"This is an upgrade rebate for previous Quicken users". The Rebate will only imply for people currently using Quicken.

I bought Quickbooks with a similar rebate. They have a list of things that can be proof that you owned an older copy of Quicken. One of them was just a photocopy of the orignal CD. So really anyone who has it can scan you a copy of the original CD.
Hope its the same for your Quicken.

Calng and others,
Never mind...I created my own best deal (I think). I went to Staples.com, found the same CD with the $20 manu. rebate offer for $49.95. By adding some construction paper for $5, I got the free shipping, used the $20 off of $50 coupon and will get the $20 Quicken rebate (because I have an older version of Quicken). Even without that rebate, the cost is just over $30 (depending on what you use at Staples.com to go over the magic $50 mark).
For me, total cost should be ~$15 when all is said and done. Not too shabby, eh?

I need to get a copy of Quicken Deluxe 2000 and found a $20 rebate offer at beyond.com ... makes the total purchase $39.99 plus shipping.
Does anyone know where I can get a better deal than that?

Okay, at cyberrebate.com, Quicken 2000 is 'rebate' priced at 39.99 with free shipping (I just have to pay the $89.99 'original' price and wait for my $50 rebate from them).
If that box also came with beyond.com's Intuit (manufacturer) rebate sticker on the box for $20, that would bring the total price to $20 free shipping. But, that's chancy. Looks like the best I've got guaranteed is still $40 no shipping.
The gauntlet has been thrown down! ;o)

You might want to check with your local bank or credit union. My credit union just got their online banking working with Quicken 2000 and they are giving away free copies of Quicken 2000 Deluxe to their members.
I noticed during installation that there was mention of "if you received this software from your financial institution". I think Intuit is doing some promotion with banks to distribute Quicken to bank members, perhaps to try and squeeze out Microsnot Money users.
