Default Maybe it doesn't pay to wait ( not talking about q6600 )

So a few good deals in Newegg have now ended:

The WD Raptor 30 dollar rebate is ending, the rebate states you have to have the invoice saying you ordered at least by July 23rd ( today ), but are invoices show the exact day you ordered or when the order is processed? ( most likely tomorrow which means I miss the dead line ).

The X-Fi XtremeGamer soundcard ( the cheapest X-Fi card without stripped down parts ) lost its 7 dollar discount today, someone said to wait for them to improve the deal...maybe it will drop lower in price one day? ( not blaiming anyone, I willingly choose to wait )

So I was thinking...maybe it doesn't pay to wait anymore

I agree. Dude, prices WILL go down over time. This is true for all electronics. The older ones will get downpriced and the newer ones take over.

hmm actually I juts found out whenever you order, you recieve the invoice later on but it will still have the exact date when you did order ( which means I can get in before the deadline ends and get the 30 dollar rebate for the WD raptor ) still thought...big decision...I mean the raptor still 90 dollars more then the seagate after rebate...
