    I received a status e-mail from them about 6 weeks ago. I checked last week, they said it had been processed and is on its way. Due to arrive before June 12th. They must have tied it to a homing turtle!

    Seeing this thread just reminded me about my March accessory rebate. Although it took them *forever* to admit they'd received my submission, it now says my rebate has been processed and mailed ... and that I should receive it by June 12. (Offer #46323)

    Woo hoo! :biggrin:

    Yeah they take their sweet time :mad:, but you will get it.
    I submitted rebate for VF-2/HLD-6 F Grip in February:
    Mailed 02/03/13
    Received check 04/26/13
    That's ~11 weeks total, however they took 2 wks after mailing to acknowledge receipt of materials and I presume that's when the 8-10 wks turnaround starts. Oh and I received a check from Olympus - not Visa gift cards, which was fine by me.

    Did you order a BODY and a LENS??? I made the mistake of just purchasing the 17mm lens (I had purchased the EM5 last year.) and was waiting and waiting for the rebate check.
    When I called - actually the 3rd phone call - I was informed that I has mis-interpreted the rebate form and needed to get the EM5 body at the same time (or at least within the rebate period) to qualify for the rebate. The form that I printed - after registering on the olympus rebate site - was not clear about that.

    Just received a letter from olympus. They rejected my rebate because employees and dealers are not valid for this offer.

    And I am not employee of any olympus dealer. What can I do?

    I just got off phone with them. I was told to send them the copy of the receipt again. Seems like they don't keep rebate materials we sent in on file. To me, that seems like they don't take rebate claim seriously. If they screw me over on this one (total of over $600 worth of rebates). I am sure I will never buy Olympus product again in my life.

    It took me several months to get mine (an e-vf2 purchase), but it finally came.
