Got the (rebate) card?

I've noticed a new thing in the rebate game ... instead of a check, or a merchandise credit (which I really don't like) ... the latest is a credit-card branded gift card.

Interesting. I guess it's now cheaper to buy/pay fees to administer the card than it is to cut a check. Given though how electronic payments are taking over, I wonder how long it will be before the rebate companies start requiring a PayPal account that they can send the $$ to ...
