    Most rebates iThink are honest. Never heard of this promo going bad if that helps. And I stalk these forums.

    Unlike so many other PC hardware companies, Apple's promotions and rebates are 100% legit.

    Legit


    I did the buy a mac for college and get a free ipod touch rebate.

    It took 30 days for them to actually look at the rebate, and then it took about 5 days for them to send the check out.


    Legit.

    And you get it a lot faster compared to other rebates.

    No issues with my rebate. Took a while, like 6 weeks, but it arrived.

    When I bought my iMac a year ago I went with a printer and later found out that apple was charging double the normal price. I thought this was fine because I was going to get my rebate. When I found out I had to cut bits of my computer box out to send with the rebate claim I was not happy about removing tags because of my resale value for the iMac, so I was trying to see if there were other ways and so anyway the time ran out, I was left with an overpriced mediocre printer and felt ripped off. However this was my fault not Apples! So I would trust Apple with it, just make sure to read all agreements and processes for rebate first, I made the mistake of not doing so!

    If you are in the USA and buy it from Apple.com it is all digital. It's SOOOO easy, basically I don't know why they just don't do it automatically considering how easy it is but I can't complain. You just log into your account and fill out a very short form and click enter. They have your purchase on file so there really is no question to wether you bought it.

    I don't believe this is the same in other countries though.

    Forgive me for bringing up an old thread. I did not want to create a new thread since this one wasn't made and answered too long ago.

    The promotions state that you can save up to $100 via rebate. This applies to the iTouch as well, but at $229. I want to know if you will get back the full $100 via rebate (or $229 for the iTouch) because it says you can save up to.

    Reason why I ask is because Apple states that MBP's battery life can last up to 7 hours but it varies on usage. I'm planning to buy my 13" MBP soon and a quick response would be much appreciated. Thanks ^^.

    Are you referring to the printer promotion?

    Uh, do you trust Apple to sell you a computer? Why the heck would the rebate be fake?

    Well both the printer and iTouch are eligible for rebates. It says I can receive a rebate up to $100 for the printer and $229 for the iTouch. I want to know if I will get the full amount through the rebate or will I receive less since it says up to.

    Because there are probably various printer models to choose from, the maximum printer rebate you can get is $100. For example, if you choose the $79 printer, you get $79. If you choose a $150 printer, you only get a check for $100, since that's the maximum.
