This Motley Fool article by Jeff Fisher talks about the ballooning practice of product rebates. I've noticed this when I go into Best Buy. Its hard to find the real price without doing the math to add the rebate back in. I must admit I've sent in rebate forms for some items I've purchased. Can't say that I've received the rebates. Jeff posits that this is intentional, somehow it would surprise me. Jeff's advice is to never consider the rebate when making a purchasing decision. That way, if you get one, it will be a bonus.
