Reader Kicks T-Mobile's Butt Over Denied Rebate

Kathlene used her mad consumer skills to force T-Mobile into honoring the rebate they were supposed to give her. She slayed their bogus reasons for denying her rebate. She escalated, and escalated. Finally, she emailed an extremely well-crafted letter to CEO Robert Dotson (pictured, looking like a pile of badass).

Now she’s getting her rebate.

Ms. Kathlene,
In an effort to amicably resolve this matter, T-Mobile will be happy to apply a credit of $30.00 towards the pre-paid account which would total 300 minutes for the mail in rebate. Please let me know should you wish to accept this offer.

Please let me know should you have any further questions or concerns regarding this matter.

Thank you,

Brenda Shaw
Executive Customer Relations Specialist,
Office of the CEO.

Brenda,

I’m sorry, but a $30 credit is not an acceptable resolution. I have satisfied all terms of the rebate contract, and I expect T-mobile to satisfy their obligations as well. Therefore, the only satisfactory resolution I would accept is a $30 rebate check, per the terms of T-mobile’s rebate contract.

Regards,
Kathlene
