Canon mistyped my address in wrong on one of these and I am out $300 because I never received the rebate. They said to call back in 2-3 weeks. This is a big rebate, and to go to a gift card is risky rather than a check. I prefer a check instead of these gift cards. Easier for someone to use a gift card than cash a check not in their name.
Maybe they had too many screw ups is why they have gone to pre-submit rebates.

I got this printer the last time around to replace my 9000MK II. I though B&W prints would be superior with the added gray ink. Using the proper profiles for Platinum Pro and the Luster papers, as well as several Red River papers I use, the colors from the Pro-100 are muted and not as vibrant and B&W are essentially indistinguishable between the two printers. This is evident in soft proofing through LR as well as on the print. You can test for yourself by just downloading the ICC profiles for the paper and printer and soft proof in LR. If I had thought to do this before I bought it, I would have passed. In both cases, there is a subtle color case even when printing in "Black and white" on the printer set up page.
Both are great printers and the Pro-100 prints faster in side by side tests and for ~$100 after rebate I'm not complaining, but I'm not sure I would recommend anyone to upgrade from a good Epson or 9000MKII to this printer.
This promotion is still going on. Just ordered the printer ($326.51) and the semi-gloss paper ($49.12), both shipped from and sold by Amazon.com. $300 rebate, in the form of an American Express Reward Card, is good for purchases made by September 30, postmarked by October 30, and received by Canon by November 13.
Price after rebate this time around is $75.63. Thanks to the OP for originally alerting me to this deal in the first place!
