So you buy a mixer that has a $10 rebate. You get the rebate and then using Costco’s generous return policy, you decide a while later that the mixer just isn’t working out. So you take it back to Costco for a refund.
You wouldn’t pocket that $10 rebate, would you?
Don’t feel bad. I would, too. But for the honest souls out there, I discovered today that Costco has a way for you to reimburse those sad manufacturers who gave you a rebate on a product you returned:
If you received a Mail-in Rebate check and since have returned the item and would like to reimburse the vendor,
you may either:
- Forward your rebate check (DO NOT void rebate check) to Costco Wholesale
- Forward a check made payable to Costco Wholesale for the rebate amount
Wouldn’t you just love to know how often somebody actually does that? It’s got to be very very rare, don’t you think?
