    This is probably more a psychological exercise for myself :smile: but just wanted to take the crowd's pulse and see if anyone has received their Visa gift card rebates yet? Was for the accessory rebates on the VF-2 and HLD-6 grip promotion back in January/February. How long did fulfillment it take from mailing until receipt?

    The last FlashAir card rebate with my E-PL5 took almost exactly 2 months from mailing to receipt. This one's taking a bit longer, I mailed materials on Feb 3 - but wasn't acknowledged until 2/17, so I'm still in the 8-10 week range.

    I'm chomping at the bit to get a certain lens, and am hoping help fund it with this $.

    I got an email saying my rebate claim was eligible (this was the VF-2 deal) but no VISA yet.

    Ok thanks, Yeah I got that too. Rebate status is pretty useless-says 'We have received your submission and it is being processed", but then again so does FlashAir card rebate status which I received over a month ago.

    I'm still waiting on mine from the January rebates. Really slow rebate.

    Yeah, I got a VF2, but I haven't seen anything yet either.

    UPDATE: Some movement on online rebate status this morning.
    "Your submission has been processed and your response has been mailed"
    So, hopefully soon.

    I submitted my rebate for the vf–2 at the beginning of January and just received it about two weeks ago. FYI.. It was supposed to be a Visa gift card but they actually sent me a check.

    I purchased 2 lenses back in February, another in April and a flash in April. I received the acknowledgement of the lense rebate some time ago...but as of today no VISA cards have arrived in the mail.

    It took quite a while for receipt of my March flash rebate to be acknowledged. I was beginning to worry it had been lost in the mail....

    Like twokatmew, I was beginning to wonder. I checked the rebate status online and it said I could expect it 5/10; however a check arrived last week for the 45 1.8 rebate.

    I bought a VF-3 with an $80 VISA card rebate last January. I kinda gave up and figured it was a lost cause. But, it's interesting to know that others also haven't received their rebate cards.

    Sounds like I'll be getting mine in July then. I much prefer the instant rebates. :eek:
