Screwed out of $50....

Well... I just got the note from "rebatestatus" telling me that I won't receive the $50 rebate for which I SCRUPULOUSLY tried to send in all the supporting data that was instructed....

If you - like me - don't prefer rebates.... and would like manufacturers to simply CHARGE US WHAT YOUR PRODUCTS ARE WORTH.... and don't make US pay you "full" price... then jump through the hoop to get our over-charge back.... I suggest that you write to your congressman... and/or the Federal Trade Commission... and make known that manufacturers are, in fact, using "rebates" to extract full prices from purchasers by inflicting impossible conditions on receiving the entitled "rebate".

I have sent a few letters to manufacturers, and have gotten "form" answers with the predictable B/S about why rebates are OK.. but not a one that agreed that they are NOT OK... and they are a means by which manufacturers overcharge for their products... they TELL US they're overcharging us... and then laugh at us when we ask them to return the overcharge THAT THEY TOLD US THEY WERE GOING TO RETURN TO US!!!!!!!

God I hate rebates. Fill out the form, make sure you have a copy of your purchase, serial numbers, product numbers blah blah blah. Then the small print says... You will receive your rebate in 12-14 weeks...grrrrrrrr

Real men don't bother with rebates.
