I'm going to talk about some tips on how to use rebates to get items for free or at the very least, deeply discounted. So the first thing here is when you're out shopping you can often see rebates attached to the product. This can be at the grocery store, or at office supply stores, electronic stores, all kinds. They'll literally have it advertised on package, mail-in rebate. You can also see these previous, they might come in your Sunday circulars or even online where they'll reference these kinds of rebates.

So you can be prepared and know that they're offered out there. Now, when you use those rebates it's important that you understand all of the rules and stipulations attached to it. So you've got to read the fine print. There might be rules around the size of the product, specific brand, you name it. So just make sure that you understand what that rebate applies to prior to that purchase. When you ultimately send that rebate in write legibly. If they can't read it you're not going to get sent back any kind of money or check.

Also make sure that when you make that purchase, try to make only that one purchase. Whatever you're trying to get a rebate on, purchase that in a single purchase because then you'll have one receipt that you can send in. They are not going to accept copies of receipts, so make sure you have an original receipt you can send in. The best way to do that is by making that individual purchase. So there's just a few tips on how to use rebates to get items for free.
