How to Easily Claim Belle Tire Rebates
When you realize you need to get two or more tires replaced, the feeling you get is not usually a pleasant one. Beyond the time, there's the expense. Even if you opt for cheap tires, you're probably talking about a few hundred dollars at a minimum. And depending on your vehicle, the cost of just replacing one tire can be painful.
If you're a Belle Tire customer, you know the automotive service retailer offers some pretty attractive rebates. However, not everyone remembers to cash them in or knows how to do so. It's never good to leave money on the table, so here's what you need to know about claiming your Belle Tire rebates.
Why Do Tire Companies Offer Rebates?
Why do tire companies offer rebates in the first place? If they stand to lose money doing so, are they offsetting your discount with cheaper tires or shoddy installation? Those are worthwhile questions, especially if you're a new Belle Tire customer (or of any automotive service provider).
First, of course, tire rebates can attract customers. Some customers are diligent about buying tires when rebates are available. Some even remember to complete and return the paperwork. But many - by some estimates as many as 40 to 60 percent - don't remember to do so. That means the money goes straight back to the tire company and rebates offer the perfect opportunity to capture significant consumer data, which can be used to sell you other products.
Finally, tire rebates can help tire dealers and automotive service retailers move unused inventory. If a dealer has excess tires, offering a rebate can help them get rid of unwanted stock.
What Kind of Rebates Does Belle Tire Offer?
Belle Tire offers various rebates on different tires. While these rebates are time-limited and change every so often, Belle Tire's current offers provide attractive discounts:
|Cooper TIre||$40, $50, $70 (Selected models)|
|Bridgestone||$70 or $90 (Selected models)|
|General Tire||$50 or $70 (Selected models)|
|Goodyear||$25, $50, $100 (Selected models)|
Of course, as Belle Tires sells more of each of these brands, the exact rebates being offered are subject to change. So keep an eye on their rebate page for the most up-to-date information.
Why Claiming Tire Rebates Isn’t Easy
Despite the colorful flyer or display ad you may see advertising the latest tire rebates, claiming these offers is often difficult. Rebates often come with instructions that are difficult to understand, and so many rebate applications are rejected for having been completed incorrectly.
Some rebate offers come with tight deadlines, after which they are worthless. And with busy schedules being the norm rather than the exception these days, it's easy to forget to complete the paperwork before the deadline expires. Or in some cases, you may misplace your proof of purchase and not be able to track it down before the offer expires.
Further, some rebates are preloaded on debit cards, which must be used by a certain date. Sometimes these debit cards come with maintenance or other fees that help the company claw back a part of your rebate. It's just as easy to lose half or more of a claimed rebate due to the fine print as it is to forget to claim your rebate by the deadline.
Now, not every company offering rebates does so in a shady manner. But it's easy to find complaints about company-issued rebates online. In fact, one complaint concerning Belle Tire's rebates on the Better Business Bureau website - in which a customer received a preloaded debit card with a $0 balance - illustrates another rebate issue. Many companies outsource rebate fulfillment to a third party, which means you could be in for quite a hassle when following up if your rebate is delayed or in the wrong amount.
How to Claim Your Rebate From Belle Tires
Despite the multiple rebate offers on Belle Tire's website, their process for redemption is fairly straightforward. On their Rebate page, you'll need to enter your Rebate Number, Order Number, and Customer Number into the appropriate fields.
However, simply clicking submit does not necessarily get you your rebate quickly. You'll still face challenges redeeming your rebate for the full amount given:
- Tight rebate offer deadlines
- Outsourced rebate fulfillment
- Preloaded debit cards with maintenance fees
- Human error
And that's if you've submitted your information. Many of us receive multiple rebate offers each week, so just keeping them straight is tedious, let alone redeeming all of them. Unfortunately, it's all too easy to miss out on your Belle Tire rebate.
