Brother are currently a running $100 cashback promo for selected printers.
Combined with The Warehouse Stationary 30% off printer promo, you can get:
* HL3150CDN = $109 after cashback
* HL3170CDW = $144 after cashback
* MFC9140CDN = $319 after cashback

Brother cashback promo ends this month.
Warehouse Stationary promo ends this Sunday.

All printers are lasers, do colour printing, have auto-duplex, and networkable (10/100 ethernet). The HL3170CDW is wireless. The MFC9140CDN is a multifunction unit.

Note: Brother warranties are basically 3 years (unless you use non-Brother consumables)


EDIT: Forgot to mention they're also colour lasers

Thanks for that - picked one up. Of course as the cost of any of the toner refills is more than the $109 I paid for the printer, maybe I should have bought a couple of extra printers for when the toner runs out.

I hate all "cashback" promos.
I have fallen for this trick three times - in each case I had to fill out an intrusive questionnaire/customer survey, and the cash back never came, despite reminders.
These three companies lost my business for ever.
I won't make this mistake a fourth time.
Has anyone else had similar experiences?

I bought a Brother DCPJ4110DW printer last month from Warehouse Stationery for $179.00.  With $100 cashback, total cost was $79.  The cashback was paid directly into my bank account within 5 days.  I have never tried to use a cashback promo before, so based on my one experience, am very happy with it.

You should be aware that both laser and inkjet printers come with "Starter" cartridges, which are only partly full.

Got my $100 Cashback from Brother without any issues at all, from memory sent/received within a 2 week period.

Like the others who have responded to this, I have claimed twice with Brother and they paid within a week of submitting it.  Looks like Brother are aware of the public's skepticism and are willing to commit:

Yup, if you look on the side of the box it tells you this, though they don't exactly do much to draw your attention to it.  IIRC the cartridges it comes with are good for 1000 page vs 2500 for the full ones. But don't they sell the cartridges individually? Haven't done the math but it might still be worthwhile buying the whole printer (after cashback) just for the cartridges it comes with...?

I did exactly that with the 3040CN a year or so ago.  Starter cartridge yield is 1000 pages for each colour,  replacement colour cartridges yield 1400 pages each (except black at 2500).  Buying a second printer at $135 just to have spare toners was a no-brainer.

Might be a bit different for the printers above, the 3150 replacement cartridges do 2200 by the looks.

While it took ~6 weeks(and a out of the blue phone call to check my provided account details were still correct) I had no issues with the canon cash back

I thought they probably came with starter toner cartridges, but approx 1000 pages isn't too bad. As floydbloke said, it would definitely make more sense to buy another printer @$109 to print 1000 pages rather than spending over $400 for the four 1400 page CMYK cartridges - I remember this being the case with inkjets, but hadn't realised it now applied to lasers as well.
