Shure’s $50 Bluetooth Upgrade Mail-In offer ends 4/30/20

If you don’t hate mail-in rebate with the passion of one million burning suns, and if you are into the Shure ecosystem, their Bluetooth cable upgrade offer expires on April 30 in 2020.

Now before I continue, I should point out that I do not know whether this is or will be impacted by the Corona delays, so keep that in mind.

Anyway, the offer is this: if you have an existing Shure in-ear with the Bluetooth 4.1 cable, AND you purchase a Shure in-ear with a bluetooth 5.0 cable, then you can submit a mail-in rebate (details on what to send and where at the aforelinked page) and after 8-10 weeks you will receive a $50 mail-in rebate.

This offer includes the previously mentioned Shure SE-215 SI Wireless which go for $79.

PS: if you have the Shure SE-112 which does not have a detachable cable, you’d have to send the whole thing. For the other older SE in-ears with a detachable cable, you only send the bluetooth cable, you keep the in-ears and everything else that came with it.
