Re: Speak Your Voice! Rebate Programs - Legitimate or Deceptive?

I try to avoid rebates, including those that go toward gasoline purchases.
I feel they are orchestrated to trick the purchaser into "filing" for a lower price, instead of the company "offering" the price reduction.
I also find they are arbitrarily administered, although there are some companies (OfficeMax comes to mind) where it's just a part of doing business, and I have had no bad experiences.
