It is obvious that Tigerdirect makes a killing offering large rebates to lure customers into believing that they will save money from making purchases here.
I suppose that would be true if they actually paid these rebates! If you actually follow the very strict rules and meet all of the requirements to qualify for the rebate - than they simply refuse to pay - blaming everyone else involved until you get so aggravated you stop asking for it.
Beware of rebate offers - consider yourself extremely lucky if you have ever received one of these checks - you are one of the few lucky ones!!
Although we have had one or two rebates sent by them we are still trying to get them to pay a refund for shipping costs that they said they would pay. I have posted another message regarding this in this forum.
They sold us a piece of garbage mobo and cpu that were not compatible and they knew that when they shipped it (when I rang the cpu company they knew immediately it was regarding TigerDirect without me even mentioning them).
Although they eventually refunded the cost of the goods - only after I launched a PAYPAL complaint - they are still stalling on the refund of the shipping costs. Its a matter of principal that we shall continue to request that money until they honour their word.
We shall never deal with them again. They are not reputable.
