Hi guys, I have been using this site for a few weeks now to narrow down my choices for a new build. I notice a lot of deals include mail-in rebates. I've always heard mixed things on mail-in rebates. I was wondering how you guys fared with them from the particular retailers linked on this site?
The main reason I'm asking is because I found two seemingly great deals on Windows 7 at Tiger Direct. I just learned that MS will offer a free upgrade to Windows 10, so I'm gladly skipping Windows 8.1 for my new build. Check out this deal with an insane mail-in rebate. I couldn't care less about the other software, but getting Windows for $40 or $50 with a free Windows 10 upgrade seems like a no brainer, I just don't want to get shafted out of the rebate due to a technicality. It also says some or all of the rebate will come in the form of a prepaid card? Thanks for any guidance!
