The Consumerist, the site where "shoppers bite back," didn't like our recent articles on rebates. The bloggers there say we unfairly blame consumers for failing to redeem rebates, when it's really companies' fault for making the process so difficult. At least we got some love from the readers' comments, where some pointed out we were just reporting it as we saw it.
