[Canada Computers] EVGA 500W 80 Plus Power Supply - $29.99 after MIR

My PSU recently got short circuited and need a budget friendly option.

Came across this PSU on Canada Computers originally priced at 59.99, then after $15.00 discount and a $15 Mail In Rebate from EVGA, the PSU unit is $29.99.

I was looking at a Mobo with a $60 Mail In Rebate but balked due to my long memory of companies 'loosing' or 'never getting' or 'having incorrectly filled out' MIR forums. Is this still a problem with MIR's these days?

In the age of twitter and facebook, one post about bad service or not getting your MIR can lead to a PR headache. I would assume that if the company offers this incentive and doesn't deliver then there will be hell to pay? hahaha

Honestly when purchasing, just assume you're probably not gonna get the MIR. You'd only get them half the time and they're not always cheques, but instead a gift card. MIR is such terrible practice, but not many people even submit them. However I'd never had any issues with EVGA in particular.

EVGA has never failed on my rebates for video cards and power supply in the past

I've gotten 3/3 EVGA rebates I've done in the past years. Very reliable.

Corsair as well.

I’ve built quite a few budget builds for friends/family, and usually use the EVGA or Corsair ones. So far, no complaints.

The only time I’ve never got the rebate was my own error (sent wrong UPC – USA vs Canadian sticker).

The problem is the time & effort for these stupid things, IMO. Unless it’s something I must have or new that won’t be going on sale anytime soon, I generally just avoid them, lol.

You probably won't find anything better for this pricel. Solid quality and all, BUT if you can spend a bit more, I would suggest getting a full modular. That 650 B3 for $60 after MIR is a very decent option at this price.

If you missed this deal keep an eye out on newegg, they are sometimes offered around this price. Never had an issue with EVGA MIR. I have owned this PSU for a couple of years now on a 24/7 NAS/workstation. No issues whatsoever.

EVGA extends a warranty for all PSUs purchased after June 5th till December 31. So that cheap piece is qualified up to a 5 year warranty.
But the CC's description can be not full or a real model of that PSU is not EVGA 500 W1, 80+ WHITE 500W. A warranty on the CC's website is 1 year only.
