    I was wondering if anyone got their check back from this deal yet. I sent all the information in but for some reason I must have sent in the wrong part of the cover.

    So for anyone that received their rebate, what part did you turn in for proof of purchase?

    I got $100 check this week.

    If I remember correctly, I sent the plastic cover with the serial # / bar code... but that was almost 2 months ago and my memory is very fuzzy...

    I received my check today. Woohoo, dinner on Microsoft!

    For the rebate, the booklet cover was required.

    For the 2008 version, the boxtop and barcode were required.

    Ya, I sent in the booklet cover and I got a letter saying that it was the wrong thing. WTF, calling them Tuesday. Ugh.

    Just got the same letter. I triple checked each form (for the BFD and the '08 deal) and made sure each got the correct proof. Front cover (gray page) for the BFD $100 and the top plastic bar/code & box top for the '08 upgrade deal.

    Guess I'll be on the phone on Monday. :mad:

    edit: more people getting the same letter - http://forums.macosxhints.com/showthread.php?p=443286

    Attached is the proof of purchase I sent in:

    Got my check this week.

    Anybody got their Office 2008 in the mail yet? I wonder why MS did not make it avialbale for download to folks like us who pre-ordered :confused: Stupid that they're making us wait up to 8 weeks.

    Got the "You forgot the front page of the manual" letter too. Do I really need Office?

    I'm still running Office X. I only opened the 2004 for the BFD and upgrade. I figured for $50 I'd get '08. I'll most likely keep using iWork, anyway, unless a document forces me to Office.

    Anyone else starting to think the acronym BFD has little to do with Black Friday? ;)
