Radio Shack Complaint - Rebate not honored
PORT ANGELES, WASHINGTON -- After reading other consumer complaints regarding RadioShack rebates, I realized I wasn't alone in my battle with Radio Shack to send me my rebate! In January 2005 I purchased an Orbiter satellite receiver with a $30 mail in rebate. I mailed what they requested including the UPC code from the box, original receipt, etc. I also made copies of everything. They say 8 - 10 weeks of waiting for the rebate. 8 weeks later, I receive a "resubmit" card asking for the UPC code, etc. I mailed the card plus the copy of the UPC code and copy of the original receipt, plus my 3 cents worth on what I thought of the whole stinkin matter. So waited again, sent emails, then they respond that they received the resubmit card but was lacking the original UPC code from the box! Huh..?!?!? Like, duh!! how can I send the original code when I already sent it to begin with!! Total scam!!!! So after giving me the run around for a few more weeks, I even emailed the head office but never heard back from them, they finally responded and basically said - sorry sucka, offer is now expired, nothing we can do about it. I will never ever shop at Radio Shack again!!!!! and I will tell everyone I know about their rebate scam!!!!!
