If you work at an eligible retail store, you can register for an account and take training quizzes to get points for the AMD bundle. The bundle consists of an AMD Athlon 64 processor 3200+, Asus K8V SE Deluxe motherboard, heat sink and fan, fully assembled for $179 after a $100 mail-in rebate.

The first quiz is all ready up, the next two come out on June 10 and 15.

Damn, AMD used to do this quite a few years ago. They stopped after a while. To bad they didn't have a rebate when I took part in it way back when, and I no longer work for an appropriate company. The quizes back then were pretty simple, with all the answers within a couple clicks on their website.

There's a link somwhere in your employee toolkit that allows you to see your paystub, from there just print it off.
Ask a manager how to see your paystub via ET if you're lost

We apologize but access to RetailPro is only available to participating AMD retail partners.
Please click here to return to Retail Access.
I just sent in a copy of my pay stufb...I wonder if that is why...


If I can get in this deal...I am going to. The CPU alone is 290 on Newegg.

I love posts like these! I got in on the intel retailedge program (the 3.0c does 4.0 now) and I'll try to get on this.

Thanks for posting Aevron. :D

I can't wait for the 10th to come. I did the early quiz, so I am pretty much guaranteed to get in on this ahead of the late arrivers. :D Retail edge is also working up their next purchase plan, it is still a few months away, but I am happily posting from my HT P4 3.0 that they were kind enough to do last time.

These are the moments that it pays to be a retail grunt.


BTW--If you aren't doing hpinfolab.com, then you are missing out on big time discounts on their printers, pda's, dvd burners, and dig cams. Huge discounts.
I am buying a 5 mp dig cam and 7060 printer for under 100 after rebate. Nice!

You have to deal in AMD product, or product containing AMD product :) Walmart does. Target sells software, but I haven't seen any hardware.

yeah the intel deal was looking sweet, almost made me want to endure bby for just that much longer so i could get the deal. Oh well, i think getting paid 2x more now is worth the loss in that damn sweet discount.

Any idea of what will be in the intel package? The intel package was a better deal, but the motherboard doesn't allow any overclocking. :(

Are these tests on that site or in store? The friend I am getting to do this is computer stupid so I think there's no chance if it was an in store thing. I'll do them for him if they are online....

They are online and can be accessed through retailaccess.com. I have not heard anything about the intel plan yet, but the last one was nice. I just wish that AMD could have given a better chip. After all they did just release the 3800. It looks like they are giving away far cry with the bundle as well. Now I'm going to have to buy a nice gfx card for it. The amd rep I spoke with told me that they are trying to do this better than intel in the sense that they arn't sold out in one day.

I have no clue what the next intel deal will be, but the point accumulation towards the next deal is going strong. The late summer estimate is mine, based on my points and their stated point totals needed to do the deal.

Either way, sign me up for both. Plenty of family to line up for a new pc, if I don't just keep them for myself. More power for folding, that's what I figure.

I just got this E-Mail today about the AMD epp pertaining to when you can go online to purchase the combo.

XXXXXXXXX,



The ordering process will not be available until June 15th. Regarding your sales points, they take some time due to them being faxed in.



Best regards,



AMD RetailPro Team

I have a couple of questions. Where is the link to order the processor and motherboard combo? Is it going to be live after I take the quiz on June 10th, I will have the points required. Also, on Sunday I submitted an AMD system sale that I made a couple of days prior. The points have not shown up yet on my profile, could you look into this please?



XXXXXXXX

Thought this might interest everyone that was waiting on the deal.

Just get a 100 on every quiz and you won't have to send in anything but a pay stub which I intend to do this weekend. As stated before it takes not more than two clicks on AMDs website to find the info and you get two tries to pass.
