread said that inside both his 180 and 180b were 182's.
