rebates are hits and misses, I dont mind filling out the rebates, but of course no1 claims that they get the check 100% of the time. I did so many rebates and a few I never heard from. The best retail store with high rebate success rate is Circuit City. They process their rebate the fastest, with email confirmation, I dont know who handles their rebate, but imho, cc is the best store for rebates.
the BenQ 1650 for $20 is a steal but $40 rebates?? c’mmon now, I spent $35 shipped for my benQ 1640 and $41 shipped for my BenQ 1655, NO REBATES.
I hate CompUSA and I will continue hating them, it is a rebate Heaven. I have been avoiding that store for so long since I find most items somewhere else for the same price without the rebates and to get the same price at COMPUSA, you have to deal with the rebates.
If BenQ 1650 and 1655 is a must have for you, then you dont have any other choices but to go through the rebates or just buy the drive and ignore the rebates. Staring tomorrow, they will be having the Connect Computer brand LS, should be a BenQ 1655 for around $8 after rebates, a much better deal than the Norwood brand deal since the rebates are the same amount but most rather have the 1655 than the 1650
