Because they bank on most people not turning in the rebates, haha, like me. I never turn in MIR, even when I had a $30 one that came with my 7950.
Yep it's a slight gamble they take, which probably has about a 50% chance in their favor. Plus it's incentive to move out stock when people perceive good deals. Those prepaid cards are kinda lame though, its not as easy to spend it all as a rebate check. I'm sure that has something to do with it too.
$200 for that amount of gpu power is great though
