MSI Starts Europe Only CashBack Program

Anyone who is in the market for a new gaming system take heed because who doesn’t want to save a few bucks? MSI has started a cash back program for those who buy qualifying Intel motherboards along with select Nvidia GeForce GPUs. For customers that qualify between now and September 28th, MSI is offering up to €60/£42, depending on the exact products of course.

While the likes of ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI have done mail in rebates and discounts, requiring the purchase of a bundle is a more infrequent tactic. In this case, the cash back is done after the fact and via a claim form online. In some ways, that resembles a mail-in rebate, just without the mailing part, instead relying on online submissions and still having the cash back being mailed. MSI had done a similar program earlier in the year and has added 4 more countries to the list this time.

For a list of qualifying products, you can visit this link here. Each product has a value that it contributes to the total cash back from the bundle. As expected, more expensive products have larger rebates, with the lowest possible rebate being £14. In order to qualify for £42, a customer would need to buy at least a GTX 980 and top tier X99/Z170 motherboard. It is interesting to see that the GTX 950 and AMD products do not qualify.

Amazon’s New Prime Credit Card Offers 5% Cash Back

Amazon is rolling out a brand new store card that gives holders that are Prime members 5% cash back on eligible Amazon.com purchases. The card is different than the current popular Amazon Rewards Visa from Chase, which does not offer the 5% cash back.

The new Amazon.com store card also gives holders the options of 5% cash back in the form of statement credit or 0% financing on purchases more than $149. The store card does not have an annual fee, is backed by Synchrony Bank and comes with fraud protection for piece of mind.  The holder must have their own Prime membership to be eligible for the cash back, as being an invited guest on a Prime account will not count. This card will be a good choice for those users who use Amazon Prime frequently and pay off cards every month, as it does carry a 25.99% APR.  Signing up for the card and being approved will get you a free $40 gift card to make the deal even better.

The only items that are not eligible are “Amazon Prime memberships, digital newspaper and magazine subscriptions, games and software downloads“, as stated by Amazon.
