Did You Purchase Any Hasbro Board Games?

Before Christmas, Amazon had the Hasbro Games on sale. There was also a rebate from Hasbro on them. I purchased a few games for Christmas Gifts. I then sent in the necessary documentation for the rebates. I received a letter from them stating that I had not sent in the original receipt. Anyone who shops at Amazon, knows that you download your receipt from the Internet. So I called Hasbro at 1 800 353 1347 and I explained that I had sent an original and if I were to send another one, it would be computer print out as well. The man was polite and checked my information. He said they had been having a lot of trouble with the rebates. He thanked me for calling and said that my rebate would be on its way. Did any of you purchase games from Amazon that had the rebate? If you did, you don't need the letter, assuming you did get one though. All he needed to pull up my information was my name and address.

While I didn't buy Hasbro games and apply for a rebate, I have often wondered how a rebate would work if one shopped online and printed their receipt. I have had more than one grocery store try to refuse grocery coupons that I have printed from the internet (see my current discussion) so I feel certain that many rebates might be denied based on the receipt being self-printed.
