so i bought a sansa mp3 player a few montha ago and sent in the rebate form around 6/24/06 or so. I still havent received the check yet though they say it mailed on 9/26/06. first isnt 3 months a little excessive to process a rebate check? reminds me why i never bother buying anything with a rebate. also the od rebate site says it has been mailed and cleared. i dont write checks often so i cant remember, when a check clears doesnt that mean that it has been cashed and taken out of the account of whoever wrote it?
