Accessorize It - The Rebate Debate
How low can CD-R prices go?
By Natalie Hope McDonald
With a little patience, follow-through and comparative browsing, a savvy recordable media shopper won't have to pay top dollar for CD-Rs that often come with hearty rebates. For example, a 100-pack of Imation CD-Rs priced at $44.99 can be had for $9.99 after instant and mail-in rebates at Best Buy. Similarly, a 50-pack of $20 CD-Rs at Circuit City comes with $17 in rebates. Finding these deals usually means just opening up the Sunday edition of a newspaper, or reading the fine print on merchandise. In some cases, a merchant may even do the research for shoppers. CompUSA actually posts its products rebates online.
