Okay, this is a pet peeve of mine especially around Christmas time. Buy $75 dollars worth of our merchandise & get a "free" $100 gift card...The word "free" means you are under no obligation to buy anything right? When will companies understand this factual reality? Sigh...
Rebates are another rip off too. Send in a receipt/proof of purchase & then wait for an eternity to get a check etc. etc. Just take the discount off the top of the big ticket item okay. Again, not a real deal here or savings either in a timely & prompt fashion either.

Staples seems to be the best with their rebates. The last two times I bought something that was supposed to have a 10dollar visa gift card attached to it, it arrived in about 10 days. Sure it would be easier just to knock the 10.00 off at the POS and let Staples collect it, but I was able to use it elsewhere so that was a plus.
