I purchase a 19" LCD from Tiger Direct with the "lure' of a $50 rebate on 8/29/06. After receiving the product, I filled out the appropriate on-line form with onrebate.com as well as the sending in the form with UPC & invoice. I checked on-line for updates, of course status never changed. I emailed customer service numerous time, with no reply. Finally I spent the 2 hours on hold to talk to a representative on 1/26/07. The first associate I spoke to replied "so sorry it is well after the deadline, we never received your form.." I called Tiger Direct, 1 hour on hold, the associate eplained that onrebate had my submission, I just need to call back and speak to a manager. I called back and was told this time "just send in a resubmission and check back with a status." It is now 3 weeks latter no check!! I noted an email to the CEO on this site and sent him an email stating that I am no longer upset with the USPS for failing to delivery my mail. I am turning my attention and frustration to his company. I have filed a complaint with the BBB and FTC and with my State's Attorney General. I wish I saw this wesite before purchase.

Update 2/23/06, getting Closer

AUTHOR: Glenn - (U.S.A.)

Wow what an experience! No sooner had I submitted complaints to the BBB, FTC and posted a messsage on this website, all of a sudden, I was communicated by both Tiger Direct & Onrebate. I had an email for 2 different accounts I have from Tiger Direct, one of them asking me to fax my information to them and they will get to Onrebate. Apparently fax is more reliable than the USPS. It is really bizarre that all of the previous emails I had sent inquiring about status only was acknowledged with an auto-generated email saying "All emails that we receive are reviewed by our highly trained response staff."
I also received a call at my home from Onrebate. I called them and they also provide a fax to resubmit my information. I sent both parties of the document I originally mailed back in Aug. '06. I also included a copy of the document I had prepared for the State of Oklahoma's Attorney General, just because.
Today I received an email from Onrebate stating my check will be processed on 3/25/07 and mailed. Certainly not counting my chickens yet, I'm sure somehow the USPS will get blamed if I don't receive it.
