I purchased Glidden flat paint in a shade of blue on 11/5/14. I was going over the same color in a guest bedroom so I barely used a gallon. After the holidays I wanted to spruce up a bit, and in doing so I moved some pictures around. Got out the spackle, covered the holes, and touched up the walls in a few spots with the leftover paint. Paint didn't match that well, but having done this many times before I just thought it had to dry. When it dried it matched even less. I have never had this experience before with a fairly recent paint job (just over 3 years). It is not the expense of the paint so much as I now have to repaint the whole bedroom, and it certainly wont be with Glidden paint.
I purchased Glidden paint on June 30, 2007 and saw that Home Depot was offering a rebate program for this purchase. I completed the form, attached the receipt, attached the bar code from the can and mailed the first week of July, 2007. I called the Glidden 800# on 10/10/07 to ask where my check was, and the service rep said it would be mailed out that week - 'sorry for the delay'.
I called again on 12/13/07 to ask where my check was, and the NEW service rep explained that the rebate program was 'taken over' by some funding company or something like that - telling me there were problems with the program and checks being sent. She ASSURED me that she saw my file, and asked me to verify the information; then stated that the check would be sent that week - for sure!!
It's now 2/20/08 - and I have NO check - and the Glidden 800# is NOT working and the website is NOT working! I guess I'll never see my check!
I've wasted time, effort, etc for this rebate and it leaves a bad reputation for Glidden and rebate programs in general.
