Tell me how? I was only trying to bring up the point about the dates. What I got in return was that people are saying nope it is definitely 2/17. For those on the west coast it won't be 2/17 for 2 more hours. If looking out for fellow CAGs is being the asshat then I guess I am.

As tempting as it is, I'll have to pass. If it was an instant rebate then this would be cool, but I don't feel like being out the $30+ for a min. of 8-10 weeks. Nice find for those that haven't played it though.

Picked up a PS3 copy. Went for the rush rebate since it was only $3, and after discover cashback, I'll break even.

The rebate information says "This rebate is in USD currency and may be paid with a prepaid reward card.". Anyone know what this means? Is a prepaid reward card a gift card? If so, this wouldn't be that great.

I run a computer repair business and deal with Tiger frequently. Yes, their rebates in the past were really spotty or would be rejected outright on first submission, making you resubmit (make copies of EVERYTHING!). Recently they've been much better, and I wouldn't hesitate to jump on this offer. Granted, you'll wait a little bit to get your money back, but free is free.

I would take the time to read ahead on the rebate info though to make sure you don't have to cut the UPC out from the game cover (like they do for video cards and other PC hardware). I've never seen a video game rebate on Tiger before, or maybe I just wasn't looking.

It's like a debit card.
1 John 1:7,9
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

You do have to cut out the UPC and affix it to one of the forms you mail in.

I ordered 1 PS3 and 360 version and filled out the rebate form for both versions on 1 form. $63.72 total with shipping and getting $70 back is an awesome deal.

Lol, this is exactly what "cancerman" was warning everyone about in this thread and several people flamed him for trying to help. Come on now, he was in no way being an asshat to anyone...

Anyway, I'm tempted to try this. I'm not too eager to cut up my game insert though...

So, the TigerDirect page says:
NOTICE: Limit (1) ONE rebate per person, billing address, company, or household

Yet the rabate link says:
Offer Maximum: 2 claim(s) per household

I was thinking of picking up a second copy to give as a gift.
So, just to be clear, I could I buy one under my wife's name even if we live at the same address, right? Or would that not work?

Ughh I ordered before realizing they want you to CUT THE UPC OFF THE GAME. Fuck that shit. I am gonna photocopy the upc, mail it in and hope for the best. If I lose out on the rebate then oh well. Still a cheaper price for this game (on ps3) than it is on amazon.

Hmmm....I'm gonna have to pass on this one, even though I think they'll probably follow through with the rebate.

EDIT: Oh ya, also nice to see cancerman vindicated.

I traded mine in, but Fuck it. Multiplayer was actually fun and now I regret having traded the game in for $16. So I just bought it, first rebate I've ever done for a video game.

Having your UPC intact really matters? This game was $20 back in Nov for both PS3/360. So it's not exactly a cheap price. Hell it was $10 for PC/X360 during the Microsoft Store sale.

It requires the original UPC... I have to cut up my box?


I may try just photocopying my label onto glossy paper, and cutting out the UPC, I mean how are they really gonna know it's not original?
