Good things must come to an end -- Shure 600 MHz rebates

Shure's 600 MHz wireless microphone rebates are scheduled to end on October 31! 

Due to changes at the FCC, operation of wireless microphone systems in the 600 MHz range (frequency ranges 616–653 MHz and 663–698 MHz) will become illegal by July 2020, and in many areas, use of the 600 MHz systems will become impractical due to interference, as soon as 4th quarter 2018. 

Since April 2017, Shure has been offering generous rebates to help you make the conversion from your existing 600 MHz wireless microphone systems to Shure brand wireless systems, but as October 31, 2018, that rebate program will be ending.  More information on rebate amounts, deadlines, qualifications click here

The big question on everyone's minds is whether the rebates will continue or be extended.  The answer is that we have no way of knowing.  Yesterday, when we asked Shure's sales representative about the situation, he said that people "might not want to wait", and that he has no idea what November 1 will bring. 

If we had to guess, some form of Shure 600 MHz rebate will continue since other manufacturer's rebates don't end on the same schedule, but do you want to take that chance?  The current rebate is $500 per channel for ULXD and $250 for QLXD, both of which are more generous than other manufacturers. 

If you're gambling on the continuation, we'll both know an answer on or around November 1.  Also consider than both ULXD and QLXD have been very hard to get this year, so if the rebate is costing Shure "too much", this would be the opportunity to make a change. 

We do not anticipate the rebates being increased, so there's only one direction they can go, if the rebates are not extended in the same amounts. If you need new Shure wireless systems, there has never been a better time than the present.
