I hate rebates;  however, I insist that I get mine when I buy something with
one.  Fry's Electronics is the most notorious IMHO.  Corsair Memory is vying
for top spot;  they owe me one that I've been after them 3 separate times
about.  Next time it goes to the California AG.

Rebates ought to be outlawed or required to be given at the time of purchase
possibly requiring one to complete a form then.
