apologies for being off topic.

Peace
The statistics say that more than 80% of the buyers never claim the mail in rebate. That's what they are counting on. And even when you turn it in, they may not process it for various reasons - although I never had a problem with MIRs.

I agree. I never buy solely based on getting the rebate. It's a shameful racket that should be banned!

Your exactly right Wolfgang, and this is why I call it a sham, and why companies won't give you the instant rebate. The get to have their cake, and eat it too.

Anyway I just wanted to make that statement, but there's still a lot of good sales to be had

Peace
