Hi, I bought a new mac mini yesterday from the apple store here in Montreal. I told the salesperson that the mac mini was my 4th Mac and I did want to get it even it wasn't part of the free ipod touch program. He talked to his superior for about a minute and he came back saying that there was no problem and that it was possible. Maybe my purchase history with Apple ( many ipods, macs and displays ) helped my cause. Is this common pratice or did I just get clearly scammed and my rebate won't be approved ? Should I call Apple first before mailing it ? Thanks.
