Please NOTE: This morning the product cost $168.xx and was In-Stock. I didn't post it because I didn't think it was good enough SO the price changed to $112.95 before rebate and I thought that's better...<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I guess I SHOULD have posted it this morning Oh Well...

The problem is that it changed to OOS, but you can try backordering it if you are a RISK taker. The rebate goes to wheretheheckismyrebate.com in New Rochelle so that cools things off, but I am just posting this for those who wan't to take a chance on it.

You have to take the Postmark Date, the Order Date, and other factors into consideration.

1. The PRICE is Flaming Hot.
2. TCA has a bad reputation, but remember Toshiba pays the rebate. Other's have said that Toshiba pays TCA fast.
3. I am just giving you the Information. I found the deal thought it was good so I posted it. I am sorry if you don't get this on time or you have problems with the rebate.

Hope this Helps!

Crappy Rebate Company aside, you could order it and if the item doesn't ship or arrive in time for their rebate timeline for purchases, you can just refuse the package from UPS as it's free shipping with this code GASC3F6CA1.

wow that is a great price, but rebate scares the heck out of me

Rebate info:

<< From now until 8/15/02, receive a $100.00 rebate with purchase. Click below to view and print the rebate form. Complete and mail the form to the specified address. Include a copy of the Shipment Notification email you receive after your order ships. See our Rebate Center for more information.. >>

Pull up the rebate from the site...it's a VStore rebate!!


Sounds great but rebate is scary,

I bought with free shipping.
If it doesn't come in time, then I will not accept package.

After all, the site does state there is a rebate.
We will see because rebate is only good until 8/15/2002.
So, if its on back order longer than that, then I will cancel order.

NOTE: Reordered after site said, instock.

super hot deal, but the rebate is just too much.

would be a worth a shot if the rebate center was better. I might still take a chance. Even if you do roll the dice sucessfully and get qualify for the rebate, you can expect a wait of 3-6 months for the check if they dont mess up. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0>

yeah, place an order as well. made print outs of everything so if need to can argue with Gateway. Had to cancel my first order as I forgot about the free shipping.

i am gonna pass this deal. won't deal with tca any more. i have ~$100 rebate unpaid for 6 months.

My e-mail notification says it will be 30 days till backorder will ship.
Sounds like this deal is dead.

I ordered, hope I don't get scr*w*d on the rebate...

We'll see if they even ship it.

The site now says they are back in stock and ship in 4-5 days

Cool. Thanks. I hope it works. I cancelled the buy.com order for the DataPak which was over $90 with shipping. I printed copies of everything just in case.

How hard is it going to be to get the rebate?
The rebate really scares me on this one.
I normally don't shy away from rebates.

Only lost out on 1 rebate a long time ago.
That was before I became more assertive.

We will definitely have to hang together on this rebate.
It may be very challenging.

Beware, this Rebate goes to TCA Rebates in NY.

Don't say you weren't warned

They were warned in the first post.

Just got one.. thanks.
How good is Gateway in handling returns?

any idea if there are limits to how many you may order?

Rebate form says

"This offer is limited to one rebate per eligable product purchased."

That sounds like you can get as many rebates as drives you purchase. However,
when I called the 800 number on the form, the clueless woman on the other
end indicated that meant one per PERSON no matter how many drives you buy.
I think she must not know what she's talking about (sounded totally clueless),
but I'd hate to make a mistake and buy two and get only one rebate!


Really a Nice deal!!! I too have taken a chance.

I placed an order yesterday and it still show up as back ordered. Me wonders if I should cancel that one and order again?

WESBC: That is what I did.
I canceled the backorder and re-ordered.
That is what they told me to do when I called them.

I just placed my order now we all have to stick together if there is a rebate problem they will wish this deal was never posted on fatwallet by the time we get done with them!

I jumped on board, too. I already have one that I bought for $100 from TigerDirect, but for $20 bucks shipped, I couldn't help myself. You never know when you need 2GB. Plus that's even more mp3's for my Amigo<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

I took the dive into the deep end also!

If it was $20 bucks shipped i'd get one too but this is $20 bucks AFTER rebate. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>



It's not $20.00 shipped.
It is $12.95 shipped.

Of course the rebate is only the challenging part.
What would it be without a challenge.
Like most things in life, the challenge is what makes something worthwhile.

I was charged tax

If you want to order more than one, you DEFINITELY do NOT want
to purchase them in the same order, as the rebate form explicitly says
that you have to send the ORIGINAL retail purchase receipt or invoice. You
only get one of those per order.


yuck..new rochelle rebate processing center is enough to keep me away from this otherwise great deal..

I just placed an order this morning at 11 am and received an email saying it's on backorder, but the product details page still shows 4-5 days.

wonder if i should try reordering...

I don't know what the big deal is on the tca rebates. I've sent in a bunch of stuff to them for ChumpUSA stuff and have always gotten them.

I'm tempted to get in on this but already have one from TigerDirect. But man, for $12.95 after rebate I might just have to get another one.

I got in on this deal as well. I will just be extra carefull with the rebate submission and send it with a receipt confirmationand all the usual copies if we have to fight them.

Shipped means what you pay out of pocket UPFRONT. Without any rebates, after coupons. Now if you say "$12.95 shipped AR" that would be correct.

It would be $112.95 + any applicable tax shipped - $100 MIR!

I want this drive BAD, but there's no way I'm dealing with New Rochelle ever again. If they took 6 months for my $50 Visiontek Gf3 ti200 rebate, I can imagine how long they'll shuffle their feet on this one.

TCA rebate? NO WAY. currently I'm have trouble with them on 3 rebates...total $110. four calls and 3 letter already. I'll never ever touch anything with TCA rebate no matter how tempting it is.

I got e-mail confirmation on "IN STOCK" order.
Guess What?.........it is on backorder!!

I'm canceling this order and moving on.
Too bad the ordering process stinks.
I won't have to be around when the rebate starts to stink too. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

My apologies to Hudster for bumping this thread. Hopefully, some FW'ers who didn't buy the Toshiba 2gb card to eBay will find this useful.

See this post on how to get a Lexar Card Reader for $13 that can read the Tosiba card from your desktop. This can be very helpful if you need to move a lot of data from a notebook to desktop.
