Title say it all. These are most likely MCC 003. Check out my sig to see how they perform.
Hehehe, except how many
not bad for 100 but i hate the $30 mail in rebate …just give the good price and be done with it!
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.
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!
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.
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.
The thing is that does work, effectively too.
I agree with your views.
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.
In addition to Verbatim, here are Parago’s current partners in crime, according to its website:
ADVANCED MEDIA (RITEK USA)
COBRA ELECTRONICS CORPORATION
HAIER AMERICA TRADING LLC
MONSTER CABLE INC.
PIONEER ELECTRONICS, INC.
PROVIEW TECHNOLOGY INC.
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.
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.
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.
99 cents shipping has returned for today. Amazon’s are out of stock.
Not worth getting my head bumping in the wall again…
Keep checking Amazon, no rebate. Looks like they take backorders now.
