Rebates


A lot of people do not take advantage of rebates. Manufacturers know this and that is why they don't bank of loosing too much money when they create them. One great rebate program we have spoken of before is from Walgreens with the Easy Saver Catalog. However, some people don't realize that many manufacturers also have rebates of their own.
.
I personally love rebates because often times you get the item for FREE (or even make money if you used a coupon.) For example, if I got product x for $8 but used a $2 coupon, I would pay $6. The manufacturer is still going to rebate me the full amount of $8...exciting, isn't it?
.
A Few Helpful Hints When Rebating
.
1) Fill out the rebate form as soon as you ge.t home. Instead of creating FREE coupons, manufactures often create free after rebate (FAR) forms because they know the consumer will buy it with the intention of mailing in the rebate and then forget about the product.
.
2) Many rebates are because of satisfaction purposes. You can get a rebate if you are unsatisfied with a product. There are many reasons to be unsatisfied with the product: wasteful packaging, price, taste, quality, etc.
.
3) Keep track of your rebates. I keep an excel sheet with the date of purchase, the location of purchase, the item, the price, and the address to where I mailed the rebate. I also mark down on this sheet if there is a contact number.
.
4) Rebates usually require the UPC code (cut out of the packaging) and the ORIGINAL receipt. That means don't buy 5 items you want a rebate for on the same receipt. You will need to mail the original receipt for each item. Some people like to make photo copies of their receipts in case there is a problem - I have not learned that lesson yet, but it is not a bad idea.

Aren't some of these not "rebates?" Money Back guarentee should only be used when your not happy, right?
