Slight discount at Amazon

For those people looking for a slight (and I mean SLIGHT) savings, I see Amazon now has the newest Mac Mini's for $11.50 off. I know, whoop-di-do, but hey, every cent counts. I am also looking at getting the Dell 24" U2412M monitor which just dropped $20 at Amazon as well. Hoping for slightly better prices tomorrow before I finally purchase.

don't forget amazon is letting you return the mini as late as jan 31st 2013. that is a really good return policy.

True - Amazon has the best CSR's - heard mixed reviews about MacMall.

That's why I posted the "deal" here. I have been a loyal Amazon customer for years and they have always given great customer service. I'd rather pay them a few bucks more then going with an unknown (to me) MacMall.

Amazon now dropped their price to meet Macmalls at a whopping $25 off. Still glad I waited, this gives me no reason to buy elsewhere.

Yea I noticed it today and decided to get it from Amazon. $25 and no tax to Wisconsin while MacMall charges tax for Wisconsin so it was the best deal to be had. I chose the free shipping charge option too and should have it by the end of next week. I wasn't sure if I should get it now or wait for another year and see if the Haswell chipset would be in it but a bird in the hand they say.

I assume you had to pay sales tax? For me no sales tax was another reason to go with Amazon. I notice the price is back up to only being $11 off list price now.

I am in CA we started getting sales tax on Amazon purchases Sept 15 of this year. No reason for me to buy from them unless its a great deal from warehouse deals.

I picked up 16gb of corsair vengeance ram for 62 bucks shipped from Amazon though.

I actually got double price match so 51 dollars off cause of a technicality on the Mac Mini. Lucky me!
