Newegg rebates. How long are they taking to process? (4myrebates rebates)

I've sent in a few and kept copies of what I submitted to Newegg but have no way of knowing if they are still in process, lost or what.

I sent mine in June 22.

I should have waited a few days. I have 3 checks coming in the mail today according to USPS Informed Delivery Digest. Two of checks should be multiple of 3 purchased (rebates) so hopefully they didn't just pay me for one of them.

Which ones are you referring to? The ones you submitted to 4myrebates before Newegg said they went OOB? or the ones you resubmitted with the Newegg form after they went OOB?

I have on my calendar to follow up on my rebates submitted after June 9th. Like most people, June 9th seems to be the cut-off where Newegg needed more time to (re)process what was sent to 4myrebates

6-4 Rebate: NEW-12305 - submitted form to Newegg 6-22 (purchased 3 Syba PCIe SATA III 2.0 Controller Cards @ 9.00 ea so should get 27.00 check.

5-28 Rebate: NEW-12281 - submitted form to Newegg 6-22 (purchased 3 Syba SY-ENC25055 USB 3.0 USB 3.0 to SATA 2.5" Hard Drive External Enclosures @ 10.00 ea so should get a check for 30.00.

Each of these I submitted to 4myrebates and received tracking but they never processed any further so submitted both to Newegg using their form.

I'm really not sure what the 3rd check is unless it's for the EVGA power supply I purchased 7-17 but I doubt it.

ETA: Ok, got my 3 checks.

Instead of receiving 3x9.00 for the PCI cards, I received 2 checks for 9.00 each.
Instead of receiving 3x10.00 for the enclosures, I received 1 check for 10.00

When I submitted the forms, I put 27.00 (3x9.00 qnty), why would they just pay me 2 check of 9.00 each?

And why only pay me for 1 of the enclosures when clearly it states on the form 30.00 total (3x10 qnty).

Do they not look at your order to see what was purchased? Between the order and rebate form it's a mystery what they did. I don't understand their thinking.

I called and the girl told me to email mir@newegg.com and let them know. I'm so tired of sending this and that and wasting my time. Why don't they just get it right the first time? errrrrrrrrrr

Unfortunately, that is the peril of rebates. They make you jump thru hoops and see how much patience you have. Most people would've given up.

That's why I have always defended 4myrebates. You always had a confirmation every step of the way and the 1-800 got you a rep without having to wait longer than 2 mins.

Contrast that to Newegg rebate processing and it's all a black hole where nothing is communicated and referred to another dept.

But regardless the headache, I am sure many SDers will continue to jump thru the hoops for future rebates when they come along despite the headache. We'll all just come on the forum to vent and do it again the next go round.

haha. I'm called them again and right now on hold. Hopefully this guy can give me a better answer. I'm a bit pissed. It's a time zapper. It makes no sense what they did. Why not just pay me the full amount at one time? Why break it up like that?

I will get the full amount due me. I don't just give up but it's a pain in the arse to have to fight for it.

I'm sure you will. I said "most" people. You're an exception.

BTW, what number are you calling in case I need to call in 2 weeks?

I'm still on hold.

I called 888-863-1688.

This guy is telling me that the last 9.00 check was requested on the 7th of Aug. Do what? That's crazy and makes no sense. I requested the full amount on one rebate form that was submitted on 6-22.

Guy said the last of my 2/10.00 checks he'll have to check on and email me back about either tonight or Monday. lol I'm not going to hear back from him. I know how this works.

I really don't know how they are keeping track of any of this mess but I'll stay on their butts until I'm paid.

well, I got all my checks today that were approved by 4myrebates in the beginning of June including the $225 one. All checks were correct and match the quantity purchased. So the fiasco is over for me.

Funny, didn't get an informed delivery digest in the morning but found them in the mailbox in the evening. So a nice surprise.

Good luck to all!

I am still waiting. I have 5 rebates, not too much, $34.96.

06/22, got 5 emails with "Important Information Regarding Your Newegg In-House Rebate". Asked me to reply within 7 days if I want gift cards instead of checks.

06/25, I replied each one to let them know I want Newegg gift cards.

I got nothing after 10 days, I sent them an email and a representative asked me to fill the form on https://promotions.newegg.com/new...index.html after getting order information. I did and the representative told me "No further action nor documentation is required. Please allow 3-5 business days for your Gift Cards to arrive via email".

2 days later, that representative sent me an email: "Checks have been issued, and unfortunately we would not be able to issue out gift cards. They have been sent by mail and are expected to arrive within 4-6 weeks".

So.....I did reply emails within 7 days and they refused to give me gift cards.

It's been a month and I am still waiting those checks......

Were they at least approved on the 4myrebates side beforehand? I think you should be seeing them any day now. By end of next week, latest. Good luck.

Well, it's been over 8 weeks and still waiting on parts of some (only paid 1 when purchased 3 and qualify for 3) and the whole rebate on others. This is getting old. I try emailing mir@newegg.com but you might as well be emailing in the wind. They do not respond no matter how many times you send an email. Calling, they have no idea where it is or how to track it or what's going on...a bunch of well it may take a bit longer, let me call you back, be patient and give us a call back by such and such. So glad I don't order much from them anymore.

Well, there have been very few FAR Newegg rebate deals posted lately to even order from. But when/if they do get posted, I am sure the conga line will start up again.

I'm still waiting on those rebates I submitted to Newegg on 6-22-18 via their link. These were originally submitted earlier to 4myrebates. Anyone else's taking that long? It's not like you can call to get a status because they have nothing to reference them by and will only give you canned answers to satisfy you for that day. They never check on them. They just tell you to wait 4-6 more weeks. I'll give it another week or so before I make a stink. This is getting old.

Nope. Keep at it. I'm sure it'll come eventually. Probably explains why Newegg has so few FAR deals now. Still working the backlog.

Luckily, I have no outstanding rebates with any retailer at this point. The very last one was for the EVGA PSU rebate back on July 20th and that just arrived last week.

I think I'm gonna suffer from rebate withdrawal symptoms soon if no decent Newegg rebates get posted. LOL.
