Schick Hydro Rebate

By Hilda

I had picked up the right Schick Hydro razor for the rebate, and carefully checked the UPC code, and mailed the receipt ($9.98+tax), the rebate form with the UPC to them.  Unfortunately, I did not photocopy the receipt :(  So, I did this on July 17, 2010, and today on September 20th, I called Schick Rebates @1-800-284-8073.  The person I spoke to asked my name and address, and said, we’ve not received anything yet (9 weeks later!).  I asked her how often does mail get lost in your pile there, and she said “this is the first time we’ve encountered this problem, I’m sorry”.  There was nothing they would offer, even though I told her that I will never purchase another Schick product again.  I had purchased this razor because of the rebate.  It’s not right that they could not offer me some kind of coupon/voucher to get a free razor, just to keep their customers happy.  I had purchased this product just because of the rebate, and I will never buy anything from Schick again!!!

    I too purchased a Schick Hydro razor only because of the rebate and still haven’t received a cheque from them. I haven’t called them but I did copy the receipt - I hope I still have it.

    I thought the same thing happened to me but low and behold
    I had a cheque in the mail yesterday 8/11/10.
    Always keep a photocopy of mail in rebates so you can fax or
    email them the copy, learned my lesson the hard way.

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune Hilda.
    I had no problem with my rebate, but it did take quite a long time before I received my Rebate Cheque.
    Hopefully, they’ll find yours soon!
    Good Luck!

    Mailed my rebate in early September and received a cheque yesterday (Nov. 8). No problems, but that is about 9 weeks.

    I don’t know… If I were them and someone claimed to have sent me mail I never received, asking for money they had no proof of claim for, I probably wouldn’t do anything either.

    Rebates notoriously take months.

    I too only bought the razor for the rebate. I always photocopy receipts as well because mail does get misplaced. My brother and I both sent away for the rebate at the same time and his came weeks before mine did!

    That sucks, I’m sorry to hear that. They could have at least offered you something. I definitely recommend photocopying any mail in rebate submissions. I started doing that recently because of other SC members going through the same problem.

    I bought one of these razors as well, and the rebate too forever! It’s possible that they do have it, but it just hasn’t been entered into their system. There’s still hope it might still be on it’s way.

    Duh obviously you need a copy of your submission. They can’t just write a cheque to anyone who calls and CAIMS they are owed

    How is any of things Schick’s fault?
