I ordered a cpu from tigerdirect.com, which had a $50 MIR. The rebate is processed through Worldwide Rebates, and offered a "No Wait Rebate" option.
Basically, you pay them a small percentage of the rebate (in my case $4, or 8% of the rebate...im not sure if it varies with price), and they "expedite" rebate process from around 5-8 weeks down to 1 week.
So how many people use that option, vs waiting for the entire amount?
Depends if your short on money. I would rather wait the extra 4-5 weeks in order to get the full amount.
You'll get crazy newbies who call 3x a day for 2 weeks straight, and post argumentative paranoia demanding the rebate is guaranteed, in writing, by certified mail, on their doorsteps, by tomorrow evening. Then all the other newbie sheep freak out, and THEY call 3x a day, for 2 weeks straight, and the paranoia explodes. And suddenly everyone's carting their paper back to the retailer demanding a refund.
All those who CALLED to confirm.... Your dad should have silently slept that night.
