I signed up for HughesNet instead of Viasat because of the $300 gift card promised. After a couple months and no gift card, I entered my Hughes net account and wrote asking about it, but received no reply. A couple weeks later I wrote again, and still no reply. Then, I decided to call, this is the week of December 6th...after two days of getting the run around, I finally get the information I need--kind of. I'm told to down load a certain form and mail it in. Great. Today I print off that form only to see that it says it must be "postmarked by Dec 1st" to be valid...On top of that, I try chatting with a Hughes net employee who says the first invoice must have the rebate plan written on it or it's not valid--which no one else bothered to mention--and I'm told to call the first number which gave me the run around the first day I called. It's a scam really--they leave us in the dark, so we don't know what to do; then they complicate it in the hopes that people will not follow through until it is too late!
