Looks like the coupons are worth 40$ towards converter boxes.

This is for a coupon good for $40 towards the purchase of a digital TV converter box. Please note that this will be of virtually zero interest for those in this forum, as any boxes that are capable of HD output (i.e. have DVI, HDMI, or component ports) do NOT qualify under this program.
The goal of this program is really to defray the cost of purchasing a digital TV converter box for those who have an old TV and can't afford to replace it or get a pay TV service.
Also: the coupons expire 90 days after issuance, so your best bet if you need one is to WAIT until the boxes have been out for a while and come down in price.
