    If you purchased a SanDisk, Lexar Media, PNY Electronics, Fujifilm, or Kodak flash memory device in the USA between February 1, 2000 and February 7, 2006 for personal use, you can receive 5% of the price back or 10% off a new flash memory device.

    It applies to flash memory cards, CompactFlash cards, SmartMedia cards, MultiMedia cards, SecureDigital (SD) cards, xD-picture cards, Memory Sticks, USB memory, USB drives, thumb drives, JumpDrives, and digital cameras with integrated flash memory.

    This is the result of a class action suit that claimed these companies misled buyers about device capacities.

    Claim forms and other details can be found here.

    Claim deadline: November 16, 2006.

    I have the packaging for my 1 GB SD card and the reciept for my 2 GB USB flash drive. So, what are the chances of the SD card?

    Edit: I cut my proof of purchase for my SD card for a rebate. *sob*

    Hopefully this suit will set a precident so that all memory manufacturers will have to actually give you the advertized space on drives, not this 100gb's is really 92gb's crap.

    On second thought, I don't think $3 is worth the effort.

    Yay, I got my 1GB USB flash drive for $70 or so...it would be nice to get a little cash back, especially since after I bought mine the prices dropped :p.

    Thanks Doctor Q! :D

    Wait, is it the ORIGINAL price? Or the price after rebates, etc. ?

    It's the "this is totally not worth it" price. :)

    In my reading, it's 5% of the purchase price, so you apparently don't have to account for rebates.

    You need a copy of your purchase receipt or other proof of purchase.
