Thread: The Best (fair) Scam To Get Cheap Hardware

  1. #1
    Okay, here is how you do it:

    First you need to find out what exactly you want (obviously).

    Then find one of those stores that have one of those policies that says "if you can find the product for cheaper then we will beat it by xx%." *where xx is a percentage value.

    Then find the product at www.microcenter.com or super cheap another store. Wala, you get a great deal.

    Here is an example:

    All-In-Wonder 9800 Pro 128MB 8x AGP Video Card

    Then go to or circuitcity.com or another store with and find the same item and such a policy:

    Online Price Match Plus Guarantee


    And you save some serious dough!

    Might work.

    However, many stores with that kind of policy insist that the price they will beat must be from another "brick and mortar" competitor as they can't/won't compete against on-line retailers.

    Yes indeedy.
    About 15 minutes from my humble abode, no less.

    Even better, they recently redid the layout of their store and have a entire, new section devoted to aftermarket modding gear. The department head told me that in the next few months they will be stocking all sorts of cool stuff. Their fan selection has improved quite a bit, as has the HSF selection, but the best news is the watercooling parts he hopes to carry. Pelts, radiators, pumps....ah, Paradise&#33;
