I purchased 5 appliances from Lowes.com on black Friday 2016 totaling around $5000. Part of the reason I bought from Lowes was that they offered a rebate of $3-400 on the GE appliances I bought.
Each appliance description stated that it was eligible for the rebate. I called Lowes to apply for my rebate on 11/28. On Jan. 13, 2017 I got a card from Lowes stating that the receipt didn't indicate 'qualifying appliances'.
When I called 'customer care' they said the receipt was lacking an invoice number. So I had them email me my invoice number which I resubmitted via fax. After 2 weeks I called & they said they needed an official receipt; so I had Lowes create another receipt for me. I faxed the new receipt.
After another 2 weeks I called & was told my receipt didn't include the invoice numbers. It says "invoice number" right on it. I resubmitted via fax a second time. When I called today I was told that there was no record of either fax (despite being told 2 wks.
ago they DID have record of my previous faxes) & that (of course) today was the last day of the rebate. I faxed the same papers a THIRD time today. I am livid & beyond frustrated! From now on Home Depot will get my business.
And I am still waiting for delivery of these appliances too.
I see now why Lowes customer service rates 1 star. -10!!
