I have a friend that works at best buy that will do this for me but he doesn't know what to do (nor do I), is there a guide or walk through I can give to him so he can get signed up?
good thing i read your post ken. I didnt know i had required learnings to do since im already producer. just did them all
I work for one of the companies but not on the retail side.
It only took me about 45 minutes to complete all of the required quizzes, plus the additional 1000pt quizzes necessary to reach 10,000pts.
Some of the questions are tricky because they use ambiguous, non-technical language.
Has anyone got a shipping confirmation for their 4930K yet? I am a little worried because Intel charged my VISA (different name then my cousin who owns the account) and when I went to try to log into the account today it tells me the account is inactive..Anyone else seeing anything like this?
I asked in the other thread if it was ok to use a different person's CC to purchase and everyone said it was fine. I hope they didn't get me fucked over..
Apparently Intel decided to ruin my holiday..My cousin got an email saying that after a "random review of their records" that his account was terminated and he was banned from IRE due to to this:
"Impersonating other users or members or sending false verification information is considered fradulent activity and will result in the termination of Member's Account, and may result in a Member being permanently banned from the Program."
If your order has not been shipped yet, the funds will be refunded shortly..
What we can't figure out is that he/me did nothing wrong..He works for BestBuy, and this email from them was sent to his work email, the same one he used to sign up for the account..They verified everything electronically from since he has a @GeekSquad.com email domain."...
I did everything for him, he never logged into the account after he was created and verified, and I did all the required lessons needed to get to "Producer" status..I promptly ordered a 3930K (early AM EST on the 6th)..
The only think I can think of is that Intel didn't like that the name on the credit card didn't match the name on the account, but I am sure there are at LEAST a few hundred people out there that work in retail and don't have a CC of their own..I asked a couple veterans in the other thread that got closed if anyone had used someone else's CC and two people told me they had done it before without a problem..
I mean unless Intel really under estimated the demand for the 3930K and had a panic attack when they saw that nobody wanted the 4770K they decided to cancel some orders...I am sure if that was the case I wouldn't be the only one reporting back saying it happened though no?
Lastly, they haven't refunded the money to my CC so I am "Hoping" it is already processed and will still squeak through but if it does it will be a Christmas Miracle...It was going to be a gift for myself, I told my family not to get me anything despite their persistent bugging of what to get me since I spent some money on myself and now this happens..
