At these prices I'll definitely be picking up Seasons 2 and 3. I already got Season 1 from last year's Black Friday deal from Best Buy for $12.

i know the rebate slip says one rebate submission per envelope. can you check off season 2 and 3 on the same rebate form and include all that in one envelope? or will i need a rebate form for each season?

Would you be willing to post the rest of the ad? Or at least what their deal is for Season 4 of the Simpsons?

I've never done an FYE rebate before. Do you have to ask for a separate rebate form or do they print out individually with your receipt? I already told a friend who lives near an FYE about the $14.99 sale. She agreed to pick me up Seasons 2 & 3 when she goes to get hers. Now I'm wondering if there will be any rebate problems when buying them together (like do they ask for original receipts, no copies, etc.).

What I always do to be safe is to have them ring up each DVD as a separate transaction. Get three receipts and three rebate forms and mail out three letters. It's worth the extra two stamps to be assured of the rebate being honored.

So have we decided that it's risky to get the three seasons on one receipt, or can I put one receipt in an envelope with 3 rebate forms? Also, does anyone know what the price is for the LOTR EE's this week, they have a 10$ rebate for each. Thanks.

these are instant rebates and will be taken off at the register right away.
Ummm, no.

The ad reads "$14.99-$5.00 mail in rebate"

The one near me (FYE) opens at 1:30 on Sundays when the mall opens. Not sure about the one near you.

I don't have a Coconuts around me.

oh. the first posts in another thread on this implied it was an instant rebate.


I am glad to know it is mail in so I can not waste my time going in sunday morning

I reread the first thread and it did say no rebates... for the $14.99 price. I forgot the price and was assuming we were talking about the same thing.

It is always a bad idea to post when you are running a fever

Man I just actually checked for FYEs near me and there's actually one ten miles or so away. I always passed over FYE deals thinking there wasn't one near me. Time to go get all 3 seasons as gifts or for friends or whatever.

I went to check out the local FYE. they had the signs out and they were acting like the sale was already going on. Infact they were all out of them already. They said the next shipment will be on friday. Gee, thanks, that helps a lot. a day or two before the sale ends you get your next shipment..

the best way for the employees to get them is to start it early and buy them up before the customers even show up
