    Tiger Direct doesn't pay their rebates!!!! Now they even advertise they will guarantee they pay them if you send it registered mail. You shouldn't have to mail it registered mail to get your money. There's even a website dedicated to exposing them. www.tigerdirectsucks.org They screwed me out of a $70 rebate on an LCD monitor.

    Quoting one persons year old blog that does not have a resolution is not very fair against Tiger Direct, that could have been a simple mistake.

    This website, however, really kills Tiger Direct and their rebates.

    The site doesn't even specify if this is IDE or SATA... that's kind of essential information.

    You know, I've never had one rebate lost from TigerDirect. But I send ALL of my rebates, even those to other vendors, by registered mail so that I have proof that they received them.

    Well, You are lucky. I did everything right. I made all the copies. I sent in everything required. They approved the rebate. They "mailed a check". It never arrived. It took another 6 months of complaining in email, by phone, by USPS mail, sending in a complaint to the better business bureau and the states attorney, before they finally mailed a check. And that was a rebate they APPROVED!

    I will NEVER buy from Tiger Direct again because of their rebates.
