Star Wars - Parker Brothers Mail in Rebate.

Recommended Posts

I'm asking for a collector friend.

 

Were these Star Wars rebate offers only done in Canada, or were they done in other parts of the world?

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for sharing this. I have never seen this piece before. Is the English version on the other side of the form?

 

The dates of the rebate are intriguing. According to Random Terrain's list, the game was released in July 1982; I clearly remember playing it at a friend's house later that year (possibly in October). I wonder if sales were flagging by April 1983, hence the rather substantial rebate (worth about $12 today).

According to my friend the flip side has the English text.

Well, here's a rebate coupon from the U.S. with several games, and Empire is one of them.  I hope this answers your question.

I'd love to know if there was a Star Wars themed cheque from Parker Bros. that came in the mail. I'd love to have one.
