I recently read part of an artricle that showed that most people never take advantage of rebates, even though many bought the product because there was a rebate on it!
I wish I had the numbers, because they showed that even most of those people who specifically bought the product because of the rebate still didn't submit it...
In other words it is a marketing tactic designed to generate sales, without taking a direct hit in the pocket for EVERY unit sold...
If they expected everyone to submit the rebate, they would just use instant rebates instead, because it would save them having to pay the rebate processing costs...
