Creative Rebate and Switch

The Consumerist reports on a discovery made by someone attempting to collect on a $10.00 rebate from Creative Labs that came in the form of a debit card. The card was denied when it was used, because Creative charged a $3.00 maintenance fee to the card every month until its balance reached zero. They point out that this really does make this Creative rebate a "creative rebate," and wisely suggest that if you have such a rebate card you should make use of it before suffering a similar fate. Thanks Mike Martinez.

if Creative/ATI/NVidia/etc/etc really created such bad products, they would go out of business, replaced by someone better.

Umm.. How do you figure? You can't be replaced by "someone better" if there are no others. Seriously. What, you think some other companies would just miraculously pop up out of nowhere, thinking "oh look, nobody makes videocards anymore! Maybe I should start!" ? Right.
