Default rebate?

How would I go about submitting for one of the rebates? I know that a lot of companies I dealt with in the past trying to get rebates from can be really sleazy so I figured I'd ask here first.

I went to buy a Stiletto 10 figuring it would be enough for me. I also bought a home kit with it. This was on 1/05/07. Three days later, on 1/08/07, I decided that I was going to take it back and get a Stiletto 100. So I gave them the difference. I have two reciepts now, one with the stiletto 10 crossed out and "Returned" written over it, and the home kit. The other reciept shows the Stiletto 10 being returned and exchanged for a Stiletto 100.

Are they gonna give me a hard time and try to screw me out of the rebate?

Before December 31st they were allowing the purchase of the items on seperate receipts. Now they specifically say "both the receiver and applicable docking kit from the same retailer on one receipt". You should have asked the store to return and resell you the car dock also.

You could try, play it stupid and say you were going for the rebate and the clerk sold you the wrong radio, so you went back and got the S100. Being that this is the only rebate within the time of your purchase(s), it's your only chance.

Well, I didn't bring the home dock back becuase I'd have to bring all the pieces back too, and the clerk gave me no trouble with the return, so I wasn't gonna be too big of a pain in the ass...

seeing as I'm still within the 30 day return window on both things I might just see if the people at radioshack can make me one reciept...

the one reciept restriction really does seem like a way to screw people out of the rebate though...

Good luck. You can pre-file and track your rebate online, https://www.web-rebates.com/sirius/

You will still need to mail the papers, but it is nice to be able to check on it. There is a minimum activation of 60 days to qualify, so don't expect the money for at least 90.
