Rebate Revelations: Tip-of-the-Day #144


When you exercise a rebate it's important to remember a few things. Namely:

1. Read the fine print.
Always look for the date by which your rebate must be submitted and be sure to include the required proof(s) of purchase, like your receipt, a UPC label, etc.

2. Don't forget about your rebate.
If you forget about it and the company you mailed it in to forgets about it, who is held accountable? Keep track of everything you mail in for so that you have proof when you need it.

3. Don't miss the deadline.
The window in which you can submit your rebate can be tiny...don't miss it by just sitting on your form thinking you'll do it tomorrow. Send it in!

4. Consider connecting with other people who use rebates too.
The internet has provided us with a wealth of options and opportunities when it comes to networking. Use it to find people who may have access to goodies that you don't!

5. Look for rebates before you make your purchase.
If you need a DVD player, look around before buying it on Amazon. You may find that a local electronics store is having a special and a rebate could save you quite a bit of money - even over the already discounted go-tos like Amazon.

You're probably not going to be able to make this a full time gig, but you'll save a few bucks.
