SD will never do instant rebate because that would mean 100% of customers would get the deal. The whole point of mail in rebates is that some customers will forget to mail in the information. Of the customers that do, some will fill out a form incorrectly and be denied. SD does mail in rebates on purpose because they know they will only pay out a small percentage of buyers.
It's refreshing to hear someone with your status tell it like it is. Typically, moderators will jump in and defend SD's rebates------ or lack there of. Thank you and repped.

That's actually not true. We do not benefit from declined rebates. The rebate approval rate is always close to 100%. Last round had 98% of approvals. How is it our fault of someone forgets to mail their claim? This is actually an extremely rare occasion. Also, even if you do forget, you get an email reminder saying your documents were not received. If someone submits a wrong paper, they get an email with a link to resubmit and are offered 30 days to do so. These rebates are pretty much bulletproof. If you haven't tried one, you wouldn't know.

Then why not do instant rebates and save headache and overhead?

So if SD gets a $100 kickback per sale and offers a $100 mail in rebate... you are going to seriously tell me that you do not benefit from declined rebate submissions? Companies make millions in profits due to people not completing mail in rebates.

Statistically only about 40% of people redeem mail-in rebate offers. It is called "breakage". The industry banks on people not redeeming. Bloomberg estimated mail-in rebate breakage to provide about $2 Billion in profits to companies. Dell has perfected this to a science with their 90 day promo cards.

If Slickdeals truly cared about passing savings on to consumers, they would do so with an instant rebate and not mail-in.

bccause this is the only way to offer this in such fashion. do you really think anyone here wants to go through all of this? rebate is processed by 3rd party who charges us for both processing and fulfillment, so trust me when I tell you, if there was any other way to get this price, I would chose that.

a lot of your assumptions here are wrong. first of all, we do not get a $100 kickback per say. it's usually a very low %. I do not know what it is, but i am guessing it's MUCH MUCH lower.


that wiki article maybe accurate across all merchants over the last 30 years, who knows and in the end who cares. I am looking at raw data that pertains to our mail in rebates that we do with adorama and dell. the approval rate there is very high. i don't have #'s handy as I have to go through each 1 by 1, but it's at least 95% but most of them, i would think are 97% and higher.


most declines come from late submissions and ordering wrong product or not clicking our links directly.


Now, the cynic in me would not believe a word I read if this was coming from someone who one may inherently distrust as they may think I am biasted. it's true, I am biased, but I am also looking at raw and exact data, and I have no reason to lie to you; for if I did, then dozens of people who had their dell or adorama mail-in rebates denied for some other reason would come here, quote me, and say I am full of crap.

That "low %" kickback that Slickdeals gets is still a guaranteed value. Slickdeals still get that percentage of profit for 100% of sales. Even if you claim approval rates are high, that still does not factor in the percentage of people who dont send in a claim. There is absolute no chance that 100% of people who buy an item, submit a rebate. This is what companies bank on. For each person that forgets, is late, makes a mistake, ect... they turn a profit.

Mail-in rebates are statistically proven to be beneficial to retailers, to the order of Billions in profit per year.

that I don't disagree with. But, if people don't mail in a rebate, then what can we do? They bare making a decision not to do so.

Mail in rebate........ahhh the nostalgia of Tigerdirect. 😆
Yes. Doing five rebates almost every two weeks was a true joy and science. Never denied. Scanned in all doc's after I filled them out. Key point: Highlighted and drew arrows pointing to UPC cutout then taped it down. If someone tries to steal it/remove, the area becomes obvious to tapering at thier location.
date the extra copies to verify when to check online for update. Sometimes, you may need to go for a call in at 4wks, to check status and catch any bs on thier end...like lost info.

**Ever Need a wireless, mouse, USB, dust cannisters, pc cords, enclosure, etc.,.. just reach in the tiger storage box of goodies and bs. It's all free

Easy, offer Slickdeal affiliated instant rebate coupon codes instead of mail-in rebates.

What's the point of "mail in rebates" then ? It's because people either forget or are too lazy. Just spare me the bullshit you just spewed.

Your going to get a lot of opinions of comparisons and how they sound to them but unfortunately none will be able to tell you how they compare/sound to you.
Your comparing two pretty different sounding speakers. I would suggest trying to find somewhere to listen to them.

Any time you mess with SD's income you are asking for trouble. The responses from SD on this thread proves it. You will not get an honest answer from them so don't waist your time. Of course an instant rebate is better, in all cases. Will they do it ?------- No !!

I used to agree with you on rebates a few years ago. The last few times I have used them on SD they were much quicker and easier to use. I love the SD Card I get for the rebate. Makes my Friends Jealous! HA
