Why rebates? Why not just temporary reducedrepparttar 147403 price like a sale? I am sure you have asked yourself this question many times.

The answer is quite simple really. Some companies offering a rebate do not want to give you anything. They just want to lure you like a fish to bait. The bait is an imaginary price you will pay forrepparttar 147404 product. The ad usually shows in BIG numbers this price andrepparttar 147405 actual price in tiny numbers. Once you get their product home, they hope you will happy withrepparttar 147406 price you think you paid and forget about it.

Did you remember to pick up a rebate form? They hope not. Would you go back to get one - probably not. Some places are printing outrepparttar 147407 rebate form with your sales receipt (applause!). Some companies putrepparttar 147408 rebate form in with product. Watchrepparttar 147409 rebate expiration date. Sometimes a product will sit onrepparttar 147410 shelf too long andrepparttar 147411 enclosed rebate will have expired.

Ok, you haverepparttar 147412 rebate form. READ IT! Read all of it - normal print, fine print, front and back. Look at offer expiration and "purchased between" dates. I got burned once buying an advertised rebate product a few days beforerepparttar 147413 rebate actually started. What you are required to send? My favorite isrepparttar 147414 original sales receipt. What if you have purchased two items with rebates? What isrepparttar 147415 processing time and a point of contact should you not receive your rebate check within that period? I suggest puttingrepparttar 147416 contact onrepparttar 147417 calendar onrepparttar 147418 last day as a reminder. Ifrepparttar 147419 rebate does not have a phone number contact you stand a chance of getting burned. I have on three separate occasions. I suggest you go torepparttar 147420 rebate center atrepparttar 147421 store and picking up rebate form and read it before makingrepparttar 147422 purchase.
