    I fully second the above post. I tried to order Sandisk Extrem 3 cards but nobody seems to be able to tell me if the ordered cards will include the Phase One voucher.
    Providing a proof of purchase should make buyers eligible for th Capture One LE license (provided the card was purchased within the action period).

    Phase One offer is a very good idea but "marred" by a lousy execution!

    Phase One should make a public statement on this issue. Apparently Sandisk is responsible for the implementation but I do not feel like that is any excuse. Even if Sandisk is willing to make good on their offer this is not way to treat consumer.

    In this internet age it is very easy to do things right. So, why did two great companies decide to do it the worst way possible?

    Hello there,

    I want to point a thing out.

    on phaseone.com, the announcement that modelimotion included in his post contained a key element.

    Capture One LE normally retails at $ / € 99. The product bundle is available at SanDisk retail stores.


    Last week I walked into a store (sandisk retailer) and there was a lot of bundle available. As stated on phaseone.com... Retail store... not Internet, not black market, not from a friend of a friend but retail store.

    Cheers.

    I'll let you find them in Switzerland! I visited a couple of "official" Sandisk resellers and they weren't even aware that they were "official" stores. They had no clue about the Capture One promo and on top of that, they priced 2GB cards so high that you can get Capture One LE at €99 + 2GB cards [from an internet shop] for the same price. I visited another official store and pricing was correct [compared to internet shops], but they had no stock of Extrem 3 and didn't plan to order anything. As for the Capture One offer, they didn't know what Capture One was...

    I understand that the situation is probably different in other countries.

    I bought a sandisk card expressly for the offer. I received it and "no Capture one"! So I emailed both companies and got told that it was sandisks responsibility here and when I contacted Sandisk I got " you should buy another card and make sure that the package says that the software is in there". What! How the heck do you do that? So now I'm never going to buy another sandisk product as long as I live. Besides the transcend cards are half the price and work as fast in my D2h's.

    I'm pretty disappointed how this offer has been handled by both sides. More like a scam. To my thinking since I bought a sandisk card after the offer date someone owes me the software. There has to be six months more of cards in the suply chain and it's not likely that you will get the right one.

    Someone dumb thought out - or didn't think out the details of this offer.

    Olivier, thanks for the info.
    I'm already a customer of Profot AG and I also have the list of official Sandisk retailers. Unfortunately, Profot is on the other side of the country (I'm near Geneva) and not really a walk-in store unless I want to spend the whole day on the road. Sending small packages in Switzerland is very expensive (as is everything in Switzerland) and would certainly make Phase/Sandisk's offer a lot less attractive for potential buyers. Profot is a pro dealer and there's very few stores of that caliber in my region, most official retailers are just "standard" camera or consumer electronic shops.

    The point I was trying to make was that they should have implemented this offer in a more user-friendly way... Just like Canon does if you purchase their goods in official Canon stores.

    By the way, I guess you'd be shocked at prices over here, even coming from a so-called expensive country like Canada.
    😄

    PS: I must add that I was trying to get the promo for a friend as I already own a couple of Capture One licenses.

    I totally agree that they could have done a better job.

    I did not know that Canada was a so called expensive country...

    Compared to the US... Probably because of the taxes! Compared to Iceland of even Scotland, Canada seems very "affordable", at least to me.

    Have a good day Olivier!

    I clicked on the Sandisk download versions on the P1 site... looks like they're still posted at 3.7.5, while "regular" downloads have posted 3.7.6.

    I'd like to start on the latest and greatest, and not have the patch to 3.7.6 from 3.7.5 count as one of my upgrades. For the Sandisk deal, can I just activate using 3.7.6?

    For the rest of the folks on the thread... gimme a break. All those online retailers have cheap prices b/c they don't carry any inventory, of course they don't know what's in the packages. I just got the latest catalog from Calumet. They have the Sandisk E3 advertised, along with the P1 deal. That's where I'm gonna get mine.

    Regards,

    Jay

    So I went to pick up a card today, and Calumet in SF doesn't have any in stock with the P1 activation. They had plenty of stock, but none were said to have the P1 activation.

    My understanding is that Sandisk will give you a serial number if you receive a pacakge without the required info. I suggest calling them to confirm that before you place your order and get them to register your call so that you have some advanced documentation before you make your purchase. Thats what I am doing so wish me luck!!!

    I contacted Sandisk to find out how to get a card with the Phase One software, they told me to ask retailers (who don't even know about the offer)...>>>

    Hi Sandisk,
    Capture One LE software is supposed to be offered with new Extreme III cards starting Oct 2006 for a limited time...how do I get this offer? I have read on forums that there is no indication on the packaging if the offer is in any particular package or not. I would like to purchase an Extreme III 2 GB compact flash card with the included software..can I get it in Canada?

    I purchased a card two weeks ago from B&H and the activation key was included. However, you are right...even B&H when I called beforehand did not know about the promo.

    I guess I just got luck because B&H turns over stock frequently. Hope this helps.

    Thats a very poor response to Sandisk. The truth is that they will make good on the offer if you make a purchase and it arrives without the correct package. I dont know why they dont just say that. They have really screwd up the PR on this one.

    For the Record.... In NY At PhotoPlus on November 2,3, and 4...
    Both B&H and Calumet knew about and promoted this offer at their booths and in their show catalogs.

    Consumers should use caution:
    >> Purchase in-person and look for Special Packaging
    >> Callers to retailer that get the Don't Know about it response.
    Call again to get different salesperson, or direct them to Press Release on many many photographer web sites that were first posted on August 31st.
    >> Online ordering is most vulnerable to not getting what you're after

    Sincerely,
    k c

    Well ... I'm pretty peed off - I bought a Sandisk Extreme III last week and the first I know about the offer was the card in the box!

    However ... when I try to download Capture One LE - there doesn't appear to be any way to do it ... you need a log-in, but there's no option to register a login ☹️

    HELP!

    Hii there

    I have just bought an Extreme III 2Gb card from Play.com online which included the Phase One LE deal - it has a little black sticker with Capture One on the box (top right) - nice surprise as I wasn't even aware of the offer - what a wonderful deal, great card, great price, excellent software. They are based in Jersey, not sure about international shipping costs, but it's got to be less than €99.00 that LE would cost....
