I bought a case thinking 'gee thats a bit steep but with the rebate its a good deal'. As with many rebates its a scam to get you to pay full price while promising a rebate you will never recieve. To be actually funny when I click on the website link for my documentation it is 'corrupted'. Sure it is whatever. I made copies before I sent it it and included my newegg invoice. I also have the cardboard box missing the upc that I taped to the form. Did I mention I made copies? Yup They scammed me. I have had no answer for over 30 days. I have been patient but now I am letting everyone know that MSI is guilty of using a scam rebate company to process rebates. Here are the 2 letters. I can always scan and post the rebate form with the UPC taped to it.
Funny thing that 40$, I am part of our purchasing at work and do lots of side business with Systems here in town. Thanks to a lot of Commport time and other sites I keep up with reviews and have a respected opinion with many local businesses. Its not much but we will not be making any purchases involving MSI branded products. I will also be on the lookout for any rebates processed by these con artists. (although CDW and our other authorized units usually discount through bulk orders.)
