    Man, I wish I needed some cd-r's. How's 100 Spin-X, 700 mb/80 minutes for $29.99,minus $14.00 mail-in rebate,minus $10.00 instant savings = $5.99

    or

    NSW 2003- Professional Edition - $99.99 minus $30.00 upgrade mail-in rebate, minus $50.00 mail-in rebate =$19.99

    and there are a lot more sale offers where these came from on anything from paper to monitors, to hdd's etc. Only on in stock items at Office Depot!

    <One wonders how they can give these away at these prices - one also wonders how many of each are in stock!>:confused:

    DamnYank, thanks for the offer, I need to get those. :) I just might too..
     
  6. well it's all business, u actually pay $15 upfront, then u send in a rebate that takes u couple days right? then it take that mail two days maybe to get to them, then they wait some time, then they send u you money back.

    that takes .... umm actually it take about a month, the company during that time can make a lot more on the money they gona send u back, so u get your $14 back and at that time they already made much more. now multiply that by number of people who did that and actually sent rebate in. company does get a lot of money anyhow

    damnyank , WOW!! Office Max closed in your area!!
    In California they are moving the stores to bigger
    square foot ones to handle the shoppers needs better.

    On mail in rebates.....keep copies of your receipts and
    a copy of the filled out rebate form. Many places like
    to ignore them and never give you the rebate check.

    It took me almost two months to get mine from
    Circuit City and the promise date was "two weeks".

    The favorite excuse is:


    Then when you resend it they say it is past
    the rebate mail in time frame. :mad:
     
  8. well i and my friends actually got the money back. never had any problems :)

    I guess I have been lucky - I have gotten money back from Sam's three or four different times, got $150 rebate on my HP Pavilion and monitor, got $20 and $30 rebates from Symantec for upgrades - and am currently waiting (got about three weeks left) on a rebate from Sears!

    Knock on wood - I don't ever remember send one in and not getting the rebate!:p
