What's wrong with my way of spending my rebate cards?  Are you just spamming?

Uhh... go back and read what you wrote in the portion I quoted and then read my response again.

The rebate cards have to be converted to Egg gift cards and apply them to the purchase.

Yeah.  You don't have to go that route dude.  At all.

Like I said if you're not familiar with the method of cashing out Rebate Cards for their full cash value, you're missing the boat.  Requiring yourself to make gift card purchases using those Rebate Cards is a backasswards philosophy.  

Rebates Cards = Cash.  Simple as that.  I could introduce you to the wonderful thing that is manufactured spending today too, but let's not shatter your fragile little world just yet.   Grin

I'm happy with the CX500.  None of them conk out on me yet and like I said, I get them for cheap (my last 2 PSUs was for free actually and I have enough rebates to get the next one for free again).  So what's the problem, dude?

Not free.  That's the issue.  You're treating the Rebate Card as some sort of free money or coupon.  It isn't.  

You paid into a purchase to get it. You're then treating it like a free $20 bill you found on the street when you apply it to your next purchase.  See the error in that logic?  You're claiming a "low price" on the front end AND the next purchase using the same $20.  

Did you even click the link in my signature?  I'd venture to guess I spend more at Newegg in a month than you're probably spending there all year, and I'm doing upwards of $20,000 in rebates redemptions a year.  Not trying to brag or anything there.  Even my level of spending is stil considered small potatoes.  But I do kind of have a clue what I'm talking about dude.

The best deals out there per A/watt are generally those $10 or less per unit server power supplies.  A few people mentioned them in this thread.  They're server grade hardware designed to run 24/7 at high efficiency not Bronze like the CX500.  Multiple units can also be wired up to do load balancing across many mining end-points.  

There's nothing wrong with your route for a small time operation of a couple of S1's although the loss on efficiency does mean more in terms of an electricity bill.  But there are better and more cost effective options out there.

So if trying to educate people on how to purchase low cost hardware is spamming then yeah count me guilty.

Dude, buy a clue.  I'm not interested in your petty schemes.  You get that?  Why are you forcing the issue?  The way I spend my money/rebates is none of your goddamn business.  You're not my mother.  Stop spamming.

Dude, I already shattered your petty fragile world, hence your drawn out, discombobulated and desperate reply to cover your tracks after being exposed.

Well, as always, I tried to be helpful.  I'm here to help others.  And you're here... to?  I posted information to help others.  Information on solutions that I certainly didn't come up with, but that are vastly superior to your "free" (will they be paying you next purchase, if you use 3x rebate cards?  Cheesy ) power supplies.  Not just initial cost-wise, but operation-wise with respect to energy costs.  In addition, I posted information via the link to regularly updated table where low-cost but high value mining-hardware friendly supplies can be purchased from major vendors.

Isn't that what this thread is for?  Seems so.  How is that spam?  How is that "covering [my] tracks after being exposed"?  Exposed as ...what?  Helpful?   Grin

I'm gaining absolutely bupkis from any of this.  It's part of what makes this a community - the free sharing of information.

By all means continue to bask in your own ignorance unfettered from this point henceforth.   Smiley

Can't say I didn't try.  The horse was appropriately led to the water.  It died of thirst of its own volition.

TLDR.

It's more like you're asserting your own ego to feel good about yourself in the guise of being helpful but when somebody steals your thunder, you get extremely defensive.  Just let it go, man.  As Dogie stated on his thread, you're taking this bit too seriously.  You don't get out much it seems.

If you have something to contribute, then by all means post it and leave at that and let the readers decide if they want to use the information or not.  That's what I did with my original post and that's what I usually do.  Nothing more, nothing less.  You, on the other hand, shoves it down our collective throats.  So go, get a hooker...or something...to get you to chill out a bit.

I need to get out more?  From the user that posted -

Dude, buy a clue.

Stop spamming.

All of those are ad hominem.  And on the socialization level of a toddler.

I've replied with facts and information.  You've replied with petty insults and a fair amount of ignorance.  Anytime I offer a reply of substance, you go the "TL;DR" (or TI;DR) route.  I won't apologize for taking time to reply or offer information.  I've done so in many threads, with no angle of any kind of personal gain or profit.

I have no issue with you doing as you please.  You dismissed the information presented simply because you didn't like it, agree with it, or understand it. Which is fine.  But don't offer accusations or aspersions against the presenter just because you don't care for the information.  As you say, let others judge it.  You've offered your opinion on it.    I'm not forcing anyone here to be anything except perhaps educated.  What they do and choose beyond that is there own decision to make.

I do find it hilarious you cite dogie's thread - a thread where he actually WAS clandestine about his purpose - and accuse me of doing the same.  Which I am clearly not.  I've left all the information open source, if you will, in that regard specifically for that reason.  I'm not looking for profit or gain in any of this, dude.  I'm here to help others.

For the record I "get out" plenty.  

My wife and kids would appreciate me at home more but I travel a lot for business, so it's a constant balance.  

Buy hey, you've avoided all the other facts, so please feel free to ignore those as well?  

Enjoy!  I'm actually wrapping things up here at the homefront for tonight.
