i really dont like rebates after you purchase the item they can deny any rebate for any single reason if you read the fine print some of them tell you if you fill out the form in another color ink than the one specified you can get denied. i consider myself lucky that only once i never got my money back and it was a $10 from a motherboard like 3 years ago.

I used to do tons or rebates on tech items, but they are a rare find these days. I always scanned all submitted materials and followed up on any that tried to BS their way out of paying.
I did some kitchen item rebates from JCPenney, but they almost never came even with aggressive followup, so I'm done with them for good.
I'm annoyed that most rebates now come as a prepaid Visa card, which is yet another attempt by the fulfillment houses to generate "breakage" by making it difficult to spend every last cent on the card. I get around that by purchasing a gift card for the full rebate amount on Amazon or Newegg and using it myself, but I'd rather just put the money back in my bank account.
