Want a free printer? Buy an iMac. That’s the message from Apple, with its new Epson printer rebate offer. Between now and July 8, 2001, if you buy an iMac and one of several Epson printers, you’ll get US$69 back. All the details are on
Apple’s Web site.
As it happens, the Epson Stylus Color 580 carries with it a suggested retail price of $69, so you can essentially net that one for free after collecting your rebate check. If a USB-based 1440×720 DPI color inkjet isn’t what you’re looking for and you’d prefer a higher-resolution unit, the rebate offer is also good for $69 back on the Epson Stylus Color 888, 880i and 777i models as well.
There are a few restrictions on the offer — you have to purchase the iMac and the printer either from Apple or from an authorized dealer in the U.S. or Canada. The $69 is provided in the form of a rebate check, so there’s a form you’ll need to fill out after you purchase the equipment to get your money back. And it’s only available for new iMacs — refurbs, used, and demo unit sales are not eligible for this offer.
