>> 4.07.2010

Remember how I planned on using a Cash for Appliances rebate towards a new refrigerator? Well, the rebate reservations began this morning at 7 AM... kinda.

They told us to keep trying, but the phones and website were both kicking people off left and right.

I was like many others who couldn't get through at all. After two hours of redials and page refreshing (without result)... I finally got in on the giant Twitter discussion:

I tried to be constructive instead of hostile...

Want to follow the drama? Go here and here.

This story is still "to be continued..." I'll be sure to update this post if I ever end up with a rebate! *sigh* The trouble I'll go through to save a little cash...

(1:21 PM) UPDATE: After six hours, I finally earned a rebate form through the website!! Oh, and someone attacked me on Twitter for getting it... go figure...

Sorry to hear it's a hassle! Hopefully they'll get their act together soon.

Hi Kasey,
I featured your DIY Anthro Necklace on my blog today! Thanks for the inspiration!

Fish gotta swim. Birds gotta fly. People gotta attack you on Twitter. Glad you got your rebate.

Ugh. They've had MONTHS to get this set up properly!

I just looked at Virginia's plan. For the washing machine I want, I could get $75...if I apply on April 28th and buy within 60 days.

I've heard there's a floor sample sale at Home Depot right now, so I might not wait for the $75. Hm.

I love reading your thoughts and ideas! Keep them coming!!
