    I agree, I never understood how US companies got away with this silly rebate schemes...
    I haven't seen any such system in other countries...

    It appears to happen with Sprint quite a bit too:

    Sprint is not a company with a sterling rebate track record. The Gizmodo article is right - probably 1/2 of the rebates won't be fulfilled regardless of the submission rate.

    No biggie.
    What's a "stamp"? Oh wait, I remember now, Pony Express and all that. Can't recall when I last used one. Wonder what they cost these days.

    Rebates are dishonest, but Sprint is no worse than any other company which uses them.

    Isn't this thread over with? It's been established that if you don't want to deal with the MIR buy it at Best Buy or RadioShack.
