MacMerc caught that the Apple Store's "up to 50% discount on
Microsoft Office" promo disappears at the end of this month. The basic rundown is:
rebate form states you can take advantage of this offer on up to 4 Mac Office combinations, but all eligible items
need to be on the same receipt - and what a receipt that will be! One quirky thing about the rebate is that it includes
a two-question survey. The first is "Prior to this offer, were you aware that Microsoft Office runs on a Mac?"
while the second asks if you would still be buying Office or even a Mac if it weren't for this offer. I guess Apple is
checking in on just how vital Office is to Mac users. Preparation for a new run with a (hopefully) updated iWork '06?
In a mere five days we'll hopefully have an answer.
