Micro Center has funded a rebate offer abandoned by consumer electronics manufacturer Gigafast. Reader Mitch received the good news from rebate-processor OnRebate.com.
Although Gigafast Inc.’s unresponsiveness to OnRebate’s repeated funding requests has delayed your rebate we are pleased to inform you that the above rebate claim has been funded by Micro Center. Micro Center wants to be sure that their valued customers receive their promised rebates and has arranged to fund the Gigafast rebates. This extraordinary gesture will allow OnRebate.com Inc. to issue payment to you in a prompt manner.
This incident only ends well because of Micro Center’s exceptional and unexpected intervention. We implore you, do not purchase products because of a rebate. All together now: rebates are scams. — CAREY GREENBERG-BERGER
