4myrebates - call and check rebates not received yet

8,446 2,257 August 24, 2017 at 08:55 AM
I was going through my speadsheet checking on rebates that I haven't received yet.

If you have submitted any rebates from Frys/4myrebates and hadn't received them yet, you might want to call and check on them. I can't believe there were 3 not sent out yet.

These were the 3 mailed back in May/June of this year (all ordered from Frys.com):

Nuance Dragon Basics: Rebate #: NC-NC-5379
Asus RT-N12/D1 Wireless-N300 Router: Rebate #: ASU-14284
Nuance Dragon Home: Rebate #: NC-5380


All of these were approved in early June. They said wait 8-10 week after approval to get the rebate cards. All were past due. I called the rebate center and come to find out they have no record of rebate cards sent out on any of these. They told me to wait 7-14 business days for them to check on why rebate cards were not mailed and for them to ship another. They claim to say they will update the info online when checking the tracking #.

I REALLY dislike rebates.

They hope that you will miss the deadline or not submit properly.

OR

They take so long to send the rebate, they hope you will forget about them and NEVER inquire/complain.

OR they will claim they have no record of the submission.

I never actually count on getting the rebate.

Oh, I don't ever not count on them. If I qualify and if I've done all that was required, I will get that rebate come hell or high water. :-) If they owe it to me, they will pay.

I do quite a bit, not as much as in the past, and I've always gotten paid.

Just now, there is an Acronis True Image, where I filled in the form online because they didn't have the electronic form online yet. I didn't get a tracking since it was a form mailed in. I noticed I never received it from late May submission. I called the rebate company (rebateshq) to get the tracking and there is no record of it.

They are allowing me to send in copies and they will process it. Thank goodness because it was for 50.00.

Lessons learned: Wait for the electronic form to be available so that you have a tracking number.

I just realized I have a dell offer that was approved a bit after that that's over the 5-7 weeks (after approval) still not showing as mailed/shipped. Sent them a message about it too, so far no reply.

they approved my Asus rebates over 3 months ago but never send out the visa cards.

NOW i know for a FACT that 4myrebates is a Scammer and deserves to be punished for ripping people off. I would personal kill the CEO if I could and if it was legal.

You should ban this guy above you, he calls people poor and says he wants to kill people over a rebate, check his posts, specifically the one from amazon gift card at frys, and this post. I haven't checked others but he is a nuisance to this community if 3 out of 4 posts I saw are worthless. Only because he posts so much I feel like he'd get so hurt about it, let's make him cry Wink
