    Hello to all, I just picked up the PNY Nvidia Video Card that was in the Best Buy ad this past week. The Card was on sale for $209.99 plus a $30.00 rebate for a final price of $179.99. Great Deal already, but that's not all. When I got home and opened the box I got a surprize. The bag that the card came in said: Congradulations !!!!! You have been automatically upgraded to the GF 4Ti 4600 from the 4400.

    I was pleased to say the least.

    Has this ever happened to anyone else or do they do this all the time?

    Thanks Beau

    Very cool!
    I'd like to buy a Slurpee and find $100,000 in the cup. [​IMG]

    I'd just like to buy a Slurpee, period. 7-11 has no presence in Cincinnati whatsoever.

    The only "bonus" I've ever gotten was a 13.6 GB Maxtor drive that we discovered came with "2 GB FREE!" once we opened the box. That isn't much by today's standards, but it was a free 15% increase nonetheless.
