This is why you guys should have ordered from an actual stocking dealer like Euro Optic that has a bunch of them sitting on the shelf instead of a dealer that stocks nothing and dropships them. Jason will cut you a deal too (just call), but no they can't operate on making $50 on a scope when they have actual overhead and are actually sitting on inventory. You would have paid a little bit more but you would have gotten it in time and avoided the stress of wondering if it's going to come in time and qualify for the rebate.
Thanks Mom, I'll know for next time. Nothing like a little browsing on the hide to remind me I'm a poor. Buying it from Scott was a stretch, put it in my card and paying it off next month. Most expensive glass I've ever bought by 2 fold. Without his price, I wouldn't have bought it. ?‍♂

Just an update for anyone still waiting on their kestrel. I was one of the people that they lost their rebate approval. I emailed them asking for a shipping update and they gave the the standard 4-6weeks.....
“It appears your Kestrel is on order! Please allow 4-6 weeks for shipping from the date of the approval (4/1/2020).”

If I would have known liberty didn’t actually stock them I would have done this.

I emailed them, they said there was delays due to covid 19, they thought they were coming last week, and now they hope they are coming this week.

Got an email today stating they received a shipment from Kestrel. Could be next week before they ship out as they're shorthanded in distribution center.
