I, like many others on this board, have been tempted by the new student union offer. I was planning on getting an iBook along with an iPod mini and printer but have held back. I have enrolled in college but have decided to hold out for one semester. My plan is to move overseas (Hong Kong) for 6 months. Here's my question. How long does the rebate check for the student union deal last? Would it be possible to get one of my relatives to send me the check from the states and cash it in Hong Kong? I'm planning on purchasing and then leaving shortly afterwards. Anyway thanks for reading and sorry for the long post. I need to know this since it will greatly affect my decision.
