If you don't qualify, you can always join the other ten thousand RFD members begging for someone to sell them the combo at cost.
If you know someone who works for a qualifying company get them to give you a paystub... the shipping and credit card name & address don't have to match the account name. ;)

I didn't realize that suggesting fraud was allowed on these forums now.

Same price as last year pretty much. I think it ended up being $172 after all duties last year for the 2700k. Pretty much a free upgrade for me, i love this :)

For anyone who hasn't ordered the holiday deal before, be aware that Intel uses UPS for shipping. Expect to pay taxes + brokerage fees on top of the $38 shipping unless you ship it to a US address. If you are feeling adventurous you can also do your own customs clearance and avoid the extra UPS fees and just pay the taxes.

You only need to pay taxes I believe... the outrageous fees ups usually charges don't apply ( its included in the outrageous $38 shipping). The site even says if ups tries to charge you refuse and contact intel.

I think it added up to $10 extra for me last time.

IIRC it was usually a $10 Brokerage fee on top of the taxes that you have to pay. Also taxes are not calculated at the price that you paid for the item. When i look at the shipping sheet, the numbers don't match on anything, not sure how they get the numbers. But can't complain when the deal is still amazing.

the summer deal was much better...a hex core sandy bridge cpu. If you already have the core i7 2700k from the last holiday sale then this one is pretty much useless. On a side note has anyone figured out if rogers employees are eligible for this deal or not?

Not really useless since you can sell the 2700k for $180-$200 :)

cost of a i7 3770k is $105 + 40 s/h + $20 duties = $185. The quizzes take 2 hours to do. So if you sell the 2700k for $200 you will barely make $15 profit (2 hours of your life lost) for 0 performance gain (check reviews, its true). Only reason to get one at this point is possibly a resale later.

You're thinking of items you get from the store. For some reason the store items, purchased with chips, are shipped FedEx and Intel covers that. The Summer/Holiday deals are shipped UPS and brokerage fees will be charged. There are several threads about it on the retailedge forum.
