Hi EVGA Members,
 
The EVGA Bucks program was introduced exactly 19 years ago and has awarded millions of EVGA Bucks to thousands of members. This program was designed to incentivize the community to participate and support fellow EVGA forum members. EVGA has decided to sunset the program, but in a way that will allow members to select their preferred benefits, including cash conversion.  EVGA will no longer issue new EVGA Bucks as of June 13, 2022.
 
Between June 13 and September 13, 2022, EVGA members may spend their EVGA Bucks on the EVGA webstore, convert their EVGA Bucks into cash, or donate their EVGA Bucks to be converted into cash and given to an EVGA-approved charity.
 
We thank you for your participation in the EVGA Bucks program and encourage you to visit https://www.evga.com/articles/01568/evga-bucks-for-cash/ to learn more about this promotion.
 
Thank you,
EVGA

Wow. That is a shock. So I'm assuming the associate program is ending too (Edit: yup).

Agreed. Guessing this confirms 40-series launch no sooner than Sept. 14th?

Nothing, really, beyond there being one fewer means to increase your EVGA score.  The lifetime EVGA Bucks earned is permanently added to your score, and using your EVGA Bucks or having no current EVGA Bucks will not change that.

amusing you can use paypal you could cash out then give to a charity of your pick?


Id like to hear back about the folks that can't use PayPal. I don't want to give the bucks away, don't plan to buy anything and I can't use paypal so I'm just to lose them?
 
EDIT:
I sent support an email asking what can be done, I sure given how paypal is that I'm not the only one here that can't use them.

TBH EVGA is no longer the EVGA of the past. More and more every day they're becoming anther run of the mill GPU seller and there is not much to set them aside anymore.

Things are changing — certainly. But that is true across the tech landscape. EVGA still does regular twitch streams, site scavenger hunts, etc. etc. 
 
I feel the loss of the Associate program, but its impending departure to the dustbin of history is not cause for me to declare my “loyalty dead” or a charitable “option“ to be asinine. Just seems unnecessarily harsh and reactionary in response to this morning’s news…at least that is how this amphibian sees it.
 
It wouldn’t surprise me of the EVGA team comes up with some new community building programs over time…but who knows.….

Some of their product lines have been going down hill do. But to be fair that's the case across the board

I assume this will end up as taxable income? Will EVGA provide a 1099?

Yes, I confirmed with EVGA that for folks over a certain amount (I believe it is $600, but don’t quote me on this specific number), EVGA will require a 1099.

Thanks man! They should def make it very clear that it is taxable for people just so anyone with more than a little bit saved up for 40 series is prepared to maybe owe something come tax day instead of expecting a return. Nothing sucks more than an unexpected tax bill.
