First time I recall seeing this: Microcenter with an open box demo iPad, no warranty, no return, no exchange.
Interesting. Never thought I'd see Microcenter go there. The only times I've bothered with Apple products at Microcenter was to pick up two previous gen certified Apple refurbished Macbooks (the final 2011 17" Pro and the 2015 15" Pro, i.e. the last one with normal ports) when they were out of stock everywhere across the country.

Sellers on craigslist have shown no restraint in the prices they've been asking for higher-end video cards and such, despite no warranty/return policies. Maybe Microcenter decided there's not much downside to following suit?

Found a few more no warranty, no return, no refund open boxes at Microcenter. Looks like an emerging pattern.

I guess we are in a period of oversupply of desktop power supplies as there have been several recent promotions among the more highly-regarded brands. Amazon right now is selling this EVGA one for $50:
EVGA SuperNOVA 120-GP-0650-X1, 650 G+, 80 Plus Gold 650W, Fully Modular, FDB Fan, with10 Year Warranty

Want to pep up an older system? Hyundai 120GB SSD's (with 5-year warranty) are going for $19.99 each at both Amazon and Office Depot. The latter offers some bonus deals for free items if you spend $50/$75/$100/$125, such as this UV sanitizer box for free if you spend $75.

Not sure if these are great deals or not, but I got this to my job and thought maybe someone interested in Samsung products might see something they could use. I hope you don't have to have a business account to use these

FYI: If you qualify for any sort of discount, Samsung offers different discounts and limits and buy back amounts depending on which type of account that you log in under. e.g, our son is an EMT and a college students, and he gets different discounts/offers/final prices on his two different accounts. Same for my wife, who gets different offers/final prices on her EMT vs HCW/work account.

This is hit or miss. There are some exclusives, I think, but the things I want are never the exclusives. I get the benefits through work too, and I've had some pretty good luck with tablets and TVs.
 
Here's a little deal I thought I'd share here since some posters turned me onto the quality of the new Google TV interface. Sling is offering a new chromecast w/ Google TV if you sign up for a month of service, both new and returning customers are eligible: https://www.sling.com/deals?AID=13158461&PID=4485850&SID=f04150264c9f11eca06e3e364c14c4010INT&cvosrc

On top of that, you can stack Rakuten money back discounts to bring the cost down as low as $10 (I believe it's $15 back using Rakuten for anyone plus another $10 back for new Sling subscribers). Not a bad deal for what's essentially a new Chromecast w/ Google TV + a month of Sling.

Certain American Express cards have a $200 cashback offer for purchases at dell.com/amex of $800 or more. This can be combined with another Amex offer for 1 rewards point for every $1 spent at Dell.com, and some lucky folks may even be able to stack it with yet a third Amex offer for $120 cashback for a purchase of $599 or more at Dell.com.

You can also sign up for Dell's rewards program before making your purchase with your Amex card and earn 3% in Dell rewards for spending $800 or more.

Dell is running some Black Friday deals on laptops, desktops, servers, monitors, networking equipment, and other stuff that are ending tonight at 1 AM CST.

In addition, I just discovered that Rakuten is offering 10% back on dell.com purchases too. I only have the $120 offer from Amex, but that's still a nice stack and I might pull the trigger on a laptop tonight.
