I am writing to express my sincere disgust with how your company chooses to treat customers. Not that I feel its important to explain the situation again, however it will aid in your understanding. I purchased an item via Costco.com in November of 2006. After I received the item via UPS, I submitted the online rebate form. After several weeks of waiting, I received a denial notice stating the member number was incorrect. For the record, the member number was not incorrect, it is clearly printed on the back of my card. I resubmitted the rebate making sure all information was accurate. I waited an additional several weeks. I received another denial. I then called the rebate center and they informed me that I could only submit the rebate one time via internet and that I would have to mail the information to the rebate center in order to get the rebate. I did exactly that. Now several weeks later, I received another denial notice in the mail stating that the sku was incorrect. I am quite fed up with the constant jumping through hoops and wasting my time for a rebate. It has become obvious to me that your company would much rather play games and disrespect your customers by treating them as though if they were ignorant. Maybe if you waste enough of my time I will give up and your company gets to keep the $50.00 that rightfully belongs to me. I am here to say by all means keep the rebate. The way I see it, when I cancel my executive membership I will save $100.00 per year anyway. Also when I cancel my American Express costco card, I will save even more. Lets not forget how much I will save from not shopping at costco. If you look up my account, you will see that I spent almost $20,000 last year alone. But I can see that even the most dedicated of customers still get treated like garbage. I find it appalling that this is acceptable business practices. I will gladly take my business elsewhere, knowing that there are far better companies that will treat their customers with dignity and respect, and actually honor the rebates they offer. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me as I would most enjoy talking to a live person versus a company that hides behind denial letters.
