I bought a sony cyber shot at office max, and with it I bought the Epson 825 photo printer. $75 rebate. After a entire summer and part of the winter of being Screwed over by Epson. I then turned my attention to office max, they had the offer in their store, and I wanted them to take care of me, since EPSON couldnt care less about screwing over their customer.
I talked with them several times on the phone with promises of it will be there 4-6 weeks, I've heard that five times already. Then I started to email them, lucky me cause now I have some proof of them telling me ill get it and then of course it never comes.
Here is some of a few email
How can we help: I checked the status of my rebate and it states that my rebate is invalid. What do I need to do to receive my rebate?
> I have a question: i bought a cyber shot camera from your guys , and a epson photo 825, asked the man who sold it to me" do i need to fill anything out and send it in with this?" he told me no, just your reciept and
a copy of the rebate offer. Sent it in, and as I'm sure you know, I needed to fill out the rebate paper like i asked in the first place.
Got that filled it out, sent it in. They sent me back a card that said I didn't have all the information. I forget what it was exactly they wanted, since it has been so long. But I had to go to the office max to get the info.
Went there got the info again, and this time all I had to do was fax it to them, did that, and never heard from them again. Called them up trying to figure out why I haven't recieved my rebate. They don't know who I am or any thing about it
> >:( called up I believe you guys? The office max customer service. The lady appologized for the way epson was being and put me on hold for a sec, came back and said she would send it to me. I thanked her and hung up.
That was months ago. Why is it I can't get my rebate? This happen all the time? You guys put people off so long they just give up? I must be in your
computer, where she had talked to me, and put in for a check to be sent to me. Please let me know if any thing you know or can do about this. Travis
This is what they sent back to me
