Slickdeals Rebate Scam

13 23 January 26, 2017 at 12:32 PM
There was a Black Friday deal on the SlickDeals homepage for purchasing a TV from Dell and getting a $50 gift card back. So I purchased the Dell TV and submitted the rebate. I got the confirmation link (https://slickdeals.4myrebate.com/...?zip=xxxxx) that stated they received my rebate and everything is great so far. Well after awhile I started to wonder where my rebate was, so I checked the link again and noticed it was declined. There was another link (https://slickdeals.4myrebate.com/...ber=xxxxxx) to my documentation that I submitted. So I decided to email them and ask them why it was declined. I received no reply after 5 days so I emailed them again, another 4 days pass and still no reply. I feel this is a huge scam by Slickdeals to deny everything and hope no one makes a fuss about it. I uploaded my documentation to Imgur for proof that I provided all the necessary documentation for the rebate, yet was still denied.

Here is a link to the documentation [imgur.com]

Call them and do not give up. 4myrebate likes to play games with people. I've gone through the same where they told me my rebate was invalid when it was done correctly.

I had a similar issue because I shipped to my work address so the kids wouldn't see their present show up at the door. Invalid because my billing address was different than my shipping address. No reply when I tried to contact them either.

I have also sent documents, but status is declined, because document not received within valid timeframe.

Looks like the rebate was only valid on 11/26. The Dell order date was 11/25

I got the same deal/rebate. TV from dell, sent it documentation, it was approved. I have a tracking number but have not received the rebate. I've emailed to see what that tracking number pertains to, UPS, USPS, FedEx and have heard nothing.

I did two rebates for the Dell laptop deal: both were received on 12/16 and approved on 12/22 & 12/24 but no updates since then. Is it supposed to take this long to send out?

It usually takes 8-10 weeks from the time your rebate was approved for your gift card to be processed, issued, and sent out to you. If you have any other questions you can always email us at rebates@slickdeals.net.
