So I'm planning on buying some of the FAR stuff with a reward check and some coupons. Does that affect my rebates or do I have to buy them with cash?

I find that using coupons/rewards checks generally affects rebates by making them more lucrative.

But will they not send me the rebate? I want to use 3 rewards checks and a $25/75 coupon. I used ejunkie so I don't know if it'll work?


sorry, in my original post, I had misunderstood the question - simple confusion in my mind between "rebates" and "rewards"

now that this is fixed, ignore the criticisms below.

there are several previous threads that mention this - you can do a search for them to read about the details.

Nantucket is Nuttucket!! Sorry, that was bad.
I have done what you propose several times and I have always received the rebate check. My boss has done it several times too. I think you should be perfectly fine.

this post is absurd. this is simply not true. Rewards checks have NO EFFECT ON REBATE SUBMISSIONS WHATSOEVER.

Your posting up this nonsense, spreading misinformation is a joke.

Only REWARDS OFFERS can be negatively impacted by REWARDS CHECKS, not REBATE OFFERS!
