The step-up does not offer any kind of "deal" to the consumer. I feel that it would have been more beneficial to sell the card on ebay and buy a new card somewhere else. The step-up program sucks, if anyone is learning towards evga because of this marketing scheme, think again.
Sometimes the queues are long but it is definitely a great program. I have used it on multiple occasions. You get credit for the full purchase price of your old card! Be patient. You can go from 110 to 6 in a couple of days sometimes..
