If you weren’t one of the ones that felt the need to preorder the Mac mini the second it was announced, you are in luck if you were thinking of buying one with some Apple customized features.

Now, yesterday they had also bumped up the speed of the Superdrive from 4x to 8x - but when I looked again today, it was back to 4x. Why must you toy with us, Apple? Why?

Circuit City is up next.
First up, Best Buy.
For example, if you sign up at DVRs4Free.com you are able to earn yourself a free TiVo Series 2 or ReplayTV. If you don't want either of those, then you can opt to get a $275 USD Paypal payment or a Visa gift card in the same amount. You can do the same at Cameras4Free.com, and choose a $325 cash prize instead of a digital camera. It is safe to assume that any future OfferCentric sites will also offer cash payments as well, just in time for the holidays. Sign up using one of the links above, and we will add your referal link to this story.
Edit: Not to be outdone, it looks like PrizeCube is doing the same thing. In fact, if you sign up for a free portable video player you can get a $500 gift card instead.
