2. "All claims ,,,,, and must be accompanied by the original sales receipt and original UPC barcode from your eMachines box." And that's exactly what I sent them, the originals.
3. "eMachines desktop computer cannot be returned to retailer once the rebate fulfillment form has been submitted." That's because you'll never get a rebate and eMachines doesn't want you to return their computer. You have to wait 8 weeks for the rebate. What retailer will let you return a computer once used two months later? So, who lost $75?
4. "Keep copies of all material submitted. Materials received become the property of eMachines Inc." For what? Why keep copies? They only receive what they want to say they receive. I asked the rep over the phone if I could send eMachines a copy of my copy. I was told they don't accept copies. Go figure.
Don't waste your time with eMachines rebates. It's a fraud, just another
way to get you to buy their merchandise. I was lucky. I bought the computer
for my daughter in school and was waiting for her to visit to pick it up.
The box was never opened so I returned it (MAINLY because of eMachines
attitude about the rebate) and purchased a Hewlett Packard.
