Office Depot FAR software for the week of 02/10/2013 (only a Norton title for $10 AR)
NOTE: There is breaking news on the subject of Symantec/Norton rebates. Apparently, high volume submitters are having their rebates invalidated on account of the dreaded "Your rebate request did not pass our audit process".

Current User Upgrade Mail-In Savings Visa® Prepaid Cards" $20 standard rebate #13-46722 found on pre-submit site --- rebate valid from 02/10/13 through 02/16/13 --- paid via VISA prepaid card --- original UPC code (The UPC code is a 12-digit bar code found on the bottom of box.) --- copy of receipt $15 upgrade rebate #13-46721 found on pre-submit site --- rebate valid from 02/10/13 through 02/16/13 --- paid via VISA prepaid card --- original proof of purchase (proof of purchase is located on the top inside flap of box). --- copy of receipt --- proof of previous ownership of a stand-alone or pre-loaded version of any Norton™ or Symantec™ software or another company’s antivirus, firewall, antispam, antispyware, utility, or back up software product. Proof of previous ownership submission requirements: a) Previous owners of a stand-alone, retail (boxed or downloaded) product must enclose either a copy of the previous product’s CD, first page of manual (usually titled “User’s Guide”), or your confirmation email from your previous download purchase. b) Previous owners of pre-loaded (OEM) software product must enclose a copy of the previous product’s Help/About screen. ++ Symantec/Norton rebates generally can be pre-submitted at www.symantecrebates.com
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.
--- 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.
I think you should post the same warning with Symantec, as you do with McAfee, as many threads are listing consumers having issues with receiving Symantec rebates. Also. I disagree with GetMaxCashBack, please continue posting the weekly thread with the synopsis of all cheap or FAR items.

damn man.. I know you help a lot bpvh, but a thread just to tell us there's NO free after rebate software this week!?!? Really could have done without IMO. 1brooklyn1 said: I think you should post the same warning with Symantec, as you do with McAfee, as many threads are listing consumers having issues with receiving Symantec rebates. Also. I disagree with GetMaxCashBack, please continue posting the weekly thread with the synopsis of all cheap or FAR items.Really not the same at all. McAfee limits to you one rebate per product title, even with multiple rebates over many months with different amounts and dates, but the language reads the same as most other rebates, limit one rebate per item. Heard of lots of people that had problems with the McAfee rebates, not realizing it was only one rebate ever. Not many issues with Symantec. And sure he should keep posting good deals and FAR offers... this just isn't one of them.
RE title: This thread is part of a series going back more than two years and the series is titled "Office Depot FAR software for the week of <insert date>".
RE this thread and the thread preceding it which respectively contained only a $10 AR title and a $5 AR title: Competitor coupons and/or expiring rewards.
RE Symantec alert: There is no question that the "Your rebate request did not pass out audit process" denials for Symantec/Norton and apparently other manufacturers is of grave concern. It seems to be a developing situation and appears to be mainly impacting high volume submitters. The situation is noted in the first non-title line of the OP.
