Think I've found people worse to deal with than a telemarketer....The people you have to deal with involved in the rebate?? business.
Should have known better,bought a computer with $300 rebate,and it's been a pain.
Any of you been into this?

I chased a $200 rebate promised thru Best Buy for nearly 3 years. Every time I thought of it I would check with them again and never got anything except more mad at them.

I'm on Melanie's team. I aint ever going thru the rebate hassle again.

Yeah, I bought a monitor with a nice rebate, did as asked and sat back and waited. Nothing. Wrote, and got the reply that they didn't have a record of my application. We fired letters back and forth. 7 months went by and I got mad as a hornet, and went on line and found a site where they posted about rebates, good or bad. I fired a new email off to the company, and told them I was giving them 10 days, and then I would be posting my opinion, with proof, on the site. Funny thing, in 2 days I got an email that they had 'found' my rebate forms, and I was now in the lineup for a rebate, but it might take 6 weeks. I knew dang well my opinion would be posted long before 6 weeks, and SURPRISE! Three days later, I got my rebate. I no longer fool with them.

Ha ha! The bait you with re bates. I look for those who dont play that game. I will pay more for things without the shysters in hopes they will have to get a real job..PC World magazine had a bit on this subject awhile back.. Most who wrote in had no love for the rebate offers. They say if you work on it a long time you might get your rebate.What is your time worth?

Don't get me started... I've had to go chasing after rebates for my boss, and once for my dad... never, no never, will I ever have dealings with those people again. They make their money on hoping you won't pursue it, and get huffy if you do.

They hope that you give up i think. I had a $100 rebate comming and i had heard it would be tough to get. I e-mailed them when it was late and told them that i had done everything they asked. And that i wanted my moeny and im NOT going away. I got it a week later. UncleTom
