2nd free 8GB sxs by mail?

Ok the camera comes with one 8gb sxs card...I was told that you get a second in the mail... is there a sony website to download the rebate?
When I called Sony they stated that they don't know of this and that as far as they know there is a $150.00 rebate and thats it...
B&H
Armatos
Abel
ect...
All of these dealers stated that you would get a second 8GB card by mail...I called Abel and they had no answer as of yet...

There is a website that you are supposed to register your camera at, but it has gone live yet from what I can tell.

Sony/LA (US) can't register camera via telephone either

I called Sony in LA today (12/10/07) and asked about registering the PMW-EX1 and the SxS card offer. The Sony rep I spoke to tried to register my camera but even she couldn't find the model on her registration screen. She also said that even if I did register it via the phone today, I would still be eligible for the SxS card offer and any rebates Sony offers.

So, the net result as of today is that it is still not possible to register the camera via the web or via a call to Sony (in the US at least) and there is no more information concerning the survey to be able to get the free SxS card.

$150.00 rebate?

p.s. Where did you find out about the $150.00 rebate?

p.p.s. B&H Photo couldn't tell me anything more about registration or the SxS card offer - they said to contact Sony.

Yes, I spoke to Sony about this today.
They said they still don't have the registration for the EX1 ready yet, and that it should be soon.

This is REALLY prolonging the extra 8GB SxS card...............

Yeah, I know ;-( I didn't order an extra card so I only have one right now. Fortunately I'm just learning about the camera so it's not a big deal, I'm not using it on a job at the moment. Of course, having said that, something will come along tomorrow and I'll be unable to resist my urge to use the EX1 ;-)

Ok was on the phone for about an hour with Sony...
The current rebate is here:
https://www.rebate-zone.com/SubmitTe...t&current=true
its $150.00..

Survey link..free card:
http://bssc.sel.sony.com/Broadcastan...xSsurvey.shtml

but when I showed here the survey rebate for the 2nd card.. she put me on hold for awhile.. when she came back she said that I should check the rebate zone in about a week.. it should be up.. so I asked what about the 150.00 rebate, should I do that now she said no because you can only get one...

One is a rebate and one is a survey... well I rather have the card... but something ain't right...

I wonder how much the "cash equivalent" is?

I would rather put that money towards a 16gb card rather than have another 8gb card.

This is strange. In Australia the second SxS card was just supplied with my camera - no questions asked (so to speak).
