That is only 1 of the reasons I don’t do rebates anymore. Look for more of this kind of stuff to happen. :a

I cashed a corsair and D-link rebate both today …n/p


#4

I just recieved a 10.00 rebate from Corsair on a 16GB Corsair Voyager Flash Drive that I bought on Newegg for 29.99. It came in less than 2 weeks.

I’ve been waiting for 2 months for my rebate from MSI, but MSI isn’t listed as a customer for CPG. The rebate center I sent my forms to was in El Paso, TX I think.

My rebate has been “approved”, but that is all I can get out of MSI. Oh well, 8 to10 weeks has been common in the past when I’ve dealt with rebates.

Yup, haven’t screwed around with MIR rebates for almost 2 years now, so I am good.

Kudos to Newegg. Just another reason they are my fav…


#10

I’ll never do rebates again either, the last one I did took 4-1/2 months to get.

:cool::cool:

Geez, I sent in a rebate for a Corsair power supply over a month ago. I just checked their website. WTH! :a It said it was rejected & I should receive the notice by Dec. 18, 2008. :Z

Hi

I hope that the whole MIR industry will die. I have never lost or have had any kind of trouble with my MIR’s. It’s just been a pain in the a**.

I have not done that many of them, but some have been a really good deal.

Go green and save the forrest. Kill the MIR’s and go Instant rebate instead.

My 2 cents

My check was a Corsair check not a third party rebate center check. It cleared perfectly.:cool: Maybe cause it was only 10.00USD.:bigsmile:

Also, I just got a $15 check from Evga that was handled through Parago. Haven’t heard any horror stories about Parago in this round, so I deposited it. Hope it’s OK.

I’m waiting for a NewEgg/Corsair rebate… :frowning:


#16

I bought an MSI GeForce 9600GT from newegg in January, and finally received my rebate today, from MSI themselves.


#17

Should I feel any better if I’m waiting for a rebate card and not a rebate check, on Corsair memory. Rebate card seems to be handled by Citibank (Visa)


#18

Its all fraud
how does a company that does’nt own the rebate money go broke?


#19

Recently I had to sent two $50 rebate one for my son and one from me to T-Mobil for purchasing upgrade phones, to my surprised instead of receding two $50 check I have receive to $50 VISA Card. I wonder if anyone has experienced these type issues for the rebates.

:eek: Acks! Funny you mentioned that because this afternoon I received in the mail a Corsair rebate as well in the form of a $20.00 VISA card. I almost threw it away in my to shred bin. I’m going to try and use it this weekend. It’d be interesting to see how that goes! I’ll keep you posted. :wink:
