I bought a flat panel monitor from American last year and never got the $50 rebate from Cornea. Everything was filled out correctly and all upc's attached. Just a warning to any others looking to buy one of these. The monitor has performed well, can't say the same for the rebate.

I don't bother with rebates anymore, I just go with whichever reseller can offer me the lowest price at the moment I wish to purchase.

the only good rebates are "instant rebates"

Yeah, mail in rebates are not a good thing. Our store simply ignores advertising any mail in rebate. If we have the forms for the rebates and a customer asks for it (they've heard that the vendor has mail in rebates on that particular product) then we'll give them the forms but warn them that the rebate rarely ever comes through.

Sometimes we lose a sale over this policy, but at least we're honest and not promising customers refund money when they're probably not going to get it.
