Help To Get Your Mail-In Rebate Check

Posted: Updated:

Many of you may be tempted to buy things, with the promise of those mail-in rebates. But get ready for some extra work if you want to collect. Mail-in rebates can save you a lot of money sometimes, IF you pay attention to all the details.

You've seen it... a company offers a deep discount on a big ticket item, like a TV or computer... in the form of a big mail-in rebate. But there's a catch.  You have to do the legwork if you want the money. And more than 20% of the time, customers either don't get their rebate, or they're turned down on a technicality. Don't be one of those customers.  So here's what you do:  

  • Read the instructions.  Some of those rebates require a number of extensive steps.  Miss one and you could lose your rebate altogether.
  • Pay attention to the amount of time you have to act on that rebate offer, and don't delay.
  • Make copies.  You want to have a record of the rebate around in case anything goes wrong.
  • And keep all the packaging from the product until after you get your rebate.  You may need something, like that UPC code, to get your money.

Good luck!  Hopefully, you'll get the money you've got coming to you.  Go here for more tips to get that mail-in rebate.
