Hmmm... potato -- tomato. I disagree that it's like a rebate, which is (eventually) money in the bank. It's a gift card to one store. If I shopped Newegg more, I might have been more inclined to go for it. Enough people saw value in it, though. The deal is sold out.
It's certainly an interesting option when compared to the folks who are going for refurbished models sold by Dakmart. Instant discount on refurbished vs. paying more out of pocket initially (for a brand new product) but to have the money come back to you in other ways, some of which require more leg work for you:

If you bought it, enjoy it!
