I just got my Autolite Spark plug rebate and am waiting on my Monroe strut rebate.

Do you often buy because of rebates and have no problem getting them?

It would be smart but I never do. I do use coupons and discount codes though.

I have been doing the M1 rebates fairly regularly and they have always come through.
I make a point of sitting down at the computer, scanning the receipt, and submitting my rebate request as soon as I get back from the store. Could probably do it right at the store with my phone, but I hate trying to type in info on that thing.

Walker exhaust burned me out of $40.

I sent all the stuff in properly, and got a postcard saying I didn't. I called the 800 number, operator said, hey let me pull up your scans. Oh, yeah, you're good, wait another couple weeks. Rebate tracker section of their website reads "approved-- gonna mail in 2-3 days." Still waiting, 2 years later. mad

Discount Tire Direct has been the big cahuna for rebates and always comes through for me, with hundreds of dollars on the line.

Very rarely unless I purchased the item because of the rebate.

Between store deals and MIRs, I'm totally stocked up on various flavors and grades of M1 as well as some PP and QSUD.
Quality oil for less than a buck sixty a quart average seems like a stash-worthy deal.
You can often also find useful MIRs on tires, oil filters and various other products for your car, like the plug and strut MIRs you found.
Valvoline MIRs have become uncommon while those from Castrol have always been quite rare.

I had to buy a bunch of car wash stuff. I waited for Autopia's recent 20% off sale.

For the most part good luck with Mobil, Pennzoil, QS, and Goodyear but will never do a Purolater again (burned) and it seems that the clearinghouse for a lot of rebates (Inmare or something like that) is looking for every excuse to deny for household product rebates. Seems like only the oil rebates are worth the hassle, all others too small and too difficult to comply.

I did a Monroe rebate last Spring. Took a long time and a few phone calls, but I did get the money.

I never cared for MIR deals until discount tire direct honored them with their visa gift card rebates. Made it possible to get quality tires at a helluva deal. Now I like using the oil rebates as well.

I suppose I'd try other MIR rebates in hopes of continuing my string of good luck, but other than DTD and oil rebates, my best discount finder has been the internet lol

In Canada, we hardly get them, and when we do, they're pretty obscure. The last one I got was for Anco wiper blades. It was for all U.S. states and Canadian provinces.

I use rebates they are hit or miss. I've been waiting for my QSUD rebate for over a month now. Retiring from IT after 29.5 years I have to tell you they make something that should be as easy as pie a little difficult and confusing. I have to believe it is intentional.

If/when a rebate actually appears in my mailbox, I consider it a pleasant surprise; I never depend on it.

I've had success with Shell/Pennzoil, Gabriel, Cooper, Pep Boys, Advance Auto, Napa, and Fram rebates. Fram is a sister company to Autolite, so I don't see why you're having trouble getting the rebates. Maybe an email to Motorking might help smile
