That is entirely incorrect.
As you can see on the Rebate Information Page... only 2 UPCs are required:
885370414059 - Microsoft Windows 8 64-Bit OS
817474010264 - Acronis True Image 2013
The UPC for Total Defense is: 817839011691 and is not required by the Bundle Rebate. It is not mentioned anywhere on the rebate registration for the bundle rebate.
The Special Instructions are just a reminder to the rebate processor that 2 UPCs are required for this rebate since typically only one is.
I specifically said in the OP that both UPCs are required for the Bundle Rebate, so I don't get where the confusion is?
Well, I see that. But the description says "Microsoft Windows 8 Operating System Software and Acronis True Image 2013 Software and Total Defense Premium Internet Security Bundle" and they need all upcs. So there is a possibility of getting rejected for not sending Total defense upc. Not saying it will not work, but there is a risk factor.
Getting stuff from slickdeals is not slick if you cannot use or ebay it.
