    Does anyone have any information or advice on how to obtain the $20 rebate offered with the Dick Van Dyke DVD sets, if the purchase was made from an online merchant? The mail-in rebate forms included in the two box sets indicate that "original sales receipts" must be supplied, but of course, there is no such receipt for an online purchase.

    I have e-mailed the contact address at the dvdondvd.com web site, twice now in the past three weeks, but have received no reply.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    You should be able to use the confirmation e-mail from your etailer as your "receipt".

    Also, the dvdondvd.com website can't help you here. They didn't put these out (despite what they want you to believe). You will need to contact Image directly via their website www.image-entertainment.com.

    From what other posters have said, they're very good at responding.

    Good luck.

    David,

    In some shipments, the paperwork included is nothing more than a packing list (vs. a sales receipt).

    However, I have re-examined what I received from Deep Discount DVD with the Dick Van Dyke sets, and I believe it should indeed serve as a receipt.

    Thanks to all who responded.

    Kipp

    Travis, that was the worst joke I've ever heard.


    On topic, I don't think that one would be able to use the confirmation e-mail from an online retailer because someone could conceivably order the titles from Amazon (or another e-tailer), print out the confirmation e-mail, and then proceed to cancel their online order.

    On the other hand, the packing slip, which DDD includes with their items, details the price and date of order, so that should be acceptable.

    REBATE UPDATES, anyone??

    Anybody else get their $20 back?

    I have not. Three months and counting. (And I did not use the Best Buy special offer.) [​IMG]

    For those of you actually getting rebates from these sorry ass scumbags, good for you, but if you haven't, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    I bought both seasons shortly after release. I bought from a B & M store. Sent the rebate form in right away. Have heard/received nothing. Zip. Nada.

    I sent in my rebate on November 3 and still have not received it. I also called Image a couple of weeks ago and was told the checks were going to be mailed the following week. Doesn't look like that happened.

    I waited a bit to send mine in. It was probably about six weeks ago. I forgot how much time it said to allow for, but I certainly am not going to be one of the few who can report having gotten the rebate check back.

    I am aware of the issue of people being denied their rebates because they recieved a $20 BB gift card when they purchased their sets on the same Best Buy receipt.

    But for those of us who have indisputable entitlement to our rebate checks, is there something we can do as a collective to get them? If Image does not honor these, I won't know what to think.

    Well, considering that the Best Buy gift card as an excuse to not issue a rebate is completely fraudulent and bogus, it's not much of a stretch of the imagination to figure they'll do whatever it takes to avoid giving the rebate to anyone. They certainly were very quick to inform the Best Buy users that they weren't going to honor their commitment, so it's not like they can't be quick. But I guess they move a lot faster when sending out illegal rejection notices, than in sending out checks to honor their obligations. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I received my rebate on January 28, 2004. Coincidently, it's been so long since I mailed it in that I had forgotten it, until I found this thread on January 27!

    I already mentioned that I received mine back in December plus I have spoken with a friend at work about this, and he also received his back in Dec.
    Maybe the Canadian ones are going out a bit faster since a smaller amount would obviously have been sold here. I had to send my receipts to Toronto from Winnipeg Manitoba.

    They must be catching up (so to speak). I got my rebate on Feb. 20, three months and a day after I mailed in the forms.

    I got my check sometime last month and the Deep Discount DVD invoice is what I sent in, so that will serve as a sales receipt.
