WARNING: Some of these freebies require additional purchases (eg. Tax Software), product activation or proof of upgrade. Make sure to read all rebate requirements before purchase! See the Quick Summary below this post for more detailed information that might be provided by other FatWalleters.
Need a rebate form? Fry's is now showing the link for your rebate form when you go to ORDER TRACKING and view your order. Another way to find a rebate form is to go here.    Many rebate houses are no longer accepting the invoice included in the box. To be on the safe side go to ORDER TRACKING, click on your order and then click on PRINT FOR PROOF OF PURCHASE. Print this out and submit as your receipt as needed. You might want to send both the invoice and printed receipt just in case. Need cusomer service? Fry's toll free number is now 1-877-688-7678.

For Current Freebies, look below in the Quick Summary. Feel free to add new freebies as you find them to the Quick Summary.

Nice post. Be sure to check rebate terms - several required an additional purchase such as Turbo Tax or Tax Cut at Fry's.

Nice. I'm holding out for free shipping.

Microsoft Money 2005 Standard only has a $10 rebate. More Outpost.com rebate trickery...they have a habit of listing after-rebate prices when the rebate has expired, or listing wrong rebate amounts.

Word of warning about Versacheck... rebates take forever, and they never send them out unless you call and complain (not a free call either). Personal experience talking here (I was warned by FWers, but didn't heed it). They do their rebates internally.

Others also complain Versacheck has deducted the value of any coupons used, even though they were retailer coupons (didn't happen with me).

Plus, many banks don't accept checks using Versacheck, unless you outfit your printer with magnetic ink. Others report their bank refusing to accept them, as they have to be processed by hand when printed without magnetic ink.

Probably not worth the hassle.

Ditto similar warning about banks not accepting checks with "American Checkbook 7.0."

I think they just don't have both rebates listed. There *is* another one which will make it FAR if you purchase taxcut. You can submit *either* the $10 or the $29.99 one, depending on your qualifications. Outpost just doesn't have it listed, even though they have their price adjusted to (apparently) account for it, and, of course, they are failing to mention the second qualifying purchase required.

Many of these rebates are *not* outpost rebates, so whether outpost is good or not at their rebates has no relevance for those products...

If you go to Staples or Amazon (for example) you can find the universal rebate for for the combo purchase of any money product and taxcut.

There is no tracking website. You have to call the phone number on the rebate form. If no number, then find their general number on their website.

I was interested in the FAR$40 SITEMAKER PRO
and found this on cNet review Forum...


SiteMaker Pro ripoff
I just realized what a complete rip off SiteMaker Pro supposed software is. You pay $50.00 for a disk that all it does is connect to their website, only to be told it's a temporary trial and you have to pay a monthly fee in order to actually use anything......

I would even hold them until Staples or OM have them FAR, and use some coupons.

I think all or at least most of these deals are also at Fry's. For Ulead DVD MovieFactory 3 Disc Creator to be free, you need an upgrade from DVD Movie Factory 1, 2 or 3 Standard Edition or Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator, Ahead Nero or Sonic MyDVD with a copy of the copyright page.

I bought this. Has anybody tried it? Any experiences to report?

rated:
Ulead DVD MovieFactory 3 Disc Creator works great. I use it to author all of my DVD's from MiniDV camcorder and old VHS tapes.

I prefer to edit outside of the software and just use this to create the DVD compliant menus, etc., then burn with Nero.

There is better stuff out there that is significantly more expensive but this creates some nice looking DVD's for the price, IMHO and as always, YMMV!

rated:
I also like the Ulead DVD MovieFactory 3. It has most functions enough for general application needs, but simple and easy to use.

If you bought the NEC ND-3500A dual-layer DVD±RW drive from the recent FW deal here. It is included as application software in the driver CD. Make your $50 deal even sweeter, what a deal

And the EZ Armor at least is two rebates, one competitive upgrade for $20 requiring proof of other product and the other is for $30 requiring the top of the tax software box and a single receipt showing both this package and the tax s/w. Worst of all, both seem to require ORIGINAL Computer Associates UPC! No, thanks...

i'd love the FAR 128MB card, but ground shipping (which supposedly "starts at $4.83") is $6.77 for me. I know i'm on the east coast, but this thing weighs like 2 ounces.

Anybody has experience with Ulead rebates? I sent in 2 in Oct, still waiting for those.

The customer service is just not there. They make you wait forever on phone to tell you that rebate is not in system, call after few weeks (no info on what date they are processing currently etc).

If you email their support, your email will bounce. I will post when I get first of ulead rebates (then I may buy these titles also).

Versacheck rebate requires additional S/W purchase, so it is not really a FAR item.
