Radio Shack / no rebate received!

1 United States Review updated:

I purchase a TV from local Radio Shack less than 30 days ago. The TV came with a $200.00 Rebate. Well to make a long story short my Wife threw the Box out before I could get the UPC Code.

In order to get the refund u need the Original UPC Code from the Box. I emailed the rebate center and they in essence said too bad. They did verify that the UPC Code is on the receipt and they are requesting the UPC Code to prevent Fraud. I explained to them that I would provide any document they needed to prove that this was a valid claim incl. the Radio Shack Credit Card statement that I had opened the same day i made the purchase. I understand that they have certain requirements but the Bottom line is that it is only ONE UPC Code per rebate. Is there anything that I can do or am I SOL! I thought about going to Small Claims Court and filing a Claim! Thanks for any info you can give Good or bad!!!

    Radio Shack - phone cords
    United States

    We were sold phone cords and offered a lifetime warranty for a extra 20$
    Then the store filed bankruptcy...
    so what do we do with our 35$ cords +20$ for warranty with no more ratio shack?!
    This seems like a last minute scam before the company closed. Very unfair.

    TA I really hope you haven't tried to take this to small claims court because you would get NOTHING for it. It was your wife that threw the box away that had the UPC on it NOT radioshack. That'd just be a waste of time.

    Moral of the story: DON'T THROW OUT THE BOX and then blame us for your shortcomings, when it was YOU that lost the UPC code.

    I purchased a Sirius Receiver and Boombox from Radio Shack on 12/8/06 as a Christmas gift. The Receiver had a Sirius rebate which I have received. The Boom Box had a $40 Radio Shack Rebate. The paperwork indicated that purchase had to be made by 12/31/06. Everything was submitted in accordance with their forms but I received a letter stating the purchase was made outside of the purchase period which they stated was 12/03/06. The date 12/31/06 is in 2 places on the rebate form. I re-submitted and am still waiting for a response. Anyone else have this problem?
