Help, I lost my receipt! Now how do I get my rebate?
Not to worry. We've come a long way from the days of handwritten receipts and carbon copies! Most stores can reprint you a receipt, especially if you paid with a credit card and know the exact date of your purchase.

Is it best to send a copy of my receipt and hold onto the original?
You'll need to review the rebate form (or legal description) to see whether or not the manufacturer asks you to send the original. Many times they just ask for a copy. Again, if you send your original, always keep a copy for yourself.

If I'm asked to send the original "UPC," what does that mean?
sample UPC symbolThis means you need to send the product bar code, usually found on the packaging. But some boxes may have several different looking bar codes, and it can get confusing! If you are unsure, ask someone at the point of purchase or call the customer service number on your rebate form.

I forgot to send in for my rebate and now it has expired. If I send it in late, will I be able to get my rebate?
Promotions such as rebates are carefully planned for very specific time frames. If the postmark date has passed for your rebate, unfortunately you will not qualify. But truthfully, what makes a rebate special is the fact that they aren't offered all the time - so check your dates and apply promptly!

The store I went to advertised a rebate for a product I bought, but they didn't have the rebate forms! Am I out of luck?
Not at all. Most leading manufacturers will have websites listing the rebates and offering the forms for you to download. You can select the "GET YOUR REBATE" link on the page to search our database. If you still can't locate a form, contact the retail store where you made your purchase. They'll stand behind their advertising! Hopefully they'll have received more forms since your last visit. If not, they should offer a suggestion as to where to go next.

This also ensures that all information required to validate your rebate is accurately captured. You still must mail in the rebate form and all supporting documentation to validate your claim to ensure that the correct product was purchased during the promotional period.
