Newegg’s rebate trickery?

Newegg's Fujitronic FR-EH
I was looking for a new rice cooker when I stumble upon a Fujitronic FR-EH 10 Micro-Computerized Rice Cooker & Warmer being offer by Newegg for $39.99 after $70.00 Mail-In Rebate. After seeing this I thought I would be able to stop looking, until I clicked on the link to the rebate form. After clicking over to the form I was presented with two separate forms for $35.00 rebate each, and each of these forms requires you so send in two original UPC codes.

So seeing that I needed a total of four UPC codes and the rebate stating it’s only limited to only “ONE rebate per product, receipt, household, family or address,” I decided to email the company to see if there are indeed four UPC I can use with two different mailing address (to circumvent the address requirement). So I receive an email telling me that “You will only be able to submit one rebate.” How funny is this, they advertise that buyers are able to get a $70.00 rebate, but when you actually buy it and try to submit for the full rebate, you will only be able to only get one of the rebate for $35.00.

I will definitely avoid this company for my future purchases. Hopefully, this helps anyone who happens to be looking to purchase this same item and expecting to send for the $70.00 rebate.
