Yup, Normally I avoid TigerDirect like the plague, specifically for the rebate games they play, but that was too good to pass up.
Well this isn't looking good for me. Earlier I was able to track my rebate on the site, now it apparently doesn't exist. Might have to cancel this order.
Well I was able to track it again. I'll probably just stick to it and see how it goes. This will be my first rebate and order from their online store since I'm in FL and get taxed. Still a great deal after tax.
Thanks. I'm interested, because while I've had pretty good experiences with TigerDirect, I've been hearing about some shady practices lately. Depending on how this turns out, I'll definitely take it into consideration when jumping on a deal from them.
Someone just posted this on SD.
Was the rebate EVER posted on TD? From the sounds of it, the answer is "No".
I'm guessing that TD never published the rebate, someone searched found the rebate offer on the rebate site, decided to publish the information before it was even officially offered, and TD pulled the plug.
Like it or not, at this point TD isn't in the wrong because TD never made the offer in the first place.
Here's the crux of the matter: if the rebate company doesn't get paid (by TD marketing or the Manufacturer), then the rebate won't be honored.
Wow, TD already posted a UPS tracking number!
I've never had any problems with TD rebates in the past, usually they're very fast.
