    Hi,

    I sent my rebate form off about two weeks ago. How long do you think it'd take until I get the moonay back?

    I'm paying my dad back for the Macbook and he said that as I've been good with the paying back, I can use the money from the rebate (£160) to buy an iPod nano 8GB.

    Thanks.

    Hi!

    I think it takes about 3 weeks.
    It shouldn't be too long then!

    Also, how did you manage to get £160 off. I thought the most you could get off was £100????


    Dan :)

    I'd guess that he's getting 100 for the nano, and 60 for a printer.

    Oh.. I thought it was only allowed 1 rebate per house per transaction etc. or something!

    Makes sense!

    Silly me!

    Nah, one of each. Although the original idea was to order two macbooks and two printers (I have two Uni sisters :cool: ) and have them sent to my house, and the agent had no problem with that. But we decided to get one for the time being.

    So you got yours in 3 weeks?

    Where do you live if you don't mind me asking?

    Checked the form T&C... damn... 8 weeks from when they receive it!

    I could handle the idea of a rebate as opposed to a straight discount, but it's going to take ages.


    Anyone received anything yet?
