    No biggie at all.
    True, the process of getting the card is quite painless, however using the card is something different.. I cant count how many places my card would not work, home depot and gas stations being one of them, and in order to transfer the money to your account, you cant have used evena single penny from the rebate card. Not sure what verizon management was thinking with these cards although I would like to know. From a cost savings standpoint, producing and mailing paper checks is much less expensive than producing and mailing plastic.. only think I can think of is they have a contract with Visa.
    people used to complain becuase the checks were made out to the account holder, not necessarily the individual who bought the phone

    therefore the account holder had to deposit the check into his/her checking account and then withdraw that amount to give to the person who actually bought the phone.

    those rebate cards suck. Your prepaying 100 bucks so they can give it back to you in a card form. I would like to see how much in revenue Verizon collects from people not using their card, or not taking the rebate... Im sure its millions.
    *Face palm*

    thats a rebate from the manufacturer, not us.
    Are you sure about that ? I thought those rebates were directly from Verizon, not Motorola.

    why would we put a rebate on something thats not even ours?

    edit: let me clarify my statement. we (vzw) handles the rebates as a middleman. it is a manufacturers rebate though. kinda like them saying "thank you" for buying their device. we handle it to prevent the customer from going through the manufacturer themself

    My wife got a $50 card and I got the $100 for the droid. She was pregnant and losing things left and right! I got mine taken care of right away but we lost out on her $50.
    I'm sure that is exactly why they do it!

    What Ive always done in the past and did again this morning is I have them add 100.00 to my account. Pay them 200.00 and mail off the rebate that same day. Get the card in a couple weeks and head into the VZW store and pay off the 100 they added to my account.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    *face Palm* back atcha.. what do I care who its from.. Its coming out of my pocket and I am giving it to Verizon.. What Verizon does with it after the transaction I could care less about.

    And this doesnt change the fact that the rebate cards (whom are sent and administered by Verizon *face palm two*), still suck

    they suck because you cant send a piece of paper in an envelope and not lose the card after?

    No, they suck because they do not work at some stores we go to on a daily basis. They dont work at ANY self checkout lines including Home Depot, Grocery stores, Etc... They dont work at gas stations in Jersey, and in order to transfer amounts to the bank, you are not allowed to use the card once. The days of checks, and cash in hand were much easier than dealing with the BS with these cards. I have 1.60 remaining on ym card, some stores do not allow the usage of the rebate cards to pay half of a balance, so now I cannot use the 1.60 remaining...

    Also, where did I ever say I lost a card?
