Default Best Buy/Geek Squad Promo

Quote:
Found on another forum:
Till Sept 10th Best Buy will be selling Kingston 512mb PC2700 sodimm - 54.99 sale price with NO rebates.
So use the Coupon to save 90 dollars instantly.
The Sku for the Geek Squad installation is 1478877.
So final price 54.99 + 29.99 for the installation fee - $90 instant savings coupon= FREE!
Of course this is a HUGE YMMV...coupon was intended for purchase with a Desktop/notebook...
Needless to say, I'll be trying this out tomorrow with my Inspiron 8200. I've been wanting to get 1gb of RAM, now I have the means to do it FREE!!!

Yeah, it'* part of the coupon... But still. Find RAM cheap at under $60 and everything is free. If it'* over $60, chances are it'* still cheaper than purchasing the RAM online. Also, the coupon doesn't say anything about having it done multiple times. Just print off as many as you would like!

Damn it... Just checked the availability of the Kingston 512mb PC2700 SoDIMM in the stores near me and I'd have to drive 110 miles to Syracuse in order to get this... DAMN IT!!! I'll still call the local stores tomorrow to see if they have it, but if I have to drive to Syracuse... I don't know... That will be $24 in gas right there not to mention the loss of 4 hours of my life to drive there!!!...

Ha... Um... NO! I thought I'd ride my bike - PEDAL POWWA!!!

I meant there and back again... Google Maps shows it as a 1hr 59min drive...One way... And that doesn't include how long I'll be in the store... Argh...

Oh. Trust me I know how easy it is to replace in any computer. I have had my laptop torn down completely to clean it and replace the fan module. They are simple to take apart and reassemble. Only 1 screw to remove inorder to replace the ram.
