    Hey:
    I'm just wondering if anyone knows whether Amazon has had back to back rebates on the macs. I was going to order a macpro because of the rebate, but my effing credit card company temporarily put my credit 'on hold' . So, I'm wondering what the chances are of there being another rebate after the 16th (my card will be off hold on the 17th!!!).

    Cheers

    Amazon's discounts/rebates come pretty regularly, so even if there isn't one on the 16th itself, I'd still wait - surely it wouldn't be much longer before the rebate was back.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Like xfiftyfour said, if there isn't one right away, there will most likely be one in the near future. I actually don't remember looking at an Apple computer on Amazon that didn't have a rebate.

    That's good to know; thanks for getting back to me. Although if they don't have a rebate offer fairly soon, I s'pose I'll just buy a refurb from Apple. Being without a a proper work machine is not fun....

    the rebates are actually rolling. when one ends, another will start. so i'm sure you'll be able to get one on the 17th.

    You were absolutely right! I just ordered my macpro from amazon with yet another rebate - and amazing shipping. It'll be here friday for $1.99!:cool:

    As my money was clearing I was watching the Macpros go from 5 this morning to 1 left by around 4pm..then at around 6 the '1 left, order soon!" message changed to 'in stock'.. hopefully that means that a fresh 'batch' is shipping now (i.e. mine!).

    Anyway, I'm actually really relieved. Running dreamweaver, fireworks, illustrator, flash, etc in addition to firefox, mail, ical etc all at once while running a 24" monitor on a macbook is pushing my luck. Those fans got a workout! ... at least it's a mac and can handle it...
