A rebate is an amount paid by way of reduction, return, or refund on what has already been paid or contributed. It is a type of sales promotion that marketers use primarily as incentives or supplements to product sales. The mail-in rebate (MIR) is the most common. A MIR entitles the buyer to mail in a coupon, receipt, and barcode in order to receive a cheque for a particular amount, depending on the particular product, time, and often place of purchase. Rebates are offered by either the retailer or the manufacturer of the chosen product. Large stores often work in conjunction with manufacturers, usually requiring two or even three separate rebates for each item. Manufacturer rebates are sometimes valid only at a single store. Rebate forms and special receipts are sometimes printed by the cash register at time of purchase on a separate receipt or available online for download. In some cases, the rebate may be available immediately, in which case it is referred to as an instant rebate. Some rebate programs offer several payout options to consumers, including a paper cheque, a prepaid card that can be spent immediately without a trip to the bank, or even PayPal payout.

    Federal Ammunition Rebates

    Does anyone KNOW for certain if Federal allows the "stacking" of their rebates? Federal has several rebates going on for different products. For example, one could get a rebate for rifle ammo and a different one for shotgun ammo. Say the max rebate per address is $50, does that mean the $50...

    FYI: S&W rebate is not $50 for pistols.

    Sent in my rebate for military and law enforcement and was under the impression it was $50. Got the card and it is only $40. Went to the S&W rebate website and couldn't find any reference to the amount. I swore it was $50... Then I did an internet search and found this image on a forum...

    Anybody using federal 12ga slug rebate? (50 c per round)

    I noticed that federal truball slugs have a nice mail-in-rebate, $10 on 4 boxes. In store price is $4.99 a box so total after rebate is 9.99 for 20 slugs or $.50 per round. I usually buy 00 Buck but saw these at local store and seems like a good deal...
