Only once have I ever bought something with a rebate, was some OCZ RAM. I had heard horror stories about OCZ, so I made sure to triple check EVERYTHING, have someone else ****ing check my work, and just for good measure, I took pictures of everything.
Well, wouldn't you know it, like 6 months later I got an email saying that I had made a mistake and denied me the rebate. they wanted me to redo everything, but I had to cut the UPC out of the box the first time, so I was ****ed. I tried getting in contact with someone at OCZ but they didn't care.
Months later, I told my story on hardforum. I posted the pictures I had taken, and the email addresses of the people I had been in contact with, what the emails had said, etc. and an OCZ rep just happened to be lurking in the thread.
What did the OCZ rep do? He sent me a PM and asked me to remove the email addresses from my post.
Told him to get ****ed, and shortly after another forum member put me in contact with someone who was able to get me my rebate. It took 1.5 - 2 years to get my rebate. They tried to justify it by saying that a 3rd party does all the rebate stuff for them, and that they had to handle a high volume of rebates.
**** rebates and **** OCZ.
