Amp'D Mobile Complaint - Rebate Offers A Fraud Along With Hybrid Plan

Review by tinkithink on 2007-05-19
I purchased two amp'd mobile cell phones that had 100.00 Rebates. I submitted the rebates in the time allotment along with all of the documentation that they requested. Eight weeks later i receive a card in the mail stating that i did not submit the upc and some other identification. I sat with my adult daughter, we sent all of the required documentation. I called to complain and i got such a run around and they told me to resubmit the rebate. First of all, i could not resubmit it because you had to send all the original labels from the box. Second of all, what good is it going to do..I resubmitted my rebate with all the information i had and it is going to be 2 months the 9th of june. I have heard nothing to date.

I found a site and the general consensus of the site was that i should forget about my rebate. I will never hear from them again.
Check out this site..

You will see at least some of the comments posted!! Beware of this company. Total fraud!!!!

Rebate fraud and they also offer hybrid plan which offers all kinds of minutes at a fairly decent price, it is all bull.

When you go to get activated they advise you do not do the hybrid plan. It is not working correctly..Had to get the kinks out..6 Months later same old song..Beware, beware, beware of amp'd mobile.
Worst experience ever!!!

this is what i posted on this site:
you are absolutely correct about the rebate fraud..Bought two amp’d mobile phones out of cicuit city on or about december 12th, 2006. Gave the phones to my kids for xmas and am still waiting for my rebates. It is now may 9, 2007. They sent me a card saying that i did not submit the upc’s..Which is total bull.
I sat at the table with my adult daughter and we did the rebate submissions togeather. They are a shady company. Told me to resubmit my rebate, i did on april 6th, 2007. Still have not heard from them and i am sure i never will.
I just wish i knew where to go to make a complaint that would get me some results. I have sworn off of amp’d mobile and circuit city for dealing with such a shady fraudulent company. Circuit city also refused to help me. They said 30 day return policy. How would i know six to eight weeks later i would have such problems. Even if i submitted the rebates the same day i bought them, 8 weeks later is too late to get refunded. Between both phones i spent
500.00 To purchase maybe more with tax. What a rip off!!! Because of these issues i decided to just add my kids onto my paid cell service.
I am stiniking mad about not getting my 200.00 In rebates back.
Anyone that would know how i could lodge a complaint please do let me know!!

i plan to press charges against this company as soon as i find the appropriate facility to do so!!! I am stinking angrier that i got taken like this..Even more than when i posted to last site. This stinks real bad..
