Do you mean the rebate isn't worth it or ADS-B isn't worth it?
The rebate doesn't cause the multiple flights. Taxed or not, getting the rebate puts more money in your pocket than not getting it.
But if you're referring to ADS-B, you're right. There isn't enough money in the rebate to make me get it if I weren't planning to, or enough to affect the timing of my install.
