CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Mark McKnight used part of the rebate he got for buying a new cell phone right away.
"I spent $42 of the $50," McKnight said.
The rebate came to him in the form of a card, similar to a gift care however he would learn this card had much different rules.
"When I tried to use the balance the card was declined", McKnight said.
He is not the only person this has happened to. We have learned that the reality of rebate cards is that it isn't easy to get your money's worth.
We set out to find the best way to use these cards so you can get all of the money you are due.
