Wireless Advocates operates the cell phone kiosks in Costco locations. Like any vendor they offer a $$ rebate on activation of a new line. The company uses a rebate agent, "Stuart Lee Rebates", which is a scam. They will never issue you the rebate. Over the past year, I have contacted them multiple times about the status of my rebate. Each time they tell me they have no record of my purchase and ask that I refax the paperwork. Recommend you avoid and purchase from a vendor other than Wireless Advocates. They don't stand behind their guarantee.

What about my rebate?

AUTHOR: JeniRose - (United States of America)

How about my rebate that according to was received on 11/05/2010 and issued on 01/20/2011? I'm sorry, but it should not take this long to receive. The response I get from the company is that I need to wait 60 days after it's been issued to contact them if it's not been received. 60 days? I've already waited 3 months from the time I sent it in until the time it was apparently issued. I do not recommend buying a product that uses this rebate service. The outlet that I purchased my item from, whom I won't disclose, told me that it would come in a credit card form and only take a couple of weeks. Now I'm waiting on a measly postcard check that who knows where it is, it's only money that I'm deserved, right? What do they care!

#3 UPDATE Employee

Just not true!!!!!

AUTHOR: C-dog - (U.S.A.)

The thing that I don' get is why, after getting word that your rebate was never received, there's no mention of you going back to the kiosk to try resolve your issue. I mean,Stuart Lee Rebates informed you that they never received your rebate form.

There are only two reasons for your rebate to be reject. And those are, an improperly submitted form or a form (envelope) that is not postmarked within 30 days from the date of purchase. That's it. But that doesn't even sound like the problem. They have to receive it first.

I have been an employee since Nov. 2007, and I have helped hundreds and hundreds of members, and if the member follows the directions on the form, and mails it out within 30 days of purchase, they WILL receive their rebate within 6-8 weeks. Keep in mind that the rebate is not processed until after the 30 day remorse period is up , in case the member returns or exchanges the phone. That is why It must be postmarked within 30 days.

I don't know if the person that helped you followed company policy, but not only are we required to fill out the rebate form for the member, but we must also make copies of all the paperwork that is required to accompany the rebate slip and staple it all together to eliminate the chance of an error on the rebate form, so all the member has to do is stuff,address and stamp the envelope.

I honestly don't know what happened,but this is a very rare occurrence that most likely could have been avoided with a call or visit to the kiosk immediatly after notification that the rebate was not received.

I urge anyone who reads this rebuttal to log on to Stuart Lee Rebates and check out the testimonials for themselves.
