San Diego, Calif., April 27, 2009 -- iZ3D Inc., designer, developer and pioneer of advanced stereoscopic 3D visualization systems, has expanded the scope of its rebate program. Previously the $50 rebate, which was exclusive to AMD ATI Radeon® Graphics Card customers, now includes NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics card customers as well. NVIDIA or AMD customers that purchase an iZ3D monitor simply register their purchase online or mail in required rebate documents.
“We’ve had great response to our $50 iZ3D monitor rebate from AMD customers and an equally strong chorus of requests for the same discount from NVIDIA customers that prefer to have the 3D technology inside the display instead of inside active glasses,” states David Chechelashvili, VP Marketing for iZ3D, Inc. iZ3D’s approach to 3D places all the 3D technology in the monitor so that users need only wear passive polarized glasses. This enables more participants at a significantly lower price to enjoy 3D in ambient-lit rooms without headaches, fatigue, or eyestrain.
The current rebate offer runs through June 15, 2009 making an iZ3D gaming display solution even more affordable for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or as a graduation present. Rebates can apply to purchases online at iZ3D.com or at any retail store or authorized iZ3D online reseller. Terms and conditions apply.
iZ3D has also added new features to its website including a rebate center where visitors can check for current offers and discounts.
“We value our 3D customers and want to make their iZ3D experience as satisfying as possible. Since our website outage we have been improving our website while preparing totally new web experience based on customer feedback for release this summer. Our goal is for our website to provide a 3D experience where consumers can get immersed in 3D through education, experience, purchasing, support, and socialization. We are also diligently working to provide cutting-edge customer service,” said David Chechelashvili, VP Marketing for iZ3D Inc.
The new iZ3D“3D Bucks Rebate Center” provides a listing of all available rebates.
