So I treated myself to an early xmas present. Local lumbar yard had 15% for the holidays and you get a stabila level when you send in the UPC.
Well thats my question, I ask the guy at the yard if I was suppose to just grab one off the rack or if they came in a box.
He said no just grab one. I am home now and cant find the UPC to send in and get the level.
Help Please

Uooo

Here is the deal, rebates are some of the most unethical retail practices out there today. Think about it, if a company wants to offer a product at sale price X, offer it, sell it, and be done with it. They offer these bullshi# rebates, this allows them to advertise the low price. Then put obstacles in place to help insure the customer will screw something up. Then if you dot all your I's and cross all your T's, the next thing they do is forget to send your rebate. Now most of the public will forget about the rebate, a small % will take the time and follow up, the company makes a fortune in all these unclaimed rebates. I never buy a product with a rebate, it is legalized stealing. GMOD.

Preach on Gene, i dont know how many cell phones my wife got with the $100 dollar mail in rebate and never saw any of it. Of course after the 6-8 weeks is up you forget whether you even sent it in and just forget about it.

I am not forgetting anything, Sears just tried to screw me on $60 back on a Bosch Table saw, sent me out a postcard with the wrong name on it. As soon as I called them they where like, yes we seem to have two different names, just got the check yesterday.
I will be back to the yard tomorrow to get my UPC for the bag and then mail it right in.

if you're lookin for a cheap phone, or free, letstalk.com has it. i've gone there twice and it works out great. saved a crap load of money. no mail in rebate bs. the price you see for "price today" is what you pay.

The last few we got i just got free online. Tired of paying for them and never getting the rebate back at the stupid verizon stores.
