What does Original Model mean?
Is there any Spec for the Original Model?

So the big question is: how reliable is the rebate?

I asked few people - they said they got in 3-4 months and sometimes even full 6 months before rebate came. But some people said their rebate never came at all, I am posting few links to them, you can read more comments

If you do mail in rebate, document everything + have proof/copies in case you get denied/ need additional paperwork.

60$ (in worst case, incase rebate is rejected) is a lot for if it is original model which is 12+ years old and will Red Ring of Death soon?

Definitely not worth it, then. It would have been a tinker purchase more than anything, but that's a lot of money to risk losing.

Thanks

Does anyone know if this is legitimately not available in Connecticut, or is it just worded that way in the national flyer with Connecticut having a different wording to avoid saying "free after rebate"?

I already have one. Older model 360s are prone to failure (aside from the "Jasper" models), and these either have heavy use or have been sitting around in inventory for a long time. If the rebate was a sure thing, I wouldn't mind.

Yes - the attachment in the OP says "valid at participating GameStop stores or at GameStop.com"

The REAL question is, when will this go live on GameStop.com? I don't want to go stand in a line to get one when I can order it from my pajamas. The ad says the stores open at 4pm, but that the "offer is valid 11/23-11/24 only" and doesn't mention when it goes live on the website (since all the consoles start at $79 right now)

4am~6am at night Website updates (I heard from GameStop Emplyoee) so maybe check in morning of November 23rd? She also told me they have a lot of stock in their online store so I shouldn't worry about getting out of stock online
