It seems that CUSA also has 90 FUJI TY's for $6 after MIR. You can see them on the first page of the AD.

Thanks Ian,

I just picked up the I/OMagic drive and it is an Optorite DD0203. It came with the usual quick install guide, an audio cable, and one Ricoh 2.4X-4X DVD-R. Software includes WinDVD, Pinnacle Expression, Pinnacle Studio 8 SE, and Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD SE.

Yeah, I went in looking for these this afternoon. Unless you were there when they opened, forget about getting in on this deal.

They still had some of those I/OMagic drives. I would have picked one up, but I'm still pissed at I/OMagic for "losing" the rebate for my TV tuner.

if I do find the fuji 3 30packs at the store near me, can I put all three rebates in the same envelope, and will they accept one reciept? would we have to mail three separate envelopes?

In my experience it is okay to put all 3 rebates into one envelope. Kind of silly not to, if you think about it. And one receipt should be okay as well.

I found the Fujis at my local store. I just started filling out the rebate forms for all the stuff I bought and there was only one rebate form for the Fujis. I thought I would just use the web site and print out the information from there and send it in. Wrong. Fuji says there is a limit of one 30 piece spindle rebate. Back to CompUSA to try and sort it out.

well, yes it is silly however these rebates are fickle in the way they are done. and it is frustrating when they claim the rebate is invalid when you do everything right.

also I viewed the rebate form from the compusa website and it said " Limit 3 rebates on this offer per name, address, group or organization. " "...Please use our Website to check the status of your rebate, or call 1-866-FUJIHELP
(1-866-385-4435) between the hours of 9am and 8pm Eastern Standard Time..."

call them and ask about this offer to clear this up for all of us.

FYI - I have successfully used one rebate form from CompUSA for 3 rebates, like this. And I have stuffed all my rebates into one envelope.

I've never been burned by Fuji, it just takes a while to get the rebates.

If Fuji ever gets tricky and demand 3 separate envelopes for the same 3 rebates, I'll stop buying Fuji's. The rebates are enough work as it is!!!

Yes, the CompUSA website and in the store says 3 rebates, but the Fuji site says limit 1 rebate. I will call Fuji and visit CompUSA tomorrow to try and figure this out.

Fuji has been slow to update their site in the past. Sometimes they don't update it to reflect offers that begin on Sunday until Wednesday or Thursday. If you want to pursue the issue now, that is fine. But I would hold tight for a few more days, without opening spindles two and three, and wait for Fuji to update their site.
