It is 7 weeks since I received the certified mail receipt for my Samsung SIR-T150 rebate request.


Today, I finally see a status for my request at
http://209.69.149.201/egcheckstatus/checkstatus.asp


Description: SAMSUNG/HDTV TUNER $100 DEPT T

Amount: 100.00

Rebate Status: Request in Progress


Maybe in another 7 weeks I will see a check.

The rebate form says allow 10 to 12 weeks for a check to be mailed. At least your name shows up on the list. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

Personally, I despise mail-in rebate offers - especially those that demand your original receipt. They add from almost zero to negative inducement for me to buy. Once I had to threaten legal action to get a $300 rebate of my own money back, and then it was about six to nine months late. If more than $20, send it certified & signature return.

Mine finally showed up too after 6 weeks.

Well, you can't expect them to be in any hurry!

My rebate application was sent in end of August. Now more than 15 weeks later I still don't have the rebate. The web site has shown that my application "Request is in Progress", but it's been like that for weeks. I decided to call and the rebate people claim that there is some kind of hold-up/problem with Samsung - but no further detail.


How are the rest of you doing with your rebates?

I got my rebate about the same time as some of the others. Seems they may operate in fits and starts, so keep the faith.

Mailed my rebate form on September 6, 2001. Was told that it was "entered into the system" on October 2, 2001. Just got my check in the mail on Monday, December 31, 2001. Total wait: 16 weeks and 4 days.

My form was mailed on August 12th, and I received my check today. The 20 weeks is the longest I've ever had to wait for a rebate.

Well I finnally got my rebate today after 18 weeks!


Now I hope that Samsung customer service can replace my defective remote faster than that - it's been 8 weeks so far. I know I'm going to have second thoughts about buying another Samsung product.
