I'm looking for someone who is close to a Microcenter computer and electronics store in the USA to do me a favour.

I'm in Canada and doing some online Christmas shopping for a computer upgrade for my son and came across this good deal online:

http://www.microcenter.com/product/413248/Core_i7_4770K_35GH...#

Problem is you have to go to the store itself and the deal isn't available online.

I need an honest BGG member here (preferably with some trading feedback or reference from somewhere) to pick it for me at the store.

I'll send you the money by Paypal before you go to buy the item. I just need someone who is willing to go and pick it up... hopefully someone who wouldn't have to go out of their way too far obviously and maybe is thinking about going there anyway would be ideal.

Maybe a bit of an odd request... but it's a great community here and I've had nothing but good experiences here with any dealings so hopefully someone can help me out.

I have positive feedback here on BGG... on EBay and on another auction site in NZ where I used to live (1000+ positive feedbacks).

Thanks in advance to anyone that might want to help me out with this.

I know my son would really appreciate this as he's basically plugging away with a 6+ year old system currently and this would obviously be part of a massive upgrade for him.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

No problem... I actually appreciate that you would have done it if you were still there. thumbsup

I can offer the incentive of some geekgold for a BGG member who wouldn't mind helping me out as a token of my appreciation as well. Just tell me the amount you'd like.

These are not the droids you're looking for. You can go about your business.

I am relatively close to the Detroit store and can probably rely on a few of my subscribed friends to tell you I'm honest.

I also have pretty good feedback here and on ebay where I'm mib668.

Is there a speed element to this request? I might not be able to get out that way for a couple of days.

The site shows 10+ in stock in Madison Heights.

Thank you both for offering to help.

BGG is a fantastic community when it comes to helping out each other with things like this. I'd certainly trust you both.

Before I saw your messages I received an offer from another BGG member to help and he's in the process of picking up the part for me.

Thanks you both so much for offering... I really appreciate that you both are willing to go out of your way and help.

Where I am it's extremely rural and no computer deals like this ever come up locally. I have family in NZ and the plan is to eventually ship this back to NZ for Christmas for my son so this helps out a lot (prices are much higher over there as well).

It's nice to have a buddy network to be able to do these types of things occasionally.

I'd do the same if there was something in my area someone wanted (not likely unless someone wants a big box of snow).
