Ultra Rebate Center: Texas is now a Canadian Province!

Close Encounters of the Cheap Kind has a new home at www.CheapEncounters.com!

I thought this was kind of amusing. Looks like maple syrup may be the new “in” condiment in the Lone Star State Province, according to the folks at the folks at the Ultra Rebate Center who have designated Texas as being a part of Canada, the land of poutine and ketchup-flavored potato chips.

The folks at the Ultra Rebate Center sent me a rebate check for $24 CANADIAN, drawn on Caisse Centrale Desjardins in Montreal. The check also has the mailing address listed as Houston, TX 77XXX CANADA.

I called the Ultra Rebate Center and they said they’ve had this issue a lot on this particular rebate and they would reissue the check in USD within the next two weeks.
