This is another case of ripoff using rebates. nI bought a Yamakawa DVD-R 4.7GB 4x Media from ecost.com on 8/26/05. The product qualified for a $15 mail in rebate. I submitted all the forms, UPC, and other documents they required from me. I also received an email confirming my rebate submission on 9/14/05. nIn the email, the listed the following website to check the rebate status: nHowever, as of today(5/14/05), I’ve not heard anything from them. Its almost 8 months since I received the submission confirmation email. nI tried to check with the website that was listed in the confirmation email. But, it doesn’t exist. I also tried to check the manufacturer website (www.yamakawadirect.com) – what a coincidence! It also doesn’t exist. nFinally, I checked ecost.com from where I purchased the product. Even there, I couldn’t find the rebate information pertinent to this product. nIn fact, I bought 2 more products(from other companies) from ecost.com that had rebates but I haven’t received any rebates from them too. nBetter beware of ecost.com. Especially rebates that come from yamakawa. nRashidnWestminster, ColoradoU.S.A.
