    Do you know if we pay for everything up front then get a rebate back? I'm wondering because that either means you need to pay the tax for an iPod and the extra $100 for the Mac before the savings.
    So how exactly does it work?

    If you are in the U.S, you pay for everything upfront minus the actual discount on the computer your getting. So, if you are getting the iPod + Printer, you play an extra $200 "this is assuming you are getting the basic one" + $100 for printer + the tax on the two items + computer + whatever else when you check out.

    When you get apply for rebate, you get only $300 back, no tax.

    ^ Pretty much that.
    The $100 discount on the mac is already taken off.
    You do however need to pay the price of the iPod upfront. So here in NYC The $200 iPod touch with tax is $216.
    If you want the "free" printer as well that's $100. With tax $108.

    That totals to $324. The rebate only gives you the money back for the "face value" of the products. Which is $300. In turn you end up paying $24 for a printer and an iPod which really isn't that bad at all.
