    Hey All,

    I'm interested in buying myself a new iMac - MacMall seem to have a good offer with various rebates (laser printer for free after rebates). They also have BillMeLater for purchases over $500 which of course the iMac is.

    I emailed them asking them about the rebates & using BillMeLater on Monday, and got no response. So I called them today, and they said that BillMeLater can take too much time to go through and the rebates can't be validated in time - most of them must be post marked within 20 days of purchase.

    Personally, I'd still like to use BillMeLater and get 6 months interest free credit. It isn't that I can't afford it, but the ability to spread the payments out is a good thing (especially for "free") as I would be able to clear the balance before it was due.

    I was just wondering what people's experience was with MacMall's rebates and/or BillMeLater.

    Those rebates expire today, so any quick responses would be good. :)

    Thanks!

    I think the chances of me using MacMall have just shot down. In reading the fine print:

    Yup, BillMeLater blocks the $100 rebate. I'm rather annoyed the sales rep (Jo) chose not to tell me that, and just tried to push me to the credit card route.
