Question for those that did online rebate

I just bought a Shield 9 this weekend to take advantage of the mail-in rebate. I filled out the rebate form online and hit submit. My computer was being dumb and I'm not certain if it went through or not. I somewhat expected to get an email confirmation stating "thank you your form will be reviewed and blah blah blah...." but got nothing.

Did anyone else fill out a form online? If so, did you get any sort of email confirmation?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I decided to answer my own question. I called S&W and asked. They of course are having a 3rd party run the rebate portion of the program. They gave me a number to call.

So I called the 3rd party (Milano Promotional Services) and they stated that it will be several weeks before they begin to process these rebates. They stated that there is no confirmation email that gets sent. The best they could offer is that after 2-3 weeks, check this website to see the status of your rebate:

I'm kinda pissed at myself for ordering a Shield 45 on March 31. Haven't received it yet tho. Wonder if they will disallow my claim for a rebate.

Have you actually paid for it yet? If you put a deposit on it, the day you pay the balance due is the date that is considered the purchase date on your receipt.

I just saw your post about the M&P rebate. I just filled out my rebate request for my M&P PC Shield 45 online yesterday. After I submitted the rebate I got a short reply:
Your "Savings You Can Carry" rebate submission has been received. Please allow 8-10 weeks for fullfillment of valid rebate requests. Please print screen for your records."
So to answer your question, yes, I did get an email confirmation. Hope yours turns out OK.

I dunno if it's anything to worry about or not.

Back in '08; I did their "$50.00 or two free mags" rebate twice, and they're still around.

I took the mags, of course.

They just came oit with the m&p 2.0 so I bet the shield 2.0 is coming soon. So they are trying to push the shield inventory down.

Another possibility is that because we have a Republican president now, much of the gun buying frenzy is over and sales are leveling off. Sales are good, but they aren't at the panic driven rate that they have been the past eight years.
After 8 straight years of record production and sales of guns, the gun manufactures are used to making that big profit.
It could be that this is just a way to boost sales because of lower than expected gun sales. Once you're used to making those big profits, it's hard to settle for less. Also, when sales drop manufacturers have to layoff workers.
If the Democrats had gotten in, I'm sure that gun sales would be booming again.
There might be something to the rumor of a Shield 2.0 version coming out, but I doubt it (but what do I know?).
As far as driving down the inventory, I just picked up a PC 45 Shield and it was built only about 2 weeks before I received it. So it doesn't seem that the inventory is so big that it needs to be driven down.

Waited 4 weeks. Went to website and entered zip code and last name only. Came back with valid submission accepted on
April 14 2017. Called number on website and was told it would be realistically 10 weeks before I send a check from them. I'm satisfied and looking forward to my $75 rebate.

I went to check the status and it said the 'savings you can carry' and smith and Wesson.. then under total rebate amount it said 0.00... it is like that because it hasn't been paid yet or is there something wrong? Anyone's says the same or is it supposed to say an amount?

Everyone calm down. Sheesh. You will get your rebate just like they said. Keep checking the Milano site, eventually it will be updated for you.

There is more important things going on the world, than for some of you to obsess over a foolish reabte.

It will come, enjoy your great new gun in the meantime.

Thanks.
