A few months ago NewEgg had this
deal running for OEM versions of Vista Ultimate 32 and 64 bit. I sent out my rebate stuff around the 15th of December and have been waiting patiently for some news about it occasionally checking the rebate-status page they give only to find nothing.
After doing some looking around on the internet to see if anyone else was having a similar problem I ran into this Forum Posting
. Not something the exactly bodes well. A week ago I did call them myself to see if I could any more information about it. I initially mentioned it looked as though the rebate were directly through newegg, the service rep assured me newegg does not issue rebates directly(If newegg wasn't the one that setup the rebate it sure looks that way). Afterwards I told her what the rebate was for she kind of said, 'oh' and then said she had to talk to someone about it, after about 10 minutes she came back on and said they would look into it, and asked for me to confirm my e-mail address, which I did. I've not heard from them since, I'll probably follow up next week if I've not heard anything by then.
Can anyone else verify what was said on legit reviews? Did anyone else
send out for this one, being $50 off (gift card or not) I imagine it enticed a lot of people to pick this up. Has anyone actually received their gift card?
On another note I had sent out 3 other rebates for various other products off their site and have received confirmation they have been received. In one case I've already gotten my rebate back. These rebates do not seem to be issued by newegg as the vista rebate had been.
