This is a good deal based upon the normal price of a MBP. If you think it's a good deal for a laptop in general, you don't know anything about computers. For most people it's overkill.
With that being said, the appeal of this laptop is it's screen and build quality. I love Apple hardware, just not their prices or software. I personally would wait until the next generation so I could get a Haswell processor and then put Windows 7 on it.
Just a FYI, DataVision is a local store here in NYC and personally, I would never give them my business. The sales people are the worse in customer service and they intentionally rip off people. I went there to check the price on a Canon lens that normall retails for about $600, and they were selling it for $799. I told the sales guy it retails for $600 everywhere else and his reponse was "they price it for the tourists, it's still cheaper than what they would pay for it at home so they'll buy it anyway."
How many Rakuten Super Points do I need to buy things on rakuten.com?
Well, it’s pretty easy; 100 Points are worth $1. And we have great news. You can use a mixture of Points and other payment methods when checking out. For example, if the value of the merchandise in your cart is worth $40, then it will take 4,000 Points to cover the cost of the entire purchase. To view your Point Balance, go to the “Review Your Super Points Balance” link in the “My Account” section on our site. Once you get the hang of it, it’s easy and fun to see how much you save!
Also, you can watch for Super Points promotions which can give you up to 30 points for every dollar you spend. So buying that same $40 item on a day giving you 10% back, you will earn 400 Rakuten Super Points, or 4 dollars!
Based on this description, you are getting 1850 Reward Points ($1850.00 x 10%)....you are getting $18.50...not $185 in Reward Points..
Also, the main item page clearly says "Earn 1849 Rakuten Super Points"...1849/100 = 18.49...
Right now you can get a Dell xps15 with FHD screen from the outlet[dell.com] for just under $1,000. You'll have to buy, and install a 256GB SSD for an additional $170 to get similar specs, but you're still saving $500.

BTW it can be converted into cash if you're planning to purchase accessories anyway.
For example, if you're to purchase Applecare protection plan $289, you can only add $104 to get it, right?
it's better to say $1849 with $184.9 credit, rather than "= $1664" in the title.
good deal though, even without considering the credit part. MacMall has it at $1891.49 as the lowest for this model (base model for 15" MBP Retina)
