Cashback isn't working for me because it cannot find the link where the lens is going for ~1970.

Add the lens to your cart for the sale price, then go to mr rebate and link over. The lens is already in your cart for the sale price and you get the cash back.

Did that on the 12/23, order shipped on 12/26 and received 12/29. But nothing appears on mrrebates yet. They do mention that it takes a few days. Any personal experience on how long it actually takes?

Turnaround for a recent Adorma purchase was about 12 hours after shipment notice. You're stuck in limbo right now (which sucks) and likely will have to wait the 30 day window that Mr R allows for transactions to appear/post.

After years of doing click throughs (and double dipping click throughs) I've basically settled on the following method.
1) Find what I want at retailer X. Log in, add to cart (applies if cart persists across sessions... if not, see note at the bottom)
2) Clear cookies, cache, etc.
3) Close all instances IE/FF/Chrome/Whatever browser you are using
4) Log into click through/referrer site
5) Find retailer X on click through/referrer site and click on their whatever % CB link
6) Log into retailer x in the window/tab that opened due to click through
7) Proceed through checkout process

A bit obsessive, yes. But when dealing with large-ish purchases where the CB played a major role in deciding where to buy from, I typically don't like to leave much room for error.

Note: If your cart does not persist across sessions, start from step 2. when you get to step 7, simply find what you want and add it to your cart.

Yeah, I ordered last 12/25 and shipped on 12/27 and mine isn't showing either. I'll just request it again after 30 days.

Thanks for the response. So is there still a chance that it will appear within 30 days? Are there any actions that can be taken to speed it up or to appeal?
My mrRebates click history does show that I went to Adorama on the day of purchase.

to me, it's always been a bit of black magic how they verified missing cash back. Normally once the 30 days pass you can submit a missing cash back request (it should be a link in Mr R's FAQs) where you provide them with an order #, an order total (typically pre tax/shipping), date, store etc. After you submit that, then you're at the mercy of whoever decides if it is valid or not.

The fact that your Mr R history shows you went to Adorama is a good thing. It shows you clicked through. However, if it is a guarantee that you get the CB is another thing all together.

Best of luck. I've found Mr R is *usually* pretty good about crediting missing CB as long as you aren't trying to game the system (multi click throughs, using coupons from other sites etc).

Mine showed up the next day. You just need to be sure that your click history on Mr Rebate that it shows you clicking to Adorama, which you did.

I have never had one show up after more than a few days, however I have reported items after 30 days and they have always added them for me after I have reported them. Just make sure you watch as I think after 60 days you are out of luck.

turnips and duane0524 thanks for your responses.

Will wait 30 days and file an appeal. Worth a shot for almost $80.

$78.96 to be precise. Make sure Adorama is in your click history then appeal the cashback. Good luck.

Yes, just call Customer Service and tell them you need a price adjustment. You will need to give them your previous order number and the item number associated with the new price (B&H # SHCA7020028L). Takes all of a minute depending on your hold time.
