Furthermore, you need to have a valid proof of purchase from participating retailers. If you’re eligible, the claim process is really simple and shouldn’t take too long to complete. The promotion ends on the 18th April 2016, and all claims must be filled 30 days after the purchase date. Although, you can’t leave it longer than 60 days to complete.
To register your product and instigate a claim please visit this page. Cashback offers are always a great incentive and reduces the price of a product you’re considering by a decent amount. Perhaps, this is enough of a saving and an encouragement to upgrade to a higher-end model. Please remember the promotion is for a limited time so it’s important to register your claim as soon as possible. Personally, I feel the Z170A Pro Carbon is a bargain even without the cashback offer.
Gigabyte launched a new incentive that will give gamers more value and increased warranty as well as direct RMA process for customers of the G1 Gaming series motherboards. There are several different tiers that will provide different benefits based on what G1 Gamer product that you have purchased. The new service is, in all its simplicity, called the G1 GAMER PACKS.
A direct RMA process is one of the best things a company can offer and that’s something anyone who ever had to deal with stubborn shops can sign. The company behind the product is the natural partner to offer support when you have trouble as well as replace it if it can’t be fixed. Eliminating the middle man saves time, money, and nerves.
Customers that register their product newly purchased Gigabyte G1 motherboard will also get a longer warranty, up to 5-years, with express exchange service and replacement in advance option. On top of that, customers also get a cashback bonus when they upgrade this current motherboard to a successor in the future, making the upgrade quite a bit cheaper.
“The biggest wish for most gamers is to be the best and to have top grade PC Gaming hardware they can trust”. GIGABYTE takes care of these wishes with our new G1 Gamer Packs. Not only do we offer our customers a direct RMA service in case of possible hardware issue, we also offer G1 warranty extensions and the customer will also “receive a next-gen technology-bonus of up to £75 free!”, Timmy Huang, Western Europe Managing Director at GIGABYTE, explained the new service offensive.
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.

What’s better than getting a relative good graphics cards cheap? Easy, getting some of the money back after you purchased it. That is exactly what you can do now as EVGA offers European customers a €25 cashback on GeForce GTX 960 cars in July.
The exact period of purchase must be between the 6th of July and 2nd of August 2015 to be eligible and the end-user is required to register their new graphics card and follow the steps of the cashback claim process online at eu.evga.com. As always with these cashback programs, you need to purchase the unit from participating partners and the list is quite long. Among them are prominent players such as CaseKing, Scan Computers, dabs, Webhallen, and many more.
The EVGA GeForce GTX 960 comes as either a 2GB or 4GB version and it is equipped with the pretty amazing ACX 2.0+ cooler.
It features a memory MOSFET cooling plate (MMCP) that reduces MOSFET temperatures by up to 11°C and optimised Straight Heat Pipes (SHP) that additionally reduce GPU temperature by 5°C. The fans are optimised for the perfect airflow and run on double ball bearings with an extreme low power motor. More air with less power. The fans turn off completely if the card is below 60 degrees and the graphics card also features a dual BIOS with quick-switch.
Any customer who buys a selected MSI motherboard with an MSI graphics card from an official MSI reseller is eligible for cashback.
The selected motherboards are MSI’s X99 range, the MSI Z97 GAMING line-up, the Z97S SLI Krait Edition, and selected H97 models, while the graphics cards include the GTX960, GTX970, GTX980, R9 290, or R9270X. Any combination of the two could earn a lucky punter up to €50 cashback.
