Important rebate instructions below
For the Total Defense rebate:
Activation is required prior to rebate redemption. This will require a valid credit card. A one-year subscription is included so this will not cost extra if you cancel the automatic renewal service.
Activate online[totaldefense.com] or by installing. You card will not be charged but there will be a $1 authorization. During this process you will sign up for their automatic renewal service.
Use the link on your account page to "Cancel Automatic Renewal Service"[totaldefense.com]. Doing this will not impact your rebate. You may receive an error if you try to cancel before their system updates. Try again in 15 minutes. If it still doesn't work try again in a day or two.
Double check your activation code when filling out the registration form. They only check the length at this point and a typo may cause your rebate to be denied.
Submit your invoice, not packing slip, order confirmation, or the order status page. Your invoice will be available the morning after shipment by following the view invoice link in your order history.
"Proof of purchase of Qualifying Bundle purchase" is your invoice showing both items.
One year from activation: subscription automatically expires without additional charges.
You will not receive email updates for the Total Defense rebate. For the drive rebate you should receive emails when your documentation is received and when it is approved.
You can use the "Check Rebate Status" link in the email titled "Rebate Registration Confirmation".

what is the activation code the rebate is talking about? Do I need to fill in my credit card info to activate this stuff?
from what i gather, you need to activate the software online before the rebate is approved.
per the rebate form, "The product must be activated prior to rebate redemption. Activation will require a valid credit card however your subscription may be cancelled at
anytime. Total Defense will verify that the product has been activated."
so how does one submit both rebates when they both ask for original UPC? Even if I could submit both rebates I wouldn't do this just because I hate Total Defese.
confused. it's 2 different products. each product box will have a separate UPC to be mailed
The reviews of the Total Defense are so horrible that I am going to stay away from this deal. The rebate for Total defense requires you to install and activate it online, I do not want this thing anywhere near my computer even if they give me money. Folks, read about total defense before thinking you are getting the HDD for $60. The headache of dealing with this software seems way more than the deal is worth.
