Newegg has a case that is $100 USD, but with a $100 MIR (mail in rebate)! So, you pay for shipping and the case is free!

[here]

Also, this USB card reader is also free after the MIR.

Then, if that isnt enough you can get this USB MP3 player for $10.99 after the MIR!

[here]

The case doesn't seem that great, but hey it will be worth reselling ;)...

What is MIR exactly.. Looks a bit shady to me
Is this US only?

MIR are US only and you just have to read all the requirements etc.

I generally stay away from mail in rebates. Some vendors are known to pretend your forms got lost in the mail. Since the rebate process usually involves sending original documents, or UPC barcodes, you're given little recourse if they try to pull a fast one. The only way to avoid it is certified mail.

That's not to say this isn't a good idea. Just be sure to do some customer review homework on the vendor.

Also after studying datamining you may not want to disclose that information to a company for a measly $100.

Still, for the price its pretty good ... plus some people do like those kinds of cases (to take to lan's and stuff). I like my goold old beaten up baige case however :).

Those are some good deals, as long as the mir is legit.
