Feel like you've been ripped off? Non Performance Rebate Dogs. Who let the dogs out... BuildOrBuy Member Comments:
I have heard quite a few people say that rebates just don't seem to
work for them. I know they don't work for me. I do not know anyone
personally who has ever actually received a rebate check on anything they
purchased, and mailed in the rebate application, within the past few
years. I also notice that most manufacturers do not handle their own
rebate programs. Instead, they contract with another company (probably a
"shell" company that can appear-disappear very quickly) to take
care of the rebates. I have assumed they do this for legal protection from
the few consumers who might think of getting a class action suit together.
LeDuc - Subject: Rebates Not Received.
I purchased a Kaser Corp M64-32P Video Card from Fry's on
May 26, 2001. The product had a $25 rebate. Kaser rebate #0513.
LeDuc - Subject: Rebates - Kasser / Fry
I talked to the manager at Fry's and told him my story. He gave me an
in store $25 credit.
