    BlackBerry PlayBook Back-At-School Offer

    this promo ran back in September.

    I sent it in September 14th, it was "approved October 4th"

    They claim it will take 6-8 weeks. Considering it's been 9 weeks. Quick ridiculous. I emailed the woman again (Margaret). Hopefully will get a response back again.

    But whoever the 3rd party RIM outsourced the rebate checks; they are horrible. I've never had issues with rebates my entire life. Never had one that took this long. All my rebates always come early but 9 weeks is a very long time.

    I am not talking about Staples rebate. This is a very specific RIM back at school promo that ran from September 7-22nd.

    I just sent an email to Margaret. My approval date was 10/6 which will be 10 weeks ago tomorrow. I have not received mine either. The company is called The Wireless Source, bit I have no phone number. This is crazy.

    I've waited much longer than that for phone rebates. That's why I don't deal with that stuff anymore if I can avoid it. If the rebate is legit then give it immediately. That's my opinion of course but I do feel for everyone who is still waiting.

    I have not received mine yet either and it is over three months since I submitted the documentation. An email response to an inquiry indicated approval on Oct 5 with delivery in 6 to 8 weeks; it is about 10 weeks so far.

    I sent a couple more emails requesting some update but so far have not received any reply.

    It would be good to know if anyone has received the $100 mastercard.

    This fvkkery has caused a lot of grief for me... I haven't ever gotten a direct reply from them, and have not received my rebate yet either.

    Way to go RIM... nothing like pissing off your best customers...

    I sent a follow-up email to them 5 days ago. They still have not responded. Maybe the rebate cards are being used to fund the write-down of the Playbooks.

    FYI - I did my PlayBook rebate on the very last day - and received a $100 cheque in the mail from them stating "This is for your recent BlackBerry PlayBook purchase". I also did the trade up and got another cheque a few days before that stating "This is for your recent cell phone trade in". I received both within the last week.

    Yeah, I got the same one. So if I read that right, are the Canadians getting a $100 USD Mastercard.

    I received 3 of the same messages on the 22. One for each rebate I submitted. I have to say "It's about time!". I'm just glad they're finally sending out the rebate cards.
