Good Luck Getting Your Rebate From Amp'd Mobile

CBS 13 has the story of a 13-year old kid who saved up his money and bought a pre-paid Amp’d mobile phone from Circuit City. The phone was $100 with a $120 rebate.

The kid filled out his rebate form, sent it in, but never got his money. When he called Circuit City they told him to call Amp’d mobile. When he called Amp’d mobile he got a recording.

Then he got a text message telling him that Amp’d was cutting off service on July 31. Amp’d was bankrupt. Whoops.

Now all he can do is submit a claim form and hope that it gets paid.
