Rebate note yet received

I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge on April 25, 2016 and was assured that I would get a $200 plus $25 Costco card after 12-14 weeks. It has passed the 14 week period and the people at the Kiosk at Costco have no clue, however, they kept assuring me that this was a good deal at the time of purchase. Costco is such a rip-off, and nothing is being done about the rebates. Called Verizon and they do not have a number for Stuart Lee Rebates, neither does Costco. How do these companies do business with a company that does not have a Customer service number. I am frustrated and will be complaining to the BBB about both Costco (as the kiosk was on their premises, hence they are responsible) and Stuart Lee Rebates.

Frustrated, frustrated, frustrated at these rip off companies. Shame on you Costco

Consumer Fraud

I bought a new phone at Costco in December 2015 from the manger who promised me either a 225 or 250 Costco or Visa Card Rebate.
I asked for a copy of the rebate paperwork and he said we don't give copies, I send all the paperwork over at the end of the night.
Well, I never received the rebate card and I have went to the Kiosk 8 time with did not receive help - the only assistance I received was a RUN AROUND. At this point I fee; this was Consumer Fraud by the manger who is being deceitful and plainly a dishonest person who should not be in employment. I have found Costco to be a pretty honest company. I have purchased phones at other Costco Stores and have been given the rebate paperwork and have always received the cards which took awhile but I received them. The manger at this Kiosks is a a con artist and I was a victim of Consumer Fraud, At this point I plan on seeing what I can do legally for filing charges of consumer fraud. If I was conned, I am wondering how may other consumers at Costco were conned by the same manger, It is really sad to see Costco is employing and paying an employee who thriving on taking advantage of the consumer. At this point, I have comed to terms that I will never see the rebate card since he refused to give me a copy of the paperwork. I would like to see this employee removed from the employment of Wireless Advocate,

$150.00 Rebate

On 12/26/16,I took advantage of the $150.00 rebate offered by Costco when purchasing the apple 6s iPhone. After spending a few hours at Costco's Verizon's kiosk, with the purchasing and setting up my new phone I went home with the mistaken idea that the rebate paper work was taken care of by costco's employees.
On 2/29/16, I followed the advise given to me by a costco employee and sent in all the required paper work with a letter explaining the circumstances why it was so late.
I've been a loyal Costco customer for many years ( back to when it was called Price Club).
The reason it was sent in so late was an innocent mistake on my part. I haven't heard from Stuart Lee Rebates one or the other.
Can you please let me know what I have to do to receive my rebate.
Thank You,
Bruce Edelman

Costco/Stuart Lee Rebates

The rebates take 14-16 weeks. At first, I contacted Costco's marketing rebate specialist (you can call their corporate offices & they'll put you through to that person's voice mail). She DID call me back. I emailed her my conplaint & she said to wait the 14-16 weeks - and if it didn't arrive to contact her again. She was very nice and ernestly wanted to help.
So i stuck it out & at week 15, I did, in fact, receive my $200. costco gift card. So, all I can tell everyone is that the time frame completely sucks (I can't remember the last time a rebate took this long) - but it does go through. and if it doesn't - contact Costco headquarters directly and they'll help you out (do not bother with the local costco store, verizon, the kiosk - none of those people or entities will be able to help you.). Just make sure you keep copies of everything, so you can scan them in & email them to costco headquarters.

Rebate Denied Run Around

I purchase 2 Samsung S7 edge on the buy 1 get 1 free BOGO. Followed all criteria and was denied on the stuart lee website. Stuart Lee said to contact Wireless Advocates which I did and they said go back to Kiosk where I purchased from. The guy who sold me the phone submitted a rebate request form to send to district manager on 6/3/16. Two weeks later (today) didn't get a call back. I called the cell kioskin and talked to the manager Carlos and he said would find out what's going on (1040am) 6 calls back to see if he heard anything and said, "I call you right back." Final call at 545pm his worker said he already left for the day. I try calling the district manager Stuart Merritt and his voice mail is full. I text him everything I'm saying here and no response. I'm just gonna keep calling until something is done. Please if anyone in this area can help or has the same situation let me know. Thanks Loraine

Denied Cash Card

I was supposed to receive a cash card for adding services since November 2015 and I am yet to receive it. I now checked on line and it states that it was denied due 'Carrier Deactivation'.
I never deactivated my line and it is still in use today so I would like to know what I need to do in order to clear this misunderstanding and receive my cash card.

no cash card yet

I have the same complaints as everyone else and I want to let everyone know what I found out. The BOGO is through Verizon and that rebate information is on their website. They kept telling me they didn't have my UPC so I mailed it in a 2nd time. Nothing changes so I went on the chat and they inputted the number for me and they told me I should see Cash Card from Verizon in 2 weeks. The Costco cash cards is through Costco http://membershipwireless.com/index.cfm/go/content/do/rebateCenter I called the number 1-888-369-5931. The lady was very nice and told me that it can take 14 weeks after they receive the paperwork. I sent mine in 3/23/16 and they received on 3/31/16. So count out 14 WEEKS seems long. She was able to look up the rebate info for me and told me that I should see something by July 14 but give it until the 21. If at that time I don't see anything to go to the KIOSK I got phones from and they will fill out a form there and it should take 2 weeks to get Costco Cash Cards.

