What are Refunds & Rebates

It is well worth the effort of sacrificing a few minutes of your time to complete the forms necessary to get these rebates and refunds, after all you are entitled to them. You will also need to pay for an envelope and a stamp but your refund check could end up being for $25 or more. It takes very little effort to complete these forms in their entirety and with a few moments of your time you will get money that is owing to you.

Make sure you read all of the details associated with the refund and the rebate. You will likely have to submit your original receipt as well as your proof of purchase from the item in order to get it. It is always wise to keep a copy on file for your own reference also. Many people just take a picture with a digital camera too as proof that they did indeed get this information and submit it.

Try to get a copy of the completed form that you are sending as well. You will want the address and the phone number to contact them about it if you don’t get your refund and that will be on the form. Many refunds and rebates can take six or eight weeks to process and in that time many people forget about it. It is recommended that you take note of when you should have received your refund in a diary so that if not received then you can chase it up with the appropriate person.
