I (again) contacted Rural King yesterday regarding two rebate that were never sent. Today I received an email from them regarding whether or not I had received an online order I placed on February 16 ! But no response on my rebate inquiry. This company has the biggest problem with communications I have ever seen. Yes, I RECEIVED MY ORDER. The bigger question is WHERE ARE MY REBATES ????

I received a rural king gift card for a Christmas gift and want to spend it on a firearm but the store doesn’t stock the gun I want. I thought this would not be a problem since the manager said I could order it from RKGUNS.COM, but I cannot use a rural king gift card at and the store cannot special order the gun I want. The store had no problem selling the gift card but didn’t tell my wife about this ridiculous rule ( or they didn’t know either) . Please help!

I placed order on 11/25/17 for item online order(100905259). I have called last week(11/12/17). Sent text on 11/15/17 and talked again with service center 11/17/17. I have yet gotten a shipment confirmation. That means the item still hasn’t shipped. Not a happy camper. Everyone at service center wants to reimburse my credit card. If I didn’t want the item I would have never ordered it start with. Can you find out the status of my order and why it’s taken near 30 days!
