+ - The End of Rebates?

Submitted by
grapeape writes " has an interesting article discussing the status of the mail-in-rebate. Several chains such as Office Max have completely eliminated rebates while other others like Staples and Microcenter have gone the internet route and simplified the rebate process with online submission and tracking. Just when things seemed to be improving, Rhode Island enacted a law which requires retailers give printed rebates upfront, leaving the store to do the paperwork for them. Connecticut is now working on a similar bill. How are manufactures likely to respond? Is this the end of the Mail-In-Rebate or just the beginning of a more consumer friendly version?"
