    Micro Center has this new rewards program. If you sign up for this you get a free 2GB Flash Drive or SD card (some home promotions give 4GB flash drive). You need to select a pin to identify your reward account.

    Now is the cool part - Before Feb 15th if you buy anything from the store you instantly get a $10 reward coupon which is good for your next $10 or more purchase. If you buy more than $20 to claim your $10 coupon you get one more $10 coupon.

    Here is what I did. signed up for the rewards, got a 2 GB flash drive (usually they give their home brand one, but for me they ran out of it and gave me a kingston :D). Bought a Open box USB hub for $5. Instantly I got a $10 reward coupon. Used the coupon to buy a $20 Pioneer DVDRW drive. Got another $10 coupon today. Damn! I need to buy some other thing with the new coupon.

    This is fun.

    Anybody tried it?

    Reward sign up is before Feb 1st 2009.

    Sounds sweet. They're getting a visit on the last day of the month from me :D

    So if I spend $200 with the rewards program, then I get 10 $10 vouchers? But is it only on cheaper items? Like let's say I got an i7 920...

    I just signed up last weekend, but they gave me only 5% coupon (not $10). Why?

    I used it to buy the new retail WD Green 1TB 16mb for $99.99 - $5 (5% coupon) = $95 + $7.83 tax = $102.83 out the door.

    Yeah I got the 5% coupon. The guy I talked to there said they're basically going to be changing the coupon every few weeks or so, so in a week or so look for something other than 5%.
    suraswami says thanks.
