Explanation: The deal originally posted was for Win 7 operating system at Tigerdirect for $6.99 after an $83 rebate ($89.99 sales price minus $83 rebate). However, on closer inspection, it appeared that the rebate also required the purchase of Acronis. The Acronis software can be purchased for $22 which would have made this a $29 deal after rebate not including $4 shipping. Still a good price as TDMVP73 noted below. It's not clear that the rebate processor would have noticed the Acronis requirement given its omission from the product listing section of the form but the special instruction inserted at the end of the form does specify this requirement.
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium GFC-02050 Operating System Software - 64bit, DVD
$6.99 AR plus $4 S&H @ TigerDirect.com
After Rebate Price: $6.99
Note: Rebate Registration form is Live but Tiger Product Page has not Updated to Show Rebate. They've Been Taking an Extra Day or Longer to Update Rebate Promotions on Similar Software Titles Such as the Win 8 Rebate.
Caution: Before Placing Your Order, Check the Rebate Link (http://www.4myrebate.com/Claim/Of...cd=TD-9957) to Make Sure it is Still Live and Active. If it is, then Place Your Order and Immediately After Submit Your Pre-Registration through that Rebate Link. The Printout You Receive Will Be Your Evidence that the Rebate was Valid and Active at the Time of Purchase. Many of us Have Filed Rebates that were Live in the Rebate Company's Website But Not Yet Posted by Tiger and Those Rebates Were Valid and Honored.

Not clean with a bit of sleazy thrown in. It's just that the one rebate is technically for a bundle that wouldn't actually be purchased.
I'm not saying it won't work or anything and I'll probably end up getting it.
Yeah, when the Win8 deal was originally posted with 2 bundle rebates I thought it was likely a mistake...a 1 day overlap. Didn't think they'd let the same titles be part of 2 diff bundles. But then they came out with a new TD rebate and continued to package the deal w/ the same 3 titles and 2 bundle rebates. They just didn't discount the pre-rebate price and let the savings be recognized fully in the rebates. Then they did the same thing for the Win7 bundle (w/ Acronis and TD). http://www.tigerdirect.com/applic...7-7302%20B.
So this is a cheaper way of picking up the same 3 titles. The downside of this not working is pretty high ($83 rebate not paid out) even if risk is minimal so the $40 Win7 or $30 Win8 "risk-free" route may be better for some esp if there's the possibility of getting closer to FAR with Discover price pro.
