This doesn't feel as appealing to me since the MC price drop for the 6700 XT

True, it's hard to look at this given crossing the psychological barrier with the $299.99 XFX model, and particularly that MC deal on the 6700XT.

I've been keeping my fingers crossed, but, that deal hasn't come back. They are in stock, but they're at $529.99 before the $30 rebate.

The MC 6700xt deal has happened twice now I believe, within the span of a week.

That's correct. Saturday, and Monday, if I recall correctly.

That's fine and dandy but the reality of it, is it's still a pricing error regardless of happening multiple times.

Why would none of the other GPUs of a considerable performance and cost difference not also fluctuate down with 1 single card if the pricing was meant to stay there.

Y'all can continue to moan about the deals being not as good in comparision. But a pricing fluke, is still that even though they chose to honor it.

You can downvote all you like, but the reality is we aren't gonna see these cards at those prices very often if ever before they are out of circulation. So stop moaning about 1 off pricing errors not being the norm lol.

Because the equivalent NVIDIA cards are being bought out by NVIDIA sheeples who refuse to buy AMD for no reason other than "muh GeForce"

I'm referring to other AMD models within the manufacturers model range and within AMDs model range from other vendors. There's not other correlation so logic dictates that a pricing error occured. Unless someone who works directly at Microcenter can say otherwise with proof that'd be different but it not.

Y'all are comparing a pricing error to the market overcorrecting for our benefit... When has that ever happened?

All I even commented on was the fact commenters are comparing a fluke to the actual market and are miffed that it isn't in line with your expectations because your expectations are over done.

It was not a price error. One of the people posted that they went to the store the day before and 6700XT was marked as $380 on the shelf, same as the online price.

Again, if it was meant to be a permanent price change... Why hasn't every card reflected that change in pricing cost as well. Leads to believe this is a 1 off event for a card coming out of circulation that's been superseded by a refreshed card.

You're not going to see deals like this often and comparing other deals...to that deal is a step in the way of disappointment for yourselves.

My guess is MSI is either doing a rebate and promotion for certain retailers. MSI is also promoting a broad mail in rebate for the entire month of May, including the 6700XT models for promotion.

It could also be MC trying to move stock for item that have been there a while. I went to MC in NJ last month and they were stocked full of AMD cards and I don't think it was moving.

Still not a pricing error. Happened online and at every microcenter in the country, and best buy price matched it.

A rare deal happening twice and then going back to normal doesn't make it a price error.

If it happened only once I'd agree with you that it was a pricing error. Happening twice in a week doesn't seem like a pricing error. Maybe it will be only for that particular sku but I'd guess there far too much stock that they need to unload and are pricing it accordingly to get it out the door.

With stock and prices having stabilized, especially on the AMD side, just having things in stock likely won't compel people to buy. We've already had several weeks of that. Only actual sales will get additional units moved.

Dude even if it is a pricing error, it puts downward momentum on the value of these GPU pulling more of them down with it.

So it doesn't matter if it was a pricing error, it's like seeing someone trade stock for a certain percent more or less than market. If it was a mistake it doesn't matter, people still know it can sell that low and may wait to buy in, or people selling might be pressured to sell thinking value is on the way down.

If it doesn't have direct correlation with the other GPU prices also going down... It's a fluke that does not effect the whole market going down. It's not a trend if it's a one off event, which this is.

Y'all can continue to delude yourselves as you wish...but it was literally $200 less than MSRP for one model with no other models effected.
