Tigerdirect is having a sale on some console accessories.  I've ordered a few times from them in the past without any rebate problems, the rebates here are pretty big though.
 
Sony PlayStation 4 Camera
$59.99 - $20.00 = $39.99 AR - free shipping
Rebate is valid 08/04/14 to 08/31/14, Limit 1 Per Household
 
Sony Playstation 4 Gold Wireless Stereo Headset
$89.99 - $50 rebate = $39.99 AR
Rebate is valid 08/04/14 to 08/31/14, Limit 1 Per Household
 
also Microsoft Xbox one Stereo headset
$59.99 - $20.00 = $39.99 AR
Rebate is valid 08/04/14 to 08/31/14, Limit 1 Per Household
 
You may get free shipping with Shoprunner, free with certain AMEX cards.
 
Also a $15 off $100 coupon exists, will need some filler items but its pre-rebate
 
rebates are attached in case they pull em down
 
I'd say the gold headsets are definitely worth that price, especially with Destiny coming up.  I bought em for $50 from Best Buy a few weeks ago and they are awesome.

The headphones are tempting. My old Koss Portapros recently stopped working in one ear, and I need a replacement, and they also run for $40. I need something for my Vita and phone though. Just how portable are these?

not that portable, they do fold up but still bigger than a ps4 controller or a vita.  they do come with a little carrying pouch

 

i don't think the usb dongle works off a vita though, not sure how exactly you'd plug it in.  i personally just use small earbuds with my vita, they fit right into the carrying case for it

3.5mm jack for everything that isn't a console or PC.

Got a pair on Friday.

That's a ridiculous deal for anyone willing to tangle with the rebates. $15 off $100 will stack with some filler and the cash back sites will all work on pre-rebate amount, too.

I'm looking at getting the sony headset and either BF4 or CoD:Ghosts to sell (could get $20+ easily) or maybe just a $25 live card.

TD is also selling COD Ghosts (PS4/Xbox one), Madden 25, and AC4 for Xbox one for $20 or so, good deals if you need the games

 

also if you have an AMEX card check your offers, some people have $20 off $100 offers I think

 

and you get cashback on some sites

 

plus if you have shoprunner shipping is free on some items, shoprunner is free with amex cards

Damn, that Sony Headset deal is nice. I spent $60 on mine and I love it. Easily worth the full retail price for me.

How hard is it to wrangle these rebates through TigerDirect though?

I've messed with the rebates with TigerDirect before... been totally burnt on them too.  Bought a hard drive and sent in my receipt, after about 2 months I got something saying that was for the wrong model. Bastards...

I'm gonna be broke for the next couple weeks, but I'll bite on a PS4 camera for that price since the sale ends 8/31

Never in a million years would I mess with TigerDirect's rebate scam. It is a literal scam where they will blatently not give you back your rebate, as zebular said. It's one of the companies that definitely deserves to go out of business. Don't give those thieves a single cent.

I've sent over 70 rebates back to tigerdirect and only 2 have not been received by the rebate company which they then allowed me to resubmit. I've gotten every rebate back from them guys.

Tecnically, they did go out of business once. TigerDirect is Circuit City

Tigerdirect bought the Circuit City name and trademark after the latter filed for Bankruptcy.

 

Anyway, I stay away from rebate deals from anyone. I already got screwed out of rebates from Tigerdirect and Newegg. But if anyone here is brave and end up getting a rebate, then my hats off to you.

Damn. I really want those head phones, but they are out of stock online and at my local store. I was planning on picking up a pair for when Destiny arrives.

I ordered a few things from TD last year with big rebates including a $90AR vita with $60 rebate and $50AR hd and all the rebates came just fine as amex gift cards.    but yeah I prefer no rebate deals nowadays, rebates are a pain in the ass

You have that backward.  Circuit City went out of business and TigerDirect bought the name.

Really kicking myself for buying the Gold headset for $70 a month and a half ago. Don't use it that much either...

There's also a $15 off 100 tigerdirect coupon and $15 off 50 from Amex sync.

 

TigerDirect coupon:  Just enter your email and it will generate a link for you to click and activate.

 

Headset and camera  = $150

Camera Rebate  = ($20)

Headset Rebate = ($50)

TD coupon = ($15)

Amex statement credit = ($15)

Free shipping with shop runner

=============================

OOP amount was $135

Final net cost = $50

 

I've only had one rebate with TigerDirect and it came back for me.  I'll try my luck again despite what many say is just refund roulette.

Tiger direct has significantly improved their rebate processing in the last 18 months or so. They use a 3rd party to fulfill them and it's VERY easy to do and rebates are sent very fast.

 

It's true that they used to be the worst and least trusted rebate company, but this is no longer the case.

Thanks OP we shall see how this rebate process goes. Seems pretty easy to me just need UPC and packing slip. 

 

I mean $40 for the Xbone headset where I would have spent $25 on the adapter is a pretty good deal.

Hm, that so? I admit, it's been a while since I've used it.

Walmarts had it for $42 for weeks, doubt it'll go up.

Amazon has the camera for $42.91.  I'm pretty sure Tiger Direct charges for shipping so Amazon is cheaper and you don't have to deal with a stupid rebate.

Remember when the cameras were selling for $150-200?  Good times.

I am baffled why anyone would get the PS4 camera when it is currently $43 on Amazon with Prime shipping.
Is it worth waiting 2 months for a rebate to save $3?

No, probably not. When you couple it with the camera and get the discount I documented, it is worth considering.
