I've had three instances where TigerDirect has offered a rebate on an item, only to never send it to me once the rebate form was sent in to them.
The first two were small, less than $20 each. But the third was a $200 rebate on a complete computer. After repeated calls and emails, which were always answered with "We have recieved your rebate information and are processing it now, please allow 4-6 weeks..." which went on for almost 6 months. I packed the computer up and sent it back to them postage due. I then contacted my credit card and requested a chargeback.
I won't buy anything from them again.

The Wealthy and Big Industry now own the lands surrounding our fresh water supplies [okay] the land surrounding it; pumping and bottling it before it ever reaches it's destination.
