Is there a way to get UPC labels from a box?

Page 2 of 2  


"No, the UPC and serial number labels are NOT part of the box. They are another paper label pasted on just like the UPS label. Only they were like 1"x2" in size, and the big UPS label on top of it, is 3"x5" in size. Hope this is more clear now. "
It still is not clear what you have successfully removed with the hair dryer. Is it the UPS label that was covering the UPC? If so, why can't you now just cut out the piece of box with the UPC label on it and send that in?

Again, you seemed to have called everybody except the perpetrator. Call UPS and ask them how they should fix it. They should at least be able to find out the solvent for their adhesive. Maybe even they could deal with the rebate people if you cant get the lable off. I don't know how responsive their customer service people are, but it's worth a try.

UPS just delivers the stuff - the labels are applied by the shipper.

Actually it IS their problem - their shipping dept. puts the UPS shipping labels on - NOT UPS.
Probably an employee gets his jollies by stickering over all the barcodes on rebate items.
A liberal soaking with Bestine rubber cement thinner (art supply store) works great on loosening labels too.

Go back to the website where you made the purchase. Ask them to scan the upc label for your product and email it to you. Print it and send it in with your rebate cert.

No rebate house would accept that. The O.P.s beef is with the product supplier. They sold a product with a rebate promise, they owe you the rebate, even if they stuck a label over the UPC. You could ask them to mail you a UPC. It's a lot easier when you are dealing with a local store. Call the seller and talk to them. Ask for the next level of management each time you are told they can't help you.

There is a product called un-du, sticker, label, adhesive remover. It's a little squeeze bottle with a plastic scraper attached. Available at office supply store, craft stores, scrapbook stores, Wal-Mart etc. It doesn't even damage the adhesive, the label you take off would be reusable.

You're probably screwed. But the good news is that manufacturers seldom pay $100 rebates anyway, even if you send in everything perfectly.
I would use a penetrating oil to ruin the adhesive. The labels should peel off a day or two later. Too agressive of a solvent may dissolve the ink on the UPC label.

manufacturers seldom

perfectly.
I've never failed to get a rebate, although a couple have required persistance.
