Slickdeals Rebates and Dell.com - $45 mail-in rebate -- Problems...

Kepp 6 10 January 28, 2016 at 07:22 AM More Dell Small Business Deals
When considering whether to sign up for this substantial SlickDeals Rebate, I saw some negative feedback out there but no red flags so I went ahead with it and am tracking:
  • Tues 1/19 @ 5pm - Paid $80.55 on Dell.com for Logitech combo
  • Tues 1/19 @ 6pm - created Claim for $45 mail-in rebate
  • Thur 1/21 @ 1pm - UPS delivers to IA - faster than Amazon Prime 2-day shipping. Impressive, Dell.com
  • Thur 1/21 @ 5pm - cut out UPC and mailed-in with rebate form and invoice.
  • Thur 1/28 @ 6am - got an email "Claim Received" with link to a nice status page. Screenshot attached to this post.
  • Sun 1/31 @ 6am - got an email "Claim Rejected" due to invoice
  • Mon 2/1 - Updated feedback with this NEGATIVE below
  • Mon 2/1 - Searched forum to figure out the monkey business for jumping through the hoop. Turned out to be requesting a specific invoice from Dell that otherwise is not shared with you. When I first tried to request it I received an error. When I tried later I was able to print the invoice and save as PDF.
  • Mon 2/1 - Got special invoice from Dell, printed, sent second envelope.
  • Sat 2/13 - Received Confirmation email, "Rebate Processed" to be mailed in 5-7 weeks.

Addt'l thoughts:
* Currently waiting to receive $45 mastercard.
* Rebate stated it would expire in a few days. If committing to a rebate worth a Ulysses then expect stringent deadlines to filter people out.
* I was given a $25 dell.com promo that was about to expire. $80 - $45 rebate - $25 promo card = $10 for a nice wireless mouse and keyboard to give.

What started as a positive feedback thread was indeed premature.

^ I followed every instruction and definitely included the Dell.com invoice that I had to armwrestle the printer for.

My $150 rebate for Yamaha DGX-650 got denied on completely bogus reasons:

Your Rebate was not approved for the following reason(s):

- Invalid Retailer - The retailer provided is not eligible for this promotion. - Required Documentation missing-Address Validation- Rebate form address must match billing/shipping address

HERE's the kicker:
However, the rebates sponsoring manufacture/reseller has authorized us to offer you one additional opportunity to resubmit for this rebate claim. There is only one exception to resubmitting, and that is, if your rebate claim was denied due to being outside of the allowable time frame, then unfortunately you are not eligible to resubmit.

I would like to GLADLY report that once I contacted them,they accepted focus camera as legit retailer and had me submit couple of forms again.

So we will wait to see what happens.. if they accept it or not.

ICONIAN: Thanks for your offer to help.

they told me the rebate was approved. the issue was with your payment form. it doesnt say focus camera... but if you look closely, it does on the margins.


can you double check?
