The rebate offer isn't working for me.  Says it can't find the "rebate offer number (08-59261.)  I filed a trouble ticket with them.

Just got this in an e-mail:

" We did not receive the UPC for Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2009. Please send it to: ATTENTION RESUBMISSIONS, PO BOX 028540 Miami, FL 33102-8540."

Awesome.  I of course included the UPC with the shipment.  I even have the box with the UPC cut out.
