I bought a new Remington 700 this fall and sent in the rebate for $40. Before I sent in the rebate I emailed Remington to check to see if indeed the rifle qualified for the rebate and was assured that it did qualify. I got what I thought was my rebate yesterday but it was a rejection saying that I would not be receiving my rebate. I wonder why a big company like Remington feels it has to screw the buyer of their product for $40 promised when you bought their product. I called their resolution center and got a big run around from the guy I talked to. I will no longer be buying any new products from Remington. I will still buy used if I find what I want. I guess that is what happens when a formerly Great gun company gets bought up by a company like Cerberus Capital Management that seems to run everything it touches into the ground. To me the rebate offering was just a bait and switch type of deal except their was no switch, only the bait.
