Hmmm price matching stresses me. But I guess they can't have their 'own' code for beats.
It just isn't Black Friday when it is Thursday.......

A mail-in rebate is like a "we'll do it next time" promise from an alcoholic, non-custodial parent. You can be hopeful, but it's not something you should depend on.

I always do rebates if it makes it worth it, but I also price shop. Nice you can get a rebate from a manufacture and buy it somewhere cheaper to even save more.

I do the menards rebates all the time. They do it to get you back in the store. Never had an issue with getting mine from menards. Even got a couple of missed mailing date sent out.

I remember the days of CD's and DVD's free after rebate or near free. I have some left but not many. some of them $20 and up rebates I spend the $ to track and get signature receipt on them. Had a few pull we never got it, oh really, interesting, I have so and so signed for it at your address.

I don't mind doing the rebates online, but mail in rebates are a pain. I feel compelled to make a copy of everything and then there is the wait for the rebate. I consider myself organized with my receipts but I am not a big fan of rebates.

I've always gotten every rebate I've sent in for. I don't care if there is a rebate...if the end deal is better I go for the rebate, everytime
