Rebates: good if you remember to send them in!

Have you ever bought something because it was "such a good deal after the rebate" but then not actually sent in the rebate form and receipt? Or maybe sent it in but had it rejected for some reason? Rebates really can help you be thrifty but can also have less then impressive results. A recent article outlines why and the title says it all:

Stores like rebates because shoppers are lazy

Some rebate tips:
- Make sure you read the fine print and follow all of the guidelines
- If you need to mail in the original copy of a receipt, make a photocopy for your records
- Send in the rebate or go online and fill out the paperwork the minute you get home, before you use the item

Good luck!
