    Does Discover Card offer one year extra warranty like AMEX does?

    J&R doesn't collect tax in CA. Where did you get that idea?

    What are the terms of that newegg coupon code? Is it 15% off one item? Entire purchase? The memory only?

    I wonder if I could use that coupon on an SSD, or monitor.

    that code was for ram and most likely it will end soon or has ended.

    this is nice I got the 5% discount and an extra years warranty.

    I think I get 5% plus 5% which would be better. still very nice.

    Discover's Q4 promotion is 5% off department stores and online retailers. It's been confirmed to stack with retailers that always have a fixed discount from ShopDiscover.

    You have to sign up for it..

    I signed up and i linked from discover to jr.com so I may have received 10% off. My problem is I spent a lot on line with the card so I may have only received the extra 5% of the first 550 or so. still that would be 27.50 extra. along with the other 5% 39 so that is 66.50 off not 79.40.

    still 799 minus 5 = 794 minus 66.50 is $727.50 plus 42 for the 8gb ram is 769.50. and one of the other posters linked that the warranty was doubled.

    so 769.50 with a 2 year warranty and 8gb ram is nice.

    Is that G.SKILL 16gb kit better RAM than buying a Crucial 16gb kit from their site?

    I'm curious about this as well. I'll be buying RAM in the next week or two, having just got the mid-range new mac mini.

    The promo code for Newegg has already expired. I'm thinking unless I find another deal for less than $75, I might as well go with the Crucial for $81. (I've been buying Crucial RAM to upgrade my last 2 Macs and they've worked well).

    (I also saw that Newegg has a 16GB kit for $69.99 that has a higher latency, but the reviews are mediocre. I'm thinking of staying away from that particular model).

    I'm using Gskill in my 2011 Mac Mini and ordered more Gskill for the 2012 Mini. I have been using Gskill in my computers for years without a problem.
