Microsoft wireless products Staples through 4/19. These were on sale at OfficeMax last month.

Base station 494291 $79.99-$20 Staples rebate - $20 MS rebate
Notebook adaptor 494295 $59.99 - $10 Staples Rebate - $10 MS rebate
Desktop USB adaptor 494293 $59.99 - $10 Staples Rebate - $10 MS rebate

The original poster said that all 6 of the rebate forms printed at register for store purchases.

Use a $30 off $150 (there's a printable one for store purchases.)

$79.99 + 59.99 + $59.99 = $199.97
Less $30 coupon = $169.97
less $80 in rebates = $89.97

Thanks to dell8200 at FW for the post I cannibalized.

sounds good but not sure about the rebate for the wireless router..

on the staples online form it says:

2) Tape your original receipt or packaging invoice and the UPC symbol from the back of the product packaging. You will need to put everything in an envelope.

and on the microsoft rebate form it says:

3. Enclose proof of purchase from each Microsoft Broadband Networking Product you just acquired, as indicated above. Eligible forms of proof of purchase include: product box top, with the product name and barcode clearly identified from the product.

are these two different things? or does the wireless router box have a UPC symbol and seperate bar code on the box? :) good deal if this works!

Does the MN-500 Router run at 2.4Ghz? I have the D-Link 650 notebook card and it says it runs at 2.4Ghz, but the Microsoft Router doesn't say anything about it being capable of running at 2.4Ghz. What frequency does the router run at? Would I be able to use that D-Link card with the microsoft router?
