Says out of stock, and no price listed.

I know what a promo code is, but what are these "rebates" Americans seem to get on some items?

SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Newegg.com
Try the Amazon link Amazon.com: Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 1TB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive MZ-7TE1T0BW: Computers & Accessories

As far as I'm concerned a rebate is a gimmick. They offer $ off what you pay, if you apply and send in the UPC code and the receipt and the form, sometimes. Then they say you didn't send the necessary items or didn't get it in time to qualify. Sometimes, you do get it, 6 months later. I never buy anything based on a rebate.

Not sure what a upc code is, but I get the drift.

Marketing tool designed to get people to buy, in the end only a few actually qualify for the rebate by jumping through the right hoops at the right time. They think it is their own fault for missing the hoops, and fall for it again. Might be a few who know how it works and stay on top of it.

I bought a lot of products with rebates and never had any problems getting my money. But I have a wife who is expert in filling out the paperwork. I myself would have certainly failed.

I also never had any problems with Newegg. But I know that some members had really bad experiences with the company. I only noticed that there seem to be more complaints about them in recent times than in previous years.

I understand that Newegg plans to start business in Europe (UK) where they will compete with companies like Alternate. I dealt a couple of times with the German branch of Alternate and compared to them, Newegg is wonderful. Alternate did not want to refund a defective product because I had opened the package (how else could I have found out whether it works). I ended up getting 70% of my money back (after threats from my lawyer).

I too have always gotten my rebates. But it's a pain for a few bucks. A Guy

This is what the whole system is built on. I understand that 80% of the people do not claim their MIRs - probably for the same reason.
