Finally going to buy my first Mac, the new Macbook, as I have been waiting for this latest update to drop. I did some looking around and it seems that the best overall deal is with MacMall.
$994 Macbook - $50 mail in rebate = $944
$80 HP Deskjet F4480 All-in-One Printer - $80 mail in rebate = $0
$80 Parallels 4.0 for Mac - $80 in mail in rebates = $0
$30 IMSI ClipArt&More - $30 in mail in rebates = $0
$20 everki USA Commute 13.3" Laptop and Document Shuttle - $20 mail in rebate = $0
Product cost (excl. mail in rebates) = $1203.97
Plus $15.82 shipping = $1219.79 in cart price
Minus 3% Bing Cashback = $1183.67
Minus $260 in mail in rebates = $923.67
$923 sounds pretty good to be getting the Macbook, a new printer, Parallels, some random clip art/stock image database, and a shuttle delivered to my door.
But here's the question. A quick Google of MacMall shows that it seems that in the past a lot of people have had problems with their rebates. I was wondering if anyone has any recent experiences that they want to share about MacMall's rebate service? I am a tad wary to leave $260 up in the air if people have problems with them -- though most complaints that I found are from several years ago.