I hope this helps

No Rebare

We purchased 2 IPhones and switched service from AT&T to Verizon. We promptly sent in paperwork for the rebates and I followed up by stopping by the Costco kiosk to see if they could help. They were helpful and attempted to find any status, but there was no status or any indication of rebate attempt. I'm not sure where to go with this....this is $600 in story credit at Costco. We spend that in a month at the store.

$200 Cash card not received

On 12/15/15, I bought an iPhone 6s at Costco in Marina del Rey with the promise of getting a $200 Costco cash card in 12-14 weeks if I switched from AT&T to Verizon which I did. At 16 weeks, I still hadn't received my card and stopped by Costco to check with Barris who sold the phone to me. Today is now 5/31/16, 22 weeks later, and I still haven't received the card. I called Costco, talked to Barris who said to contact stuartleerebates.com and fill out the Where's my rebate? form on the lower right. I did and will wait 2 weeks to get my rebate. If I don't , I'll file a formal complaint with the Better Business Bureau and Costco.

More on Stuart Lee/Costco Gift Cards

ReCoil posted some very useful info. The Wireless Advocates number is 1-888-369-5931. Turns out they are actually a part of Costco. Stuart Lee's website claimed my paperwork was received two month late (BS!), so I called this number and spoke with a nice lady. However, early in the conversation it was clear she was not going to do anything more than tell me what is on Stuart Lee's website. Asked nicely to have the case escalated, and she accommodated. I didn't actually have talk to anyone in escalation area, but she said the case had been "pushed through" and I would receive my gift cards in 3-5 weeks. We'll see. But at least it feels like progress.

VERIZON KIOSK AT COSTCO

The same thing happened to me at the Verizon kiosk. I tried to contact Stewart Lee . There is no phone number to contact these people. I am very unhappy with costo and Verizon. They say they don't have any documentation in their system except for one headset. The information for two headsets were mailed on the same sheet. How does that happen? I never had this problem with c-spire. Can't wait to switchback.

I found some rebate information

Ok here is what I have been able to gather. StuartLee Rebates does not approve, or Deny any rebates. That is all handled by Wireless Advocates, the owners of the Kiosk at the Costco stores. If you want to get resolution you can contact them at 1-888-369-5931, or customerservice@wirelessadvocates.com. Good Luck .... it worked for me.

rebate

I bought Samsung galaxy S7 on March 19 with the promotion BOGO: $650 Rebate. Then I found out on April 19, rebate was denied due to Costco's mistake. They didn't put my order in so they couldn't find my sales record. Back to Costco, and they said they will take care of it. Just got a call yesterday, May 14, 2016 from Costco said that I will not get my full rebate due to 2 upgrades instead of new activation. I did have new activation nimber on March 19. So I did everything that they want me to do to get the rebate but now 2 mths later they said I can only get half rebate $325 or return both phones. I asked Costco if I can take with whoever make those decision, but they refused to tell me. So I told Costco, it's not my fault, I will keep the phone and want my $650 rebate as promised. Costco will call me back with an answer. If no answer until next week, I will file complaint to Costco, Wireless advocates, and T mobile. This is not my fault why should I make a choice to accept their proposal either to return both phones or $325. Will not buying from Costco again and will not recommend to anybody.

Stuart Lee Rebates

I guess I am not alone with my complaint! Purchased two phone in November 2015. Check on the status, says denied, due to carrier deactivation. Really? I have had the same cell phone plan with Verizon for over 10 years. I just sent an email with copies of my cell phone bill, shows active! This is the 2nd time Stuart Lee Rebates has screwed up with my rebates. I'm not sure if they just have an inept rebate system or staff but it's very unacceptable. When I discussed this problem with my local Costco manager it was explained that Costco rents or leasing the cell phone kiosk to the people who sell phones. They are not associated with Costco. I said as a consumer, I buy an item and get a Costco receipt, I think they are associated with Costco and they need to look into this problem. I am thinking we need to look into a class action suit against Stuart Lee and possible Costco. Has anyone looked into this or have any thoughts?

No rebate yet - 14 weeks later

I purchased my Galaxy S6 at Costco in Danvers, MA on January 17th. Mailed the paperwork the next day with tracking. Stuart Lee website says they didn't receive it until Feb. 9th, which is incorrect since I have the damn tracking. Now here we are on May 11 and still no friggan rebate. It has been showing as pending on their website for over a month. I better get my damn $150!!! Sadly, I referred a few co-workers to Costco to get this "amazing" deal and none of them have received their rebates either. What's up with that??

Rebate

I have the exact same issue with a Samsung phone and a new iPhone. Maybe everyone needs to complain to Costco and then find out who owns the kiosk's in the store and start hounding them with calls. This is absolutely ridiculous and such a SCAM. The website for support is an absolute joke. I am also surprised that Costco would do business with them too!!

NO REBATE!!

This is definitely a scam and I, like the others, are very surprised with Costco! I purchased my phone on Jan 16, 2016 and have been trying to get information on their lousy website. There is no information available. I think it is ridiculous to have to wait 14 weeks and even more ridiculous that on their website they say they update the information every 2 weeks. WHAT A RIP OFF!!! You better believe I will be writing corporate Costco about this lousy service. Furthermore, when this contract is up I will be changing to another carrier. I'm not falling for this load of crap again!
