    Hey all,

    I recently purchased a 24 inch Apple iMac.

    I'm a student, so I qualify for the education promo: aka get a free iPod Touch after rebate; so I picked up an iPod Touch and have my rebate coupon ready.
    Did the same with the $99 Canon printer, mail-in rebate that essentially gets it to me for free.

    My question, and please help me out:

    Both coupons say to cut out my Mac's UPC code and attach it with the other documents I need, however, I only have ONE Mac UPC (lol), how can I do this? Will they accept a photocopy?

    What is the best way to not get screwed, that's all I'm asking.

    Thanks for any help, really appreciated. :)

    Hey don't worry there's no problem:)
    On the sheet for the mail rebate, there's a place where they ask if you've already used your rebate coupon.
    If yes, you just need to write down the date of your purchase*+ the promo name.
    That's all. It's very easy.:)

    actually i just did this 2 months ago (in Canada).
    you must photocopy the Mac UPC. Send the original with the printer + printer UPC. then the photocopy + iPod UPC.
    and a copy of the receipt for both rebates.

    in about 5 weeks you should get your check...sucks unlike the states - no UPCs and check in a week....

    oh well its worth it!
