Lightspeed Aviation's upgrade and trade-up options are midway through their 2008 rollout. Option A is a direct rebate program that allows you to upgrade your existing Lightspeed headset for a new Zulu for varying percentages of your original investment.
The 30/3G and 20/3G trade-up program offer, with a cost to you of $350 and $450, respectively, is available when you mail in your original headset. The XL series (25XL, 20XL and 15XL/Mach 1 series) rebate will roll out in October 2008, with a $550+ headset cost. The program for all other Lightspeed headsets will also go live in October, with a $650+ headset price tag. When the rebate form, your check and old headset are received by the company, your new Zulu headset will be shipped.
If you don't want to wait, Option B is available right away. You buy the Zulu headset first, download and fill out the rebate form from the company's web site, and mail a copy of your proof of purchase and your old headset to the company. As the program's launch approaches, they'll contact you with further details. This rebate option applies to any Lightspeed brand headset, with the exception of reconditioned and OEM headsets.
