Indeed. All companies should be so quick to address this sort of issue.

For Canadian customers, please hold on to your check and do not attempt to cash it.
That is BAD. It means there is either no money in the rebate account or the account has been totally frozen due to the Chapter 11 filing.

It's not good news, but at least it's news and they're working on it.

I thought the Ch.11 filing was in the US, though? So why can they pay off US rebates but not Canadian?

You really have to pity the poor bastard who drew the short straw and got chosen to let BFG know that, eh? "Uh, yeah, the money you gave us... it's not available anymore."

.... OR people are PROPERLY filling their rebate forms (big grin) Those companies make money off of a percentage of rejected claims, and they anticipate a certain percentage - I guess people are more careful now and actually send properly filled forms

I trust BFG more than anything - I always deal with them and never had ANY problems with my rebates - I check through rebatestatus.com and have not had any issues yet. It's GOOD that BFG will issue you a new check if yours gets bounced and all (I hope they also cover the administrative fees :D)
