Pinnacle rebate warning I realize this is not a deal however if we are warning of credit cards this is equal rip off
I disagree because the rebate forum is for anything in my opinion that someone needs to send in, if they feel the need to, to get their money back. If someone is having a problem with it maybe it is because they only use rebates to get money from companies. Personally, I just send in what I need. If I have a problem with a particular product, I like to know where I can go to get my money back in a "Love it or your money back" kind of way. I did not realize that the rebate forum was only for making money, I thought that it was to let others know things that they would not already know on their own.

Well I got my checks in record time. BTW I sent in the front page of the manual from Studios previous version.

|w2n||can someone recommend a better more reliable product to edit Panisonic AVCHD files? if you can then i'd buy it instead of Pinnacle 12 (which i'm currently using). I've noticed that after i use the software i need to force my PC to shutdown. I've not had it work successfully without requiring a reboot yet... but it does do a sweet job of letting me edit & convert AVCHD to standard DVD & DivX|

I've done many, many rebates. I got my rejection letter yesterday for Pinnacle for the same reason.........."not a competing product." I've got copies of everything.
It's listed right on the front of the rebate form.

Thanks for the heads up. I am not sure I will spend this kind of time. I have given my side all over the web. They lost a lot more than my rebate at this point. And good ridance to them for it. Adobe is working just slick and was the same price since they screwed me.

I had an Office Depot rebate that had drug on forever. Finally I filed an online complait with the state Attorney Generals' office.
Got a response the next day. Getting the $50 rebate and a $100 gift card. Still not worth the all the time and energy spent on this for the past 18 mo. but I feel a little better.
The state AG complaint seems to get them moving to make things right in a hurry.

so now they paid out on one
I sent them a link to this post and suddenly one of my rebates was approved........... Very interesting.

I have heard similar but it is not the norm. Most have had my experience.
Lucky you. Most have had my experience. IT is not that great a product. Have you tried Adobe, Nero, or Roxios competing products they are much more intuitive.

Weird... I bought Studio 11 from Frys on 5/23, got it a week or so later, submitted both the $40 regular and $30 upgrade rebates, got a confirmation email from Pinnacle, a second approval email, and a check shipped on 7/1 status on their website. That's a record turnaround for a decent product.
Probably dumb luck...
Wasn't that lucky last time when I bought Studio 10, it took me many calls and many months to get my money back, but yes, they eventually sent it. I admit though their customer support was always alright.
Wow I sound weird. Just a different experience, nothing more. Sorry for those who got screwed. Or forgot to read the rebate instructions a few times to make sure they didn't miss a single thing.

Here here BOYCOTT PINNACLE!!
Thanks again slickdealers for your responses. We do have the power to show manufacturers what we think of their customer policies. Granted some bend the rules. this is not one of those cases. Most likely Frys where I bought it would make good for them but it should not be that difficult. The retail shop should not have to make good on a manufacturer rebate that is ridiculous and a waste of time.
