    I never think of the rebate when considering the price, basically assuming that I'll never get it. The only exception is so-called "in store rebates" where the rebate is figured into the cost when you're buying it. I just don't know why they can't call it a sale though.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    I guess I'm getting your rebates, too! I never have a problem getting rebates. But, yeah, the "instant rebates" in store are better.

    I would say that I never get a bit over a quarter of them. The first one was a $50 rebate for a $200 monitor. The second was for some fog lights for my car.

    I suspect they look for any reason to disqualify, but I carefully fill out the form, and make sure I send it in by the required deadline. I love the online ones, though, because you don't even have to mail anything in, and you get an email confirmation that you sent it in.

    Maybe they should call them "rebaits" instead since they are obviously bait used to sucker you into paying full price for something, and they keep doing it over and over.

    I am with Sparko, Rebates are silly. Instant Rebates or Coupons are better. :) Save money NOW!!!
