my4mainecoons said:   Just getting around to entering some SER's. Showing $30 gc for each $200 gc purchase. Looks like they've straightened everything out.

I checked again this morning and my rebates entered on 11/14 are still showing validation in progress and reward amount pending. Previously it showed the $150 total.

Yes same here, validation not done yet ...

Anyone know if these prepaid visa / master cards can be used at serve.com to withdraw cash or attract fees or any sorts? I am reluctant to join AP due to SSN

Bought mine on 11/11 & 11/12 and all are showing "validation complete" but "Reward amount pending".

On the Staples rebate site, mine still says reward amount pending, but on http://www.rebateshq.com/ the amounts have been updated. I bought a single $200 card and then 4 $200 cards. Initially it had them at rebates of $30 and $150, but now they're $30 and $120.

I had two 3x$200 purchases, but only 1 shows up when I search by name & zip so I had to manually search for it by tracking number -- both show $90 GC and processing

When are we expected to get the rebates ? Holding off on buying a shredder and laptop

tajar96 said:   When are we expected to get the rebates ? Holding off on buying a shredder and laptopThe rebate says 6-9 weeks. Since these are now marked validation complete for some people it is POSSIBLE they could arrive in 2-3 weeks but since the rebate says 6-9 weeks there is no basis to complain if they do not show up in 2-3 weeks.

11/13 bought and submitted rebate shows validation complete
11/23 bought and submitted 11/25 rebate shows validation in progress.

Fixed.

Anyone that bought RiteAid Home Improvement GCs over Thanksgiving Weekend, check your receipt for the UP Reward. I was pleasantly surprised today to see 12/8 expiry of the $20 UP Reward.

So is it possible to use these cards without registering them?

prikindel said:   So is it possible to use these cards without registering them?
most definitely. You only need to register them if you're using them on line.

Really? Is this new?

I thought he was talking about the VC/MC gc, not the Staples gc's.

That's what I mean: Do Visa/Mastercard prepaid gift cards (from Staples) need to be activated? I don't ever recall doing this, and I purchase items in store and online.

dazviking said:   That's what I mean: Do Visa/Mastercard prepaid gift cards (from Staples) need to be activated? I don't ever recall doing this, and I purchase items in store and online.Obviously not, since I used mine right after my purchase on the next transaction.

I checked my rebates at RebatesHQ and they all seem to be a $30 for a single $200 card. Did the person who bought 6 $200 cards end up getting the rebates on all of them? Or did they cap it at $150? I wonder if the SER site will ever get updated with the correct amounts?

Since these are now marked validation complete for some people it is POSSIBLE they could arrive in 2-3 weeks but since the rebate says 6-9 weeks there is no basis to complain if they do not show up in 2-3 weeks.It says 6-9 weeks now to allow for the extended return period for holiday purchases. Since these were made before that took effect and are completely validated, I don't see why they should not ship in the normal time frame.

Sorry, my mistake. This was 11/23, I checked the receipt again. Post is fixed.

Since these were made before that took effect and are completely validated, I don't see why they should not ship in the normal time frame.It was 4-6 weeks for the rebate before they noticed the glitch and then it was changed to 6-9 weeks. What is the official return period? Last time I looked it was not on their website. Last year it started 11/13.

Yes, that's what I meant.

Another thing, I see that the MC says "Electronic use only", it's right below the MC logo. Does it mean I can't use it at a B&M store?

No, people were rolling these cards when buying the next card. I assume that means no using the old method of using embossed manual multi-carbon forms of payment. So, yes you can use them at B&M stores.

Last time I looked it was not on their website. Last year it started 11/13.I'd be very surprised if the 6-9 weeks is due to anything other than the extended holiday return period, not the incorrect amounts shown on one rebate.

In any case, on rebateshq dot com the status of my rebates is showing "Your rebate is valid and is scheduled for final processing". Parago likes to update some statuses on Monday mornings IIRC so I will check this coming Monday to see if this status has changed at all.

they don't need to be activated but might need to be registered. If you use them online the vendor doesn't see your name/telephone number so may reject the purchase. Registering allows them to match the card to the person ordering like a regular credit card.

Your reward has been sent.


allerobed said:   Mine was just updated today. Last time I checked it said $75. Today it was $60. I bought two $200 gift cards. I'm happy with that!!I assume you meant $60 on each transaction for buying 2 $200 gift cards.

Did anyone get more than $150 in rebates?

I did 3 x $200 twice on my dad's account - just for the heck of it. rebateshq is showing $90 x 2. Sure hope that sticks - my dad has no idea what's due to arrive!

I bought 2 $200 cards in one transaction.

Just got an email from stapes rebate saying "Check is in mail. No Really"

When did you submit your rebate?

And I thought it was supposed to be a gift card...

allerobed said:   And I thought it was supposed to be a gift card...

Parago sends the same email for all sorts of payment methods.

Submitted SER on 11/15. GOt email yesterday and as someone mentioned, parago sends a generic emial regardless of payment type. Typically it takes 3 to 5 business days to receive gift card once you get the email. Haven't received emails for other submissions I did on 11/16 and 11/17 yet.
