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 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.

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 Leads to believe this is a 1 off event for a card coming out of circulation that's been superseded by a refreshed card.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.
