Continued from the previous thread. --- Are your rebates coming? Are there problems or delays getting them? Post the latest information about various rebates, here. If you want your posts to be helpful, keep them factual. If you believe there is a problem with a specific rebate, do your homework and learn the facts before you post. DO NOT speculate about what may or may not be happening. The most helpful posts include: 1. Verified contact information (mailing addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, names etc.) for rebate sources. Active links always help. 2. Accurate details of the kinds of proof of purchase and other documentation required (UPC codes, receipts, etc.). 3. Significant updates and changes in any of the above info. Hint - To find info about a particular rebate, use [Ctrl + F] to search for key words, member names, etc. This thread is for sharing helpful informatation with your fellow members. Please DO NOT just brag about the rebate you got, or moan about the one that got away, without contributing to the discussion. We have a thread for that. --- <<< Major thanks to Lanyap and everyone who has been contributing to the following information!!! >>> MAJOR REBATE CENTERS: Continental Promotions Group / CPG - Phoenix, AZ & Scottsdale, AZ & Niagara Falls, NY (?) www.rebatestatus.com (May not list all rebates) www.rebatestatus.com (Email webpage) (800) 554-9838 ext. 6100 (888) 314-9908 (888) 314-9903 (480) 606-4313 (fax resubmission to the Email Task Force Dept.)

Some online sites will remove rebates as soon as the sale/promotion is over. 3) ALWAYS make good copies of everything you send in for a rebate. 4) Complete all information requested on rebate form in a legible hand writing. You may want to use all caps. 5) Provide all documents requested on the rebate form. 6) Put your rebate documentation and copies in a safe place and follow up on the dates they are due. 7) Call about your rebate if you do not receive it when it is due. --- ~~~~ How Do I ~~~~ I continued here.
