Just so that everyone knows, Sony has extended this mail-in rebate offer to March 31, 2011. I had been expecting that they would do this, so I wasn't surprised to learn that they had.
Someone asked me the other day why the HVR-S270U camcorder and Sony's four decks (VCRs), the HVR-M15AU, HVR-M25AU, HVR-M35U, and HVR-1500A, aren't included in this rebate offer. The answer is that I really don't know, especially considering that those models have been part of past rebate offers, but for those who might be interested, it should be noted that B&H is offering a $500.00 Instant Savings on the HVR-S270U until February 28, 2011. This is actually better than a rebate since the $500.00 is taken right off the top at the time of order placement, without the need to mail anything in and then wait for a check to arrive via snail mail.
