Actually it's still in place so the discount still applies. The discontinuation is on the EVGA bucks rewards from the code being used. Either way still cool for the additional discount.
I know it is still in place. I just said that You aren't getting any benefits from it is all. As a customer you still get the benefits though yes.
Anyone can now use the associate code for a discount. While I haven't tried it myself my understanding is I could put in my own code and get the discount off of it. I know for sure I could use another members code and get a discount. While EVGA bucks might not exist the Associates program is still a good way to save money.
