Wow.  Just got the details on this promotion.  Sorry boys but this is pure crap.  Can't tell you how disappointed I am.  I have a 970 but can only upgrade to a 2080, 2070 or 2060 with only a $75 trade-in.  They're just dumping their inventory for models slated for the new Super cards.  So no huge discounts, no great deals just another bend over moment.  I'm going to sell my 970 when the Super models come out and buy a 2080 TI or the 2080 Super.

Only $150 for my card? I was expecting closer to $300. Hard pass. All of this hype for nothing except what amount to essentially peanuts.

Considering most of your guys card are out of warranty, getting anything for from the manufacturer is fair. I don't see other companies offering nothing but a "sorry, beat it" for your warranty expired 700 or 900 series. 
 
lol @ complaints about sending it in. Thats how a Step Up works too. 
 
 

Speak for your own self. I bought the 10 year extended warranty for my card at launch and still have 6 years minus a few weeks left on my warranty.

Maybe read? I said warranty expired.

FWIW, the 2080 FTW3 Ultra Gaming would be a $275 discount for you with this offer... the prices aren't retail, they're actually already cut pretty decently. I don't see the Super cards pushing the top tier 2080 down to $625.
 
Literally the only reason I think I'm going to skip this is because of the hassle of getting my roommates to return the video card. I have agoraphobia so the idea of me going to the UPS Store to ship this thing back is an incredibly unpleasant thought. I have to decide if the panic attack is worth the $300 savings off MSRP (and about $225 off the lowest price I saw online) after the $100 780 Ti credit.

good plan 75 credit after what ever it cost you to ship it to them with the impending price drop of cards with super coming is not really a discount at all. as after super comes out im sure old models prices will drop quite a bit

Does the upgrade price include the trade in value or is it subtracted from the upgrade price?


It is subtracted after you put it in your basket.  If the card is listed on sale at 699.99 and you get a $100 for your trade in.  Your price would be 599.99 plus tax.

I see everybody know the math. If you have a 770 and 970 and want to spend $1000 or more for new 2070s, then EVGA will gladly give you $125 in credits IF you send in the old cards.
 
By the way, I never rec'd my payout from the class action on the 970.

So how does this work? Am I responsible for shipping the old card back to EVGA or do they send me a shipping label?

Not saying the trade in is worth it, but you can have it picked up at your house.  If you have a box that works great, otherwise you can order a box online, then call in a carrier pickup at your house.  You can even leave it on your door step (assuming you trust your neighborhood) so you don't have to even talk to the carrier.  I do it all the time.  Never been down to the FedEx/UPS store yet.

Yeah I actually still have the original box and anti static bag, don’t have the packing to protect it though per the shipping instructions.

I think I might just wait because if I’m going to build a new machine, I want to go flagship since I tend to upgrade every 5 to 6 years (still running my Z87 Maximus VI Formula build - only thing I have upgraded was my 4770K to 4790K otherwise its the exact same machine I built in 2014).

You pay shipping. And insurance if you want to be safe.

That's not entirely accurate. You want to keep in mind that the new RTX card you would be upgrading to is discounted as well as getting the credit for the old card. So, lets say you want to upgrade to a RTX 2070 XC Gaming from your GTX 970. The RTX 2070 XC Gaming has an MSRP of $579.99 but you can purchase it for $469.99 through the upgrade program AND you also get the credit from your old card towards the new card. Add in the $75 discount you would get for the 970, and that's a combined discount of $185 off the cost for a brand new card.

Re: EVGA 20th Anniversary Upgrade Special! 2019/06/26 16:47:11 (permalink)
Well, sort of disappointed.  I have two Titan X Maxwell cards.  No deal for me I suppose.  Guess I made a mistake buying a top tier card lol
 
No, not because of this anniversary event because they can choose whatever cards they want to give discounts to ...  but also Nvidia themselves gave me the big middle finger by not bringing the FreeSync compatibility to Maxwell just because they don't feel like it, and I have a 144 Hz freesync on my desk that was a gift to upgrade from a 60 Hz panel.
 
Should've kept those 560 Ti for another year or two and got a couple 1080Ti for my PCs.  Probably a better idea to wait for Navi product stack to expand and affect the market a bit more, or a gen2 Navi to release; but I tried a Vega recently and it crashed on the games I played no matter what drivers I used and even used the wattman 'power saver' underclocked setting, it went back, as I was going to use it to build my other kid our 5th PC in the house.
 
