It’s amazing that retailers still do mail in rebates. How about instead of offering a rebate you just offer a lower priced product by the rebate amount. You will move more product and not bait and switch.
I don’t clip coupons because they are a waste of time and I’m not going to purchase a product, cut out the barcode, copy my receipt and wait for the mailman to steal my rebate. Western Digital still owes me $50 from 1998 for a 500 MB hard drive.
