Winchester rebate??? Login/Join 
Member
posted
So before Christmas I bought a bunch of Winchester Shotgun ammo that had a mail in rebate. I bought some for my wife's 20 ga and I bought some for my son for Christmas for his 12 ga shotgun.
We clipped the upc code from the boxes and downloaded and printed the rebate forms. I got envelopes ready and sent them in, in two separate envelopes. One had my name on it and the other my sons name. I enclosed the sale slip with the ammo price circled.
Today I went online to find the status of the rebate and it says; We have not received your rebate form. Maybe one....but two lost in the mail?? I took them to the post office and gave them to the clerk, not some box.
Has anybody else had this with Winchester?

That sucks I've never had that issue, but I can't say I've ever done a Winchester rebate... I did the Remington one maybe October or something and it went smooth... hopefully they find them and get you taken care of.

I did email them today. I got my rebates on American Eagle ammo back already from before Christmas. I cannot remember if I have done Winchester rebates before. I was actually worried about not getting the American Eagle rebate, because I went online to do it and whenever I put in the UPC code from the boxes, it rejected them saying there was no rebate on that ammo. I sent that in and got it back. I knew there was on that one. I could have bought any brand of shotgun ammo, the store I was at, a Field and Stream had tons of brands.

I have had this happen with other rebates. It is not infrequent. Often the rebate is farmed out to another company to process. A phone call or email usually solves the issue. Only once did they ask for another copy of the form. It is poor business to screw people over for stuff like this, so they generally take your word for it. The last time it happened to me was with Springfield Armory. I finally received it six months later. Apparently lots of folks had similar delays.

I sent one in for some BST rifle ammo at the end of December. Just got and email from them on Monday 3/6 that it had been received and accepted, but will take another 4-6 weeks for processing. Eek

I guess I should have made then sign when they got the letter. At least I would have proof of it.
If it was only 5$, but it is 40$.
It is not the biggest gripe in my life so I guess I will just let it go.....gone. I feel better.

Making them sign makes no difference, so you saved money there. They can always say they got a blank envelope. Learned this from an attorney friend who does not bother with certified mail.

I think they will make this good. They are probably just behind. These companies usually employ someone to answer their emails. Let us know what happens.
