I'm not sure exactly what rebate you're talking about, but usually rebates are done through 3rd party rebate processors.

 

I hope it works out for you though!

When did you send it in? It usually takes 8-10 weeks before you receive your rebate.

I originally sent it on time the

rebate said I had the wrong dated rebate form so I sent it again

Hi,

You are not alone, almost the same thing happened to me.

I sent in a rebate form during May 2014 for the Cooler Master NotePal X3, it is now December, and still haven't got my rebate.

I called in for three to four times, and they always told me to be patient or to carefully check my mail.

I am extremely unhappy because it was just not worth the the time and money for the never received $5 rebate.

I don't feel like buying from this company again.

Sorry to hear you had issues with your rebate, but keep in mind that rebates are done through rebate processing companies and not directly by Cooler Master.

 

Additionally, the rebates potentially could have nothing to do with Cooler Master, since some rebates are offered by the retailer.

Well, companies like Apple design iPhones, and asks some other company to mass produce them. If an iPhone went wrong in production, Apple couldn’t just tell their buyers: Hey, I was only responsible for designing it. Go and find fault with the company who produced them…

 

So… even if rebates were handed out to some other third party company for processing and are not processed by Cooler Master itself, I believe Cooler Master should have had the choice to pick out which company they wanted to cooperate with. If they choose to cooperate with some shaky third party company to process their rebates, that also reveals something about the company to us consumers. And since Cooler Master should play a major role in deciding who to cooperate with and who not to, they are not totally fault-free.

 

The same goes with the retailers, and I guess that is why there are numerous other well-known brands out there that advocate people to buy from their “authorized†dealers or retailers. It’s really not just about selling products. Every little bit contributes to a company’s reputation, and Cooler Master should keep that in mind.

I understand where you're coming from, and I totally agree. I deal with rebates on a regular basis as well (unfortunately). 

 

I just wanted to say that there is a possibility the rebate had nothing to do with CM. Many retailers choose to run their own promotions as well, with nothing to do with the manufacturer. I don't know exactly which party set up the rebate, so I can't make any conclusions on that. Also keep in mind that there is always a chance that the postal service can lose rebates. There are many steps involved in mail-in-rebates, so there are many steps that a problem can occur, which is why I avoid mail-in-rebates as often as possible.
