DISH Rebates - Redemption Nightmare
It has been sometime -- maybe next to never -- that I've experienced the kind of frustration I have had with trying to redeem the DISH rebate. I became a DISH customer on July 7. As soon as my first new billing statement generated just a few days later, I printed a hard copy; completed the redemption form as instructed and mailed. To make a long story short, I gave sufficent time for the rebate to begin processing -- I queried the rebate website and telephoned, too and it indicated "no activity". I mailed 2 more redemption forms, with the latter sent certified mail so that I would know a human hand had received it. And, indeed I received the post card by return mail with a signature indicating the redemption form arrived at its destination. Again, I gave sufficient time for my form to begin jumping through its hoops. I checked for rebate activity, and still none. I finally emailed firstname.lastname@example.org on August 30. Within a day, I had a reply with an apology and a note that the credits would be automaticallly added and that I should see them on my next billing statement. My next statement generated September 22 and there were no credits showing. I have replied to the email I received from email@example.com so I will update you on how this transpires. Any other suggestions or has anyone else dealt with this rebate hassle? I love my DISH programming, DVR, etc but this rebate hassle and their customer service is far from lovable.

Yes, this rebate hassle is very frustrating. My story is very similar to yours except that firstname.lastname@example.org did take care of the rebate and credits showed up in the next bill. Good luck and keep pushing the people at email@example.com until you get it resolved.
Same here. It showed as a AT250 credit, for whatever reason.

Today the rebate query page showed that they had mailed me a check for $1.00. What?? It also said the account number was wrong but it showed up right.
I went for the on line chat option a few minutes ago and the guy wasn't very assuring saying something like "if you filled it out right you have no problem and will get the credits". Yeah, right.
If I had an ulcer it would be acting up now.
Anybody had the rebate status page come up with "$1.00 check mailed"?
I got a 50 dollar credit this month but it was supossed to be 100, im deciding if i should call in and hassle it
