I didn't see if it was a mail in rebate or an instant rebate.
If it is instant..........no problem.
If it is mail in............you may have to make quite a few follow up phone calls and/or emails to find out where your money is.
Companies that offer mail in rebates are notorious about not sending out a rebate check until they are hassled about it for a while.
A large amount of people will buy something because of the offered rebate. They will send the form in and then forget about it after a couple months.
Companies count on this. It is just another way of making more money off of the consumers.
They figure that if you bug them a couple times and then forget about it..........they still make the money that you have just lost.
If you keep hassling them about it then they eventually will send a check to you.
I have had to do this quite a few times.
Again, if it is not an instant rebate, I would count on a MINIMUM of 12 weeks before seeing ANY kind of reply.
Quite a few of the ones I have dealt with say you will receive a check in eight to twelve weeks (they are counting on you forgetting about it in three months time). I start calling on the twelfth week and call at least twice a week until I have received a check from them.
Are you able to go four or five months without that $400?
I am all about rebates. I have no problem with them. I also understand EXACTLY how the mail in crap works. I push them on it and have never had a problem with EVENTUALLY getting my money. Sometimes are harder than others.
I would much rather go to my grave not needing my gun, than go there wishing I had it.
