Companies Offer Rebates – Give Debit Cards Instead
Nackman & Feinberg, LLP is currently investigating deceptive and unlawful practices by companies when they offer consumers rebates but instead send pre-paid debit cards.In addition to not receiving the cash rebate that consumers expected, many of the pre-paid debit cards have spending restrictions, expiration dates, and that incur fees such as a monthly penalty for non-use in which the balance is automatically reduced by the issuer.Some consumers also are complaining that they are not able to spend all of the money on their rebate cards because some retail stores will only accept a payment with the rebate cards if there is a certain minimum left on the cards.
Consumers have complained about this “bait and switch” deception with such companies as Norton, Symantec and Hewlett Packard.
