11% rebate works out to about 4%. Our sales tax is 7%.
$100 item cost results in total cost of $107; mail in rebate is $11. Next purchase for $100 is again totaled at $107 resulting in a net price of $96 after rebate (obtained for previous purchase) is then deducted. Total of 2 purchases is $206 with rebate; $214 without rebate. $214 - $206 = $8.
Sort of a letdown.
Must mail in request and hope it's not rejected and wait for the rebate card. Ok if it's something you need now rather than wait for sale where the discount is before the tax is figured and you don't need to rely on getting that mail-in rebate.
Reason of review: Problems with payment.
