    From a European user: What's Rebate? (I will not buy it, nice price but customs kill me)

    Basically you fill out a form (which you download a PDF of or get delivered with the PSU) then send it to the manufacturer. Then if the stars are aligned correctly and all the info is accurate and easily readable on the rebate form, the manufacturer sends you the stated amount of money after one to three months from the date the rebate form reaches them.

    Most manufacturers do their best to decline your rebate based on petty qualms regarding the way the form was filled out and sent...
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Hasn't happened to me yet. And other people in my family buying non-tech related stuff, they seem to get their rebates all the time.

    If people screw up their rebate that's their own fault.

    It was a lot worse in the past; Sapphire (the GPU company, along with a few other AMD AIB parters) used to use an awful 3rd party rebate service where this happened all the time.

    Some companies have been consistently good about rebates for years (Corsair, EVGA, Cooler Master), but they've always been the outliers.

    Those rebates are illegal to use here in Scandinavia because of consumer protection laws, so we have to rely on instant rebates here. They can be just as good (or better, once I got a Silver Power 500W PSU at a 90% instant rebate), but they last a very short time in comparison to MIRs. (from 1 day to perhaps max a week).

    Rig 1: Core i5 6600K - Asus Z170 Pro Gaming - Corsair Vengeance 16GB PC2666 RAM - MSI GeForce GTX1070 - Samsung EVO 850 500GB SSD + 2TB Seagate SSHD - Corsair RM550x - Fractal Design R5 - Win10 64

    Rig 2: Ryzen 1700X @ 3.9 GHz - Gigabyte X370 Gaming 5 - Corsair LPX 16GB PC3200 RAM - Gigabyte GeForce 1070 - 250GB Samsung EVO 850 SSD - Corsair RM650i - Win10 64
    HTPC: AMD A6-6400k - MSI FM2-A75IA-E53 mITX - 8GB Kingston HyperX 1866MHz - 3.5TB storage - Silver Power 460W passive - CM Elite 120
