Office Max Ends Mail-in-Rebates

Starting this weekend, there will be no more purchases to be proofed, receipts to be scrounged from trashcan depths, or nail-biting as your bets fail on the misbegotten hope that your rebate check will arrive in time to keep your checks from bouncing. Starting this weekend, Office Max will end it’s mail-in-rebate program.

“Rebates were the No. 1 customer complaint we were getting,” said Ryan Vero, OfficeMax’s chief merchandising officer.

In the place of rebates, in-store discounts will be favored.
