It's a mail in rebate which in my experience with Sandisk, they've always come through. Granted it takes months, but haven't missed a check from them.
all the comments say the sandisk rebate is baseline fraud. I'd be very careful here.
Interesting. I've had 3 or 4 Sandisk rebates I've sent in over the years and all came back with checks. Must have changed in the last 6 months since I got my last rebate.
I sent one in three months ago and got the check 3 weeks ago.
No issues here, methinks some people aren't good at filling out rebates.
It's a great price even if you have to go through the hassle of the rebate, but in my experience you are asking for it by putting so many eggs in one basket. I use multiple 4gb cf cards and change them often. I have never suffered a crippling loss, but I'm also QUITE paranoid about losing pictures during a wedding.
eh, in a few months I'll have the 5dMKII and without one of these, will only be able to store 20 raws per card
That's a fantastic offer.
If you get three, you get $300 in total rebate. That's $14.95 for a 16G Extreme III.
Wonder what's the catch? I can't believe anyone will forget or make an error in a $300 rebate.
You are not getting "cash back" - you are getting some kind of "debit Visa card". Still do not see a catch
The question I asked myself is which is more likely: the card failing or me losing a card. I decided the odds of me misplacing a card were way more likely than the card failing. The more cards I have to keep track of, the more likely I'm going to lose one.
I've gotten all the Sandisk rebates I've sent in.
Yea. It would suck if you put all your pics on an 16GB, and end up malfunctioning.
Question. I'm new to dSLRs, but what kind of memory stick should I get? I'm thinking of purchasing a D90, and would the speed of my memory stick matter? I plan on getting a 4GB. I don't mind the wait to transfer the pictures from memory stick to the computer. But will a faster memory stick matter when taking pictures(example: bursts).
I have one of these (that I paid signifigantly more for) and it is great to have this much storage in the camera. In my 40D, I take RAW and jpg at the highest quality together, and it holds over 900 shots. In jpg alone, about 5000. It has been very reliable and is the only card that has been in the camera for the last 4 months.
Thanks for the heads up Keith! :thumbup:
