    To the credit of manufacturers out there...  
    I have never, ever, not received a mail-in rebate. Just make sure you follow the instructions properly and you will get your money. Eventually...

    1,300 Unopened Rebate Applications Found In Dumpster  
     
     
     
    This is a picture of the 1,300 unopened rebate forms a Mercury News reporter found in a dumpster near Vastech, a rebate processor for Fry's Electronics.  
     
    When confronted, the company's owner blamed it on a lazy employee who no longer works for Vastech and offered to process and sign checks for all of the envelopes in front of the reporter.i am a worm.

    seeing as how none of the url's on the rebate receipts in the stores work, and there is no official way to find an expired rebate form unless you ordered on frys.com after november. i would say yes they are a scam. frys does back up the rebates, however they only give out the money if you jump through several hoops that are on fire.

    Im not sure how it is recently, but I've always been able to claim Fry's rebates. Ive bought at least 4 "free after rebate" items, and many other discount rebate items and never missed one. I haven't purchased any in a while, so I can't speak for now, but when I did, it was easy enough if you speak english.Superhero!

    most of them are ppl who don't know how to correct fill out a rebate...and most of the time they dont keep a copy for their recordsLas Vegas, NV / Store # 27 / Dept. 12
