CC is holding the 2700X at $220 until Dec 28. That also happens to be the lowest price of the 2700 right now. Banger of a deal if I ever saw one. Still comes with BL3 or Outer Worlds, which I missed out on by just 2 weeks, being an early adopter.

CPU-Z database seems to hold the 3500X closer to the 2700X's single thread score than the 3700X's, which makes sense from the 3500X's max turbo freq.

Don't think CC has an Alberta store, but they have plenty of stock for online. Maybe you could get ME to price match, but I really dunno if they're willing to cut 50% of their price tag for that.
They have a policy of price match + 5% further discount if cheaper elsewhere. I could give that a try for sure.
