AKG USA Extends 700 MHz Rebate Program Through September 2010

by Jacob Coakley

NORTHRIDGE, CA—AKG has extended its 700 MHz rebate program an additional three months to end on September 30, 2010. The program—which went into effect on March 1, 2010—allows owners of any manufacturer’s old 700 MHz system to trade it in and receive a cash rebate following the purchase of a new AKG non-700 MHz band, FCC compliant wireless system, or components that comprise a system.

The program extends to any level of any manufacturer’s 700 MHz wireless product as a trade-in against the rebate amount of a new AKG wireless system, and users can group components together to assemble their own eligible wireless system. Along with the WMS40 Pro, WMS40 Pro Dual, WMS40 Pro Flexx, and WMS450 systems, users can group either the SR4500 single channel receiver or DSR 700 2-Channel digital receivers with the PT4500, HT4500, DPT700, or DHT700 transmitters, but the purchase must include at least one receiver and at least one transmitter. Additional transmitter rebates may be offered if the transmitter purchases were made in connection with the receiver purchase, and there is a corresponding trade in transmitter for every transmitter-rebate request.

“After seeing the positive effect that our rebate program has had on our customer’s ability to upgrade their systems, we decided that everyone would be better served if it was extended,” said Joseph Wagoner, product manager, Wireless/Tour/Install, AKG. “We’re dedicated to ensuring that our customers receive the best possible service, even after they have purchased our equipment, and extending this program allows us to provide them with exactly that.”

Interested parties can download the rebate documents here (http://www.akg.com/mediendatenbank2/psfile/datei/13/700MHz_US_4bc4338aa5955.pdf ). Once accessed, users must fill out the documents according to the products they are trading in and submit them along with the trade-in unit, the original UPC label from the new product and a copy of the purchase receipt. The program allows users to receive a rebate of up to $500 on the purchase of a new system, and up to $750 on purchase of a combo system.
