CEA Tech Enthusiast Membership for Individuals

This is coming from our friends at the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and we thought our readers would be interested.  I just finished signing up myself.  If you do sign up let us know in the comments and maybe we can plan for a Missing Remote meet-up at CES next year 🙂

For the first time ever, individuals can now join the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, owner and producer of the International CES. CEA’s Tech Enthusiast membership, designed exclusively for early adopters and fervent supporters of consumer technology, gives you access to CEA and offers a members-only website with:

  • Insider information on the latest technology trends
  • Consumer electronic product giveaways
  • Access to a community of like-minded technophiles
  • Discounts from technology companies

As a Missing Remote reader you qualify to receive the CEA TE Membership at a discounted rate of $29 (valued at $49). To learn more or join today, visit CEAtechenthusiast.com and enter promo code “INSIDER” at the checkout to get the discount.

  • Michael, maybe I’m the only

    Michael, maybe I’m the only one wondering why I would want to spend $29/year on this.  The list of “benefits” just don’t seem worth it to me.  Am I just not understanding the value?

    Bullet #1 seems like something a “fanboy” would love, but I don’t see a real benefit to it.  I can wait until somebody leaks the info or it’s announced.

    #2 sounds nice, but paying $29 to possibly win something doesn’t sound all that appealing.

    #3…  I already have that right here at Missing Remote!  LOL!

    #4 also sounds nice, but, without any idea of whether the discounts are actually worth it, I’m not seeing the value.

    I’m actually hoping it’s simply a matter of me not “getting it” and you can explain it to me.  😀

    Everyone will put a different value to the “benefits”.  For me I looked through the discounts and between 2 purchases that I plan on making I’ll save ~$45 so it justified the cost right there.

    I’d like to purchase a new bedroom TV this year as well, if I do the Newegg discount would save me ~$140 since I think I’ll purchase a Samsung LED.

    I think the real benefit to the readers is being able to go to CES.

    I also love beta testing and if it gets me a few more opportunities I’ll be happy.

  • I joined as a gift from my

    I joined as a gift from my wife for Christmas. She saw it and thought it would be great for me. I have been on the forums and looked at some of the benefits. They keep getting better.

    I like the fact that you do get to go to CES with them as well. I have already booked my trip before even signing up for this but it is an added Benefit.

    I have already sent my applications to the companies offing Beta Testing because that is always fun.

    I agree with Michael Welter, 

    Everyone will put a different value to the “benefits”.
