Purchased the gun at the end of May for $1450 before rebate. +1 on the authorized dealer comment (lots of deals on GunBroker, but need the authorized dealer to get the rebate).

Got my rebate today from Benelli... Took 4 months though
Only The Dead Have Seen The End Of War -PLATO
Finally sending mine off this weekend. We'll see how long it takes to come back.
6 weeks for mine
This is on my to do list. I just don't trust rebates. I have had bad experiences in the past with mobile phones. Of course I had great turnaround time for Lowe's paint last year. I am guessing Benelli doesn't have anywhere near the number to process as some companies.
Well just watch your email for the status of your rebate. Sad thing is I waited and waited just to get a reply saying my purchase didn't meet rebate requirements. I bought one of the items pictured right on the damn rebate forum and provided an almost 8 x 11" copy of the reciept and UPC. I would really hope it wasn't because I sent a copy of the UPC as Benelli themselves said it was good enough.
I mailed my rebate in on 9/29 and I received the check on 10/28. I think they say to allow 6-8 weeks for processing so I got my check faster than I expected. Just an FYI for anyone mailing in their rebates. Make sure you actually cut the UPC from your Benelli box and mail that with your receipt and rebate form. Benelli will not accept copies or pictures of the UPC. This is to avoid anyone from trying to get more than one rebate. I believe they will accept a copy of your dated sales receipt but just to be safe, I had my dealer print a duplicate copy of the sales receipt to mail in. Also, make sure that you buy your Benelli from an authorized Benelli dealer or else you will not get the rebate. Benelli has a list of authorized dealers on their website.
Anyone have a phone number for the Benelli rebate department? I believe that I only sent in a copy of the extra UPC included in the box instead of the original. I'd like to call em before I mail something else out that might muddy the waters.
