Title say it all. These are most likely MCC 003. Check out my sig to see how they perform.


#2

Hehehe, except how many :wink:


#3

not bad for 100 but i hate the $30 mail in rebate …just give the good price and be done with it!


#4

Yo-

Did you click on and read the thread?

If you did - you would not be asking-

I should have included the 100 to be clear. I have found these without rebates before. About 3 weeks ago I paid $35. I come out OK with rebates so I will take the risk to save $8. I agree though, stuff the rebates.


#6

Good luck with the rebate! Three and a half months after buying some Verbatims, I finally have half of the $20 that’s supposed to be coming to me. Still fighting for the other $10.

Parago / rebateshq.com – what a bunch of con artists!


#7

It varies. I have had no trouble with 5 Verbatim Rebates. Keep trying, they usually cave, especially with recent lawsuits assessing fines for bad rebates.


#8

oh yes, i have never given up on any rebate to this day.
but as any marketing 101 book will tell you - rebates are designed with the hope that a percentage of people will forget/misplace/give up on the rebate thus increasing profits. it’s this attitude that always makes me look at other choices if possible.


#9

The thing is that does work, effectively too.


#10

nytvd,

I agree with your views.


#11

It’s one thing to offer rebates in the hope that a lot of people won’t get around to mailing them in. It’s quite another to systematically reject valid submissions, as Parago routinely does. Would you shop at a store whose cashiers were instructed to short-change people? That is essentially what Parago is doing to us.

The price has gone down to $25.50 now. Free shipping. Limit 1 for the rebate. I just placed an order.

I hate mail-in rebates too, but I haven’t had any trouble yet with Verbatim rebates.


#13

Amazon has these for $31.99, no rebate, free shipping.

I would rather pay $6.50 more and not have my money tied up in a rebate for months, but that is a decision everyone must make for themselves.


#14

Agreed Henry. People should jump on this as Amazon does not go this low for long and they won’t do backorders to lock in price. The -R are also this price.

Now that Newegg has raised the price and added shipping, Amazon is cheaper.


#15

99 cents shipping has returned for today. Amazon’s are out of stock.


#16

$30 MIR :eek:

Not worth getting my head bumping in the wall again… :bigsmile:


#17

Keep checking Amazon, no rebate. Looks like they take backorders now.
