Costco has this for cheaper. They are offering $8 manufacturer's discount valid 1/20/14 - 2/23/14. This thermometer for members is only $24.99 after discount - two (2) $10 mail-in rebates = $4.99. Thanks alik99!
This thermometer was never $99.99. Odd rebate terms though with one stating "purchasing" for your baby shower and one stating "receiving" for your baby shower. I guess someone could buy things for their own baby shower but since they are two offers..it's questionable if the terms of "Cannot be combined with any other offer" apply.
I wonder if this qualifies for 3% Cash Back on Baby items?

Most rebates state "Cannot be combined with any other offer" and are still stackable. I think it's worth the try for this Thermometer even if only one of the rebates work. For moms and dads these are so much more easier to use.

This isn't like "most rebates" since it's quite a vague rebate form and doesn't even state the basics like qualified sellers. One could theoretically get it cheaper from somewhere like eBay (as long as it has a UPC) and send in the rebates.

Especially when it comes up for $34.92 at WalMart and $24.99 at Costco. Costco link

This company appears to be new to the rebate game. It's hard to tell if they simply don't know how to write a proper rebate form or if they intend to scam the rebaters.

It seems like in the linked "article" they gave 2 mothers with no instructions a device and had them try it out. It appears from the reviews by other people that these work quite well. I'll still get mine from costco if i ever need one.

Exactly... This thing works pretty darn good but you just need to be careful of not scanning on a wet forehead and sliding it consistently - ie RTFM!
I tried the ear ones years ago but gave up. I was hesitant to get this a few years back but so glad when I eventually got it....

There is definitely a learning curve to use this thermometer and I recommend people practice proper technique if one is bought. I have owned 2 of these for years; one for home and one for use to take temperatures in my office. I am a pediatrician and recommend this for anyone with kids. The ear thermometers are garbage and very inaccurate. The "gold standard" is rectal temperature but I don't think most parents want to do that each time to check a temperature in an already fussy kid.

Thanks OP, I have this one and it just gave up on us this month, and I'm guessing one of my kids or wife drop it, because it is inaccurate now. In for one with Prime.

Well on that page they also have another $5 rebate. As GMY stated, it appears they are new and running too many rebate offers at the same time. I would not be surprised if they honor only one rebate (either one $10 or this at $5) but not any combination.
