I try not to do too many because it's sometimes a hassle and I have been burned a few times. I'm currently out $40 for a CenDyne CD-RW drive from last June. I only bought it because of the rebate, which brought the total price down to $99. Otherwise, I would have bought a better brand. I have called the number on the form several times, which goes to wheresmyrebate.com. They couldn't ever find my records but told me they had the CenDyne ones in a separate file because there was a problem with the company. It appeared to be going out of business. Well, I just saw a new CenDyne drive in last week's ad from Fry's Electronics with a rebate promotion. What gives? There were rebates from both Fry's and CompUSA when I got my drive from CompUSA (king of Rebateland, it seems).
Any suggestions as to what I do next? I feel like I was suckered and am still angry about the whole process, although I've had a few problem-free experiences since then from more reputable companies. I picked up some cheap and freebie CD-Rs from CompUSA over the weekend but am debating whether or not it's worth the trouble. Sorry, my little rant went on much longer than I intended. It's really the principle that bothers me.
