Thompson Center Rebate

I bought a Thompson Center Omega Z5 in October, it had a $50 Rebate offered and I claimed it per instructions. I got a check yesterday from MPS the servicing company that listed Smith and Wesson as the Rebate owner. I took it to the bank today and was informed that they couldn't cash it because it was over a year old. It appears that the rebate company dated the the check 2/23/2008 instead of 2009. It clearly states that checks are not valid over 120 days from date of issue, making this check invalid months ago.

I did not even buy this rifle until October 2008. Do you think this is a simple mistake, or is this another example of a rebate scam?

I am calling the company Monday and then calling Smith and Wesson if they do not issue another check.

Anybody else have this issues?

I've heard of no other cases like this. Sounds like a simple mistake to me.

T/C is famous for standing behind their guns, so I would imagine they'd back you up on the rebate. *

And if you have a October 2008 receipt, that's proof you could not have applied for the rebate "a year ago".

My older brother got his rebate recently, with no problems, so with a call to explain what's up, T/C should fix this for ya.

* Just don't send an e-mail, as those often don't get replied to. And FYI, with layoffs and furlough's at T/C, try to be patient with the few hard-working customer service folks who are still there taking care of the customers. I've called on T/C 2 times over the last 6 months and got great service each time. Hope you make out as well.

Tight groups.
