PSA: Newegg Rebate Processor is Belly Up (Resubmit all rebates submitted since May 9, 2018)

Public Service Announcement (PSA):

Received an email today (6/12/2018) from Newegg that 4myrebate.com is closing down immediately. Pending rebates will be processed directly by Newegg. Checks will be mailed in "4 to 6 weeks."

If you want a faster payout and are OK with a Newegg Gift Card, contact them ASAP.

See my next post regarding resubmission of rebates submitted since May 9, 2018.



Original email text:


June 11, 2018

Dear [Customer],

According to our records you have submitted a Newegg In-House Rebate Form for [XX-XXX-XXX] purchased on 03/09/2018. The rebate processing center that was handling our in-house rebates unfortunately notified us this week that it is going out of business immediately. Don't worry! Your rebate will be processed directly by Newegg. We will issue you a rebate check and send it to the billing address listed on your account. If your billing address is no longer correct, please update your account with the correct billing address.

If you would like your rebate much faster in the form of a Newegg Gift Card, we will process it within 3 to 5 business days. Simply reply directly to this email within 7 days of the date above and let us know you prefer a Newegg Gift Card. Once your Newegg Gift Card is processed, you will receive an email with the Gift Card Code and Pin that you can use anywhere on Newegg. Newegg Gift Cards have no expiration date.

If you prefer a refund check, you do not need to do anything. We will continue processing your rebate and you will receive your check in the mail within 4 to 6 weeks.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused, and we want you to know that we value your business and want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive your rebate.

Sincerely,

Your Newegg Customer Service Team

AT THIS TIME, it appears this ONLY affects rebates for Newegg filed with 4myrebate.com.

It does NOT appear to affect SlickDeals rebates, or any other rebates filed with 4myrebates.

The statement from Newegg about the rebate processor "going out of business" appears to only apply to the business component of Afligo/4myrebates that handled Newegg rebates.

If you've submitted a Newegg rebate since May 9th, RESUBMIT IT as instructed below:


https://www.newegg.com/Special/Rebate.aspx

IMPORTANT NOTE: The company handling all of Newegg's rebates has suddenly and unexpectedly gone out of business. If you filled out a rebate after May 9, 2018 we ask you to resubmit your information using the link below. All new rebates will also use this new form. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are determined to make sure everyone gets their deserved savings. Thank you.

Thanks! I did a search, but didn't see that. I must not have looked heard enough.

However, I posted this to "Hot Deals" since a lot of people saw past Newegg rebates in Hot Deals, and could get screwed (or more frustrated) if they don't act on this matter. I've been waiting quite some time for my Nero rebate...and now it will be another 4 to 6 weeks. Some may go for the Newegg gift card.

We all know not all that many pay attention to Deal Talk. Unfortunately.

I received the email from newegg but did not know there was a way to resubmit for the rebate online, thanks for the link. Now it is time for me to dig up all of the rebates I submitted after the 9th

Just called 1-800-286-9146 and spoke with a male staffer there. He confirms that "a rebate center did go out of business," but that the remainder of 4myrebates.com continues to operate.
