Slickdeals Rebate Card Expired

404 52 August 11, 2018 at 05:11 AM
I just noticed that my SD gift card expired last month (shame on me for not setting a reminder). I called card services and was told they couldn't reissue a new card, which is a total bummer since it's $150. For the record, this is a prepaid mastercard with a 07/18 expiration date from one of the Dell Home deals.

Can anyone offer any advice? Is there anything I can do here?

Thanks!

Hi,


For Dell rebates Gift Cards have 6 months expiration time period. Unfortunately once 6 months have passed, the funds expire and we are not able to reissue the card any longer. Sorry about that. We always try to help our community by posting about the expiration period on the OP of every rebate deal as well as on the front of the Gift Card. If you have any other questions regarding Slickdeals Rebates, please feel free to email us at rebates@slickdeals.net.

I am in the same boat. When you purchase the item, part of the consideration is the value of the GC, but unlike a traditional check rebate, you get a GC they can expect will expire. I bet they have a factor for how many will never get used and partially used. Someone is putting that money in their pocket as I can bet Dell paid the money out for the promotion.
