Buy.com Complaint - Rebate scam at Buy.com
FLORIDA -- I ordered an Argus Bean camera from Buy.com. First was the hassle in getting it shipped to me. I clearly wrote down my address and and apartment number and still it never made it to my home. Just before the post office was about to ship it back I was able to pick it up from there. When I ordered the product it said to purchase by August 18 to get a $20 rebate on the camera. I did and mailed it it with a copy of my receipt. When I got my mail almost 10 days later it said the coupon for the rebate had expired. There was no expiration date on the rebate just that the purchase had to be made by a certain date. I followed the rules but was still denied my rebate. When I called about it, someone in the rebate office said they would send it to me. Three weeks later, no rebate check. When I call back I am told that it was purchased thru another seller and that they never offered a rebate.
The BS they come up with is unheard of and incredible. If you don't want to encounter a hassle or high blood pressure over the purchase of an order online, don't buy anything from Buy.com no matter how good the price or offer sounds, its a SCAM!!!
