1) I've never NOT recieved a MIR, and I've applied for many of them. The only time I've had a problem was with a couple Xigmatek MIRs during the holiday season in 2011. Sounded like they bit off more than they could chew offering free case fans and super cheap CPU coolers (Loki for ~$5) via MIR. I had to contact Xigmatek rebate processing (they do rebates in-house), which was apparently only one woman (swamped), sent her my scanned copies and exchanged a half-dozen emails. Ended up taking 6 months to recieve the MIR after I first mailed it in, but I got it. Most MIR's come in a couple months (without paying the expedited service charge). Save a copy!!!
2) Visa is widely accepted. American Express rebate cards are a little harder to spend, but I haven't had a problem with them either.
