DEAD ZONE $10 rebate question...

There's a $10 rebate offer in the DEAD ZONE SEASON 2 collection.
My question is where are the "proof of purchase tabs" located?
I've looked over both seasons and can't find them. Without the tabs - no $10 rebate. Anyone?

Hee hee hee...that's a VERY good question! There are no proof of purchase tabs! Maybe they mean the UPC code...which means you can kiss about 10 percent of your box goodbye.

Wonder if there's a number to call to ask what they want?

I'm curious about a number to call too. If they mean butcher off the UPC codes on both boxes, they can forget it. I'd rather keep my 10$.

Agreed. I'm not butchering the boxes for the rebate.

I'm going to keep an eye on this thread for info:

I doubt they'll ever get an official answer.

I was wondering this too. There is no way I am going to cut off the UPC's. $10 just isn't that important, especially since I payed such a low price on both sets.

I would just take a chance and mail in the flyer and the receipt(s) with a note perhaps that there are no proof of purchase tabs in the set. If you don't get your $10, you don't get it...but it's better than cutting up two pretty nice boxes.

Sounds like a plan.

There are NO proof of purchase tabs.
Include a letter stating this along with your
sales receipt and rebate form. It worked for me.

I sent in the UPCs and got my $10 check a few weeks ago.

just got my rebate. Anyone else think it was odd the way it came? I almost threw it away thinking it was junk mail. It's nothing more than a postcard made into a check. No envelope at all. Oh, well. Be careful when going through your mail if you are expecting this.

I'd say that 90% of the rebates that I've gotten are like this.
