Update: The power of social media in action! Brita has announced on its Facebook wall that it IS now honoring the rebate. Here’s that announcement:
Great news! We are going to honor all mail-in rebates that were recently available. Thanks you for your patience during this situation and sticking with Brita. Enjoy your rebate!
Uh oh. I smell a social media ****storm coming!
On this week’s Walmart deals, you may have noticed that there was a money-maker on the Brita filter. That money-maker was due to a $10 mail-in rebate from Brita. A rebate, which, according to Brita’s own paperwork, was supposed to be good until the end of March.
Well, it seems that Brita has “run out of supplies” (of $10 bills??) and won’t be honoring any more rebates.
See their Facebook page for more information, but here was one response to a question on their wall:
Unfortunately the rebate supplies have already been exhausted and we are unable to honor any additional rebates. I’m sorry for the inconvenience! If you would like to make a formal complaint, please visit our website at http://www.brita.com/contact/
