Lowe's $100 Rebate ripoff for Whirlpool Refrigerator Rip-off Bear Delaware
By November I still had not received my rebate, though I did receive a different rebate from Lowe's that I had sent in at the same time. I submitted a message to the Customer Contact Center on the www.lowes.com/rebates website on 11/22/2004. The e-mail response stated "a valid rebate is currently being processed... Rebate Amount: 100.00 gift card...Please allow 6-8 weeks for processing." I kept this email, and a print out of the web page stating it was being processed.
Eventually the status on the site no longer read "We have received your submission..." instead, it read "Your search returned no results." I sent another message to the Rebate Customer Service Center on 12/22/2004 and received an email response on 01/07/2005 stating "A valid rebate is still in process." Still, I have not received my rebate.
I am beginning to feel as though I have been ripped off. One of the reasons I bought this appliance from Lowe's is because of this great promotion, "Get More storage space with the Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator And Get A Free $100 Lowe's Gift Card." But apparently that was a lie.
People buy their products based on this promotion and instead of holding up the company's portion of the deal, they brush it off, in the hopes that they can save another crummy 100 bucks when the consumer- the valued customer, gives up. These things take time, but seven months is a scam.
Just submitted another email to the reabtes "Customer Service Center" and an email to the company's overall feed back area.
