This really irks me. And is another annoyance I have with US Cellular. Now that they've gone to a no-contract plan, I am going to be looking around for other options. Until then, I have to figure out how to spent this $100. I made the purchase through my legal practice, and most of my expenses are for fixed items: rent, salary for an assistant, bar dues. None of which can be paid with the rebate card. It also expires in October, so I don't want to let it slip my mind.
Beware readers. Rebates are no longer what they used to be. They are designed to get you to spend. We are living in a Material World!
