Default Microcenter releases its BF ad....nuthin' really special, except....

Well, Microcenter has released its BF ad, seen here:

http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/...63#/057a4063/1



Browsed through, didn't see a lot that was "special" at all, except for these tidbits:


Page 2, bottom right corner: Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, $149.99


Page 9, left side: Antec Three Hundred Two case + Antec Basiq 550W modular 80Plus power supply, $79.99 after $10 MIR.

$30 for a 64GB USB Flash Drive isn't too shabby of a deal.
3TB External hard drive, $100
1TB 7200 rpm internal HD $60

180GB SSD $100

Barracuda 7200 SATA 6 GB/s internal
2TB $100
3TB $140

I didn't look at much else closely. Not knock my pants of prices, but decent enough.

Meh. Some of those prices look pretty close to their everyday 'sale' prices.

Well lets face it. Microcenter pretty much has the lowest prices around to begin with.

I'm waiting for the day that we are given money to take a product out of the store, just to get us in to buy other products.

Those days *did* happen, but it happened over a decade ago. Sorry, you missed out.

Now and then Microcenter has come close. I remember a couple of emails where they'd give you a smallish (~2GB I think it was) thumb drive or SD card if you visited one of their stores.

Newegg 3770K vs MC 3770K. Or any other CPU for that matter.

That Galaxy Tab 2 is obscenely tempting. A family member just broke my 8gb Nexus 7 and it is easier to buy a new tablet than to repair the damn thing.

It runs 4.1 and has pretty good hardware and at 150 vs 200 dollars. Decisions decisions...

That's so wrong it's funny on so many levels. Guess you don't understand MC will pricematch anything Newegg has....and will still undercut Newegg's cpu prices by a wide margin.

Well, if I get my rebates... will make 1 cent for a couple items before the cost of a stamp. Then again, ShopDiscover cashback will more than make up for the stamp.

Years ago I made money (maybe $10?) for buying the game Get Medieval from Frys, after rebate. Rebate was for $20, game was $10. And yes I got the rebate.
