Rebates: Savings or Scam?

Written by Gary Gray

Continued from page 1

1. Look at who’s issuingrepparttar rebate,repparttar 138364 manufacturer orrepparttar 138365 retailer? Manufacturers often use rebates to remove excess inventory or to clear out products forrepparttar 138366 latest models. If it’s a retailer who’s offeringrepparttar 138367 rebate, and what’s their true motivation? Why aren’t they just offering a sale? These retailers are really just playingrepparttar 138368 odds hoping you won’t redeem your savings, so be aware.

2. The paperwork: Be sure to keep receipts, UPC codes, and sometimes even a cutout ofrepparttar 138369 product picture or text onrepparttar 138370 box. Readrepparttar 138371 fine print onrepparttar 138372 rebate form (don’t leaverepparttar 138373 store without this) to know exactly what to send in. Be sure to fill in every field, don’t leave your email address blank, your form could be rejected on a technicality! A hint is to set up a separate free email address at hotmail for a lot of you ‘potential’ spam mail. This address can not only be used for rebate forms but for online newsletters as well.

3. Keep good records. I’d suggest markingrepparttar 138374 deadline forrepparttar 138375 rebate on a calendar, and thenrepparttar 138376 date they staterepparttar 138377 rebates will be sent out – if it’s 8 weeks afterrepparttar 138378 deadline, mark that. Make copies of all receipts and UPC’s before sending in your information. Be sure to take care of all of this within a few days of purchase, many timesrepparttar 138379 rebate does not depend on expiration but on a date that can be only 7 days after your purchase!

4. Don’t be afraid to call. Oftentimes I’ve foundrepparttar 138380 only way to get my rebate is to call, with records in hand, to explain my situation. I NEVER leave my rebate to chance, because I know I’ll eventually forget! After all, that’s what they expect!

Nowadays, I’ve resorted to using savings I can realize atrepparttar 138381 point of purchase, and no longer rely on rebates for my bargain hunting. Since most of my shopping is done online these days, I’m resorting to online coupons and coupon codes where I can verifyrepparttar 138382 savings before checkout. Am I gettingrepparttar 138383 best deal? I think so; I never was one for paperwork.
