GreenSlugYeah it is ridiculous.. I mean I appreciate the service, but a year for a step up is absolutely atrocious.. But the good thing is they are a great company and I swear by their graphic cards and will still remain to do so though.
ryanw126My Step 1 was 10/19, so I should be getting the Step 2 email sometime in the next week or two (hopefully). I'll say this... After waiting in a queue for going on 10+ months, I will never be using EVGA's Step-Up program again. At this point, I've seen multiple friends find MSRP 3080's at retailers in the last 3-ish months without even trying that hard. Being locked into the queue path -- and getting auto-downgraded to an LHR model in the midst of it -- has turned me completely off to this process for the future. I'll try my hand at the open market next time.
hyperbolicspaceI feel i got tricked into buying a GPU paying an officially approved EVGA scalping retailer well above MSRP under the impression i would get credit for full amount i paid and the step up cost was only MSRP. turns out i was officially scalped then EVGA says keep waiting in line and maybe one day you can be so lucky to pay full upgrade cost + full amount tax + shipping... but i cant have the card i was promised at first to bait me into the deal.. nope they had to switch on me, so i must step down and i get a trash LHR reference model? Not worth it at all. Actually its a total ripoff they should rename the STEP UP to the BAIT AND SWITCH program.
KevinDontDanceI certainly laughed at it.

HypodermicsI'm jealous of all of you. I don't even have a lower level card to stepup.
