All of a sudden I'm having some Newegg rebates being denied for different reasons.
Today I get a denial email from Asus (submitted rebate late May) so I look at the reason 'The maximum number of items or claims have been reached for this offer'. I wrote 4myrebates an email stating that I only ordered 1 item from rebate and don't understand why it was denied. I received a response from them stating that it will go before the escalation team and I should hear back in the next few days. There is no reason why that should have been denied.
That got me to check other older rebates not yet paid. I had 2 McAfee rebates that were denied (both submitted in April) yet I never received any type of correspondence from them notifying me of this. I just figured they are usually late sending out checks so didn't check up on them.
The reasoning for those being denied were:
Missing Purchase Location for one of the denied rebates and the other rebate was denied because:
Missing Purchase Date
Missing Purchase Location
I contacted the rebate company and they'll get back to me in 2 business days. Chat is unavailable but will try chat tomorrow or Monday to see if anyone working.
I don't understand why this is happening all of a sudden. I never had issues with NewEgg rebates in the past at all.
I did do a chat with Newegg and they will discuss with rebate company and get back to me.
The only thing I can think of is when looking at NewEgg invoices, there is no mention of the company, Newegg.com at all. No where is Newegg mentioned. Maybe they are getting stricter and wanting the company name on the invoice? This is what Newegg is looking into.
But why all of a sudden are they starting to deny for that reason? I had another that was denied last week for that reason, I believe, and called and they went ahead and approved it.
It's just added hassle. Hopefully these all work out and get approved also.
Anyone else having some issues with rebates being denied? I will start checking up on all outstanding rebates more often because evidently I don't get denial notifications all the time and I'm thinking everything is fine when its not.
