Symantec Corporation (Norton) Symantec Corporation ripoff SystemWorks 2004 Rebate Cupertino California
*Author of original report: Rebate RESOLVED ..Symantec should NOT be excused simply because they hired an inept third-party to process their rebates
*Consumer Suggestion: Sounds like you do need two proofs of purchase.
*Consumer Suggestion: How I resolved the Problem
Although I got the $30 rebate check, I never heard a word from them regarding the $40 rebate. I decided to investigate the matter.
Turns out that they state the following:
Rebate: No Reward Will Be Issued
Rebate Information For: 103272031
Promotion: 03~66176 $40 USD Mail in Rebate with Purchase of - Norton Internet Security Pro (NIS Pro) or Norton SystemWorks Pro (NSW Pro) at Staples
Submission Type: MAIL-IN
Date Received: 12/10/2003
Status Detail: Invalid.
Invalid Reason: * Rule Proof of Purchase or Original UPC
I emailed them once, and was given NO answer, but was referred to their online-help system. At that point, I was unable to get online-support, and was channeled into their email system again. They have no online service available, and seem to be giving me the brush-off.
I will try the 800 number, but expect NO results, because 1) they have not been helpful so far, and 2) others have reported the same ripoff happening to them.
