[Microsoft Store] Kingston HyperX Alloy FPS Pro Tenkeyless Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Red - $69.99 + HST + 1% Ebates/3% Honey - OOS

Been looking for a mechanical keyboard for a while, without breaking the bank. Also didn't want crazy RGB colours flying around and stumbled onto this keyboard that has all the base essentials for my WFH needs, and some light gaming.

This is a keyboard *without a numeric keypad*

One thing to note is that the switch is a Cherry MX Red - so for you Brown/Blue users, may not be to your liking.
The price sitting at $69.99 + HST ($79.09) is the lowest I've found, and the Microsoft store will grab you another 1% cashback on ebates. I took a gamble and used Honey which ranges from a "1-4%" rewards, and will keep you guys posted. Other sites are showing $89.99 + HST, including their actual website.

Shipping: June 6th, 2020 and shipping says will be there June 10th, 2020.

Specs:
Part Number: HX-KB4BL1-US/WW
Switch type Cherry MX Red
Backlighting Red LED
Form factor Tenkeyless (87 keys)
Media keys Secondary
Preset lighting profiles 6x
Cable type Braided, detachable (should be included based on reviews)
Operation style Linear
Actuation force 45cN
Actuation point 2mm
Total travel distance 4mm
Operating life (minimum) 50M keystrokes

Costco Xbox Live Gift Card:
Also, thank you to sid8tive for the Discounted Xbox Gift Card purchase at Costco to get around 9% off. **I have not tried purchasing with Xbox giftcards - if anyone has an experience please post to validate**

https://www.costco.ca/.product.100287563.html - $25 for $22.99

Purchasing the cards total makes it $67.98 for $75.00 value of $7.02 off your purchase through this method (~9%) , possibly stackable with Honey or Ebates

I just bought the Plugable mech keyboard from Amazon and it's very solidly built. There are 2 versions (a louder switch and a quieter switch) I can't remember which is which but both versions were less than $60. White LED backlight was another huge plus as I don't care for red backlighting on the highly regarded Redragon keyboards.

Edit: went to find link and both are OOS at the moment. Great deal on a brand name mech though.

You can lower the price by roughly 9% more by buying XBOX GCs from Costco and using that to pay for this.

Just got an update from the Honey - gave me 3%. I dont know if you can stack the additional gift card 9%, and still earn the 3 percent off Honey - that would be a steal!

I bought one because it was a mechanical cherry red tenkeyless keyboard from a company I'm familiar with (love the Hyper X headphones) for under $100.

Ticks a lot of boxes.
