Bitcoins are used mostly by drug dealers hires guns and other illicit individuals for a lot of illegal activities due to it ease at laundering money and covering the paper trails.
Newegg should instead of offering these bitcoins promos offer these same promos at same prices but use PayPal instead.
There a reason the United States don't have a bit coin exchange of it own established

Thanks AznDragon89.

 

This is a great deal, but as much as I want one I'm not sure I can justify getting a PS4 given my current backlog.

Also, I went through to checkout just for kicks and I can't seem to get free shipping, cheapest is the $6.99 option. Am I missing something?

Darn I want to get in on this deal soo bad but I can't get myself to throw my money into a pot hoping that BTC comes out on the other end. 

As a consumer what would really boost my confidence is if there was a retail partner/ financial intermediary a la paypal for BTC.

 

Essentially what I'm saying I'd want to pay via USD to the Financial Intermediary who will then give Newegg the Bitcoin immediately allowing me the purchase goods.

 

....and it was just a dream.

Nice to see someone actually explain how the insane legwork makes this a non-deal instead of just going in for the lazy mockery.

Hey, my comment is not lazy. The zombie apocalypse comment comes from being well-informed.

Everybody knows that dogecoin is the currency of the zombie post-apocalypse.

I don't see free shipping on this product either.  I believe that may have been for just the 1 day.

For those not wanting to do Bitcoin there is always the 10% off option using VCO promo code and Visa Checkout.

Not really 10% off since it's locked to $20 max.
