Office Max Complaint - Rebates
CALIFORNIA -- This is to inform and warn the consumers of the rebate scam by Office Max. After a hard work of submitting several rebates on the products that I purchased from their stores, I felt cheated by this company. After thorough and detailed completion of rebate forms and requirements, office Max sent me a note after 7 weeks that they couldn't process my rebates because of several reasons such as "missing UPC," "Invalid purchase date," "Invalid postmark date." I rechecked the photocopies of the documents I sent them and all these information and requirements that they claimed to be missing are in there.
It has been almost two (2) months now and I have not received even a penny of my almost a $100 rebates. Instead what I received were notices that they couldn't process my rebates due to several reasons, which I considered to be lies.
I believed that consumers should go forward and send complaints to Federal Trade Commission and FBI so that this misrepresentation and scam by Office Max be investigated and stopped.
At Staples, all my rebates were properly accounted for and received just in 2-3 weeks.
