In some instances, submitting a rebate is as easy as mailing the following items:

  1. Filled-out rebate form
  2. Copy of the purchase receipt
  3. Bar code from the product’s box

Sometimes more steps are necessary. Here are some tips about things companies may require:

  • Tip – Make copies of anything you mail!
    After filling out the rebate form, make copies of everything you submit (including the rebate form). In the event that you don’t receive your rebate in time, you will be able to contact the company and provide them with the exact information mailed, so that they can track and give you the status of your rebate.
  • Circling the date of purchase
    Cirlce the the date of purchase on the receipt.
  • Circling the product
    Circle the product and price on the receipt.
  • Model number
    Model numbers may appear on the product box and/or on the product. Sometimes the model number is found in the battery compartment.
  • Serial number
    Serial numbers appear on the product. Sometimes the serial number is found in the battery compartment.

    Here are some more Free After Rebate tips:

    1. Follow the directions exactly and send in the rebate on time. If you don’t bother to send in the rebate, you won’t end up with a good deal.
    2. Make photocopies of UPCs and rebate forms. That way you have a record in case you have any problems.
    3. Follow up with the rebate service if you do not receive the rebate in the expected time frame.
    4. Be Careful on how many outstanding rebates you are owed, to be on the safe side in case there is a problem.

    Make sure you scan and keep copies of all your rebate forms. If you ever get denied just call them up and tell them you have copies of everything. 9 out 10 times they will say “Whoops, sorry it was our mistake. I see your information is correct” Some rebate processing companies are told to randomly select rebate forms and decline them. They hope the people will not fight them or forget about them.
