Apple: new iPods announced on September 5, 2007 are NOT eligible for the Back to School promotion
"Please be advised that Apple announced new iPods on September 5, 2007. These new iPods are not eligible for the Back to School promotion. Rebate claims submitted in conjunction with these products will not be honored."
"Along with the new iPod launch, Apple reduced the price on the prior generation iPods — the ones that are eligible for the promotion. This impacts the promotion rebate amount.
"For all iPods purchased and invoiced, as part of the promotion, on or before the September 5, 2007 announcement, qualified purchasers are eligible for a rebate of $199, the list price of a 4GB iPod nano. For all qualifying iPods purchased and invoiced under reduced pricing, customers are eligible for a reduced rebate amount. The new amount is $149, the new list price of an iPod nano. Customer rebate claims will be calculated based on verification of invoice date and verification of price paid for a 4GB iPod Nano. Larger capacity iPod nano and iPod units will be eligible for a $149 rebate."
