Default XFX Offering GTXCASHBACK to Early Adopters

Early adopters getting the difference back on their GTX 260 and 280.

http://www.xfxforce.com/en-us/Featur...spx?lang=en-us

I think this is a first in graphics card history isn't it.

ATM they're taking names and e-mails, might have to wait a few days to see if it is really going to turn into real cash or not.

Default XFX 280GTX/260GTX Early Buyers: Cashback Up to $120

Link
Quote:
Being the First Has Its Rewards
If You’re an XFX GeForce® GTX 280 or GeForce® GTX 260 Owner
Being the first to do anything is a rewarding experience. And now, if you were one of the first to purchase one of our XFX GeForce GTX 280 or GeForce GTX 260 graphics cards, there’s another potential reward in your future—cold hard cash*.

Sudden changes in the market have caused the price for the XFX GeForce GTX 280 and the XFX GeForce GTX 260 to drop. As a result, we want to thank you for your continued loyalty and for believing in the XFX brand. And, to show our commitment to you, we are issuing up to $120 CASH BACK to customers who purchased one of these cards between June 16, 2008 and July 11, 2008. The actual amount of cash back will be determined based on the model purchased, as well as the date and price of the purchase.

More details about our CASH BACK offer will be posted on our Website in the next few days. In the meantime, please feel free to fill out the form below and we will send you information on how to sign up for the CASH BACK offer:

* Cash back offer valid only in the U.S. and Canada
Edit
What about the rest of the world?
Do they sell the card also in Europe?

Lolz. So first they lower the price of the card 150$ to keep people from going ATI. And now they offer to pay you to keep your Nvidia card and not go ATI.

All this while ATI will have the 280 sandwiched between a card that outperforms it heavily and priced only slightly higher and a card that underperforms it slightly and is priced a lot lower.

Nvidia got pwnd this round.
