These are FREE after rebate at CompUSA
Also, the place offering that deal is a spammer. Please don't encourage them.

First, the pen isn't free. If you want it, they will tell you it's $5.95 or something for shipping or $10.50 if you want the pen and some extra refills. The people that sell it have a PayPal store, are based in Hong Kong and that's where the pen will ship from.
Two, I bought one, using PayPal, and received it. I went to Sharper Image and compared mine to theirs. It's the exact same, except the Sharper Image one is $35 + tax. I use my 4-in-1 pen everyday. It comes default with blue ink barrel, red ink barrel, mechanical pencil barrel and stylus barrel. The two extra refills I ordered were green ink barrel and flouresent pink ink barrel. I use my pen in my classes to take notes in my notebook, marking different sections or definitions in different colors. I switched the red ink out for the flouresent pink ink and use that to highlight important sections in my text.
Third, the CompUSA pen is free after rebate, but is it _NOT_ the same pen. The CompUSA one is pen and stylus only. Plus, it's huge and unwieldly in someone's pocket.
I recommend getting the pen if you need it. Think about how you take notes in class or whatever and decide on it. Personally, I truely use mine everyday.
Not a great deal but I bought one anyway. I used to have a Rotring Quatro Pen (retails for about $40, of course I paid less, but still a lot). I lost the pen last month and was totally bummed. Although it aint no Rotring, this new pen may ease the pain.
Or you could go to your local drug store/student store/ stationary store and buy one of those 4 in 1 Bic pens that have black, blue, green and red ink. I use them and they're great. If you need a stylus, use the back side of the pen, it's got a sort of point-round ball thing on the end. Just a suggestion. They're like $3. This is for the ghetto shopper in all of us.
You can get em pretty cheap here as well and your choice of tips.
I have ordered from here before and they have the same ones everyone else is selling.
Some things to note:
1. 50% Sale (till 8/31) on the S+ 3-Way Original...$8.99
2. New STYLUS+ 3-way "Grip" now available...$7.99 (50% off until 8/31)
3. New STYLUS+ Nitespot now available (use your stylus in low-light condition)
They are really cool, I have the STYLUS+ 4-way Cross Hatch I had picked it up for about $7.95 when it was 50% off a while ago. Nice quality.

of course there's no notice of that BEFORE the survey...so in essence, they just ripped off my demographic info, and got my e-mail address to spam, and then they told me i have to pay 8 bucks....knowing full well that most people wouldn't go for it!
when/where is the free after rebate oen from comp usa
where is the free part, u have 2 pay a whooping 8.95 for shipping and handling. i could understand if they charge 3.99 for shipping and handling. shipping for a pen is not that xpensive.
