[Reminder - The entire EVGA Bucks program concludes on 9/13 at 5pm PT.  Please make your final choices as soon as possible]
 
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?

What does this mean for the Queue 3.0 system that used EVGA bucks in its score calculation?

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.

TBH EVGA is no longer the EVGA of the past. More and more every day they're becoming anther run if 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.….

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.

One thing to keep in mind is that the Step Up program looks at price paid in cash after discounts are taken off not the MSRP. So if you bought a graphics card and saved $50 using EVGA bucks the end result is having to pay the $50 in cash when/if the 4000 series card comes out within the 90 days. I want to make sure people are aware since it could change the thoughts people make in using them. I have seen people talk about buying a GPU with their bucks in hopes of a step up but it's a bad idea.

Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

What will happen to any EVGA bucks between now and September the 13th? If I were to say cash out now, then earn more EVGA after that, what would happen to them? I'm also wondering when all means of earning EVGA bucks will be halted as well, if it's the same September 13th date, or earlier.

That was today. You can't earn any more. The pending ones will be given to you within 6-10 days, but you won't earn any more. You just have until September 13th to spend them, cash out for half their value, or donate them to charity.

From the email this morning
  • Any pending rewards for purchases made with your Associates code prior to June 13th, 2022 will be approved and added to your balance within 7-10 business days.
  • Your Associates code will still provide discounts for purchases at EVGA.com.
