Beware Corsair denies rebates
That's quite the blanket statement. Though most rebates are denied due to their submitter not being able to accurately follow the requirements of the rebate to the letter. For example when a rebate asks for the invoice they want a print out of the invoice from within your account, not the E-mail invoice.

I'm submitted email invoices to other companies without issue before. If it says invoice at the top, it's an invoice.

You would think so, but...

True, but just to be safe which one they actually want, you are covered by including both.

Sure a buyer should follow the requirements but if it says invoice, but doesn't say invoice from WHERE, then it's an unwritten condition that is unfair to the buyer. These types of unwritten stipulations that are open to interpretation give the rebate processor an OUT and ensure that the company is still profitable. Just think, a PS weighs like 8 pounds and must cost at least $5 to ship even with volume discount, plus the retailer takes a 50% markup, for $15.99 how can they possibly make money?

I just browsed some of the reviews last time this was posted and almost half of them were sob stories about denied rebates.

I have never been denied a rebate from Corsair... I even got a rebate I didn't expect to get. Said "limit 1 rebate per household" and I was filling out rebates several times that week... Ended up sending two for the two identical items I bought. They were both honored, thought I'm sure it was an accident on their part as well...

Made me like Corsair even more though...

Not everyone even bothers with rebates. Also, it's not much different than "Discounted rate for an honest review" situation...

Newegg probably pays $25 a piece for these things. They might be eating part of the rebate, or they are still happy making their $10 and letting Corsair eat the rebate... In reality, I doubt Corsair pays much more than $5 a piece to make these budget models... So factor in the people who screw the rebate up and never resubmit along with the people who either don't mess with rebates or buy it and forget to send the rebate in (I'm guilty of that)... and they still make a profit...

50% markup? Are you sure? That is a lot of markup. Even Amazon has paper thin margins and makes it up on the volume.

So is the Thermaltake rebate as risky as the Corsair rebate? The 700 watt Thermaltake looks slick but I don't want to get cheated on the rebate. TIA Smilie

So for an i7-6700k build with a low to mid range GPU with two SSDs and 16GB RAM, would I be good with a 650w PSU if I plan to maybe OC a little?
