Intel SSD Sale

Hadn't looked in a min, but looks like there's an Intel SSD sale going on.

They're all SATA2 which I still feel is more than worth it.

80G - $89.99 ($80 off)
120G - $119.99 ($100 off)
160G - $149.99 ($160 off)

You're looking at roughly $1/G. My bro is running one as a Apple issued SSD upgrade, and has been for a min. Despite the majority of the discount being mail-in , this might be something worth looking into.

All in store order though.

Oh gawd. Just read the mail in rebate fine print. Here's the good news:

If your rebate payment is greater than $5.00, you will receive an American Express® gift card issued by Amex Bank of
Canada (“Gift Card”). Use of the Gift Card is subject to the Cardholder Agreement, which includes usage restrictions, terms and conditions. The Gift Card is not reloadable.
For use only at merchants in Canada and the U.S. that accept American Express Cards. Not for use at ATMs or redeemable for cash.
So we're getting a GC. How unfortunate.

I've had a number of those AE gift cards...they work fine for online orders where the total bill is less then the GC is worth.

HH - it isn't a sale price, it is a regular price with a large mail-in rebate.

Rebates take time to arrive, a certain (fairly large percentage) are denied by the rebate clearing house on technicalities, lost or otherwise not claimed. And, as mentioned, there may be time limits and other restrictions as to how you can spend the rebate, so it is not a cash-equivalent.

I had a Amex rebate card that I couldn't spend online, couldn't spend at the gas pump, was charged a surcharge to spend in Canadian dollars, and couldn't even spend at restaurants in the USA because it wouln't auth properly. It had an expiry date and I eventually had to throw it away with $60 remaining on it.
