AT&T Uverse - Rebate Deceit
Att Uverse Rebates - Complaint
DAYTON, OHIO -- An AT&T UVERSE rebate offered a $100 visa card for switching to UVERSE. I received a card from ATT for $50. The remaining $50 was to come from HBO and STARZ. To get these rebates required a rebate form be filled out for each movie offering. Each form required a paid invoice invoice for 3 months of service. The work necessary to fulfill these requirements was simply not worth it. I passed on these rebates.
I also got stung on rebates from Lowe's and rebates from the local natural gas company. The total of these lost rebates came to $400. This all occurred in the period from mid December to late may. It seems to me that these rebates are offered to promote sales but with no intention of paying the rebate if at all possible. This is done by building requirements into the process that are very difficult, if not impossible, to meet.
In general there is deceit, bordering on fraud, in the rebate process. Caveat emptor.
