I checked my rebate status for 2x25 pack Verbatim 16x DVD+R today, purchased from supermediastore.com in the first week of February. The website (www.rebateshq.com) had stated that my rebate was invalid because I had not purchased the item within the proper time frame. The rebate form had specified that the deal was valid from 01/15/05 - 02/15/05. The site states they had received my rebate request on 03/02/05…the deadline for submission is still days ahead on 03/15/05.
I am at a lost at why my rebate is invalid and I feel pretty cheated. Trying to get someone to talk to you on the phone is very difficult, and I have not yet succeeded; but I will try again tomorrow during business hours.
Anyways, I just wanted you guys to know in case you may be in a similar situation (and are not aware of it yet), and also as a warning because I know there is a rebate offer for 16x DVD-R’s at this present time.
