Good job Smith and Wesson, you scammed me out of $75.
Enjoy it. Guess what brand I won't be buying in the future?
hint: [American Outdoor Brands Corp.]
Instead of attempt to work with them to solve the issue, you immediately jump on here, of all places, to accuse S&W of a rip-off and a scam, and make a promise of no business in the future?

You must be a real joy to have around.

S&W is a reputable company, and if you comply with the rules, you will receive the rebate.

I am giving the benefit of the doubt to S&W and am guessing there was a problem with your documents.

Work WITH S&W, not AGAINST them on social media.

So what you want me to believe is that you fronted the cost of 30 boxes of ammo for three different friends and all you wanted them to do was give you their rebatecheck? I gotta tell ya I have heard better stories from my clients. The one that comes to mind was when they found dope in my client's pants pocket and his defense was "Those ain't my pants". Mighta worked if he wasn't wearing them at the time.
I "think" that you bought 10 boxes of ammo four times and then used three friends names and addresses to try to score 4 different rebate checks. Hell nothing wrong with that pardner, I've done it myself many times-but don't sit there and insult my intelligence with THAT story.

Oh and assuming that your story is true and your friends did indeed keep the ammo than you are correct it wasn't a straw purchase. But I sure wouldn't want to bet my freedom on that story if it was going in front of a jury unless your friends were there to testify under oath in support,and then maybe not even then!

My "rebate" with the mags, ammo and mag loader went just fine, My receipt had the date, store it was purchased from, make and model but no serial number on it. Took a month from when i filled it out online to when i received it.

This is quoted from their own online rebate form.
"Upload a copy of your sales receipt (dated, store-identified sales receipt that clearly shows the item purchased.) *"
It says nothing about it requiring a serial number on it.

They never did put the rebate on the site to check the status though so i didn't know it went through till i received a email from fedex saying i had a package coming with a tracking number in it and it was coming from
"SAW
Paducah, KY 42003
US"

Most have been a Fluke, since on both of my Rebate forms there was a space and it asked for the Serial No. which i filled in.

Hopefully mine will mail soon since my last rebate showed up with my 1st on Milano as of 3 days ago.

I hope they combine both my orders and wonder if signature is required? Since am not home a lot of times!

Oh it asks for the serial number elsewhere on the form but it dose not ask or require it to be on the copy of the receipt, that's all i was trying to clear up.

Mine didn't require a signature, they just left the package at the door.

I got my rebate two days ago. Purchased a .45 from Palmetto State Armory (over the counter, not ordered online) and submitted rebate on June 27th. My name NEVER appeared on Milano's site even as late as last week. Never got any notification that they had accepted or were processing my rebate.

A friend bought 3 Shields and submitted rebates online. Checking Milano website and it only showed one, but all 3 arrived in the mail a few days apart.

Glad it finally got to you!
My first rebate was around May 5th, got the check in mid August... I think they were processed out of order. Just done randomly.
