    When you submit your rebate claim for the student's back to school thing, do they automatically send our you check?

    Or do they need time for someone to check your claim and then they mail your check?

    Well, because they can? You're getting a discount/something for nothing, why should they hurry to return the money?

    I helped someone in my family (a teacher) buy a Macbook this weekend at an Apple Store, and I was impressed that the Apple employee helped her to complete the rebate processing while she was still there, in the store. I mean, she didn't get her check in the store (of course it will still be sent in the postal mail), but this will surely improve the processing time.

    [In contrast--during previous years--I always bought a Mac for this rebate from the online Apple store, and then I mailed my rebate, and it would take about a month, as I recall....]
