+ - Gigafast Fails To Fund Rebate Offers

Gigafast, manufacturer of networking equipment and consumer electronics, has failed to fund their rebate offers, according to an email circulated yesterday by rebate-processor OnRebate.com.

            "We regret to inform you that the above rebate claim has not been funded by the sponsoring manufacturer, Gigafast Inc., and therefore cannot be paid. Gigafast Inc. contracted with OnRebate.com Inc. to have OnRebate.com Inc. process Gigafast Inc. sponsored rebates but, in violation of the terms of this contract, Gigafast Inc. has not funded disbursements for several months and has not responded to our many funding requests or other attempts to reach them. As a result rebate disbursements to customers who purchased Gigafast Inc. products have not been made. At this point your rebate claim is being cancelled but your rebate details will be kept on file in the event that you are able to contact Gigafast, Inc. and get them to fund your claim.

            Unfortunately Onrebate.com has no further information available at this time. If you have any questions regarding the non-funding of your rebate claim please direct them to Gigafast Inc.:

            Gigafast Inc.
            17531 Railroad St #C
            City of Industry, CA 91748
            Phone: 626-964-2960
            Fax: 626-964-2690

            We apologize for this regrettable situation. OnRebate.com Inc. has tried repeatedly over the course of several weeks to secure funding for your rebate claim. Weve done everything reasonably possible on your behalf but have not gotten a response.


            OnRebate.com Inc. customer service"

OnRebate is known to be stingy with rebate disbursements. Is this bad karma in action?"
