I purchased a Hitachi hard drive from this company back in November of last year. There was a $30.00 rebate associated with the purchase. Immediately after receiving the item I filled out the rebate form and sent it in to the rebate house with all of the qualifying documents, and yes, I did sign the form.
On December 19, I received an email from the rebate house stating that they had received my rebate submission and that I could track it at a web address that they listed in the message, with a rebate tracking number.
When I went to the tracking website that they had a link for it showed the following statement: Your rebate is valid. Please allow up to 30 days to receive your rebate. That was December 19, 2008.
I still have not received my rebate. I have called several times and each time I am told that they were sorry for the delay and that they would send me an urgent check. I am still waiting for that urgent check. I have contacted Tigerdirect directly and complained about the situation and they just reply back to me that I need to contact the manufacture or rebate agents.
I have read several other reports of the same kind of thing happening to other people who have made purchases from this company. If you are reading this and are considering making a purchase with a rebate from this company I strongly urge you NOT to do it. You will be lucky to get your rebate from them. They will do their best to frustrate you to the point of just giving up.
Don't bother with them, or you may be sorry! I, for one, will never do business with this company again, rebate or not.
