====================

****ALERT ON McAfee REBATES****

McAfee enforces a one per product limit on its rebates. It does not matter if the rebate has a different rebate number or offer period. The rebate invalidation message is "Your rebate request did not pass our audit process".

UPDATE:
--- While it appeared from several posts over the past year on FW and SD that McAfee was no longer enforcing the one rebate per product limit, it now appears that the "Your rebate request did not pass our audit process" invalidation has returned. LINK
--- There is one poster on FW who had not submitted a McAfee rebate since falling victim to the Summer 2010 debacle until June 2012. The rebate submission was invalidated. After failing to get the rebate processor to valid the rebate, the poster was able to convince a McAfee representative to make good on the rebate. Not sure what to make of this but it is possible that at least some of those black listed during the Summer 2010 debacle are black listed for life.

====================

NOTES:

--- Link to Office Depot's rebate website: LINK
--- "FAR": free after rebate
--- "completely new rebates": the goal of my Office Depot rebate threads is that the rebates of any title listed in the "completely new rebates" category can be submitted without concern for past rebate submissions.
--- "standard rebate": all rebate proofs can be satisfied with the purchase of the title.
--- "upgrade rebate": at least one rebate proof requires providing a certain proof of owning a previous version of the product or a competitors' product.
--- "CONTINUING rebate": the rebate was not offered for the first time during this offer period. Please check your rebate submission history to determine whether you have submitted this rebate in the past.
--- "onbox" or "inbox" rebate: the rebate form or the information for submitting the rebate are found on or in the product box. If known, a link to a pdf version of the rebate or the pre-submission information for the rebate are provided.

Thank you OP

B&M only had 3 of AVG and the Trend Micro along with 6 of the PCTotalCare.
On a unrelated note, the cash register system is very flexible...possibly more flexible than the WalMart/Sam's Club system

(WalMart if I remember correctly allows upto 5-6 bank/credit cards before forcing the customer to use cash for a transaction...i was buying a WalMart GC to use a Sam's Club later
online, Sam's Club can handle a combo of 2 cc + at least 2 GCs...I think)

the reason why I said the OD system might be more flexible is because i was able to use 1 coupon on the software purchase, then used 9 GCs (1 merchandise card, and then 8 lady gaga $20 GCs) then came the rebates and receipts....the cashier was very understanding about it though.

one last thing...for some reason, the Trend Micro and the AVG were behind the counter and not on the shelves. trust their inventory in this situation.

update: if a person purchased the iolo totalcare, use the pdfs provided in the OP (in particular #12-38682, when it prints out at the register at B&M the terms are confusing -- it too requires only the original UPC...so just follow the pdf file)

15% off everything in the bag @ Staples, could be used for a competitor coupon for OD - http://akimages.crossmediaservices.com/listingimages/Retailers/S...

On a related note, I wish so much that the Staples registers would be as good as the OD ones about % off the total purchase. Annoying to have a cashier have to break out a calculator for each item.

Just confirming that I was successful in using the 15% off Staples coupon at B&M OD on the Trend Micro/AVG titles listed in the OP.

Covered my sales tax and will be about an $11mm after 4 postage stamps to mail in 4 rebates (2 reg/2 upgrade)

can you do the titanium rebate with OD if you also doing the same titanium product rebate with Newegg (differnt offer number)

carryon said:   can you do the titanium rebate with OD if you also doing the same titanium product rebate with Newegg (differnt offer number)
To date, as long as the rebate numbers have been different it has been all good.

I think I posted in an older thread, but has any body else had problems doing the intuit quick books rebate that was posted last month? I got a postcard saying "pending intuit review" today. Says have to submit verifying info. by 1/12/13 but doesnt request anything.

has anyone received the AVG rebates mentioned in OP? I only see the status for the upgrade for AVG, but the $20 status has not shown up for me...the other software stati have shown up, but the AVG is the one that i'm not sure why it's not showing up yet (misspelling of name or address? just slow in showing up?) I'll give it 3 more weeks...sigh
