How did I miss this forum??

CPG - Continental Promotions Group, aka RebateStatus.com has filed for bankruptcy on November 14, 2008, and ALL outstanding checks are bouncing and the depositor will end up paying bounced deposit fees from their bank.
Refer to the Deal Discussion board for the appropriate thread for addition info. This affect MANY products, companies and consumers. DO NOT DEPOSIT any check from CPG right now. It WILL bounce.

Does anyone know a phone number for the FTC??


It would me much appreciated, they didn't assign me a case # for the form I filled out online complaining against phillips!!


Thanks

rated:
That's strange, they responded to my complaints against KB Gear and Philips. Maybe they realize we're all talking about the same problems and decided not to respond individually

Anyway, in their reply, they said they won't take any action based on individual complaints. They will, however, take action if they see a trend; i.e. receive lots of complaints against one company.

Anyway, their consumer hotline is 1-877-382-4357 (Same as Lanyap's link )
I wonder why their online form doesn't work anymore

I've noticed that the FTC online complaint form webpage is flakey. It works one day and not the next.

COMPUTING INSIDER TIPS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
** Consumer Watch... Debates about Rebates

Yes, it's true. More and more retailers are using rebates as
incentives to entice you into their stores to buy upgrades for your PC.
Unfortunately, the processing of rebates is often a confusing and
tedious process by design.

While rebate programs can work both to the advangage of user and
maufacturer, rebate offers often require a great deal of work to
complete accurately. Making you work hard for your rebate is part
of a numbers game, particularly in those free-bate offers. Less
takers means higher profit margins for vendors.

Be sure you look for the expiration date before investing time
filling out the rebate form. We recently found an expired offer in a
recent weekly advertising insert.

You'll also have to be patient waiting for your rebate check. Some
larger software vendors, like Intuit, often take up to 90 days to
fulfill upgrade rebates to their customers.

Before you call , be sure to:

1. Wait whatever amount of time the rebate form says you must wait to get the rebate, plus a week or so (but don't wait much longer).

2. Telephone Parago at whatever number is on your rebate form AND look at www.rebateshq.com to obtain the status of the rebate. If Parago has mailed the rebate, they can usually give you the check number (on the phone) as confirmation that it really has been mailed.

If you have waited the specified amount of time and your rebate has not been mailed (i.e. Parago tells you that it is still "being processed" after 9 weeks and the fullfillment time was listed as 6 to 8 weeks), then you should probably call. Often, Parago says that they will expedite your rebate when you call about it being overdue, but that is just a Parago stonewalling technique, in my experience.

Be businesslike when you speak and he will get you your rebate promptly. Remind him that you fulfilled your end of the contract and that it is only fair that staples do what they promised in the time frame that they promised.

I contacted TCA today about some outstanding rebates and got this snail-mail address for sending correspondance:



Rebate Resolution
145 Huguenot St Suite 105
New Rochelle, NY 10801

(I wonder if I can show up there in person if I get disgusted with their rebate processing )

I found this link over at banannatech - it allows you to look at TCA rebates by zipcode which is useful for name misspellings.

Just change the *s to your zipcode.

The Rebate Center (Mesa, AZ)'s website appears to be http://www.web-rebates.com But there are no clickable links on the page...

E.g. For linksys rebates, the URL is http://www.web-rebates.com/linksys

Anyone interested in reading a fluff piece about our friends TCA in New Rochelle, see this link.

I have written to the reporter (his email address is linked at the end of the article if anyone else would like to share their views) to let him know the full story.

re: TCA article

] TCA is paid for every piece of mail it handles
]
] TCA gets paid again for handling the follow-up mailing.

What a racket!!

I'd like to know how a client audits the initial mail total. TCA could make up numbers for the "rejected" batch. I guess they have to keep the totals & percentages constant...

At least now we know why follow-ups have increased steadily. Again, just make something up and you get paid...


I'll give credit to WheresMyRebate. They supposedly never received a rebate I submitted. I re-submitted and it's scheduled for mailing. But of course that will be over 5 months after the initial postmark...

Thanks for solving the Mesa, AZ rebate center mystery. I could not find my Linksys rebates though.

Found their business website HERE after doing a Google search on Global Fulfillment Services.

mods may remove this post, but just sharing my experiencing: this rebate processing company is horrible in my opinion. They have never processed any rebate in time (5 months and over is common), and on more than one occasion, they have mailed a check that was VOID (expired) after reaching me. I would avoid them at all costs in the future.

edit: I got another "EXPIRED" check today; obviously they mailed it months after the "ISSUE" date on purpose so it would be expired when I got it.

re: Circuit City (circuitcityrebates.com)

When checking status, you do not have to fill in the 'first initial/name'. The other 3 blanks are sufficient.

They mis-spelled my first name on a rebate so it wasn't showing up in my normal search. Of course you don't find this out until the check arrives...

rated:
It would be nice if you could search without giving the last name as well. They had my last name starting with a T instead of an R for one check I got recently.

Fortunately, I have since learned that when buying in the store, you always tell them to enter your phone number and find your name/address in the computer, so now my rebate forms are pre-filled out. Of course, this does not help with stuff I buy online and that was the one where my last name was misspelled.

staples / Parago / RebatesHQ McAllen, TX actual zipcode 78501 or 78502?

ZIP+4 Code Look-up gives it as 78502 (this is for PO BOX 9712)

http://www.usps.com/ncsc/lookups/lookup_zip+4.html

Rebate forms give it as 78501.
Anyone know how up to date the USPS ZIP code database is or which is
more likely to be the actual zip code? I'm not really worried about
the forms not getting delivered, like I might be with a company that
processes its own rebates, but it would still be nice to use the
correct ZIP+4 barcode since I'm printing envelopes anyway.

rated:
neff,

USPS POBox zips end with the number one.

Your example:
78502 area zip
78501 pobox zip

And, as everyone guesses, the box is usually the 'plus 4' number.
e.g.
pob 1234
78501-1234


A post office I go to is in the 77270 zip.
Boxes are pob 71####, 77271-####.

Your rebate is being processed.

neff - I really would not be concerned about the zip code being wrong. There are so many thousands of these going to any address put on a form, that even if they were wrong the company that printed the form would be able to alert the post office and have them handle the misdirected mail. I remember a free memory deal with CompUSA last year, everyone was convinced that they had printed the wrong address/zip on the form because it was different from normal CompUSA/ New Rochelle rebates. Well it turns out that not only was it correct, but I think that rebate got paid faster than any other CompUSA rebate in recent memory. Bottom line: do not assume that you know better, just put what they ask for on the form. I guess that zip+4 might help but I have a feeling that the post offices that handle these things have a way to expedite sorting without the +4 info.

kwg - your info on zip codes is not completely correct. If you look at the New Rochelle addresses, their post office box zip code ends up 2 (10802) while the normal post office zip ends with 1, and in fact that is what I believe is pretty standard.

Of course, you will likely wait 3 months (or longer) to receive your rebate from them. They're really awful. I have found that emailing them can speed it up a bit.
