NOTE: The rebate says the rebate limit is 2 Per Household, however, the actual registration form says 2 claims per household, but only 1 per each UPC code. Since the packages will most likely come with the same UPC code, I would only purchase 1 to be safe.
If the claim form itself says you can submit 2 (max) there must be a way to do that, otherwise they wouldn't have printed it on the rebate form. (unless of course it was a typo and even then you argue it was their fault for not printing accurate info). Maybe you can submit 2 separate rebate forms? Attached the original UPC to the 1st one and then attach a copy to the 2nd one.

Yes, we all know you're not supposed to submit photocopies but in this case it's probably safe to do as long as you call the rebate center and get them to verify it first.


EDIT:

On second thought forget it. This is tiger direct we're talking about. they're known for pulling all kinds of dirty tricks w/ their rebates so it's probably safer to just do 1 rebate.

Are you running 6x2gb or 3x4gb? Looks like you're Tri-channel, and yes, you should be able to swap 2 fine. However, your existing RAM is only 1333, so this new, 1866 RAM will slow down to 1333

Please explain, how can you tell my RAM is 1333 ? i don't do hardware related projects much, but would like to learn.

I assume the box of 2x 4GB RAM will have 1 single UPC! Do you think we can qualify for rebates on 2 orders of these, ie order of 74.99x2, rebate of $20x2 ?

My apologies, the OP has been corrected.

I went through the registration process with "dummy info" and it does allow you to claim a maximum of 2 per household.

When I only saw "2 claims per household" on the main registration page, I thought that you were only allowed 1 claim per each "item" on the registration form.

If you notice, both "items" on this Offer #ADA-11539 are for the same RAM model #: AX3U1866W4G10-DR

There are 2 possible UPCs that the product could come with:
4713435798461
842243007244

I guess one product packaging has the newer UPC and the other has the old one, that's why this form is created kind of weird.

You can tell in the first info you posted. DDR is commonly read by the computer as the true speed. DDR stands for "double data rate" memory.

Think of cycles as turning on and off a light switch. 100 hz let's say means you turn on and off the light switch 100 times in 1 second (1 hz means one cycle per second). SD ram (single data rate) transmits data on every "on" switch, but nothing when you turn the switch off. DDR transmits data on every on AND off switch, so it's effectively double the data transmitted. Even though this ram is shown as "1866 mhz", the "clock" is actually only running at 933 mhz.

So in your post, 668 mhz is the "true" speed of your RAM, but in DDR terms it is effectively 1333 mhz (because the memory clock is running at 668 mhz, but you get data twice per cycle, it doubles the memory clock speed to get the effective speed).

BTW, if you take out 2 of your 2gb memory sticks and replace it with 2 4gb memory sticks, you will lose any "tri channel" benefits (which might not be much, as I read earlier today). In order to maintain tri channel, you have to have 3 sets of RAM that are the same (2+4/2+4/2+4, 2+2/2+2/2+2, 4+4/4+4/4+4, etc)

So its safe to order 2 sets of these packaged 2x 4GB rams, making it $149.98. Use a $10/$100 TD coupon to make it $139.98. We will get 2x$20 back in rebates.
Discover has 5% cashback
Effective price: Approx $93 for 4 of 4GB RAM.
