Special thanks to Trend Micro, McAfee, Symantec, Bitdefender, and all the others who helped finance my education next semester!So you got all the debit cards without spending money up front?

On the topic of Bitdefender, Citi (the card issuer) allows transactions to go thru with the wrong expiration date and no CVV code. How's THAT for secure?
Ha! I wish! After selling the items on eBay and collecting the rewards, it was nice to cash out the debit cards on something worthwhile. It certainly wasn't "completely free," but I did profit off of those companies and cash out very easily (hence my statement that they *helped* finance me).

As for the bitdefender cards, their cards "look" more polished and nicer than the cards from other issuing banks. You'd think they'd give attention to other, more important details...

The Auburn payment system requires only the number, name, expiration, and address - no CVV code was entered for any of the transactions, and they all went through without a hitch.

I keep careful track of my rebate submissions. QuickBooks was late on the rebate and I checked on it and they said they never got my submission and they asked for copies. And of course, I had all documentation ready.



hmm.. same thing happened to my Newegg QuickBooks rebate... they said they never received it...


Wow, that's at least two of us on that particular rebate. That's a big one too, $80.


Anyone have an address or phone number to use when checking on Newegg QuickBooks rebates? The rebate form I have doesn't list any contact info.


Yeah Me too on the QuickBooks rebate. Guess I will call/chat them.

It's as if they put them in a corner somewhere and do not process them. I seem to recall that they do show up eventually, but no one wants to wait for that to happen.

I think the issue just happened recently. They were fast before in entering your info into their system until like Apr. this year. I mailed my rebate from OD purchase on Apr. 21 and they were not entered into their system until Jun.6. I could have almost resubmitted if I had not been traveling during that time.

Then they fax it in and think that did it, when the reality is that it's probably just that Parago got around to entering them. I wonder in Intuit tells them to do this to avoid paying the rebate for a while.

In for the Webroot. Be aware if you are new to Webroot rebates that the info Parago has in front of them is sometimes different than your rebate. I've had to re-submit twice on Webroot which is twice as much as I have had to re-submit any other rebate. It's probably worth it, just have to be aware that it may happen. It's not a big deal if you always make backups of everything and you need to do this anyway.

For anyone who is waiting for rebates from Susteen, I just got this in an email from them:

We are no longer worked with the previous rebate processor and are
processing them from here now. Please send in all of your past due rebates
in one batch (rebate forms/receipts) and I can put them into one check. I
apologize for the inconvenience.


The email came from pseang@susteen.com. I had purchased the DataPilot Universal Kit from Newegg around Black Friday. I'd been having trouble finding the scans because I thought I bought them from Frys. Turns out I bought them from Newegg (which I figured out by searching on the rebate id that I found on the rebate status page).

Thanks Bill, that's delightful. The other day I had to ask for a check to be re-issued that never reached me. You really got to be on top of this stuff, that's for sure.

You really got to be on top of this stuff, that's for sure.Yeah, and it's particularly upsetting because one of my Frys rebates from April recently showed up on the site, and these 2 Newegg rebates are also there. I emailed my info to the person, and told her that I expect to be paid quickly so I do not need to go to the trouble of getting the BBB involved. We'll see how that works out.

While I'm not always in front of a computer to post it here, last week was one of the busiest I've seen in a while.

Usually, most new deals come out between Monday and Wednesday.

You are welcome to post stuff if you don't like the promptness of the OP here. Other people have been posting as well. I can't believe you'd actually complain about something like this!

For total defense you don't have to PAY for a subscription...when you buy the FAR software it comes with 90 days, which you activate but enter a CC so that after 90days they'll autorenew and charge you. If I'd have known all the BS I'd endure for this software I wouldn't have bought it, but since I have here's some observations:

1) It's nearly impossible to find how to login to your account.
2) If you use the totaldefense.com/mysubscription link referenced in the manual then it won't work at all.
3) If you use the login button located at totaldefense.com/unlimited it won't actually log you in.
4) Some of the support links on the site don't work (they reference an invalid url).
5) The correct link to login and cancel the autorenew (after you've activated the product) is this: https://my.totaldefense.com/Login2.aspx
6) Your subscription will be canceled, but you can still use it for the 90 days.
7) YOU DON'T HAVE TO INSTALL ANYTHING TO ACTIVATE THE PRODUCT...they couldn't pay me $100 to install this software after seeing how incredibly shady their website and entire registration/support process is.
8 (and most important observation) I will never buy anything from this company ever again...I do rebates all the time, but this company is purposely hiding the login for how to cancel your subscription...absolutely ridiculous.

Enjoy!

Proof of previous ownership submission requirements:
To claim your Upgrade rebate, you must send the following 2 items:
A. The original invoice of the competitor’s product purchase or a clear copy of it and
B. One of the following items:
Original CD or Photocopy of it
Screen Capture showing License Registration
Page 1 of the User Manual


Odd how they initially seem to say they want the original, but then say "but a copy is also ok".

Jagd said:   I chatted with a rebatesHQ agent and he stated that it does mean 1 per product per year.

However he also stated that if previous QB rebates did not have the per year clause then they do not count towards the limit.

So effectively you can only do 1 rebate that states per year each rolling 12 months (NOT Calendar months)

My last QB rebate was back in February from Staples before the company requirements and the per year clause so looks like I'm good.

Kept a copy of the agents chat just in case I have to fight the rebate.


Received the rebate today with no problems at all

Shoprunner barred me because I placed too many individual orders from Newegg. But as long as they offer free EggSaver shipping (which they always do on FAR software), I am fine with it. So I am in for WinZip.

I've never heard of this before... Did anyone else know that Shoprunner could ban you? I'm shocked that I haven't had any problems, then...
