If you happened to have bought a GeForce GTX 280 card when it
released for US $649, you'd probably be extremely disgruntled, with
people paying as low as $499 for the same thing now, and just weeks
after release. Such changes in the tech-industry even cause major
legal trouble for card vendors when such customers sue them in this
regard. Ironically, the role of NVIDIA is limited to dictating prices, the
partners have to bear the brunt of such awkward situations. XFX is the
first partner to have announced a cash-back scheme for people who
purchased their GTX 200 series products at their old (high) prices.

Says XFX: "Being the first to do anything is a rewarding experience.
And now, if you were one of the first to purchase one of our XFX
GeForce GTX 280 or GeForce GTX 260 graphics cards, thereā€™s another
potential reward in your futureā€”cold hard cash.

Sudden changes in the market have caused the price for the XFX
GeForce GTX 280 and the XFX GeForce GTX 260 to drop. As a result,
we want to thank you for your continued loyalty and for believing in
the XFX brand. And, to show our commitment to you, we are issuing
up to $120 CASH BACK to customers who purchased one of these
cards between June 16, 2008 and July 11, 2008
. The actual amount of
cash back will be determined based on the model purchased, as well as
the date and price of the purchase."

The efforts of XFX at this point are commendable, though as
customers of non-XFX GeForce GTX 200 series cards, you must expect
your card vendor to put up such a scheme.

Thats nice of them.
 
Though I see it as customer greed. They were willing to pay 700 bucks when they came out. Yet a few weeks later that 700 they spent was somehow too much. I just dont like it when we hear everything about corporate greed, yet nothing about consumer greed.
