Anyone else waited 5 months for the Icom rebate on the IC-7300?

    I have a tracking # and I can check the status but no rebate for a radio I purchased in July from HRO. I've waited 3 months for a Dell rebate before but nothing like this. I just wondered if Icom treats anyone else like this.

    Most companies that do rebates have the rebate handled by a 3rd party.. And that 3rd party will try to make it so that some "Vital" piece of information is not submitted, missing, Invalid....

    ESPECIALLY computer products....
    Happened with me on a couple computer accessory boards....

    I bought a 7300 in October, got the rebate last week. I’d reach out that seems to be a very long delay.

    It took two and a half weeks in my case, but that was three years ago, long before the pandemic and Post Office problems. ;)

    I think of rebates as a short term loan for the company. They will try to hold it for as long as they can, but more than 90 days is totally unreasonable.

    Five months is four complete lifetimes for a fruit fly.:(

    The rebate for my 7100 is also taking some time....
