Mail in rebates on GPUs and 7950 games deal
 
How often are they honored, I might get something like an HD 5450 or 6450 for my backup rig, they can be $18 after MIR like this MSI
MSI Radeon HD 6450 625MHZ 2GB 1.3GHZ GDDR3 DVI HDMI VGA PCI-E Video Card - DirectCanada


And also I don't see the 7950 games promo on DC's site, is that only at participating stores? Or if I bought 1, would I just send AMD some proof of purchase ans the send me some codes/etc

Seeing as how well 7970 does with 12.11, I think my main option is 7950 CF, I shouldn't have to consider the 670 sli or 7970 CF anymore.

If you fill out the forms correctly, it'll be honored.

I've got about 5 or 6 MIR's back on computer parts. The only time it was disallowed was because I sent the UPC code only, and not the whole label showing the part number. Read the directions carefully and you'll get your money back.

Note that everyone tends to pay MIRs with a prepaid credit card now, so they're no good unless you have something to spend it on. It's not like the old days where you used to get a cheque to deposit.

do pp cc's work everywhere a regular 1 should? Like the supermarket?

SugarJ October 26, 2012 09:04 AM

Yes they do.

It's mostly online purchases that don't recongise prepaid cards.

If you don't receive the games, send a message to DC and they should give you the codes.

MIR's for me have never once let me down.
Just as SJ stated, fill out and do all they ask on the form to the letter and you will get your money back.
