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.
Which card? Remember that new cards (like 285/295) are sometimes extremely limited.

Also, if you sell your card on ebay, there is no way that you could back what you paid.
