I sent my rebate form in on 11/21 and received rebate AMEX card for 400.00 on 12/31. Looks like about a 6 week time frame from when you send the thing in until you receive rebate so long as rebate is sent in correctly.
Used mine yesterday for a tank of gas for the truck. Paid at the pump with no issues even though they tell you not to. It didn't even pre-authorize a charge (Kroger fuel station).
There is a sticker on the card that says it's already activated for use but if you want to use it online, you need to call to register the card. I called but kept getting the run around so I just gave up.
By the way, for those that use Mint.com to track expenses, you can add this card as an account. Search "American Express Gift Card" in the add financial accounts section. Enter your card number and CCV and you're set!
I had to send in a different UPC. Apparently I'm incompetent and sent them the wrong version than what they wanted off my camera. I had to send them in the right one. After waiting about two weeks after sending it in, they updated my status to Audit Complete, and then to Payment Approved about a week later.
That was now about two weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the check in the mail.... Oh well, I can wait for the $400, now that I know I will actually get it! I was worried there for awhile when I saw "Program Violation"!
