I shopped at www.outpost.com for computer memory. www.outpost.com indicated there is a $10.00 rebate for OCZ Technology www.ocztechnology.com memory. This rebate appears off and on over the course of several days. When I tried to find out how to get the rebate, the www.outpost.com link,

http://shop3.outpost.com/template/help/index/FE30/Service3/Assistance/Left_Topics/A11WarrantiesRebates, indicates,

"Rebates
Unless otherwise noted, rebates are provided by the manufacturer and are always one-per-household. In most cases rebate forms are not in the boxes and are downloadable from the product description page. If you are unable to download the rebate form from the product description page, please click here to e-mail Customer Service. If you prefer to contact us by phone please call Customer Service at 1-877-OUTPOST (toll-free within the U.S.) or +1-408-350-1484."

I checked with the website, www.ocztechnology.com , and there is no rebate. I e-mailed www.ocztechnology.com and have not gotten a reply.

I e-mailed www.outpost.com 2 times but never got a reply.

Other Internet sites have a Rebate Center right on the Internet site and are more honest. The Internet site you are buying from has the rebate right on their site.

www.outpost.com makes it difficult to get a rebate if it exists.

It is apparent that www.outpost.com makes it difficult to get the rebates and have no real intention to honor the rebates if the rebates exist. www.outpost.com has found a scheme to skirt the law and cheat customers.

I will never buy anything else from www.outpost.com.
