So it's a no go after all. It seems everyone was confused over this ad. Here is a post from Newegg explaining the issue.
Hello FATWALLET forum members,
We just wanted to clear up a misunderstanding about the promo code found in the latest issue of PCGamer.
The promo code that was advertised in PCGamer is intended for free shipping on select AMD processors. The promo code does not apply to any other items other than the ones in the advertisement. Please review the AD for specifics on which AMD cpuâ€™s qualify for this offer.
Thank you all for your attention to this matter and we apologize for the confusion. Please feel free to PM us if you have any further questions or concerns.
