Hey guys,

End of novemebr I bought myself a droid and my wife and mom in law each a rogue. They all came with rebates and I sent them out the first week of december. Verizon said that it takes up to 6 weeks in order to get the rebata. No big deal. With the holiday season approaching I even figured it would take longer and brushed it off. Well when feb. Came ik got a little nervous and started checking on things. Could not find a rebate anywhere. Then low and behold in the mail the other day are the original envelopes receipts and clippings. Wtf? The receipt itself says that the offer ended like jan. 22but ti says it can not be postmarked any later than feb. 22. Can I resend these in as long as the potage mark is before the 22?

Thanks
Matt

Personally if it was me, I would send it certified with signature required delivery.

No, my intent isn't for someone to call and get "screwed over". When I worked there, there were times when a rebate for one reason or another didn't get in on time. In those situations, I credited the rebate amount off of their bill. I don't consider that screwing over a customer. The reason I mentioned call CS, there could be an extension of time given to resubmit since they were purchased over the holidays.

You should definitely call, because I seem to remember the girl that we bought our phones from saying hat you only had so long to send them in, as in, so much time after your date of purchase. Maybe 30-60 days? I could be wrong. Maybe Feb 22 is what she said. I wasn't eligible, so I didn't pay a LOT of attention. My cousin sent his in pretty late though, and got his rebate, so like someone else said, just be courteous and they'll tend to help you out.

Ya its kinda crazy. I figure I will send it certified mail and then call on top bof that to play it safe. It was just so crazy that all three came back at the same time untouched. Like they missed me or/something.

I bought mine at the end of Dec and got my rebate card the 1st week of Feb. Go figure... Like others have said: call them. Personally I would rather get it as a credit on my bill rather than a debit card.

I called them on it, I told them
"If I would be as late paying my cell phone bill as you are with sending me my money, you would probably cut my phone off, next time Im going instant rebate with Best Buy"
