OCZ rebate super-slow but finally arrived (19 weeks after mailing)

Not sure if this is the right forum but I just want to moan/warn.

Registered for the Vertex 2 $30 rebate Nov 5 (a Friday) and the scan online shows my mail to them was postmarked Nov 8 (Monday). I finally received the MasterCard two days ago, March 21. This is with the "Basic" service level since I don't want them taking additional money just to do their job faster.

Dear Brad [...],

We are pleased to inform you that your rebate, with the Basic service level you selected has been processed and approved on 11/29/2010.

Your MasterCard will be mailed within 8-10 weeks . Please contact us if you have any additional questions.[/QUOTE]

It actually took over 12 weeks after that for the "Payment Sent for Processing" status, and it still wasn't mailed at that point (letters don't typically take a month to arrive from the US). I didn't actually note the postmark before disposing of the envelope, silly me.

Thats about normal time frame for their MIR. Took me another month to finally get a CSR that would re-issue it into cheque form so I could deposit it in the bank. Can't remember now if that cheque ever came or if I ever deposited it :facepalm:

Which reminds me I gotta do the same thing again for my Kumho tires CC MIR that I also got last year.
