One day only: $40 off of a $120 or higher order at TigerDirect.com

TigerDirect

Giant online computer and electronics retailer TigerDirect.com is offering consumers "Cyber Monday 2," its own unofficial "holiday" on Dec. 16.

The sale amounts to $40 off a $120 order. It leverages a pre-existing deal that TigerDirect.com was running -- one which expires today -- as well adding (or rather subtracting) more via another deal which they had used before.

First off is a $20 rebate on $100+ order from TigerDirect.com. That is a rebate, and will require customers to download and use a rebate form. Only one rebate can be used per user, billing address, company or household.

Meanwhile, by using V.me by Visa, customers can cut another $20 off a $120 or more purchase from TigerDirect.com. V.me does not require the use of a Visa card, despite the name. Instead, it is more like PayPal and is really credit card agnostic. Similarly, MasterCard has the service MasterPass whcih operates in the same manner. This is an instant discount and does not require a rebate form to be filled out.

TigerDirect.com charges sales tax in Fla., Ga., Idaho, Il., North Carolina, South Dakota, and Texas.

To make this work, users could use filler items to hit the $100 price point (it would be a shame to miss out simply because your item is $99.99, right?). Examples are:

Creamer (yes, coffee creamer) at $2.68
Compressed Air at $5.99
Antistatic Premoistened Wipes for Electronics, Cloth at $7.99
Six-Outlet Power Strip, 6-Foot Cord, 1-15/16 x 10-3/16 x 1-3/16, Ivory at $8.66
Duracell DL2016BPK Medical Battery - 3 Volt, 90mAh, Lithium, Home Use, 1 Pack at $2.49

The following fine print exists at TigerDirect.com:

$20 back on any $100 order (net of any coupons or other discounts) excluding gift cards on a single transaction receipt, for orders made at TigerDirect.com, TigerDirect.ca, or the mobile web sites of either brand. Online/Web only. Rebate redemption does not invalidate eligibility of other product specific rebates or promotions. Eligibility is limited to end-consumers only. Business customers or commercial resellers are ineligible to participate in this offer. Rebate must be postmarked within 60 days of purchase. Order must ship for rebate to be valid. Cancelled or returned orders are ineligible for rebate redemption, and any refund or credit resulting from an item returned after rebate issuance will be reduced by the amount of the rebate. Limit (1) only ONE rebate per person, billing address, or household. The rebate is in USD currency and may be paid with a prepaid reward card. It is recommended to keep copies of all materials submitted for your records.
