Since I could see online that the rebates were accepted, I waited patiently until November for payment. Unfortunately, payment never came. I made several phone calls (spoke with Alex, Otto, et al) and sent several emails and each time (after much hassle) received the explanation that technical problems preventing them from paying me. Each time, they assured me that the problem was fixed and I'd get paid within a week.
One guy named Robert, on 11/24/06 said on the phone that he would issue a credit to my credit card. I even waited for him to get an authorization from his supervisor, Elizabeth. The credit never came.
Finally, In December, I filed a complaint with BBB (where their rating is unsatisfactory). Here's the company's response:

I really thought they'd send the payment once I saw this. Unfortunately, no such luck!
At first I assumed they were incompetent, since I've never been scammed by a NYSE traded company so blatantly before (Systemax). Now I think they're running a huge fraud ring.
IMHO, These folks are scammers and while some rebates are definitely paid, many are not. It's only a matter of time before you'll end up losing cash with this outfit.
