ƒµ¢{¡ŋ6 rebates...

Remember when rebates used to come as a check? Sure, they were a pain in the ass to apply for, and they took for-fucking-ever, but when you got them, you got a piece of paper that you could take to your bank and deposit into the account of your choosing.

Well, those days appear to be long gone. I just bought a bunch of computer components, four of which have rebates. Not only are they still a pain in the ass to apply for and still take for-fucking ever to arrive, but now you don't even get a check! No, you get a Visa or American Express "gift card" with the rebate amount loaded onto it. So you can't deposit it, and you can't use it any place that doesn't take credit cards.

Fuckers...

Everything has gone like that, including some pay checks and definitely tax refunds. I think it is so they can keep better track of where we spend out money, but it definitely is so that the credit card companies make a profit.

Yes. Fuckers.
