Extreme Couponing Tip: Rebates

  1. Send them soon: Always, always send in rebates within 36 hours of buying the product, whether it's for $2 or $40. Cash rebate checks soon after you get them (you can wait until you have more than one and cash them together to save time). Most rebate checks expire within 60-90 days.
  2. Scan all items: Be sure to make copies of all the materials you send out. Keep them saved as pictures in a file on your computer. Move them into a separate folder or rename the file when you receive the check. If it has been over the allotted time stated on the rebate form, contact the company. You may need to send the scans to them as proof.
