pkp413 said:   Questions for Newegg rebate pros, how do you match up the cards they send with rebates? I am having hard time figuring it out, they don't mention anything but the rebate amount on the card/mailer and I have multiples with the same amount...online tracking also does not state the card# for the offer after the rebate has been fulfilled.

Parago: Tracking number and/or company name should be on the card and/or mailer

Velocity Fulfillment (RebateAccess / Status-Now): There's some numbers on the mailer that may be sequence numbers but nothing particularly useful. If you don't want to call (and if you do report back on how it goes), you're stuck guessing based on the date mailed, date received and amount.

4MyRebate:On the tracking page the "Reward Card processing" has a confirm number listed. You used to be able to give this "proxy number" to the phone number on the back of the card (AMEX) and get the last 4 digits, but this may have stopped working.

I am having hard time figuring it out, they don't mention anything but the rebate amount on the card/mailer and I have multiples with the same amount...online tracking also does not state the card# for the offer after the rebate has been fulfilled.I just received a Newegg/Visa prepaid debit card as the 'award' for a Newegg rebate. I don't find anything on the card or the mailer it came attached to that allows me to link it up to the actual rebate promotion that it's for. In my case, I only had one outstanding Newegg rebate, so there's no ambiguity, but I can definitely see the problem if you have more than one due from Newegg with the same amounts. I would hope that a call to the number listed on the rebate form you submitted would get you the necessary information.

Not all people do this, but I usually keep track of my rebates by scanning/copying them and then putting the file into a folder (i've started getting lazy and putting them onto google and named it rebates with a subfolder called done...) and then match the amount to the rebate that I sent. I've only recently started doing the Newegg rebates since they're single rebates (and not one regular one and 1 upgrade) so, we'll see how it goes.

I have to admit, it gets a little confusing if there are multiple rebates from the same manufacturer for the same amount. otherwise, it should be manageable. hope this helps

I don't know where New egg's rebates fit within the puzzle, but here are some generalities:

Well, that IS a challenge!. First, you MUST pay attention to the confirmation emails you receive (IF you receive them!). The email has the Tracking Number (7-9 digit number) which helps track your rebate up to a certain point. The email will also have a link to the Rebate Company's website so you can check the Status of your rebate. Personally, when I was doing bunches of rebates (I did 560 Between Oct. 2011 & Oct. 2012) I had made up my own Excel spreadsheet, giving Date of submission, Title of rebate, who was paying, where I bought it, submission method (mail/electronic/both), Tracking Number, Rebate Company, Rebate/Offer number, Name used, Who got the money, and a column for "Valid"/etc., and another column for date of latest info. Also used color coding system. It was necessary for keeping up with my submitted rebates. NOW, let's go to the two legs of Rebate World. Ones you CAN figure out, then ones you CANNOT figure out.

First - The ones you CAN identify. Like Kaspersky, Corel, Iolo, Nero, Panda, Webroot, Acronis, Nitro and some others. If paid by check, the Tracking Number is on the front of the check, above your address or at the top of your check. Norton & McAfee are paid by Debit Cards (these should be outlawed!), and the paper the card is stuck to will have your Tracking Number at the upper right of the paper.

Second - The ones I CANNOT identify. Like AVG, Bitdefender, Nuance, New egg and some others which pay by debit card (AMEX/Visa/etc.). These lousy Rebate Companies cannot be bothered to put the Tracking Number on ANY means of payment, thereby eliminating just about any chance of determining WHICH $20 rebate you just got a debit card for. Calling Rebate Company or Software Rebate Center is a waste of your time - no knowledge there.

Then there are ALL the others who use some combination of stuff, and you will have about ZERO chance of identifying which is which.

And there is the wonderful Staples Easy Rebate, which should be allowed in the First Category. BUT - Staples (for some unknown and unjustifiable reason) sees fit to continue with their Step One of processing: Change the rebate Tracking Number and tell no one what the new number is. Yes, it can be followed, but is more complicated than all the others. So when you receive your Staples Easy Rebate check, it will have a nice 9-digit Tracking Number above your address. But it is useless because - Remember Staples STEP ONE? - Change the Tracking Number and tell no one!

So, you can identify some, you can't identify others, and some Rebate Processors don't know their a$$ from a hole in the ground. I won't guarantee this info, and it's just the tip of the iceberg, and is always subject to change and you won't know till you're out $$$$$. I quit doing rebates when Kaspersky decided they needed the whole top or bottom of the box for a rebate. McAfee & some others got it all screwed up, and won't publish what the "screw you" rules are. I think Norton is going the way of McAfee, so keep an eye out. Good luck!

I was referring to the black Newegg prepaid cards they send for Newegg rebates (those submitted on Newegg.rebateaccess.com - not the ones from Symantec/Prago/McAfee/StatusNow etc., I know how to track those). They do not have tracking# or any sort of reference number nor do they allude to the product the rebate is for, not on the mailer or the card itself. I have 5 $20 rebates pending from last year and I have no idea which one the $20 card I just received is for. Yes, for unusual amounts/unique amount, like $10.99 or $70, I can use the amount to line them up. But not for ones where I have multiple rebates pending for the same amount. They are more or less like BitDefender cards with no way to tie to a particular submission for that amount.

Are all 5 of the $20 cards marked as shipped on the online tracking? You should be able to narrow it a bit down using that but it's going to be pretty hard otherwise. The "mailing" date is one month before the "you should receive it by" date listed on the tracking.

As a note RebateAccess and Status-Now are run by the same company; you can even track some of the NE ones submitted on RA at the SN site.

Yup. "Second Category" type of rebate. Add it and be done.

So far I've never had enough outstanding that that was a problem. Only once have I had two outstanding for the same amount and they were close together, I could simply hold the first check until the second showed and then take both of them out of my pending folder.

That's how I handle it also, minus Google. I scan everything I mail and delete it when I get the rebate. If files that are too old are in the directory I see what's up.

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!


I made the mistake of buying some Total Defense software. I'm going to cancel autorenew function of the subscription now, but I'm worried the rebate processor will drag their feet and not process the rebate before the 3 month free subscription expires and then deny the rebate because their terms state the activation must be valid at time of rebate processing or something like that.

Have you folks received Total Defense rebates in the past? Any issues?

I'll never buy any of their products again.
