After chatting with a CSR at AA I learned that Airaid explicitly notifies their distributors not to accept these types of coupons when they are offering other deals like the $50 rebate. It's a way for Airaid to control their pricing and ensure they're not getting double dipped.
During conversation with the CSR he did point out that the 20% off would work on the K&N intake. Are there any comparos of the Airaid vs. K&N? I like the idea of retaining the stock rubber elbow, but I do know that the ribs on it are restrictive of airflow as well as a noise reducer (not that I care about that part). Whereas the K&N has a metal replacement elbow included, which I'm concerned would cause more trouble than it relieves due to increased heat soak over a rubber material.
