Default Computer Stuff Rebates

Last week I bought three computer items with rebates, one for $10, one for $20, and one for $30. One offer says it can take up to 8 weeks for the check. Another says 90 days. The third one does not say anything about how long I might wait. They are strict, though, all three say I must send in the rebate form, UPC, and receipt within 15 days or even less.

My idea is that they should just give you an instant rebate, not all this bureaucratic stuff. Some people must forget to do it, or do it too late, or otherwise miss out. Worse, I had better be careful with what seems like junk mail, maybe it might be my check in a rather plain envelope.

I am very careful to provide the address exactly as they specify, spacing, punctuation, etc. Who knows, they might say it is lost if I don't say "Dept T" below the P.O. BOX. I do the envelopes on the computer, and keep the MS Word document, and copies of all the forms.

Maybe all will be well, and I will really get $60 in the mail sometime next year, but still, I don't really like these rebates.

What is your experience with rebates?
