I'm posting this for two reasons, one is to vent, and two is to find out if anyone else has had a similar issue... On 11/27/2016 I purchased 2000 rounds of Remington ammo from Cabelas so I could participate in Remington's advertised Black Friday Mail-In Rebate, which entitled purchasers to a $5 dollar rebate per box of ammo. I bought 40 boxes, which was the maximum number allowed in the rebate. I mailed my UPC codes and rebate submission form on 12/13/16. The rebate submission deadline was 12/19/16, so I mailed my submission well before the deadline. On 1/16/2017 I received an email from Remington indicating that they had received my rebate submission and that they were processing my rebate. This email also included a link and a tracking number that I could use to monitor the status of my rebate. As of today I still had not received my rebate so I went online and checked the status of my rebate, the status update said I should have received a "response" on 2/19/2017. So I called the number on the rebate webpage and spoke with an operator who told me my rebate submission had been denied because it was postmarked on 12/27/2016, which was after the rebate deadline of 12/19/16. I told the girl she was very wrong, she disagreed and said she would file an appeal and I could call back in a week to see if I could get my rebate. At that point, I was pretty pissed. I knew I mailed my submission prior to the deadline but I had no clue where I had put the paperwork and USPS receipt. After searching for a while I finally checked the ammo can with the 2000 rounds of ammo in it and found all the paperwork for the rebate. Thankfully I had paid for USPS tracking and the tracking number confirmed the dates. So I called back, spoke to the same operator and I told her I have the receipt with the tracking number and that per USPS, they received my submission on 12/16/2016. She wanted me to fax her a copy of the receipt. I told her I wasn't faxing her anything and all I was going to do was file a complaint with the FTC over Remington's unethical business practices. Her immediate response was "I'm processing your rebate check right now sir." Unbelievable. I know Freedom Group, Remington's parent company, has run the company into the ground with their horrible QC and faulty guns but I never thought that they would outright lie in order to defraud customers. I'm debating actually filing a complaint with the FTC over this.
