Read this first…
I had been having a he!! of a time finding an OfficeMax store with the Arita DVD+R 100 pack in stock. Got a lot of “we might get more by the end of the week” or “we could give you a raincheck”. I finally got one OfficeMax in my area that said “no, we won’t get any more, but we have an approved substitute on which the rebate will be honored”. Holding my breath, I went to the store to find they will substitute Imation 4x DVD+R, (4) 25 pack spindles, and sell them to you for the $59.99 price of the Aritas. OfficeMax showed me the internal documentation indicating this is an approved substitute, and that submitting receipt etc. using the original Arita selection on the rebate form will get you the $20.
It turns out they are Ricoh JPNR01’s!
Call your OfficeMax stores and see if they will do the same! Yes, there’s a chance we will get screwed on the rebate, but then again they might be telling the truth (actually, I’m curious to see if this is something beyond this one store). And, unlike some a the last comments in the original thread, these are sold as 4x disks, nice smooth edges. Burning one tonight to see what Kprobe says!
