Default Rebate Expires / Price Jump

I just noticed that the card i want ( MSI hd 4870) $30 dollar rebate has expired, i know theres rebates on cards all the time but when do you think i can expect another rebate on this card?

also did anyone see the price go up on the MSI gtx 260 from like 230 after rebate to $399 (on newegg) ?? Whats up with that?
