    Post REBATE Tips!

    Rebate Tips

    1. Read all rebate form(s) thoroughly!

    Each rebate offer is unique. They usually have different date ranges and different proof-of-purchase requirements. Some rebates require serial numbers, while others may require photocopies of certain pieces. The best way to make sure you get your rebate is to follow the directions carefully. If you have any questions, call the toll-free number listed on the rebate form, or call the store where you purchased the product. Either one should be able to assist you. Some products may have multiple rebate offers on a single purchase. In these cases, make sure you carefully follow the directions listed on each form as the return address and submission requirements may be different for each offer.

    2. Make copies of all of your paperwork!

    This includes your receipt, rebate form, barcodes, mailing envelope, and any other items that are needed for validation of your rebate. If for some reason your submission gets lost in the mail, you will need this information to have your rebate re-processed. It is also a good idea to have this information in front of you if you need to call the customer service phone number listed on your rebate form.

    3. Don't throw out the box!

    Most rebates will require you to send in a UPC barcode or a serial number barcode from the product packaging and may not honor your submission without the original barcodes from the box. If you are purchasing large items with a rebate that require unpacking prior to putting them in your car or are having items installed in your home, please be sure to remove the UPCs and serial number labels before discarding the boxes. If there are multiple boxes, please write down the product name on the back of each UPC and serial number label so you know which documentation belongs to each product.

    4. Don't procrastinate!

    Many rebates require you to postmark your submission within a set number of days from your date of purchase. If you miss this deadline, you will not be able to receive your rebate.

    5. Make sure your name and address are clearly written on the rebate form!

    If your handwriting is difficult to read, it will be difficult to enter your information correctly. To ensure fast, accurate processing of your rebate, be sure to print clearly! Also remember that P.O. Boxes are usually not acceptable addresses for many rebates, so please read the terms and conditions on the form carefully.
