CompUSA PM to BB - Rebate as immediate GiftCard!

AzLarry 42 December 25, 2004 at 07:17 PM
Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I haven't seen this posted before, and wonder if this is just YMMV or normal policy for CompuUSA?

Last week, I brought a BB ad into CompUSA to see if the would match a $98.99 - $50 rebate from BB on a 120MB Maxtor HD. They said that they reduce the price to the after rebate price and then make you buy a gift card for the rebate amount. Effectively it is the same price, but you get a gift card immediately instead of waiting for a check (and pay less sales tax).

Here's what they charged me at my Highland Park, IL CompUSA:
Maxtor 120GB $48.99
Gift Card (shows as "Value Customer Reb") $50
Tax $3.67
Total $102.66

I then immediately used the gift card to buy the Microsoft Office 2003 S&T edition for $99 {10(12?) days of CompUSA Xmas}.

Next rebate item I plan to buy at BB, I'm going to try this again at CompUSA.

Yes
that worked for me also

I am not sure how long it will last but it is better than the rebate wait and with the gift card you can buy something and sell it
