This is not the first time they have pulled this crap. I've bought many, many items from them that was advertised as having a rebate. Not one single rebate has ever made its way back to me.
After some research I found that most of the rebates they offer are not available from other online vendors. This tells me one of two things. Either the rebate is not real (bait and switch?) or the manufacturer pushes them to offer rebates that they have no intentions of honoring. (If it were one or two I could understand...but I'm talking about 18 rebates never received!)
Either way...shame on newegg! Any mention of this in a review I try to post without fail gets me an email stating it's not their fault (plus the review disappears.) The hell it isn't! Quality control is on their back and they should either not offer rebates that do not exist or push the manufacturers to make good on them.
BTW...Anybody notice the price of DDR2 there lately? The Corsair Dominator I bought last December for $100 ($60 after advertised $40 MIR) *squirt squirt* is now priced at $167.99. WTF????
