I got up early Saturday and bought my copy of Tiger!! Got a decent price ($109 + tax) at my local Fry's. I haven't gotten enough time to do an install (and wanted to read the early comments), but I noticed for millionth time the software coupons that were included in the box. What are they for? Does anyone know anyone who has been able to use them to get free/discounted software/upgrades? I would say that they were for people to get free OS upgrades, if you got your machine only a few days before a new release, but I tried that twice for different OSs and new machines, so I know that Apple doesn't honor them for that.

Just wondering.

In theory, the coupons are there to get discounts in future upgrades, but lately, they are just paper...
People who suffered MacOS X 10.0.0, like myself, could update to 10.1 paying only the shipping. Since then, I have paid price of market for each new version.

Thanks for the info. Pretty much confirms what I thought. Just for fun, maybe I'll taken them down to my local Apple retail store and see what they say to me!! And by the way, my local Fry's Electronics dropped their price on the retail box version of Tiger to $99 (from $109 in Friday's ad) in today's LA Times!! Price is good through Tuesday, and Fry's has a price-matching policy for changed prices.
