Frugal Column September 25

Mail-in-rebates can be one way to help drive the price down on a product. But don’t forget to send in the form, if you don’t that good deal becomes a bad deal. Consumer Reports states that about half of consumers don’t redeem their rebates either they forgot or just say it is too complicated. Here are some hints on how to make sure you get your rebate. You do need to read exactly what they want on the rebate form. Focus on the details. Many forms say a P.O. box will not work, see if anything needs to be circled on the receipt, does the envelope need to be a certain size or addressed by hand, what additional receipts and UPCs do you need to include. Always check when the rebate expires. You will be surprised that some companies only give you seven days. The best way to ensure that your rebate arrives before the expiration date is to send it in on the day you purchase the product. I keep a box of envelopes and stamps in my car so I can fill out the form right away. It also saves me from getting mad at myself because I have lost a receipt. Would it be beneficial to make copies of your rebates? To protect you against lost mail or to dispute a rejected rebate, make a copy of all submission materials including the stamped envelope, completed forms, UPC code and rebate center contact information. I don’t do this for small rebates but the rebates $100 or over, I do. You will see many rebates now for cellular phones, televisions that can produce large amount of savings. Write yourself a reminder for the expected arrival date of your rebate so you’ll know to keep an eye out for it. Rebate checks often come in envelopes that look a lot like junk mail, so be sure to sort your incoming mail carefully. Many stores like Staples and Sears are letting you submit your rebates online. This reduced the chance of human error and eliminating your postage cost.