Guess I should just work harder and throw more money at the companies lol  It's all in good fun, just thought I might've been able to get a 2060 pretty cheap with this event, but good wishes to anyone this greatly benefits and thanks to EVGA for doing it (as you can see, if you were trading in a 980 Ti, you could pick up a 2070 XC Gaming for $320, which is an amazing deal (that is Vega 56/1660 Ti pricing)!  I also like that they have the KingPin Halo product and support that whole extreme overclocking scene, and I'm assuming that is part of the inspiration for the extra sensors the cards have now as well. My next card, whenever it happens will most likely be between a higher tier EVGA card or a RoG Strix card as they are both pretty consistent performers on reviewers channels.
 
 
I will say though, what is rough/sucks about it is ...  you have to ship your card and wait for it to get there, then they ship the new card to you.  You need to plan for your system to be down for a week plus unless you pay an exorbitant amount for shipping, then you still can't control how fast the new card is shipped to you!  I can't see them really doing it any other way though.

Some might not think about it but you do get a 3 Year Warranty to go with it.
Most likely not able to use the Step-Up Program on the Trade in but still a new 3 Year Warranty and a new card.

Seems like a rookie move on screwing up the details on financing. How do you screw up 12 and 3. Whoever made that mistake should be ashamed. Please make sure that person has nothing to do with quality control of products
 
Other then that EVGA my hats off to you for looking out for your customers. Not only is it the best trade in program i have seen for GPU's (oh thats right the only one) (trade in is ALWAYS less then selling outright in all business)
 
Ignoring that all 20 series GPU's are overpriced thanks to NVIDIA ..
 
the discounted prices are very nice compared to retail. Wish i still had my 970 to trade in would love a RTX 2080  FTW3 with hydro-copper for $760 (that was the retail on MY 1080 classified with no waterblock)
Plus they are offering huge discounts on some great power supply's with this offer

Making way for the upgraded memory, lower tier cards I see, What a disappointment. This is the first product cycle in years that I have not upgraded to a top tier card right away, but those prices on the 2080 Ti are just ridiculous still.

As the financing is done through a 3rd party, it might not be their decision to make. Maybe Affirm decided to axe that idea or maybe EVGA thought customers would not pay it off leading to defaults through the processor which is a good way to get your business account suspended.

I understand your point on the credit terms but to put it in black and white and send it to customers and then change it less then 24 hours later is BS. Someone dropped ball period! all of the details should of been ironed out before it was put in writing to the customer's. If you or me put something in writing we would be held accountable. It's really sad that companies are held to lesser standard then an individual. Some states might even have a law against such business practice.

As these are agreements with the companies themselves, 3 months no interest to pay off a card at a good price point when the majority can buy outright is better than nothing. Before when using affirm, there was no non-interest options on stuff bought on EVGA.

Nice, I have three 7 series cards and one 9 series card that qualifies. Just submitted one of the 7 series to upgrade so when it gets here I will place it in my sons computer and pull the 9 series out and submit that for upgrade so I can upgrade my computer. Works out well for those of us with older cards that need some upgrades. Thanks EVGA, this is why I dont buy GPU,motherboards and power supplies from any other company.

Re: EVGA 20th Anniversary Upgrade Special! 2019/07/04 20:54:49 (permalink)
some questions:
 
1. If I purchase a card through this program and don't like the card what are my options? Can I upgrade or change to another model?
2. Is there an option for crosshipping so I'm not GPU-less for 2 weeks?
3. Am I responsible to pay shipping costs to send in my old card?
 
Thanks

some questions:
 
1. If I purchase a card through this program and don't like the card what are my options? Can I upgrade or change to another model? All upgrades are final and cannot be returned. Unfortunately, you are not able to change to a different model once the upgrade has been processed.
2. Is there an option for crosshipping so I'm not GPU-less for 2 weeks? Unfortunately, cross-shipping is not an option for the upgrade program.
3. Am I responsible to pay shipping costs to send in my old card? Yes, you would be responsible for shipping to us.
 
Thanks

Well I'm a embarrassed to say it, but I think I've made the wrong decision and feel a bit down.  I normally purchase cards in the $350 dollar range, but when EVGA offered for me to send in my current 970 card and to receive a special price on the an RTX 2000 series card, I made the decision to maximize the value by purchasing the RTX 2800 Ultimate Hybrid Gaming thinking that I was getting a unique deal. I sent in my card for a 75$ credit and paid the $25 dollars in shipping, and then paid the difference for the card.  In the two days after I paid, and before my 970 card had arrived or my new card was even shipped out from EVGA, the price on the exact same card that I purchased has dropped to the same price I paid under this special deal.  
 
Things like GPUs always lose value with time, but I haven't even received my new card yet, and you can now get it for the same deal without sending in your 970, that is the biggest let down for me right now.
 
So anyway if there is anything I can suggest to those in the future, it's probably not worth it to go through with a deal like this if they happen again.  I think with hindsight I should have waited for a 2080 Super in order to not have such a sudden drop in value.
