    Wonderful deal...unfortunately KWorld does a terrible job honoring their rebates.

    Uh-oh...what does that mean...they throw the rebate forms in the trash...
    or they just take a long time to send them.

    Notice they don't contract out a rebate company to process
    their rebates..instead they do it themselves..hmmm..maybe
    skip this one.

    I'm just saying I know not only from experience, but reading the experiences of many others, that they 'claim' they never get the rebate. even those who are on top of their rebates aren't to fond of this rebate.

    basically, if you want a headache, do it. otherwise, i would stay away from it.

    Exclamation

    This guy had problems w/ kworld...he re-emailed them all of his materials
    in October and got no response from them..
    He even contacted FTC and BBB

    http://ripoffreport.com/reports/ripoff216870.htm

    We need to make a list of companies that don't honor rebates...so
    we don't waste time on their garbage.

    One clue is they process their own rebates...like..sure...the
    company is going to give our money back to us..

    Danger..Danger..stay away from KWorld rebate..Spoofee please help
    us out by not posting rebates from such Companies..mmm...Crooks
    Apparently Jason Lin and Mei Chen who work for them should be put
    in jail.

    This website lists about 7 complaints...but think about the actual number
    of people who were denied rebate..but forgot about it..or who didn't happen
    post their complaint on this website. You likely could multiple 7 by 500
    or the thousands to get an actual number of people who had problem
    with KWorld.

    http://ripoffreport.com/results.asp?...&submit=Search


    here's one post...

    I submitted all the requested information. After several weeks of no rebate check, nor email contact, I contacted Kworld to inquire about the status of the rebate. I was told that it would not be honored, because I didn't write the item number on the envelope. I did not have an item number from Buy.com, I had only the Sku number from the receipt, and that is the number that I used.

    here's another...

    Purchased the ATSC-110 card from Newegg which had a $30 rebate (from the manufacturer Kworld) on Nov. 13, 2005--rebate also required the item be purchased at Newegg. After not receiving any response, I e-mailed Kworld. A "Jason Lin" replied saying I had sent the incorrect barcode. I called Kworld in Irvine, CA and spoke to Jason Lin (and Mei Chen on a separate occasion). I explained to Jason/Mei that the barcode I submitted was the only barcode printed on the box; he would not budge and kept insisting it was the wrong barcode. I provided a photograph of another box with the same barcode. They had boxes at their office and could have easily verified this. And still, the only thing they would keep repeating "Wrong barcode." Whatever "other" barcode sticker that was missing from my box is clearly Kworld's failure. Their rebate form only stated "Original UPC barcode cut from retail box" with no mention of what numbers should be in the barcode, as such, I am in full compliance with Jasthe rebate requirements. It was quite obvious Jason Lin and Mei Chen had absolutely no idea of what "customer service" meant nor comprehension at any acceptable level.

    Searching the internet revealed a pattern of Kworld's deception. All rebates are handled directly by Kworld. Typical Kworld rebate scamming scenario: they'll sit on the rebate until individual contacts them, then they may pay, ignore individual, or make some ridiculous excuse why the rebate has been voided with no possibilities of resubmission. Majority seems to go unpaid, that's how they make their money.

    I had to request the receipt from Buy.com. None of the emails sent were actual receipts just order processing letters. Wish me luck in getting my rebate.

    You can go back to Buy.com and print an on-line receipt. It is ok to use as your receipt. I've used it quite a few times without problems.

    Just keep a copy of all your paperwork and make sure you have a contact phone #, address, or e-mail address. Put the due dates in your calendar and just check on them after a few weeks to make sure they were received and processed.
