Testrepparttar product before removing any required item offrepparttar 147399 packaging. Most places won't accept returns without complete packaging. Carefully print your information onrepparttar 147400 rebate form. Ifrepparttar 147401 company can't read (or mis-reads) your information, you are not going to receive anything. I would suggest putting a return address label onrepparttar 147402 form instead of printing. Always cross out your credit card and number! Gather allrepparttar 147403 items that you are required to send in and make a COPY for your records. Write on your copyrepparttar 147404 date you mailedrepparttar 147405 rebate andrepparttar 147406 processing time and point of contact.

Fast forward >>. Ifrepparttar 147407 date is one week pastrepparttar 147408 maximum processing time stated and you have not received your rebate check, callrepparttar 147409 point of contact. Some companies hope you will forget aboutrepparttar 147410 rebate and do not processrepparttar 147411 rebate unless called. I just received a rebate that was three weeks overdue after calling to check on it four days earlier. The person tried to tell me that I would have to wait 60 days fromrepparttar 147412 date they presumably issuedrepparttar 147413 check to file a claim (more time to forget). I mentioned a possible :-( action I could take and suddenly there is a check inrepparttar 147414 mailbox. You decide!
