I don't believe Samsung ever intended to issue my $100 monitor rebate request
when
I sent in all the requested information (including a blood sample ... not
really).
After all the work I did, they sent me a terse email saying they couldn't
read
the UPC symbol. They said for further clarification, call this toll number.
The
customer service representative immediately put me on hold for 3 minutes,
then
he came back with the same message on the email. Did I mention this was
Samsung?
