Intuit will offer the Windows version of QuickBooks Pro 2009 for free at all Staples stores on Monday, Dec. 22, for one day only.
The offer works like this:
- The regular price at Staples is $199.99.
- The customer will receive $40 in instant savings.
- The customer at the store will receive a $159.99 mail-in rebate form.
- When the customer mails in the rebate form they will receive, some weeks later, a rebate for $159.99.
- Once the customer obtains the rebate, their base costs are zero: $199.99 – $40.00 – $159.99 = $0.
- The buyer may still be responsible for sales tax at the time of purchase; sales tax is not free.
