International Rebates was given to us as a consolation gift when we attended an invited talk by TRVL, Inc.; a company selling timeshares. Basically, we could get up to $100.00 in gas rebates if we followed the terms and conditions stated on our certificate. The catch is, it is not possible to get $100 in rebates because part of conditions is that it will take 6-8 weeks for delivery of the rebate check.
When we called them because the rebate check was past due, their excuse was they were running behind schedule. After calling week after week, they finally sent us our first $10.00 rebate check. Along with the check is the next voucher for your next gas rebate. Again, we sent it out the day we received it and again 6-8 weeks go by, no rebate check. An inquiry call goes into their call center and again, they're falling behind schedule because of the holidays.
Carrie who answers the phone repeatedly claims, all she can do is make the request to the department to send out the check. Anyone who is aware they are working for a company that scams people repeatedly is just as guilty as the owners of the company. The only way to get results is to call repeatedly until you get your rebate check. It may not be worth the hassle to many, but if consumers don't insist they get what is due to them, companies will continue to take advantage of folks because they know they can get away with it. TRVL, Inc. was contacted about the practices of International Rebates which they endorsed. They don't seem concerned as it doesn't affect them directly.
