    Attn Moderators, if this is the wrong area or inappropriately reposted, please correct.

    Kodak is offering a $5 rebate on the purchase of 5 rolls of T-MAX 100, Plus-X, Tri-X, T-MAX 400, T-MAX P3200 and HIE.

    http://kodak.com/global/plugins/acrobat/en/professional/promotions/2007Q1/bwFilm5Rebate.pdf

    Fine print states the rebate is for roll film only (5 individual rolls or a pro-pack) and NOT for sheet film. Doesn't specifically say you can't mix and match to get the five rolls.

    No one's complained yet about this? Come on people, we know you want to.

    Regards, Art.

    Art,

    Okay, here ya' go.

    Apparently this offer has been around since Dec. 8, 2006 and yet we're only hearing about it now!

    How come YOU didn't tell us sooner? :D

    Actually this is nice news - since I've got the film UPCs but not the receipts I've got to get "creative" to get my Mr. Lincoln. :wink:

    Sure, I threw away 30 boxes of film from china. I knew I should have kept it.

    Dangit!

    The fine print on pg. 2 of rebate form says "Copies of redemption order form or proofs... not accepted" Guess we will have to find an original form to mail ?

    Hm, I got my hopes up when I saw the "/global/" in the URL of the rebate action, but alas... This rebate is far from global :sad:

    Guess I'll continue supporting Ilford, then. :tongue:

    I just bought 250 rolls of Tmax100, too bad it's only one rebate per household :sad:

    So you can only get one $5 rebate? What a waste of time!

    Curious.

    TXP 320 shows up in the graphic, but I don't see any mention of there being a rebate on it.

    Waste of time? It takes about 3 minutes to address the envelope, fill out the form, stuff the envelope, stamp and seal the envelope. Lets see that comes to a rate of $100 per hour. :tongue:

    I still pick up pennies found on the ground. It's not a $5 rebate, folks... it's only $4.61 (we pay the postage)... but you can bet that I'll be requesting rebate after my next buy of Plus-X!

    Sorry to see as artists your time is worthless.

    I must apologize, my ego won't let me work for free. :smile:
