Freight kills it for me, but you guys in the USA may want to get in on this.

tigerdirect is not the most trustworthy company. it's actually $29.97 and hope they'll honor the rebate and not throw it out like they were caught doing earlier this year.

I have done business with Tiger Direct for three years and have not had a single problem, I have friends that can make the same claim. As for rebates, those are from the manufacturer and shouldn't be attributed to the retailer.

I'm like DC3...not a problem at all in about 10 years of buying this and that, from PS units to inexpensive systems for friends.

I don't like rebate offers, but I've never had a problem getting one from anyone.

I don't trust any sort of mail in rebate. throughout my life I've heard many stories of people not getting mail in rebates, and from my first hand experiences. That is the main reason I don't like Tigerdirect. They list almost all their prices after a mail in rebate, and even if you do get it back, its usually like 3-4 months later. I don't see the sense of them for the manufacturer anyways. If they really are going to give you the money back, why couldn't they of just deducted that price off of it from the first place?
