2) Immediately print out any rebate forms associated with a product.
I usually print out rebates online BEFORE ordering a product. These rebate forms disappear very quickly from websites. This has recently become a problem with Staples when they yank the rebates during the middle of the promotion. For online orders, you could also save the rebate forms to your hard drive at the same time as the online receipts. Most <!--Word2URL:B&M--><span title="Brick and mortar store (A physical retail store as opposed to an online merchant)">B&M<!--endWord2URL--> stores have copies of rebate forms at the customer service desk. Many <!--Word2URL:B&M--><span title="Brick and mortar store (A physical retail store as opposed to an online merchant)">B&M</span><!--endWord2URL--> stores, such as Best Buy, have the rebate form in their computer. Just ask for extra copies. </span>

Not sure how this would go over, but here is a sample letter demanding your refund:
April 17, 2006
Having trouble getting your rebate? Here's a sample demand letter you can send to the company that's stiffing you. You should send it certified mail, return receipt requested. Keep a copy of the letter and a copy of all the product codes, receipts, etc. Also, be sure to keep the receipt that shows the letter was received and signed for by someone at the company.
You should send copies to the Federal Trade Commission, the Attorney General of your state and the state where the company is headquartered, and to ConsumerAffairs.Com and other consumer organizations and publications. It is not necessary to use certified mail for the copies, only for the letter you send to the company.

Re: Failure to Receive Rebate by Offer Date
To Whom It May Concern:
I purchased a (product details) on (date) in (city and state.) My decision to buy this product was based upon your offer of a mail-in rebate of $____ ("offer"). My purchase of the product was my acceptance ("acceptance") of your offer, creating a binding and enforceable contract between us.
I have performed my obligations under the contract. I paid the full purchase price and proceeded to fill in the rebate form provided by you. I included all information requested to process my rebate, but to date I have not received a check in the amount of $____.
I respectfully request you process payment and mail it to me at the address indicated within 30 days. For your convenience, I have attached copies of all information originally sent to you.
If I do not receive payment in full by (date 30 days from mailing,) I will file complaint reports with the Federal Trade Commission, the Attorney General of (your state) and (the company's state,) as well as selected consumer advocacy organizations and may, at my option, pursue whatever other legal avenues of redress as may be deemed appropriate.
I am sending copies of this letter to these agencies and organizations to encourage your compliance.
Thank you for your prompt attention and resolution of this matter.
