Rebates - Reward or Rip Off?

>> Sunday, October 17, 2010

Rebates have become increasingly popular in recent years a large number of items and certainly on electronic items and computers. $ 20 rebate, $ 50 or $ 100 are not uncommon.

I've even seen items advertised as rebates This "free after rebate." The term "too good to be true? Some of them do and there are" catches "to watch, but if you are careful, rebates can help provide very good.

The way a rebate works is that you pay the listed price for an item, then an electronic form and the bar code for the manufacturer and they send you a refund thus reducing the price you pay for section, but with a delay of a few weeks.

Rule No. 1. Exit from reputable companies are usually very good.
You can be sure you get the promised rebate from Best Buy, Amazon or Dell but you should probably not count on getting a company you've never heard of. If you really want the product and are OK, the posted price to pay, then buy it, but do not expect to receive reimbursement.

Rule No. 2. Check the expiration dates of repayment.
Many times products will stay on the shelf of a retailer after the date of despatch of the refund offer has expired so check that date carefully.

Rule No. 3. Be sure you have all the necessary forms to submit for consideration before you shop.
Rebates will almost always have a form to fill out a receipt for the purchase and a barcode.

Rule No. 4. Back up your claim.
Make copies of everything you send your money back, including the barcode. Orders lost in the mail all the time and if the refund is $ 50 worth for your application to save.
