I bought an 8800gtx about 3 weeks ago. my question is: how do they know when you bought the card? do you have to proove the date that you bought it seeing as they say up to 90 days after purchase. do i need to register the card asap?
The Step-up program is only valid if you purchased the Video Card through select Retail stores. But hey man if your really interested in this you (really) need to jump over to the EVGA website and read all about it rather than wait hours/days for people to do the research for you and post a response. Know what I'm saying?
As I just bought myself an EVGA card I can say one thing I noticed. Newegg was offering a 30 dollar mail in rebate, no mention of this on my reciept, but it requires you to send in the UPC as proof along with the reciept. This is normal for most mail in rebates. If you read the terms of the step up program, the original packaging for the card must be returned with the card. If the packaging is missing or damaged they'll reduce the value of the trade in card by 15%, which on a $570 card, comes out to be about 86 dollars. Hmm, $30 mail in rebate or $86 less on the step up, I think I'll skip this mail in rebate.
