A couple years ago, I received my rebate papers back from one of Officemax's vendors. It was denied. I took it back to Max and showed them that all was correct, and they gave me the $20.00 rebate directly.
These rebates are often denied as a "practice" of their business model.
In other words, "planned stealing."
I am extremely reluctant to buy anything with an MIR.
I would rather shop for the best price on the item, often this works out to the same -- or better -- price anyway.
I like bigmike's attude. :iagree:
