Unbreakable said: Do they have to receive it by Aug 31? The rebate form can be interpreted both ways. I am sending mine today....was planning on using Ground.Call and tell us what you find out. "Postmark" or "received by" (btw, I sent my two in last week - different addresses)
NOTICE: THE PROGRAM OUTLINED BELOW WILL BE ENDING ON AUGUST 31, 2008. ANY REPLACEMENT OR REFUND REQUESTS SUBMITTED WITH A POSTMARK DATE LATER THAN AUGUST 31, 2008 WILL NOT BE PROCESSED AND YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REPLACEMENT DISC OR REFUND.
This is exactly what I was worried about when I sent mine in today. Whether the date is received by August 31st or post dated August 31st. I guess if people don't get it out today, the only other way is to overnight it on Saturday. My understanding is that if you 3-day it on the 30th, it won't go out until the 2nd since the 1st is a holiday. I believe they use the date when it goes out for delivery and not when they pick up the package.
I just talked to UPS and they tell me that the centers aren't open on Saturday and Sunday. The UPS Stores however are open. Now here's where it gets a bit dicey. According to the guy, the UPS trucks ONLY pick up packages that are stated to go overnight and that's when it is scanned in. The 3-day commercial shipping packages just sits in the UPS Store until the next business day delivery which is Tuesday since Monday is a holiday even though it would be too late regardless.
Anyone have an alternative shipping method which will still allow it to be post dated on August 31st through tracking? With rebates you can't be too careful. They'll do anything to try and screw you over.
Got mine a few weeks ago. Didn't even send with UPS 2-Day Select -- it was around 16 dollars. Sent it in with USPS Priority for 6 something, got confirmation of it being received by Activision the very next week. Got the check in 2 weeks. Speedy, easy, hassle free. Activision gets major kudos for this.

I have contacted the rebate center (888-788-4931) multiple times since then, and all I seem to get are excuses and the runaround. Now, they tell me that they are no longer paying these out and that the rebate has been "referred to client" (Activision).
