I doubt there will be more on sale on Dec 26th so I went ahead and bought a couple of SSDs and an NVMe. As for GPUs, don't think stock will replenish until a few months into the new year.

Which SSD stood out to you in terms of a deal? Most of them that I was looking at are at the same price as last week.

None really. Smiling Face With Open Mouth. They were cheaper on Black Friday but I got a couple of the Adata 240GB SSDs and a Kingston 500GB NVMe. I doubt they'll have any door crasher deals due to covid restrictions in many cities. If they do get cheaper online it may be a few bucks less but I'd rather get it now and avoid a sellout.

As usual, terrible 'sale' prices from an even worse company. Please don't support these guys, just buy online elsewhere.

Also note they have marked everything desirable as "final sale" so good luck if you ever need help with anything.

I couldn't disagree more with your post. I've found Memory Express has been great to deal with over the years.

The sales may not be great, but unsure why you think that as a company they are worse than terrible. Have only had great experiences with them in-store and online. Can't say the same for CC, other than a few good employees I've dealt with over the years.

Bitcoin is 30K CAD. No individual can compete with that demand.

People on this site and other deals places has been super toxic about the deal available. The manufacturers have given no stock to these stores. They aren't going to put a discount to clear out stock they don't have. I've always had amazing experiences with memory express, from uber price beat when I ordered PC parts online in 2011, to returning a 5700xt that I was having major driver / crashing issues with last year, to having everything I wanted at the same or better prices than amazon in store (I cancelled my orders with them) and updating the bios for the ryzen processor and mounting the cooler FOR FREE. Memory express is good. The final sale stuff is covid related and to deter scalpers from ordering RTX 3000, RX 6000 and Ryzen 5000 products. People like you make places like RFD just seems like an entitled asshats. Clean yourself up. They open stores outside of the usual vancouver / toronto as well. Stop riding bezos you sheep.

I Cant belive some of the toxic post on here about sales.
Even though some of the sales aren't that great this year it doesn't mean people should be bashing mem ex. They have always gone above and beyond to make they customers happy.
They Had fantastic sales in the past and uber price beat which I'm sure a lot of benefited from.
So what if this year sales isn't all jazzed up to be. We are in a the middle of a gobal pandemic with inventory shortages. Give them a break. A lot of companies are tight on their pocket books right now.
If you compare their prices it's all on pair with most out there.
Be grateful this amazing company is still around and keeping their employees working.
They all have families and mouths to feed .

Just remember we all in this together and the only way we all going to get through it is by support one another and local businesses.

Memory Express has always been good to me. Got my 3080 from them and it was easy. Just placed a call over the phone, didn't need a deposit and one month later, I picked it up. They forgot to give me the cold war code and after I called them, they sent the code via email the next day. Their IPR is pretty decent too. They replaced my glorious model D twice due to a squeaky scroll wheel with no issues. The sales suck this year, but that's the same for everyone during the pandemic. As far as final sale goes, it's to deter scalpers or people who buy like 3 GPUs only to return 2 of them because it didn't fit their built aesthetically. They are the only major computer parts shop in Edmonton, and you can even pick out their parts and they will build the computer for you. If Memory Express carries the parts that I want, I will tend to buy from them if possible.
